These are some of the most comfortable socks I have worn with my work boots. They could be tight if you have large calves. Socks do not slide down and my feet no longer feel sweaty or stink when wearing my work boots for 12+ hours.
I purchased these socks in the hopes they were close to the comfort and durability of the Carhartt # A2091. Not even close! These will go to the back of my sock drawer for "last resort" socks. I'll keep looking for a durable comfortable sock that, for some reason, you dis-continued. I think Deluth Trading may have the answer or maybe Smartwool.
