Rated 3 out of 5 by CDToaster Not for muscular calfed men or small shoe sizes.
From the beginning I wondered HOW can one sock size possibly fit every man's foot from size 6 to size 12 and I was right to wonder since they're slightly large for me wearing a 9.5 shoe. In my opinion, these fit perfectly for shoe sizes 10-12.5, but definitely NOT for shoe sizes smaller than 9. Most others on this review board seem to be complaining Gold Toe should offer a wider selection of colors and I do agree, but offering a wider range of sizes would help more people. I truly can't even imagine how this sock can possibly fit a male U.S. size 6 as they claim since as I said, I'm 9.5 and they're a bit large, but they'll work. Gold Toe needs to offer a smaller version for sizes 6 thru 9 so if you're a size 6-9, you should forget about this sock or any sock that claims to fit both you AND a size 12.5. That claim is totally absurd.
They're extremely comfortable and high quality, that's for sure, and they feel great, but again, there can't possibly be a sock than can fit a size 6 though a size 12.5 foot!
Secondly, if you have muscular calves, they'll fall down (as all socks of this height do) after a short while. I don't believe there are ANY socks that stay up longer than an hour on muscular calves except those that extend over the calf (up to the knee). I have those too and I love them very much but these shorter, calf-length socks definitely slip down a muscular calf.
I hope my review is helpful and beneficial to all who could relate to the issues I tried to bring to the forefront of concerns, even more important than offering other colors. Offering two sizes should be of greater concern and a useful tip that potential buyers should be made aware of. I think the issue of offering additional colors is more of an issue to take up with Customer Service than on a review board.

I recently ordered these socks online based on the current reviews. One of the issues I seem to always have is that the socks I buy tend to stretch and then sag/fall down after a few washes and wears....and it drives me nuts! These socks have been great so far...good quality, comfortable and I don't have to stop every now and then to pull them back up.....it's the simple things in life, really.

SOCKS WERE SUPPOSED TO FIT SHOE SIZE 9-12. WHEN I PUT THEM ON THE HEEL CAME UP AS FAR AS MY ANKLE AND THE TOP OF THE SOCKS CAME UP TO MY KNEES . I WEAR A SIZE 9 SHOE. MAYBE THEY WERE MISLABELED.

My husband just loves these socks. He states these are the most comfortable socks he has ever had! He loves the "cushion" that they have. I will be buying many more of these for him!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chaslin Great sock...
Ordered 18 pair so that they would be all the same whenever washed; however they are not all the same. Some go mid calf and others go over.
