Tips for Getting the Fit Right
  • The most important thing: Make sure your heel is in the heel pocket and the band sits below your knee.
  • Resist the urge to pull the socks up as high as possible. Our socks are made with lots of stretch and flexibility for maximum comfort, but this often means you can pull them past the knee. You want the band to sit at the top of the calf, just below the knee. 
  • If there is extra fabric in the calf or foot area, adjust so that the fabric is distributed evenly. Then use your hands to smooth out any wrinkles and make sure the socks lay flat against your legs.
