Well, I find this compression socks nice, they hold tight and seems to be of good quality, but I would ask them a bit more compression. It's not a product defect, just a personal preference. Overall, great compression socks.

These are so expensive, but they like the calf gaurds are the only thing that work for me. Would like a drawer full, but not affordable.

Very effective recovery socks - need to be sized correctly and cared for well 3 Sep 2013
By FreeSpirit - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name: BlackSize Name: Small Verified Purchase
I have become a big 2XU fan of late between their tri-shirts, running tights and shorts, compression run socks, and now these recovery socks. I had been experiencing soreness in my lower legs after the weekend long runs, and decided to try these to see if they could help reduce recovery time. These socks are slightly thicker and seem to have a thicker weave as well compared to their compression run socks. I wear them for anywhere between 3-5 hours after the long runs, and they really do help recover my legs much quicker. Earlier, I pretty much always had to take the day after the long run as a rest day. Not any more, now I can go for my easy runs the next day - really adds flexibility to my running schedule through the week!

Manufacturer's suggested sizing is as follows (I didn't see this information on the product page here):

Socks Size -Shoe Size:

XSmall - 4.5 - 7
Small - 7.5 - 10.5 (calf thickness up to 14.5")
Medium - 7.5 - 11 (calf thickness greater than 14.5")
Large - 11.5 - 14 (calf thickness 15 - 17")
X Large - 11.5 - 14 (calf thickness larger than 17")

If the size is even slightly big the socks can bunch up behind the knees, so it's important to get the right size.

Despite the tight fit and large size of these socks, they are relatively easy to get on and off. The elastic has been holding up pretty well so far. I have several pairs of 2XU compression run socks, and I initially made the mistake of putting those in the washing machine. The socks were fine, but the elastic on the top seemed to have become a little distorted. After that, I always hand wash these socks and hang dry. This has really helped keep all my 2XU socks in great shape after months of use. A very highly recommended pair of socks.

Used on long flights to Asia. Worked great! If you have ever had swelling or pain in legs when traveling long distances, get these socks!

Didn't Like 26 Jan 2014
By For Real - Published on Amazon.com
Colour Name: BlackSize Name: Large Verified Purchase
Love my 2XU Men's Performance Compression Run Socks, but these didn't fit as nicely, had a different toe box seam, different weave, and fabric content that I didn't find comfortable. Sent them back.

Compression socks for recovery, not daily wear (imo) 21 Nov 2013
By I love gadgets - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
While I may have needed a size up, they did seem like they fit ok...but darn are they tight (I probably have slightly larger than average calves however)! They are tightest at the very top of the sock. You can't really roll them down at all, or vary how you wear them to mitigate the discomfort because they're designed to go around the skinnier part of your leg near the knee. I had them on for an evening and eventually I had to rip them off because I felt like my legs were going to fall off. Good for recovery, but perhaps not great for regular wear.

Comfortable, durable and works great for recovery. I use them all the time, have washed them a ton of times md they still feel brand new.
