Well - the good news is that the tops of these certainly didn't pinch or bind. The not-so-good-news is that that comment's based on one wear only. Why? Because that's how long they lasted! When I first put them on, I discovered a hole in one of them, I thought I could possibly have caused it while removing the nylon tag...but I was in a hurry so I decided I'd wear them & repair it when I took them off. When I got home there were FOUR holes that needed repairing. Three of them had not been there that morning...& all four were on the legs - so it's not as if they could have been caused by shoes rubbing.
I'd paid much more for these than for other oedema-friendly socks because I'd heard they were 'the best'...well I beg to differ. They are very fine knit, which I have absolutely no problem with (indeed like) but what I don't like is this level of fragility. Other reviews of this brand have complained of holes but I foolishly chose to ignore them. To those reviewers - thank you for the warning...just wish I'd heeded it!
