Over-the-knee socks that actually stay up...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mysocks® Over The Knee High Long Socks All size for Men and Women (Apparel)
Until recently it had never crossed my mind that one could purchase socks like these in men's sizes. Once I saw the ad on Amazon I thought I'd give it a go given that I'm required to look smart in clerical clothes most days no matter how cold it gets in the Cathedral I'm attached to. They work a treat although, as other reviewers have mentioned, the grip at the top can feel rather tight....indeed bordering on the uncomfortable. My solution is to wear them with tight, lycra, running shorts that reach the knee. By pulling on the socks over these shorts they cling to the lycra while the shorts themselves act as a buffer which makes the discomfort from the top of the socks a thing of the past. I've ordered another three pairs, just in case the originals wear out suddenly - with me having to resort to men's traditional short socks that just flap around the ankles. Couldn't bear to be without them this winter.
