After washing, they end up below the calf. However, they are well cushioned.
I have worn some Falke socks (cotton/wool/nylon blend) which stayed up, did not bind my legs and were fairly good. They did not offer the cushioning effect I really like in the luxury wool socks. But they are recommended.
I also routinely wear Pantherella. They stay up very well and do not bind. Although wool, they lack the padding effect from Marcoliani that I really crave.
Have you had any experience with Pantherella cotton socks? I'm not a particular big fan of wool socks (personal preference).
I also ordered the thicker Viccel socks last week, and they should be getting in within a week or so. Hopefully they'll work for me.
Anybody else have this problem?
