    Regular winter, true to size, over the calf. No problems with them falling down after many wears.

    @Viccel Socks I second the poster up thread asking for more muted, less saturated colors. I would definitely buy dark burgundy and deep plum purple socks. The claret and dark purple are far too bright and saturated.

    Have you tried their regular winter weight ones? What made you choose the heavier ones? I would wear them with brogues and oxfords, not boots.

    @jdp234 Do you find the regular ones to be too delicate?

    Trust me, the "heavy" is not heavy at all. Yes I also have the bi-color over the calf in regular winter weight. Unless you are used to nylon thin socks, then I would stick to the heavy. There's nothing winter about these IMO, and they are definitely not boot sock thickness.

    The regular winter weight is not delicate at all. It is a sturdy cotton. Not thin by any means. And it is in fact a little heavy for summer wear here in TX, I am thinking about getting some mid calf socks from Viccel to get a little more airflow going. I think the winter weight is a reasonable year round option for anyone in a temperate climate, and it is tolerable even in the dead of summer. Just not ideal for summer imo.

    This. Some of the viccel colors are really too vibrant for my taste. A true mid blue that’s not too vibrant would be great. Same as a nice burgundy, dark green, dark purple. I’d also love a true mid to dark grey.
