i am 6'4", socks come all the way up to my knees and stays up all day. snug & comfortable fit on a size 15 foot. use them for work and sports.would rate them a ' 5 ' . i wash them by hand to avoid lint issue. will be purchasing more.
the nike football compression socks are essentially the same, i would rate the nike a ' 4 ' because they are not as long and they tend to slide down through-out the day, but nike socks do not lint up.
both are very good socks.
both work well as compression socks.
