Over the past 20 plus years I have tried and worn several brand name support hose. They were all a terrible fit. I have short legs and even when I purchased the women's petite knee high support hose they came up too high and the tops rolled down causing pain, discomfort and restricted blood flow. The first day I put on the ALPHA sole socks, I was impressed with the fit and the comfortable compression. They come up to the right height for me, reduce the lower leg swelling and neither bind nor slide down. Thumbs up for ALPHA Sole in getting these socks just right for this guy. I was so pleased with my first order of a dozen socks, that I immediately reordered another 12.
