Light weight, breathable, comfortable, and durable. They do fit a little high for crew socks, and they are snug around the ankles but not too tight. This is an added benefit when wearing work boots or uniforms, as they don't slouch or loose elasticity, allowing them to stay in position for all day comfort. I work in the oil field and own several pairs.
Amazing socks....im very picky with what socks i wear with my Ariat Square Toe boots. I in fact couldnt find my original Browning socks for sale any more and tried 3 other types before finally deciding to search online for something very similar as to what i liked. To my surprise, these socks are even more comfortable feeling less pressure less sweat, a little tighter in the calf (i have a slightly larger calf than some) but stretching out as i wear them daily.....i absolutely love these socks and will be ordering more!!!
I just bought me a pack on Sunday and I’m wearing them to work now and I gotta say it’s worth the money. I’m a supervisor and I’m up on my feet all day. And my feet weren’t feeling fatigue at all at the end of the day. I love how they’re compression socks too it adds another boost of energy to my legs for a hard days work. I wish I was sponsored lol !
Had these socks 2 weeks now. Im a professional mechanic so im on my feet all day in safety shoes. Im impressed by the comfort and dryness this is a well made sock! I like them better than "snap-on" socks for summer but in winter I'll probably stick too the thicker ones
Socks have good cushion and soft but too constricting on the legs. I'm average size with size 11 feet . These fit like compression socks from ankles to over the calf. Unfortunately, they're so uncomfortable I can't wear them. I wish I hadn't bought so many pairs without trying first.
Bought my first three pairs in January. After wearing them for a couple of weeks I knew I had to have more. I am impressed by how these socks stay up when wearing. No sagging here. Great product. If you looking for a support stocking this is it.
A little disappointed. Thought I was buying crew socks. These are what I would call over the calf socks. I am a fan of Carhartt socks, but they need to make a crew sock that is actually like a crew sock such as the older style Carhartt's were. These are too tall for me.
These socks fit tight on the calf and feel like a compression sock. They fit just below the knee and fit my size 10 foot fine. They won't slide down during the day so they make a good boot sock. One pair did get a hole just above the ankle the first or second time I wore it, but that's the only one out of 6 pair and it hasn't got bigger after 6 months.
The socks are too tall. Buy the shorter ones. I read the reviews and noticed that people had mentioned it. So I measured the socks I had already to compare to the online measurements and these socks are much longer than advertised when put on. Other than being incredibly long they are great socks.
So tight couldn’t even wear them, disappointed i wear carhartt from head to toe year round size 13 shoe ordered xl. Size chart appears inaccurate for these socks. Nice quality but only for people with small legs and feet
overpriced for durability. The third time I wore them they developed a hole above the ankle. the material just separated. The cheaper socks I have lasted 18 months & multiple wears before I finally wore through a hole in the heel. If the Carhartts are not durable the quality must also be poor.
Good socks. Don't have to fight to get them on and off like thee olde cotton variety. Feel gets some getting used to and made my feet sweat intially. But are actually light and airy feeling. they are now my preferred all arounds
good quality, long enough, but very tight fit on calves
They are soft and comfortable in the soles, and fit well in the length. However, I have found them to be very tight on the calves, as they leave indentations no matter where I wear them on my leg (over the calf, or pulled down to mid calf or below), and I'd say my calves are average sized, so probably too tight if you have large calves. Can't judge durability well as I've not had them for long.
Description of product is inaccurate/misleading/uninformative
I’ve only had one day wearing these socks, so take my experience for what it is, not the be all end all. The socks are ok. My greatest disappointment is that nowhere in the description does it say they are over the calf socks. It just says crew socks. The cuff at the top is very tight and will likely cause discomfort after about 6 hours of wearing. I don’t have tree trunks for calves, so I imagine most will experience discomfort. I work 12 hour shifts, so these were not a good purchase for me. My cheap Target boot socks lasted about 3 years before the socks started getting holes in them (not in the foot, but in the crew cut area). Carhartt, please make your descriptions more clear. I will likely not buy again online because of that issue.
Cheaped Out Design Changes--They're not as good as they used to be
i have an older pair of these that are excellent. They have a heavy ribbed ankle brace section around the top of the ankle that works perfectly for my boots. These old socks are nearly indestructible even after heavy wear and use. i've worn them 3 days a week for several years.
So i thought these are great, why not buy some more and wear them everyday.
Well i'm thoroughly disappointed in the design changes, and disgusted at the flimsy attempt to copy the older version. The new ones use thinner and fewer stitches in the calf section and lacks the ribbing--they are like see-thru stockings compared to the older version.
Here's how you can tell. The ankle brace section of the new ones have vertical even-length colored stripes around the back above the ankle. The older version has short stripes on the back side which get progressively longer as the chevron pattern moves toward the front. This can be seen in the attached photos.
The new calf section is not as thick and sturdy, and lacks the ribbed pattern of the older version.
i wish Renfro would go back to the old version, they should be ashamed of producing the newer ones.
Very comfortable socks. Never fall down but are a little constricting for guys with big calves. Breathable too. Not recommended for winter use since they allow the cold air through too much. Chilly piggies!
I bought these socks in large cause they don't come in medium. I didn't think they would fit too well, but I couldn't pass up the sale for a 3 pk. When I got them, I tried them on and they fit like a glove. They're really soft and comfortable. Warm but my feet don't sweat. I now have 9 GREAT pair of socks that I can wear year round. Of course they're the best, they're Carhartt!!!
I’m a machinist and on my feet for 10 hrs on concrete. These are the best socks I’ve bought out of a couple of higher end athletic socks and various tube socks in a bag over the years. I bought them in white due to perspiration in boots. They are like walking on a foam cushion compared to my other work socks, and less perspiration and little to none of the little balls of cotton stuck in the heels of my boots or balling on the socks themselves. I bought 3 packs to try and buying 3 more so I can throw away and replace all of my work socks.
