I am 56 years old and have been wearing these all my life, the only socks I like to wear. My Grandma started me on these. After she passed away in 1994 I didn't know where she got them. For two years I tried other socks, I did not like any of them. Somehow a National catalog made it's way to me. Eureka! There were my socks! I have been ordering them ever since. Absolutely love them!

I was thrilled when I saw that National is now offering cable knee socks in "wide calf" since the "one size fits 9-11" has always been too narrow/short to have ever fit my mostly regular size legs. Alas, when I received the package, though it was marked "wide calf", the socks inside were the same too narrow, slightly short style I remember from long ago. Maybe the package was mislabeled. Regardless, although the colors were lovely I am so disappointed I don't want to even try a replacement and will send them back.

            This is the second time I have ordered these socks. I love them; they lasted me for several years. I love the variety in the colors; I wear a different color with matching slacks. They are very comfortable.

              I was happy to find knee-highs with a wide calf, but the calf was not wide enough for my legs. Maybe you should carry an extra-wide calf? These slide down my legs after a few hours, maybe because I can't get them all the way up? Other than that, they are soft & comfy.

                    I have purchased these socks repeatedly over the years - and I just love them! They don't go all the way up to the knee for me (I'm 5'10"), but they are very comfortable and they keep their shape after many years and many washings, and they STAY UP! I recommend them, and I hope they will always be available.

                      Having read comments about a tight top band, I chose the large calf option, and the fit is comfortable but snug enough to stay up. Happy to find the foot is long enough for my size 10. Some cable knee-highs are thick and heavy, but these are more like trouser socks, fine for daily wear indoors.

                                I liked the style and comfort. Not just the plain nylon hosiery type. Good color selection, too.

                                    Iwear knee highs all winter long and I like the cable ones the best.I also look for all cotton if possible. The ones i bought from you are ok , but I wish they were more like the older ones by that I mean heavier.

                                    Of course they wear out - eventually. I darn them once or even twice, and when they wear through again or in another spot, then I throw them away.
