I had ordered these sock two years ago and even though they were a bit snug in the leg, the foot fit my size 6 foot perfectly. These present socks seem to have been relaxed in sizing, so they probably fit the average foot better, but they are looser on me. I can still use them, but don't love them quite as much. However, I like them enough to keep 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.

    Comments about Cable Knit Knee Socks by National®:

    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 have no idea, of course, how durable these are since I've only been wearing them for a couple of weeks. But they feel good, I love having them in different colors and I'm already wearing them ALL the time EVERYwhere, including church.

                  Not a bad sock, but like previous comments the fit on the calf is way to tight.

                          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.

                            I use to wear this style of sock in blue with my uniform in high school. They are perfect to wear in the cold weather over my pantyhose to keep my legs warm and to add slight bulk when wear boots and casual shoes.

                            I had ordered these sock two years ago and even though they were a bit snug in the leg, the foot fit my size 6 foot perfectly. These present socks seem to have been relaxed in sizing, so they probably fit the average foot better, but they are looser on me. I can still use them, but don't love them quite as much. However, I like them enough to keep them!

                                Although these socks didn't work out for me because the tops were just too tight, my neighbor and her two girls loved them. They were pretty socks and well made.
