The extra height takes care of the gap between sock and pant when sitting down. The Merino wool is comfortable, keeps feet dry and washes well. Highly recommend!
I thought I had ordered crew socks. But the Calf socks work maybe better.
The socks are merino wool which are out-of -the gate high quality for me. I selected Boardroom because 1) I needed a dress that was high quality, but thin (since it was wool) and light; 2) Boardroom was the only company that I could find a brown light weight wool high quality sock.
We were so in Hope's these would be the perfect socks. However, one thing that keeps them from being perfect is they do not stay up on the leg. Pull them up, they slide down. Must say a little disappointed on that.
Smartwool, meet Boardroom. So nice to buy products made in the U.S.A. The service was prompt, and personal. Very nice.
