I ordered these in both the black and green for wear during our winter, outdoor training sessions. Someone had reviewed the other Nike cushioned crew and said they ran very small, so I ordered a size up and hoped for the best. The foot part of the sock is very nicely cushioned and was just a little big but the calf and upper cuff were too small. I have other brands of compression socks (including the R Gear Go stronger, Longer socks) that have good compression without cutting of circulation at the top. They're going back.
This is a solid long distance sock. Really comfortable and held up for me in a marathon with terrible cold and wet conditions. Don't think there should be any sizing issues if you read the sizing chart. This is not a true compression sock, nor is it intended to be, but just fits snugly enough to stay up and provide some warmth and coverage to about mid shin. I'd say the length and thickness are ideal for cooler weather running- would probably be too hot for summer.
I'm buying more of these right away!
I tried this sock for running after using a heavily cushioned type for many years. It felt thin when I put it on but it was every bit as cushiony. It also eliminated heel action which had always been a problem for me. I like to scrunch my crew socks down around my ankle and this sock is tight-fitting above the ankle and doesn't scrunch so well. But no big deal. I love it.
