Rogue Compression Socks is rated
Rated 5 out of
I needed a GREAT sock that had compression and good wicking. I have shin splints and every workout I come out drenched in sweat. These have good overall compression (though I dont recommend them specifically for shin splints) and kept my feet pretty dry though I think its impossible to be 100% dry because I sweat SO FREAKIN MUCH. Overall I am very happy with them and I think for anyone looking for a good "dry and compressing" sock then these are them. They do stop just shy of the top of my gastrocnemius look at the pics they clearly dont go all the way over. Im sporting size large and have 16" gastrocnemius.

Rogue Compression Sock overall fit
Somehow...I thought these were full calf covering. May be my mistake...probably is. The socks feel awesome... Love that compression feel. I have chronic calf pull issues when I do certain excersises so I wanted a full calf covering sock for the compression as well as protection when I do box jumps and clean/jerk presses. HOWEVER...these socks only cover half of my calf. I pulled and pulled...can't get them up any further. Maybe I have larger than normal calves? The foot part fits perfectly and as said...these feel great. Considered returning and getting the XL...to get the full calf covered, but then the foot part would be oversized. Guess you can't win them all.

"Socks Run Short and Low on Calf."
Socks are too short. I received these socks as a gift and I have a 9.5 shoe size. The sizing chart states I am a medium but like other compression socks made by 2XU or McDavid, these socks are shorter which cause them to slide down back down your calves. I am 5' 9" and have normal size calves approximately 15" in diameter. It is very annoying to have to pull up these socks after every set of exercise. I end up taking them off during my W.O.D instead of dealing with them. I tested them out few times. The quality of workmanship and sock material is great. I just wish the length was longer as MOST compression socks. More testing should have been done on the during the research and development phase. Most X-Fitters are pretty muscular in the calves and I bet most would have the same problem. Great for skinny folks though. Good Luck. Seems like some of the other reviews prior to mine have the same issue. So if you have muscular calves. Order a larger size. Although that might defeat the purpose of having a compression sock. Now you might have the problem of less compression on the sock.

Twice the price of other compression socks, and they don't fit well
These socks are very expensive for what they are, glorified socks. They don't come up to your knee, slide down during use, and are very difficult to get on. And forget returning them if you accidentally toss the label it came with. I am extremely unhappy with my pair and don't recommend these to anyone.
