    I bought these Wrangler socks as well as the Gold Toe Ultra Tec over-the-calf socks. I had been wearing Wilson over-the-calf, but the elastic is so strong in those that it can be uncomfortable for me at times. Guess I'm getting soft. Anyway, have been a Wrangler fan for over half a century, so likely had higher expectations than what should have been. Still, I've had the chance to compare these Wranglers to two other brands; all of them brand new, never worn.

    I laid the three brands next to each other (see photo). First measurement is starting from bottom-center of heel and going to top hem. Wilson - 15.25" Wrangler - 14.0" Gold Toe - 17.25" Next I measured bottom-center of heel to tip of toe: Wilson - 9.5" Wrangler - 7.5" Gold Toe - 9.25". When I took the Wranglers out of packaging, at first I thought they had sent a smaller size. Come to find out the Wrangler socks have a very stretchy footbed that I was able to stretch 2 inches while wearing. Within seconds, they withdrew most of that and, a minute later they were again tight on my toes. So it would seem these socks are designed to 'hug' your toes. While that is probably fine for most folks, I'm deformed. An old ankle injury and nerve damage will not allow too much pressure in certain areas.

    The Wrangler socks (out of these three) were also the shortest. Did they stay up? Well, yes and no. They'll be fine if you wear lace-up boots. They won't be too bad for shoes. That said, if you have need to wear any slip-on boots (rubber boots, cowboy boots, etc.), these are not the socks for you! They even work their way down just walking around the house without shoes on.

    What about the uppers? Out of these three, the Wranglers have the weakest elastic; likely why they will not stay up all day. That said, if you have an aversion to tight elastic, then these socks might be just what you need. The Wilson socks stay up as though they are glued to your skin (they are VERY tight!). The Gold Toe also stay up, but then again they reach all the way past the bend of my knee! For me, these Wranglers are not over-the-calf. Even looking in the photos on Amazon, it appears these socks go up to the largest part of the calf and stop, whereas the others go above and hold tight.

    What about comfort? If you like soft, cushy things, these socks are good. They are comfortable. I have no idea how well they will hold up. These are about the same thickness as Wilson, but the Wilson seem to be built for "extreme" sports; built like a tank. As for the Gold Toe, they are easily the thinnest -- unusual (in my opinion) for socks that go so high up the leg.

    Noting my disappointment, my wife has said that maybe they would work for her. She might just be right.

    I have always liked the fit of Wrangler jeans and, when they first came out with Rustler I liked them also. Then Rustler changed and no longer fit the same, so back to Wranglers. I fear that Wrangler, like many other brands/products/industries are changing, and not in a good way. It seems the old quality just doesn't mean as much; that lower price matters most. So it is with great sadness that I give these Wrangler socks only 3 stars.

    First the actual foot part of these socks is GREAT but.. the whole purpose of them is for use with western boots and its why Wrangler charges more for them etc.. they have NO ELASTIC in the upper section.. none it looks like they would but they don't, and I didn't stretch em out or anything they actually fit pretty good for about 30 minutes when brand new but even washing will not bring the uppers back to shape requires a rubber band around the calf to keep em up!!

    will not be purchasing any Wrangler socks in the future "Sportsmans Guide" has an in house brand "guide gear" that is much much better quality than these are...

    These socks are ok. They are relatively think and they are comfortable. My problem is that they fall down... all day. I wear boots every day and need a sock that is going to stay on my calf. I don't want my boot rubbing against my skin. These sock don't perform well in that regard.

    My husband had me get these when his normal crew socks kept falling down inside his cowboy boots. The tops of his legs were rubbing against the top of the boot on the inside and it was getting really uncomfortable. It also caused him to sweat more in his boots when his would be directly against the leather.

    In the past he has used Dickies and Hanes. Those would stay up, but were not tall enough to go all the way to the top of his taller Ariat boots.

    These socks were exactly what we needed, and after ordering the first batch and liking them so much he had me get another set right away. These are going to continue to be a frequent purchase for us.

    Ok sock with a lace up boot or shoes, but they fall down all day, and do not go over the calf. After an hour, each pair started falling down into my pull on and cowboy boots and then the boot starts wearing against my leg, super annoying. By the second day I was zio tying the sock to the loop on my boots so they wouldn't fall down. Still doing that, the socks are thick and durable but I wish they would stay up. I have 4 pairs of Cabela's over the calf socks from 10 years ago and the elastic in those is still going strong, not sure why Wrangler couldn't get these to stay tight.

    2/25/20 Once laundered, the other pairs drooped during the day. I almost felt bad donating these socks to charity. I strongly recommend you avoid these socks.

    Socks looked good in the package but upon opening, 2 of 8 had bad elastic. When bundling in pairs, the 2 socks lost their shape. Concerned about the other 6 after laundering.

    These socks are thick and comfortable. The only down side is that they make my boots feel super tight now!

    Update: I've had these socks for about three months and am completely disappointed in the quality of these socks. They are thick and comfortable, but have stretched out to the point where they won't stay pulled up. I'm constantly having to pull them up because they've slid down and bunch up around my toes or in my heel.

    They are comfortable but the tops are not as thick as the ones they are replacing. These are used for yard work so I needed them to be thickly woven in the top area - they are thicker than the tube socks I have so will suffice hence the 4 star rating. no rating for durability since I have only had them a month.

    I was for long socks that go above the calf’s,I read the reviews and some one said that they were 6’+ tall and it fit above the calf. Am 6’2” and they don’t go above the calf. They are about 6” below. So if you looking for above the calf socks DON’T buy these.
