I've had knee socks where the heal goes up to my ankle. These are a perfect fit for my size 5 feet. The top edge is slightly flared, just loose enough so they don't make a red mark on my calf. Other brands seem to be made of flocked fibers which rub off forming balls, then the remaining weave breaks through in only a few months. Gold Toes are great and do not do this. They have worn very well. My only complaint is that they accumulate lint so look pilled after a while, but I wear mine under pants so this is okay.

Just received my order of Portland Knee Highs and I am very pleased. I ordered the grey color to go with grey and washed-out jeans and they are perfect. These socks are not as bulky as the cable-pattern ones and should be fine with dressier pants as well. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of five is that I am not sure how they will wear. Time will tell, but for now, I recommend these.
