They stay up, despite the long airport walks and are as close to an antiembolism stocking as you can get. The toe and upper band fit like‡ too.

I have used these for a few years, and like them, as I have had vein surgery. There is a roll on glue for stockings and it works real well. Magellans would do well to also carry that, as I didn't know of it till the surgery. I too would like a little lighter color selection.

I like the fact that these socks have a heel and are not just a tube, but would prefer a lighter, "nude" shade. I haven't had them long enough to know whether they wear well or not.

When my doctor suggested daily wear of support hose to help my feet feel better, I sure felt old...I found these knee highs in a sheer color, and tried a couple of pairs. I am hooked! They make my feet feel so much better at the end of a day at work. They have light support, and they are good looking, not too dark a shade (fawn). I even wear them with sandals, but they are not sheer toes - THAT would be a nice improvement. Otherwise, these are great, and I have ordered more pairs to get me through my work week.

Love these hose! They are full-fashioned with a heel and a toe knit into the foot, instead of being tube-shaped. The extra room in the toe area and the foot-shape keep them from creeping up the leg and scrunching my toes. I take 2 or 3 pair on each overseas trip, wash them at night, and wear them every day. A nice way to prevent DVT and swelling.

The stockings feel good, but the color is much too dark tan. I was hoping for a more natural nude or taupe color. pt

I wish I could give these socks a positive review -- they felt fairly comfortable after I put them on for the first time. However, the tops kept falling down while wearing them, and while tugging them up they ripped -- substantially -- in two places. I'd expect that from cheap nylons, but I'd hope better from a sock of this cost, especially when they've been worn for barely four hours.

These socks offer very good suport with a cuff band that is comfortable and not too tight.

This stocking work very well. They kept my legs from swelling below the knee. I need thigh high to work on my whole leg. My legs did swell above the knee. The stockings did not slip down. The elastic is tight enough to hold up the stocking, but not to tight, so there not uncomfortable. If you want a comfortable knee high, this is the one to get.

Seem to work as well as the Futura brand.

Although I have not used these socks yet, I have used similar socks for a trip to England and my legs felt great after the flight and my ankles were not swollen. I'll be testing these socks on a trip to Hawaii soon.

These knee highs stayed up! I found them relatively easy to put on. They were comfortable and provided the much needed support I wanted. Plus, they fit - no constriction or slippage.

For years I have bought cheap knee highs to wear with slacks. One day I was actually shopping for gifts when I saw the support knee highs and decided to get myself a pair. I love them! They are really comfortable and don't get holes in them after one or two washings so they may not really be as expensive as I thought when you consider the number of times you can wear them. Let me repeat for emphasis - I love them!

I really love the fitting - I had ordered from Magellan's before and was just making sure I have extras in case my support knee highs get messed up. The only thing I wished for is the other color I'm wearing now, it's a little lighter than the one that arrived. If I'm not mistaken the older ones is BEIGE. The new ones I got is a little darker than I prefer. But you have only two colors to choose from: Black and the one I got.

I ordered these on my doctor's suggestion for an extended overseas' plane ride. They were difficult to put on; however, they work and really made a difference in how my legs felt and did not swell. I have used them several times and will use them again in the future for long plane rides.

These stockings make the 14 plus hour plane ride to New Zeeland easier to take.

My feet tend to swell, especially on long flights. These stockings help minimize the swelling, so I can put my shoes back on without a struggle. Yet they are lightweight. I highly recommend them.

I travel extensively & my feet & ankles tend to swell on my long flights. i have worn these socks for several years & highly recommend them to others.

Wore these on a 3 hr flight to test them out. They were comfortable to wear; a little difficult to put on but okay once you got them in place. Not sure how much help they were as afr as swelling is concerned; but my legs did feel good on the flight.

Several years ago I bought these hose to use just when flying in order to prevent DVT. However, they were so extremely comfortable that I have not worn any other type of hose ever since that trip. When I came home, I ordered more of these wonderful hose and threw away all of my other types.

I bought these socks for my mom and myself for a flight to Europe. We were really surprised that they actually worked. Our legs usually swell up on those long flights, but the socks kept the swelling down about 95%. They also don't feel very tight when on and are very comfortable.

These knee highs are just what I was looking for!

It was very comfortable to wear; smooth and silky and very energizing. Just a bit difficult to put on. I found it much easier to put on while lying on my bed with my feet up. The product works for me because I have narrow feet, but I could see improving this item with more spandex.

I borrowed a pair to wear on the airplane from a friend and she told me where to get them. I ordered3 pairs before I left for Germany and am glad to have now my own stash of them. It made all the difference to have these on during my flight. Get them, wear them, you'll be so much more comfortable. I did a lot of walking in Munich too and wore tem then. A great thong to have tosupport your legs.

I have tried several types of support stockings and ended up throwing them out. They either wouldn't stay up, or they cut into the backs of my legs. Someone recommended these to me and they are perfect. They have the perfect amount of compression, they don't fall down and they don't cut into my legs.

I have not worn this item yet. It is a sheer but sturdy, dressy-looking hose, of good quality. They would look well with a dressy or casual pair of shoes. I also ordered the support trouser socks and chose to wear them first to go with the athletic shoes I was wearing.

If your job is standing on your feet, especially a concete floor, these support knee highs are the best! At the end of the day, your legs feel normal, no fatigue, no aches and pains.

These are thin but do a nice job of preventing swelling on an airplane.

These were a bit tight, I ended up using the trouser socks instead.

This product performed as advertised. I wore them when I had a long day of walking.

These socks saved the day for my traveling companion, who has diabetes. She wore them on the plane trip, a 21 hour trip each way, and they made all the difference. She will likely order more for use more frequently than traveling.

My husband and I won't travel without these socks. Excellent quality and good-looking.

Nice looking but much too tight for women with large calves. This is really too bad since large calves are a significant factor in poor circulation. At first they seemed okay but in then end they actually inhibited my circulation.
