    Gave these socks a try cause people seem to rate them, and you can get a pack of three for the price of a single pair of thorlos! Tried them on and they come up really high on your leg though, almost like a football sock. Are they all like this or have I unwittingly bought some weirdly high ones?

    They look like this :

    yes, I also found these to be a bit long.
    I am not very tall (6'0) but these socks definitely touch my calf if I didnt roll it down in the way like delpo or nadal did with their socks

    That is why I buy them in the medium(6-8) instead of the usual large(8-12).

    Yeah they're stupid high, mine goes all the way up to my knees if I really stretch them.

    Yeah I'll just pull em down a bit

    Weird because nike could be saving money on material per sock by making them a normal length.

    You guys wear you crews stretched to full length? I always pull them down so they're just above my ankle since I'm not paid to advertise the swoosh like the pros. I prefer the look and it helps with the suntan.

    I do on normal length crews

    But if you pull them down why don't you just buy ankle length socks?
