Fit runs small

Was excited about this socks potentially keeping my feet a bit warmer in the stand this year but found them unable to fit. Wear a size 12 or 13 shoe depending on the brand so I ordered the sock in L/XL. Right out of the box I was barely able to get the socks over the arch of my foot, but figured they needed to be broken in a bit. Ran them through the wash and then put them on a pair of shoe trees to help stretch them out. After a couple days, I planned on wearing the socks around the house but they were still too small. Were able to get the socks over my foot but barely over my ankle. Had my brother-in-law try them on and he said they felt tight, even for compression socks (he is a size 10 shoe and wears compression socks frequently for running). This is the first product from First Lite I've been disappointed with.

Awesome Socks!

I am a Scuba Instructor in the PNW and used these socks with my drysuit. The water temps where we dive in the Puget Sound is around 48*F. These socks not only kept feet warm, they also stayed in place. Where as other socks that I have tried, fall down. I bought the S/M pair and I wear a size 8.5 mens shoe. And they fit perfectly! Thanks First Lite!!!

Compression socks

I love my compression first light socks. I even wear them to work.

Fit: 3
Product Size: S/M
Height: 5' 7"
Weight: 160lbs - 170lbs
Location: Oregon
Primary Use: Spot & Stalk
Fit Comments: Perfect.
The best socks on the market!

Taking into consideration that this is a technical purpose sock, the fit and feel are incredibly comfortable and high quality. This is a compression sock so as I read some reviews I have to remind myself and others that the reason it is tighter fitting, is because the purpose it serves during hiking. That being said, these socks are designed perfectly. They build things to work at First Lite, and here's a leading example. The core of your hunt lies in the base layers between you and your gear. These fill the void that use to hold me back in the past.
