Rated 5 out of 5 Great Gift
This was a gift for my wife. She needed them for her 1st half marathon. The day wound up being warm so she didn't wear them during the race, but put them on straight after to aid in recovery. Her calves are feeling great 3 days after the half marathon.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Runner Bottom opening too narrow.
I run high school cross country and track, and I ordered these to get some relief from calf pain. My calves are 14 1/2 inches, and I ordered a medium. I couldn't even get my foot (U.S. men's shoe size 9) through the bottom hem opening. These will be sent back, and I'll order a different brand.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Rod Size Matters
Technically this is a fantastic product. The look and feel are great. The branding won't last long but that doesn't impact the function. The only problem is with the sizing. DO NOT BUY without trying this precise product on your leg. I had the older model in small so naturally I just ordered the same size. I have a 14" calf and although the old product sizing chart would recommend medium the small fit best and the compression was good. You DO NOT want oversized compression products. Unfortunately the lower cuff on this model is smaller or perhaps tighter than the previous model. It is very difficult to stretch over the ankle/heel and stitches can be heard snapping immediately. Not a good sign.
The sizes are as listed and I don't believe it covers the potential size ranges effectively. If you are at the top end of a listed range you might be OK without trying. On the low end you will be trading copression for size.
Good product when it fits
