@BULLITT BEE I just tried them on and found them a bit snug around my 17" calves. I personally would go with the shorter work boot version. I have pretty wide feet and wear size US11 in boots but liked the rest of the fit (which is usually not the case for me with 'one size only' socks).  :)
@Winchy finds them just right on his 15" calves!

Thanks for looking into this Axel!  I would go for the 20cm socks myself, but some instances I need something taller and wanted to get Iron Heart if possible.

Hm, decision time...

@BULLITT BEE Chup Socks in L are perfect for me, but not sure if that will be high enough for you..

Thanks for the tip Axel, but thinking I might give it a go with the IHG-29 socks.  Will know soon enough if I made the right choice  :-X

They'll either be on one side or both sides.  Paula and I can't remember.  If they are just on one side then you can choose whether the W points inwards or outwards, depending upon which leg you put each sock on....

Mine's got the W on both sides.

EDIT: I have the black socks, but would presume the W is the same for the grey version.

By the way Giles, are the socks supposed to be called "Engineering Socks" and not "EngineeSocks" in the thread title?

If you believe that socks are all more less the same, buy these: you'll be surprized!

I hate socks. I've always hated socks. They slide down my calf and it makes me crazy.

Except these socks.

Giles and Haraki deserve a humanitarian award for these socks.

Bought five or six pairs last year and have been beating on them senselessly.

Can't wait for a restock.
