toes too big, January 29, 2015 By Anonymous
Had bought these in the past but they seem to have modified them and now the toes are way too big. For some people this might be great but didn't work for me and have to return them.

great support and so very soft and cozy,but not too warm. Can wear all day without my toes feeling crushed. Highly recommend these support socks!!
Allegro samba cotton socks, June 13, 2014 By Lgrn715 (Parma, OH)
This is the first time I've tried any compression socks and I was a bit reluctant but I love them!!! I am a RN in a very busy Cath Lab, and there are days were I'm on my feet for my 10 h shift with a lead apron on, taking a toll on my legs and feet. These socks are very easy to get on, are super soft, and really help allieviate the pain I was having. I would recommend these and would love another pair !!
Very nice sock but watch the compression, May 7, 2014 By maurice (healdsburg, CA)
This is a very nice sock:soft on the skin, comfortable in the toe and wears well judging from previous orders. I made the mistake of ordering too high a compression which makes getting them a wrestling job.

the only issues I am having is the 'bunching' at the top of the ankle. if only they could be made with a little ankle give?

So far, so good., April 15, 2014 By Paul (Easthampton, MA)
I have this item for a very short time(<3 months), I had initial problems getting them on, but have gotten the hang of it. Comfortable, and washing well, so far. I will purchase more in the future.

the socks were shipped quickly and fit well. I've washed them several times already and they seem to be holding up okay.
Caution: Size Chart May Not Be Accurate, March 17, 2014 By Brian Bacchi (Carrboro, NC)
I ordered a size 5 sock because I wear a size 13 (US) shoe. I needed this sock due to blood clots I had in my calf. This sized sock on my calf had very little compression, so I have to return them and get a smaller pair.
Allegro Samba Cotton Sock, February 27, 2014 By Anonymous (Denver, CO)
These socks have helped greatly. Keeps the swelling down.
Lucky find!!, February 14, 2014 By Peter Panayoti (Clifton, NJ)
I am a diabetic and recently my legs and ankles had become so swollen I had trouble putting on my shoes. I have a drawer full of "diabetic" socks that did not work. I saw an ad for Allegro socks and ordered one pair to try. I have since ordered 4 more pairs of Samba socks. The swelling in my toes, ankles and legs are down to normal wearing the socks. The aches and sensitivity from the swelling is greatly reduced. I am delighted....
Cotton support socks are best, February 4, 2014 By Anonymous (Atlanta)
They are just like regular comfortable socks but with support
Excellent Service and Product, January 21, 2014 By Sandy Adams (Edmond, OK)
Free shipping is so fast, I don't know why you would order any other way. The product is superb.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these socks!!!, January 21, 2014 By Rebecca (CO)
I have been having restless leg syndrome and spider veins. My legs have been tired and achy. My Doctor had me try these socks and they have made a world of difference. I am 5'1" and weight about 112lbs. The size 1 fits me perfectly. They are soft and non binding, they are easy to put on. Yet they fit securely and stay up well. The arch support is a terrific bonus. I highly recommend these great socks.

If you have to wear compression hose, then this is the way to go. The cotton makes them less sweaty and they feel so soft. You have to follow the washing suggestion (hand wash or gentle cycle) and line dry! If you do this they will last a long time.

samba cotton sock 20-25mmhg #113, December 18, 2013 By Anonymous (columbus, IN)
they were ok but short in length ,for people with longer leg

These are great for comfort and they absolutely stay in place. The Allegro Samba gives just the right amount of support and relief from pain.

These socks are comfortable, easy to care for and long lasting! Look good with pants.
Great Comfort!, November 11, 2013 By George Reading (Monterey, CA)
This Italian cotton compression sock is the haute couture of comfort and looks. It's the comfort that, I find, is often marginal in socks, especially the therapeutic compression socks. Not so with this Italian known, as it is in the fashion world, for fine cloth. It's the best leg hugger I've found.
good product but..., October 27, 2013 By joseph onorato (northfieod, VT)
I am an octogenarian who lives alone and found it very difficult to put them on. they are sized correctly and gets a little easier to do after some weeks of use.If your hands are not strong you'll need help. product does a great job otherwise.

I thought my old Allegro Swing 15-20 socks had lost the stretch after a few years(!), so I ordered the next compression up: 20-25, along with 15-20s. The new Swing socks now have nylon-reinforced heels, a long-awaited improvement. Kudos to the Italian firm. Both styles looked the same, but the extra-firm "lift" in the 20-25s is remarkable. Turns out, the new, improved good ol' 15-20s still meet my compression needs. THX

They are very comfortable and work so well for me that I have now purchased two pairs in each of the five colors.
