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.

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.

Love these socks. I can wear them all day and my feet are comfortable. I never have to pull them up. I would buy them again
Samba Cotton Socks, July 25, 2013 By Anonymous (Cornelius, OR)
Love the comfort of these socks. Two of my daughters suggested I try them since they like them so well. Bought multiple pairs for 2 more daughters & myself. Especially appreciate the manufacturer considers the foot length in sizing. No more scrunched up toes half way thru the day.

I have bought Allegro synthetic compression socks for years and was quite satisfied. I never tried the cotton socks because I did not believe cotton would stay up over the course of a day. When a friend recently purchased the Samba Cotton Socks I decided to try them too. What a surprise! I love the softness of the cotton and these socks stay in place as well as the synthetic socks do. True the cotton socks are a bit more expensive but Allegro products last a long time if you take proper care of them. The extra money is worth the added comfort.Give a pair of Samba Cotton Socks a try. You will likely fall in love with them too.

Love these socks. Give me the most relief and look the best since they are about two inches below my knee while my other allegro socks often stretch into my knee and slightly double back.

I worry a bit about the sizing on this style -- whether the compression is right in all the right places! -- but they are very comfortable and affordable.
