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.

The Samba socks feel very nice on the leg; none of the feeling of being wrapped in shrink wrap. Most wear well but I have worn out the heels on some.

Allegro stockings are great! This particular pair maybe a bit heavy for summer weather but still a really good functional pair for someone like me standing up at work the whole day.

I wear these hose to control severe swelling and relatively intense pain in one of my legs after sextuple bypass surgery in which most of the veins in that leg were removed. I have found them to be the ideal solution to that problem at an unbelievable price. Their comfort level makes it possible for me to wear one on the offending leg near 24 hours daily with no discomfort. I highly recommend them to people I know. Also this vendor is one that I recommend without reservations to all my friends and relatives.

The sock fits well. The compression feels great. However the ribbing pattern indents my legs. I think a no patterned sock would be better for me.

I liked the look and feel of the socks at first. They are well made. My problem was with the size machine and the manufactures size chart. I used the size machine to get the right size since I have a large and short calf. I also checked the allegro size chart. This sock was on my list of the right size and allegro only goes by the shoe size. They did not fit me so I had to return them for a different type. If they were a different size I would have kept them because they looked and felt like a good quality for the money. just too tight.

I've been wearing Jobst 20-30mmHg which gathered behind my knee as I have rather short legs. I read the reviews on Samba and some complained that the socks were too short so I thought I'd give them a try.It's like they are custom fit for my legs and come just below the knee but not behind the knee. They are extremely comfortable and much easier to put on and take off the the Jobst. I suffer from venous insufficiency and lymphedema and this sox effective addresses both problems.

I bought these socks for my husband as he has diabetes and his feet are always swollen as are his ankles but he complains they are too tight for him. I will wear them then as they will be fine for me.They seem very soft.He had some socks I bought some time ago from you that were all cotton he has had for sometime and he really likes to wear them the most.I don't see the all cotton ones anymore. they also were Allegro in the brand.SincerelyWilma Tarro

The Allegro Samba cotton socks are great. Very nice weight and great support. The sizing was a little off for me so exchanged for one size smaller. Brightlife Direct is great to deal with. I wouldn't even consider getting my support socks anywhere else.

I love these socks! My shoe size is 9-91/2 I'm 5'6" and weigh 130 lbs. According to the chart size Small might have fit but I went with the Medium and they're a great fit (probably with some room to spare which I prefer). As someone else mentioned the charcoal is very dark. The navy and brown are nice dark neutral shades of those colors that should blend easily with different shades of brown and navy. I bought 4 of these - one of each color except black - because of the sale so they were an especially good value and service at brightlifedirect is terrific.
