Sigvarus 505C Natural Rubber Knee High 50-60 mmHg, February 20, 2014 By Anonymous (Portland, OR)
Great fit on the leg. Feels secure and supportive. Rubber makes it easy to get on and off with gloves. It has the typical Sigvarus pinching of lateral foot/5th toe area after a while - later in the day for me. But the pinching can be negated and skin protected with a strip of moleskin, like hikers use. Been using Sigvarus support stockings for over 40 years. Tried several other brands over the years but believe these are the "gold standard".
