Reviewed: Chaffree Knee High Long Socks

Chaffree, the underwear and hosiery brand that offers a range of seamless, sweat absorbing and chafe reducing garments for men and women, sent us several new items to trial and review.

This summer we reviewed the Chaffree Ankle Socks.

We have previously reviewed the Chaffree Men's Briefs and the Chaffree Men's Boxer Shorts.

We now focus on the Chaffree Knee High Long Socks.


The Chaffree Knee High Long Socks are packaged very simply. A card clasp is wrapped around the socks. A thin polythene sleeve then encloses everything.

The packaging provides very clear and detailed product information: product description, key features, sizing information and care instructions.

Materials and features

The Chaffree Knee High Long Socks are definitely a premium product, with every aspect and feature designed to provide comfort and functionality.

A key feature of all the styles of 
Chaffree socks is the use of COOLMAX® breathable fabric.COOLMAX® fabric has an inbuilt moisture management system that keeps you dry and cool when you perspire. COOLMAX® fabric moves and transports perspiration outside of the body where it quickly evaporates thus reducing the skin to irritation and other attributes that cause the skin to chafe, leaving you to get on with your life in comfort and confidence. COOLMAX® fabric also has anti-bacterial qualities.

The Chaffree Knee High Long Socks are made from 75% Polyester (COOLMAX®), 22% Polyamide and 3% Elastane ((Lycra®).

These socks have a whole series of unique features, all focused on keeping your feet and legs cool and comfortable.

The graphics above provide a visual overview of key features.

Comfort is enhanced by the terry soft cushioning throughout the whole foot of the sock, including the heel, toe, insole and around and above the ankle.

The toe seam is flat and completely smooth. Feet are anatomically shaped.

The leg has a light rib pattern, that begins above the ankle. This is elastic and is designed to provide moderate leg support, to aid circulation and prevent tiredness.

The top of the leg does not have a conventional cuff. The socks are designed in such a way that the ribbed pattern provides support throughout, so a cuff (top opening) isn't really necessary.

Sizing, fit and wearing experience
The Chaffree Knee High Long Socks are available in five sizes:

  • UK size 4-5 (EU 37-38; US 5-6)
  • UK size 6-7 (EU 39-41; US 7-8)
  • UK size 8-9 (EU 42-43; US 9-10) 
  • UK size 10-11 (EU 44-46; US 11-12)
  • UK size 12-13 (EU 47-49; US 13-14)
In each size a Standard or Wide Fit is available.

I wore these knee high socks in the UK 10-11 size with a Wide fitting.

They were very easy to put on. The sizing information was completely accurate. My shoe size is UK 10.5 and I have quite wide feet. The fit was absolutely perfect, not just on the foot but also the length along the calf and up to the knee.

They socks have a decent amount of stretch. This was helpful not for the length but for fitting snugly on the calf. I also found that once on they needed no adjusting or pulling up; they stayed in place all day.

The soft cushioning on the sole, heel and toe is very effective and really makes a difference if you are own your feet for long periods.

The ribbed pattern on the leg provided a moderate level of compression support. I could tell that they exerted some gentle pressure as when I took them off I could see the ribbed marking on my skin. But there was no discomfort; in fact the opposite as my legs felt good.

Sweat and moisture control is excellent, and this is due to the 
COOLMAX® breathable fibre that wicks away sweat.

Colour range

The Chaffree Knee High Long Socks are available are available in two colours:

  • Jet (Black)

I wore them pair in the Jet (Black) shade. As can be seen from the photo, the Jet colour is deep, dark Black.

We have reviewed several styles of knee highs, from different brands, at Hosiery For Men. The Chaffree Knee High Long Socks are without doubt the best we have ever worn.

On every level (quality, design, wearability and functionality), they are superb.

I doubt that anyone could improve on the comfort level they provide, and the fit is perfect.

The price, for the quality you get, is very reasonable as if looked after they will surely last a long time.

These knee high socks are another winner from
