Ordered a pair of socks from Greg on Saturday...It was shipped within the hour...I received them today (Monday). Very Impressed with the level of customer service! I have no opinion on the benefit of the socks since this is my first pair of compression socks and I've had them on for 10 minutes. I will say this, Greg you need to take a new pic of the socks showing that they are black, grey and white... no blue in the sock at all. If I had know this I would have ordered them when you first posted. The blue really turned me off but I finally came around and gave them a shot. VERY HAPPY that they are black and grey....now hopefully they will add 100# to my DL and 12" to my box jump!
