My calves are pretty substantial. And pretty much pure muscle, although they’re the only thing on my body that is. I actually don’t hate them, as they’re a reasonable shape and pretty strong. But I can’t stand when I buy a pair of kneesocks or boots only to find that they don’t zip all the way or they cut off circulation. Sometimes I’ll buy thigh high socks because I figure at the very least, they’ll fit comfortably around my massive calves.
