MINIMUM CUSHION AND FIRM COMPRESSION. RESPONSIVE FEEL. Firm compression provides contoured support for running, cycling, triathlon and other endurance sports. ASPIRE has Swiftwick's widest selection of cuff heights and colors. Sitting above the ankle, the TWO quarter crew sock provides more coverage and support and bridges the gap perfectly when a low cut is too little, but a taller cuff is too much. Made in USA.
