Knee-High Socks And Higher!!
These socks generally land somewhere in the vicinity of your knee i.e. above your calf but below your thigh. Sure, Over-the-Calf socks also exist, but that's because a lot of guys don't like 'knee-high' socks but for some reason they're fine with 'over-the-calf'.
Well... at least the socks aren't fragile!
