That is not uncommon for products that are styled like this one, however, if you need a decent level of support this is not going to be the best item for you.

Value

This item from Meister is a decent value. The price tag associated with them is outrageously affordable. You should be able to pick up several pairs if you find that they are what you are looking for without a problem. Your budget will not be taking a major strike with this item. The reason we say the value of it is only decent is due to the fact that these are not a super supportive option. They don't offer any adjustability and the sizing runs a bit large. This means they are not going to accommodate as many users. There are a ton of other brands available that offer more sizing options and a better fit. Overall, this will be a good option for a lot of people and they are quite durable. It really just depends on the shape and size of your calves and feet.
