I don't find that they bind, the do hug the leg, shrink a bit after a few washes also so if you bought a size or two larger I don't think you will have a problem. Suggest you buy 2 pairs first and try them out and then decide if they will work for you

I have about 10 pairs of these. Excellent sock, winter or summer. Or, work great for "houseshoes" around the house. I am a size 10-11 and have found to like the S or M. These socks are so thick, they tend to pull to the back of the foot and the heel comes up out of the back of the shoe if too large. They are so "generous" that a small will fit securely with no issue.

Being from the midwest, I wouldn't consider these socks well suited for July. These are heavier style, probably better suited to cooler weather. That said, I wore them with temps in the 60s and it wasn't too bad. But July typically means 90s around here. I'd pass.
