The Bunga heel/achilles protector footless sock is an overall good product. On bare feet, it feels a little thin and loose, but over a pair of tights or socks, it does not slip around. The gel pad is also thin, which can be good if your boots/shoes are tight. But if your shoes/boots are too large (and that is the reason that you are buying them), these will be too thin to help you much.
I got these because my skates are a little big in the heel area so my heels were sliding a little. These stopped the sliding and they feel very comfortable. They do stretch out a lot so they dont maintain their shape like the ankle sleeve bunga pads but since my skates are so snug they stay in place.
The small/medium size seems to work for any female skater with an adult boot size of 9 or below (unlike everything else in this sport, where full-grown adults typically wear the largest size by default!). I'm not sure about male boot sizes. I ordered two of these, because I wear them on both feet, and one was about an inch shorter than the other. The difference in fit feels a little funny, but they stretch out pretty quickly (that's how my old pair got retired) and I suspect I won't be able to tell the difference between the two in about a month.
