Please help me find some socks that don't leave marks

I don't have thick calves or ankles, but most socks I buy seem to dig in and leave marks. I need some new socks and hope to find some -preferably on the High street- that don't.
Also I suffer from thread veins and I think some of them have been caused by too tight socks (or at least helped along). I hope someone will be able to help.

I got These socks recently and they don't seem to leave any marks I don't think.

I have just bought these and they are wonderful, no marks and very very soft and comfortable:

I heard somewhere, ages ago, say that it's about people's biological makeup, some people mark and osme don't... as I type this I think it sounds silly....

TKMaxx sell some called soft grip iirc that don't leave marks but do still stay up.

I turn mine over at the top, it seems to help stop the marks.

I despise tight socks too! The best ones I've got are from TK Maxx and have what I think they call a "honeycomb top", which is lovely and soft.

No idea about marks, but bambo socks do feel lovely, I have various ordinary ones and DD has bamboo walking socks she loves.

Thanks everyone, will try bamboo or TK Maxx.

Yes, I was going to say TKMaxx too. MIL bought me some lovely comfy-top socks from there.
