I wear a 9 1/2M women's shoe. On rare occasion, I go up to a 10. It's very difficult to find women's socks in that "extended" size. When I buy women's Sock Size 9-11, they are for shoe/feet sizes smaller than mine. The heels of the socks don't reach my heels, and they're often short in length up the ankle. I like to wear ankle socks when it's cold out, inside some boots, or if they have a cute subtle pattern sometimes. K-Mart used to be the only place I could find "extended" size ankle socks in solid colors that matched my pants and had a wide comfortable band at the ankle. The store closed here.
The same holds true for trouser socks. I usually purchase the "extended" size in Legacy Trouser (not compression) socks because they blend with my work pants or jeans and have a comfortable band beneath the knee. (I've tossed several that got holes after only 1-2 wearings.)
But really, a 9 1/2 women's shoe is not an "extended" size anymore. And what is the "extended" label? Most of my millennial child's female friends wear a larger shoe size than I do. Women's shoes are offered in Size 12+. I recently wanted No-Show socks for my sneakers and ended up buying Calvin Klein Men's size 7-12 no-show socks. Really.
*I want a sock that fits in foot length, ankle/leg length, & around.
*I want a sock that does not have a skinny band at the top that acts like a rubber band and leaves a red mark.
*I want a comfortable band on all of my socks. And, I want them to stay up.
*And I want style.
It seems like the shoe industry has stepped it up and recognized women's feet don't stop at size 8; it's past the time for sock manufacturers to step it up, too.

I gave up & buy men's socks... Gold Toe quarter athletic are my favorite.
I have many pairs - lengths and colors - of Gold Toe socks. They're so soft and comfortable - and last many years. They have a website goldtoe dot com - and they're always having sales.

I wear same shoe size (91/2N) but don't have problem you describe with socks. I usually buy Gold Toe women's socks.
I wear size 9-1/2N or 10N -- also usually wear Gold Toe -- and have never had a problem either
