Do the calf sleeves work the same as the closed or open toe knee highs.

If they have the same compression level, then yes, they work the same, but they are different items, so they may have different outcomes depending on the person using them and the reason they need the compression socks. I would say that open-toe items and calf sleeves are more similar to each other than closed-toe items.
