I was so tired of those thin no show socks that slip down 10 minutes after putting them on. I've tried Gap, Old Navy, Champion, even expensive ones from REI. They all slip off my size 7 narrow foot. I received some slip on leather Vans for Christmas and I vowed to find some decent socks. These are perfect. I bought the small grey and they are thicker than the no show socks I have bought elsewhere (but not so thick as to make your shoes too tight). They have the little slicone sticky on the heel and come down fairly low. I wore them out all day with my Vans (chasing around a 4 year old) and they did not slip once. Perfection! They don't show in my size 7 Vans at all which was also important. It's ridiculous that I'm so happy over socks. Im going to order another set so I can never be without them lol. Attached is a photo just to show that they are truly no show with the shoes. If you are reading reviews to try to find the perfect no show socks (like I was) give these a try.
This might sound weird, but I always have a set of socks that I call my "workhorse socks." The last set was a cheap pack of hanes I found at Wal-Mart. These are their replacements and these are much better. They are a cotton/poly blend and they have just enough padding which makes them useful for various activities. I wear them in my casual shoes(DC's I also bought on amazon), athletic shoes (Merrell; Bare Access 4s, Vapor Glove 2s and Trail Glove 2s). The socks don't show in any of them and they don't move at all. The silicone grippers that rest just on top of the heels of my 11.5 inch feet (I purchased Large) are very effective at holding the socks firmly in place. I even wear them by themselves around the house and I've run into no problems at all. They are also excellent at controlling foot odor. My feet sweat a great deal whether I'm exercising or just hanging out and foot odor is a problem I constantly battle with. These have done extremely well in that "scents" as well (pun intended). This was an excellent purchase in my opinion and I'll be returning for more colors.
Straight to the point: Great fit / high percentage of cotton / reasonably priced / super fast shipping
More details: I had a couple pairs of white no-show socks that needed to be replaced. Well that's easy, just go to a local retail store and buy some. Nope! Been to several and the ones I found were high poly/synthetic content (yuck...make my feet sweat), super expensive (Good grief....they're just socks!) and in neon colors (I wanted white). Sooo....decided to check out Amazon and after doing some comparisons, decided on these and I'm glad I did. I wear a women's shoe size US 5.5 so that's what I ordered (Described as S US Women Shoes 5.5~7.5, 9) and they fit perfect. No bunching or excess coming out of my shoes. They have plenty of stretch if you wear a larger size. There's a rubber strip at the inside top of the heel that prevents slippage and they are about 99% no-show with my shoes on (see pics). If your shoe size is bigger, there's a good chance you won't see them at all. I personally don't mind a little showing. I'm very pleased with the socks and would buy them again. NOTE: I have not washed/dried them so I can't speak to shrinkage or how well they hold up after several wears. I'll update my review if find them lacking in durability.
7/11/19 UPDATE (Pics included): I've had these socks for several months now and wanted to provide additional feedback on longevity/durability. They've been machine washed and dried quite a few times and show very little pilling or wear. They did shrink a little after machine drying but when put back on, stretched to a comfortable fit. I will definitely buy these again when time to do so. Very pleased with this purchase.
I bought these in a Medium (US women’s 7.5-9.5) since I wear a pretty solid 8. I was disappointed to find that when I put my Jack Purcell tennis shoes on, there was quite a bit of overhang from the socks on the back of my shoe. I took the shoe off to rearrange the sock to lessen the bunching in the back. What I was thrilled with, however, was that they really don’t slip.
I ordered the Small sized sock the next day and they fit perfectly. No bunching, no pulling from the smaller size. Couldn’t be happier with them. My neighbor is a size 10 so I gave her all the larger socks. They fit her perfectly as well. Highly recommend.
I've forever been in search of the perfect no-show socks for everyday wear and was inspired by an Ad I saw for Bombas to search on Amazon. They're either too thin, fit weirdly, or constantly slip. These socks are the right amount of thickness to be comfortable without any slippage at all, but still not thick enough for working out (for my taste anyway). Somehow the combo of the design and sticky pad on the back really helps with the slippage problem. Plus it's a way better deal than Bombas. To address some of the comments made from other reviewers - If you don't over pull them on, they don't bunch at the heel. I wore them all day and no fraying of material around toes at all. For reference, my shoe size is Women's 6 and I got a size Small.
These fit really well and for the most part are "no show" - they showed a little bit around my ankles but I think it's because I wear a size 6 and these socks fit size 5.5-7.0. My guess is if you wear bigger than a size 6, they would not show as much as if you had smaller feet due to the fact that the fabric would stretch more. My major complaint with these socks is the durability. After the first wear, the threads along the seams were fraying and the socks look awful. Maybe I just got a bum pair but I have socks that I've bought over a year ago that look better than this sock.
edit: I reached out to the seller and they sent me another set. they have held up great. great customer service and would recommend.
I needed these socks to fit my Vans (shoes) without showing. They don’t show, which is perfect. The thing that I’m really impressed with is the thickness. The thickness is like a normal sock (rather than the thin flimsy ones) and the socks stay on my feet without ever sliding down. I’m ordering more right now and figured I should leave a review. The sock was a tad on the bigger side (I’m a size 9), it doesn’t bother me at all, but maybe that will help choosing your size.
These are the best low ankle socks I’ve ever tried and I’m pretty stoked on them.
I was pleasantly surprised by these socks. I got some no shows on accident and decided I wanted some more. I couldn't find the exact ones I got before so I settled on these. When I pulled them out of the (vacuum sealed!) package they seemed more ankle sock size, especially since I have small feet(size 6). I put one on to test and was really impressed. They come up to just under my ankle bone and go across the top. The bottom, toe and here are nicely padded, but they might get hot in the summer or working out. There is a sticky line at the top of the ankle to keep them in place and they haven't slipped on me. I can't say how well they hold up to the test of time, but I hope they do.
Best athletic socks I have ever owned. I have always bought sports brand like Nike, Addidas, etc. but these are the first and only socks that actually do not show!! I have small feet and like the no sock look...these are perfect! They have a tiny silicone elastic strip along the top so they stay on the heel and don't slip down into your tennis shoe. I'm very active, all kinds of sports and exercise and have never had to stop to adjust them.
I am a women's size 9.5 and I purchased the women’s 7.5-9.5 and I love them. I bought my first 8 packs and loved everything about them-except the price. When my girls started stealing them I found myself needing more socks. I bought one more 8-pack and in a stingy experiment decided to try to find a comparable product with a better price. After all said and done, I may have gotten more socks for the price, but all but these were terrible socks. I thoroughly wasted money when I should have just gone with what I knew to be good. My feet are snuggly in these socks. They stay on all day in regular tennis shoes, they don’t show in my no tie converse (lower than normal chucks) and stay on when I take my shoes off at home. I think they are perfect because they aren’t super low like the kind that barely cover your toes. For reference, they would show if I wore them with my Sketchers GoWalk shoes. But they are perfect for what I needed them for (no-tie converse) and I find myself looking for these first in my sock basket-even if my shoes don’t require them to be so low. That’s not something I would ever say about the super-low kind. These are cushy and padded just enough to make me feel like I have “normal” socks on. I’ve never been able to forget that I have the low socks on with any other brand after the first wash. These don’t shrivel up or disappear after I wash and dry them like most of my other no-show/super low socks. I have washed -and dried- these multiple times and they still fit great!! They have snagged a bit (I may have worn them outside to get the mail though, so it’s probably my fault) but that hasn’t affected anything but appearance (no holes). All in all, the price is turns out to be a better deal when I compare it to the one-time use I have been getting out of the other, “less-expensive” brands I have tried. Literally after I wash and dry every other low-cut sock they shrink and never stay on my foot for more than a few minutes. Or they disappear (in the washer/dryer?). I haven’t had these slip off at all. My only problem is that my kids make them disappear because they like them too, so here I am buying more. My girls, by the way, have size 7.5 feet, and they like them as much as I do, so I know the size range is accurate. I know this will sound slightly dramatic, but after wearing terrible socks for so long, having socks that fit comfortably really does make a day better. So much that I decided to write a review...about socks. Haha!
