    I have these as well...I hate them. I think I'm going to try the Journey's $10 for 5 route.

      Just picked up two pairs of Vince Camuto no-shows at Marshall's for four dollars. They've got non-slip heels, and are much nicer than the thin nylon pairs sold by Clark's.

        I hate the Journeys for this reason. I wear a size 10/10.5, and these socks start slipping off almost immediately. They are pretty much unuseable in my case. Wish I hadn't ordered a bunch of them.

          The Journeys' ones shrunk down so bad after a wash that I pretty much gave them to my wife and my 9 y.o. son to wear. However they were very nice prior to that, when they actually fit me.

          The best that I have, which have still retained their original size (for the most part) are the Converse "For Chucks" ones, or whatever they're called. Snagged several pair on clearance at TJMaxx/Marshalls a year or so ago. The ones I have are a tad too colorful, if you have to remove your shoes for any reason, but they are pretty much no-show otherwise.

          I really only have worn them in Chucks, Purcells, and some Sperry tennis-shoe/loafer hybrids, IIRC. I typically just go sockless (Gold Bond powder is your friend) the majority of time in these situations; especially in dressier loafers, suede bucks, driving loafers or in boat-shoes.

                I got 3 pair of Sperrys socks at DSW and so far they have been holding up very good, non slip heal and material make it better choice over the Journeys brand that I got couple of months ago.

                  I've bought Ninja Sox, the Journeys, UO, but the ones that I keep going back to are the ones I got at Nordstrom. http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/pact-no-...=keywordsearch

                    bought those minimalist bamboo no show socks. Don't slip, keep feet cool and best of all you don't feel the socks.

                      No complaints from me regarding the ones from BR.

                        I've gone through a few types, but recently my favorites have been the sperry no-show socks. They're thin and have the grippy back to stop them from sliding off if your feet get a bit sweaty. I get them from DSW, and, with their frequent coupons, they cost me a couple bucks per pack.

                          I feel the BR's still show some on the rare moments i wear them with my double monks. However with my jack purcells and vans they're great

                            I've been using and liking the Sperry ones as well.

                              I have no complaints about the Vans version, but I don't generally wear loafers or boat shoes.

                              They're invisible with bucks, oxfords, and, of course, Vans slip-ons, sambas, etc.

                                I buy socks for yachting crews, and the biggest complaint about no-show socks is slippage. The best brand (and value) so far has been Stomper Joe. They have an extra large silicon grip, and they are really well priced.
