    'Best' no-show socks?

    I don't recall seeing a thread about no-show socks, or rather, about the best no show socks so I thought I'd start one.

    What are your favorite no-show socks? I've used the generic ones from Journeys for a few years, but they're not very comfortable, slip quite a bit, and aren't always no-show depending on the pair of shoes. I did buy 2 pair from Uniqlo when I was in SF the other month and I love them. I'd say they're my favorite no-show socks because they're thin, comfortable, stay in place (silicon on heel), and truly are no-show. Unfortunately, they're no longer on Uniqlo's website, nor do I have any future trips to SF planned to pick up more.

    I have found these:

    wish there were better pictures of these

    the elastic on these remind me of the Journey's socks which I'm trying to get away from

    these appear most like the Uniqlo socks, but I do wish they offered white. And price-point wise, these are the most expensive by far

    not sure if women's 'one size fits most' would fit my 10.5 foot

    What's your experience? What are your favorite no-show socks?

    I just received these, but haven't had the opportunity to try them out yet: http://moccsocks.myshopify.com/. They get favorable reviews from Put This On, which is always all I need to hear. http://putthison.com/post/697761528/moccsockandco

    They have a nice price-point, especially so if you buy in larger quantities, particularly as some of them are on sale at the moment.

      You might want to check out Journeys. They carry these no show footies 5 pack for 9.99 in black or white. Perfect for those on a budget

        I second this. I haven't tried them yet, but I have some on the way. Worth a shot.

          I personally can't stand no-shows, but I love washable insoles. No-shows are good in theory, but they look ridiculous when you end up having to take your shoes off. Then again, bare feet are kind of gross, so I'm not sure what to do about that.

            I use Converse "Cut for Chucks." You can get a six-pack for not too much money and free shipping on Zappos. They might not be cut low enough for some loafers but they work well on more modern, high vamp style loafers.

              I use the ones from Journeys. Speaking of which, I'm at the mall now so I'm going to pop in and grab some more.

                I just purchased a two pack of these from my local Sperry store:

                Wow, that's a long link... Anyway, they worked out great under my Jack Purcells. The heel has the same sillicone grip that you mentioned, and they didn't slip at all throughout the course of the day.

                  I just changed this year to no-shows. I just have the ones from Journeys, which I can't imagine would fit any worse than another brand. $10 for 5 pairs = done.

                    JCF also has some. With the current 40% off they come out to $2.25 a pair. Can't speak to quality, but probably worth tacking onto your next order from there at that price. http://factory.jcrew.com/mens-clothi...lor_name=white

                      http://moccsocks.myshopify.com/. I'll third this and say I have some due for delivery tomorrow. I found out about them from putthison.com as well.

                        I get the 5 pack from journeys for 9.99. I get them a size smaller so they are snug and don't show with any of my shoes. Best value IMO

                          I'll have a look at moccsocks, thanks.

                          I'm not a fan of insoles because of the amount of space they take up in the shoes.

                          Unless Journey's has recently changed their no-show sock offering, they are completely garbage. Sadly, I've bought them each summer for the past 3 years. For starters, the elastic band around the sock always seems to dig into the top of my foot and ankle and leave marks. There are no silicon pads on the back to keep the heel from slipping. They're also not completely 'no show' especially when wearing loafers and sometimes boat shoes. For chucks and vans, yeah, but that's about it. But in the end, they're not very comfortable period.

                          Oddly enough, I went to H&M today to buy a cheap pair of linen pants and they had no-show socks 2 pair for $5.95. So I picked up 4 pair and we'll see how they work. They're thinner and cut lower (wider? more open?) than journey's socks (which again, I hate), and have silicon on the heel so they shouldn't slip. For the price, they're a no brainer.

                          If anyone is up in the Bay area and can stop into Uniqlo to see if they have any no show socks, I will gladly pay for a few pair along with shipping (plus a few bucks for your time if necessary).

                            I have some moccsocks I bought from Maxton Men and they didn't really work too well for me, they just slip off my heel all the time. I bought some from JCrew that worked better because they have one of those grip pads at the heel to help keep them on.

                              I have ones from BR and from JCrew factory. I like the JCF ones better because they are a bit more no-show than the BR ones.
