    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.

    I have these:

    They have grippy nubs in the heel that keep them from slipping. I can't see them when I have my Sperry's on. They also come I several designs which is kind of pointless as you can't see them when your shoes are on and they still look dorky when you don't have shoes on.

    I have the BR ones and have had good luck with them. As Vicious mentioned, they aren't as low cut as some of them. They do hold up well for a long time, however. I've had mine for a couple summers now. I also just got some during the last sale at JC Penney made by Eddie Bauer. They were cheap (compared to the BR ones) and are pretty nice. They are cut nice and low so they are completely no-show. I can't speak to their durability, however.

    I've got the BR ones too and they are good (at 40% off). I also have some English Laundry tan colored ones from Nordstrom Rack that are even more no show and have worked fine.

    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

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

    Try these things out! They're washable shoe inserts that you can wear all week!

    Does anyone have any experience with a good pair of these for smaller feet? I'm typically a 7.5-8, so I often have issues with one-size-fits-all socks. I'd particularly like to know how the Journeys fit.
