Do Yourself a Favor and Wear Invisible Socks

Let’s face it—as cool as your most stylish pair of socks may be, they don’t work for every occasion. Furthermore, some shoes and outfits are just not styled for socks of any kind.

Is the answer to go without socks in these situations?

NO—after all, socks serve an important purpose.

As you may know, socks help prevent blisters and calluses. They also keep feet warm and ungroomed feet hidden.

But perhaps the number one reason not to wear shoes without socks is foot odor. Going sockless is a sure way to guarantee that you’ll never be able to wear your shoes out in public again. Yes, your shoes will become a breeding ground for bacteria and smell bad.

It wasn’t too long ago when the only way to get a sockless appearance was, well—to go sockless. However, times have changed.

Now you can wear socks to protect your feet (and nose) while maintaining a no-sock appearance.

They’re called invisible socks, boat socks, or liner socks. The sock sits lower than an ankle sock and only covers the parts of the foot that are covered by your shoes, even if you’re wearing loafers, slip-on sneakers, or boat shoes.

Ever wonder how they stay on? Most invisible socks feature non-slip silicone at the back of the heel to prevent them from slipping off. They now even come in an array of stylish patterns and colors, just in case you were wondering.
