24 of the Best No-Show Socks That Won’t Slip Off Your Heels
By Mekita Rivas, Brook Shunatona and Tarah-Lynn Saint-Elien
Though they may be small, nothing can change the entire dynamic of a ~lewk~ quite like a pair of socks. Wear the wrong ones, and suddenly your perfectly-styled ‘fit can become, well, not so perfect. Clashing colors, distracting patterns, and a vibe that’s a little too casual are all potential hazards (sry not sry for the dramatics) that come with everyday sock wearing.
The problem, however, is that going sock-free isn’t always an option. Blisters, sores, and foot sweat (yes, we said foot sweat) are all things that can happen whether we like it or not, so socks are essential for keeping those feet happy, healthy, and—especially during the fall and winter—warm and toasty. Thank goodness no-show socks and liners exist, providing the cushion and support you need without being a potential outfit-ruiner. Of course, not all no-show socks are created equal. What’s more annoying than a sock that simply won’t stay on and keeps coming off your heel? Nothing. Literally nothing.
That’s why we did some digging to find the best no-show socks for women that do it all: protect your toes and heels without being so, um, visible—all while actually staying in place, so you don’t have to keep bending down to adjust ‘em throughout the day. So to make your shopping super simple, check out the 24 best pairs below that go with anything—from your running shoes to your ballet flats.
BEST LOW-CUT NO-SHOW SOCKS
Bamboo No-Show Socks
These super low-cut socks are another solid option if you regularly wear ballet flats. They’re made mostly out of a viscose material that’s sourced from bamboo, as well as organic cotton, so they can be helpful in minimizing skin irritation. Reviewers swear that they never fall off your feet and some say you even forget that you’re wearing ’em!
