For the last couple of years, sneakers have become my obsession. I wear them almost every day with jeans, skirts, dresses, shorts…everything. I love how they pair perfectly with my momiform, but also add an unexpected casual element to my more feminine looks.

I’ve never worn socks with my sneakers, but it’s the most asked question whenever I wear them. I’ve always disliked the look of socks showing inside your shoes, and it was comfortable enough to wear them without, but after so many questions I decided to see if there was a good option out there. And it turns out that there is.

I ordered a bunch of pairs and tried them out with several different pairs of my sneakers, and these ones by PEDS were the clear winner. These are a few of my favorite things about them:

  • They’re made of a lightweight microfiber so they’re breathable and won’t get hot inside your shoes like pantyhose, but they’re thick enough to provide comfort.
  • They have a gel tab on the back to keep them from slipping down.
  • They come in a bunch of colors, but most importantly in a nude color so they’re basically invisible.
  • They’re actually low cut enough to not be seen.
  • They come up high enough on the top of my foot to not move around.
  • They’re sturdy enough to stay put during the day.
  • They’re affordable at $13 for a 6 pack with free 2-day shipping.

So ditch the little white footie socks and grab a pack of these cause they’re the best way to wear socks without looking like you’re wearing socks!

    Do they slide around? I’ve only used a pair of no-show socks once, for exercise–different brand, and it bugged me that it wasn’t staying still when I moved.

      No, not at all. But I wouldn’t recommend these socks for working out…I use Bombas Socks for exercising. When you’re actually going to the gym, a good, sturdy pair of socks is definitely necessary!

    I love no show socks! I have them from thick to thin and also for flats.

    Do you now prefer these socks to wearing no socks? I’ve always been a no socks gal too, but this makes me wonder if there’s a good reason to wear them. Thanks!

      honestly I don’t even notice when I’m wearing these. It feels like I’m wearing no socks, so I’ve been wearing them all the time. Plus they keep my shoes cleaner and from getting smelly.

    My feet sweat so much without socks on, and I could never get socks to work right, so I actually stopped wearing sneakers a couple years ago because of this! I totally want to try these socks, and hope it reopens the sneaker world for me!
