CONS

After a couple of washes, the silicone part on the heel loses its stickiness

OUR VERDICT

Thirty 48 no-show women's socks give you that rare but always welcome combination of style and functionality. They remain comfortable throughout the day, never slip or fall off, and look just a little bit better than most similar socks.

Thirty 48 WNS1BKBL-6PK

A Touch of Style

The no-show socks from Thirty 48 combine practicality and style better than any other model we've seen so far. First and foremost, the versatility that comes from their one-size fit makes these socks perfectly suitable for the absolute majority of women out there.

As far as the style is concerned, it is mostly the elastic cuff with a contrasting color. It keeps the socks comfortably snug as well as the next cuff but the color contrast adds a little flair, just enough to make the socks pop figuratively and not literally.

Loafer socks aren't known for their athletic performance but this product is a little different. Equipped with a particularly strong silicone grip on the heel, the socks never slip throughout the day even as you jog or run.

Having said that, the grip isn't as impressive on the durability front as it is when it comes to strength. After a couple of washes, it loses its stickiness, which is a bit of a shame. On the bright side, the combination of 4% nylon and 3% lycra in the socks' composition means they won't lose their form or stretch out and will remain their perfect fit later down the line.

To rephrase our earlier point, Thirty 48 no-show women's socks give you that rare but always welcome combination of style and functionality. They remain comfortable throughout the day, never slip or fall off, and look just a little bit better than most similar socks.

Sheec SoleHugger Active 1.0

They do Hug Your Soles

SHEEC SoleHugger Active 1.0 is an odd name for a pack of socks, wouldn't you say? But, frankly, it makes quite a bit of sense. The "Sheec" part is understandable - as far as socks go, these are about as chic as they come. The latter parts of the name probably refer to the strong non-slip multidirectional silicone grip that does a good job preventing these socks from slipping off. Plus, they're really thin and lightweight, so you'll be able to slip into any pair of shoes feeling nice and comfortable.

The cotton-polyester-spandex composition keeps these socks soft, snug, strong, and stretchable enough. Since cotton is the predominant material, the model excels at absorbing sweat, so your feet will remain comfortably dry throughout the day.

That being said, the predominantly cotton composition is also part of the reason these socks wear out relatively quickly, a slightly unfortunate trade-off but nothing that tragic. Not to mention that, with their low-cut (even by no-shows' standards) and smooth flat seams, these socks remain comfortable and invisible in all sneakers and casual shoes.

In other words, Sheec SoleHugger Active 1.0 are the best no-show socks for men who are in touch with their stylish side. These socks go well with practically any footwear available today. Plus, the smooth flat seams prevent chafing, making them a perfect match for any pair of new tight boots.

Eedor WS062016

Stock Up

This 8-pack of invisible socks from Eedor is probably the most affordable and practical choice on this list for women.

Well, mostly practical. Though you likely won't be able to ruin them on the first try, the people behind these socks highly recommend hand wash approach to the machine wash, which isn't that practical in our book. But, other than that, there's not a whole lot to complain about here.

Its 80% cotton and 20% spandex composition makes the socks comfortable, soft, and snug. The fact that there's no polyester in the mix means that the socks will not be absorbing outside odors. Add to that how breathable these two fabrics are and you have socks that will keep your feet nice and dry. Aside from wicking away moisture, these materials also make the model equally suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

Not dissimilar to the majority of its no-show associates, these socks come equipped with a silicone grip on the heel, so they stay in place and don't slip off. That, as well as the elastic cuff, makes these socks a real pleasure to deal with and comfortable to wear with any footwear.

To sum it all up, with this 8-pack of no-show socks from Eedor, you'll be able to stock up and get yourself a decent collection of affordable, comfortable, and mostly practical socks. The colors are neutral, so they'll be able to perfectly fit just about any pair of slip-ons, espadrilles, and loafers.

Pro Mountain No Show Socks

No-Shows are a Go for Athletes

Pro Mountain offers easily the most variety and one of the best no-shows on the market right now. First things first, they make socks that are equally suitable for men and women. For women, the sizes range from 5.5 to 9.5. Men will be able to choose between 8.5 and 12, so you'll likely be able to find the right fit. That said, the actual sizes often differ from the advertised ones, so keep that in mind when you go looking for the right pack.

It isn't just the variety either. The toe-and-ball cushion is what separates these socks from the majority of similar models. The cushion absorbs sweat from the toes, which is the feet area that generates the most sweat. It also keeps them protected as you jog or run. The socks are thin but not too thin, making them a decent choice for athletic applications.

Another interesting part of their construction is the triple stitching with a double y-heel. It makes the socks stronger and more durable than what people have come to expect out of socks like that. But, just like the rest of these socks, the model will sit tightly below the peach bones, keeping you comfortable and stylish at the same time.

Taking all of that into account, Pro Mountain offers the best no-show socks for people who live an active lifestyle and those who can't imagine their week without a couple of workout sessions and a nice jog or two. With these socks, you'll be able to perform, all while maintaining a confident a stylish look.

Mottee&Zconia MZSBT-d0110HE

Stand out but Stay Hidden

Though mostly invisible, these Mottee&Zconia liner socks can add some fun and a pop of color to any outfit. With their colorful palette, these men's socks will be a perfect match to a casual ensemble. That being said, these are no-show socks, so you can wear them with practically any pair of shoes, provided you're not planning on taking the shoes off anywhere but at home.

One thing that we really like about these socks is their mesh knitting top. As you'd imagine, it adds ventilation and keeps your feet fresh and dry. A design like that also prevents sweat buildup, so they aren't a bad choice for fitness either.

Just as important for fitness and everyday use is the rubber insert at the heel that doesn't chafe and prevents the socks from sliding. Equipped with 3 silicone grips, these socks will definitely stay in place and will unlikely ever slide under your feet.

However, we can't say the same about the elastic cuff. Though it does its job, the cuff loses its elasticity over time, so the socks may start requiring occasional adjustments after a few months. On the plus side, they're perfectly compatible with a washing machine, provided you stick with cold water.

All in all, Mottee&Zconia no-show socks couldn't be more versatile. The sizes range from 6 to 13, so the overwhelming majority of men will be able to find the right pair. They're great for sports and just as great for everyday use. The color scheme makes them stand out, while the low cut keeps them hidden.

What Are No-Show Socks?

Some people love this type of socks, some not so much. The thing is, you'll likely need a pair or two of these socks even if you aren't the biggest fan. See, your feet have a lot of sweat glands. With these socks, you'll be able to prevent excessive sweating as well as unpleasant odor buildup that can ruin your shoes as much as your confidence. Sure, there are other ways to achieve the latter but none of these methods are as simple and effective as slipping into a pair of no-show socks and continuing with the rest of your day.

Though they may seem like your regular socks, just without the part that covers the ankles, there's a little bit of a difference between the two. More often than not, no-shows have to be a little more stretchable and elastic than their traditional counterparts. The cuff has to be a touch more effective as well since it doesn't have the ankles and the shoes preventing it from sliding down. But, other than that, socks are socks, you can't really make that wrong of a choice, provided you've read the reviews. They're great for flats, you can wear them with dress shoes, sneakers, booties, boat shoes, Vans, etc.

While we're still on the subject of socks, the winter season is still upon us, so it isn't too late to acquire a pair of heated socks. Alternatively, you could try our review of work socks if your workplace is a far cry from a cozy office environment.
