Philosockphy's sock of the month Club - The Do's and Don'ts of No Show Socks

If you own men’s or women’s dress shoes, chances are you need No Show socks to go with them. If you choose the wrong style of No Show socks, however, your new shoes won’t feel as comfortable as they could have and you may even be embarrassed by how they look! Follow our tips on how to select the right no show socks so that your feet don’t feel uncomfortable, your shoes look great, and you can feel confident in both your footwear and yourself.

Rule: Never Wear Them With Dress Shoes

No show socks are a functional alternative to dress socks. While they may be worn with sneakers or other athletic shoes, it is never advised to wear them with dress shoes. This can cause friction on your feet, which will lead to blisters. When wearing no show socks with dress shoes, make sure that you have an extra layer of cushioning between your foot and the shoe. They should also not be worn with sandals as this will expose your entire foot to whatever floor surface you walk on.

Rule: Choose the Right Type of No Show Sock

No show socks come in a variety of styles, colors, and patterns. Choosing the right kind for you depends on your needs. If you are looking for something to wear with dress pants, try a more conservative sock that matches your pants such as white or black ankle socks. If you work in an office environment and want more vibrant colors, fun patterns or lengths that go above your shoe but not so high as to be seen while sitting down then colorful crew socks are perfect.

No show socks also have different levels of thickness depending on what's comfortable for you.

Rule: Stay Away from Solid Colors

Men, listen up! If you want to stay away from boring socks all year round, don’t settle for solid colors. Instead, find a sock club that will deliver you a new pair every month so you can get your foot style on point.

#1 Find a sock subscription that actually sends socks in pairs. If it doesn’t come as one pair in each package, then it’s not worth it because all those extra pairs are just going to go unused. Your sock game won’t be anything special if you can only wear one at a time!

#2 Make sure the sock subscription comes with different types of socks rather than just ankle socks or crew socks.

Rule: Match Your Sneakers with Your Outfit

First and foremost, find out what type of shoe you're wearing, whether it be casual or dressy. If you have a dress shoe that has a more formal look to it, then we recommend staying away from fun colors like pink or blue. If you are wearing a more casual shoe like an old pair of sneakers, then go for whatever color socks suit your personality! One rule to follow when matching your sneakers with your outfit is never wear white socks with black shoes unless you're going for a very specific look.
