sock of the month Subscriptions: The Do's and Don'ts of No Show Socks

You’ve probably seen sock of the month subscriptions advertised all over the place lately and wondered, What could be so great about socks? The truth is, there are many benefits to sock subscriptions and they’re not just as simple as receiving new socks every month! Here are some things you should know before signing up and the do’s and don’ts of sock of the month subscriptions that will ensure you get your money’s worth out of your subscription!

What are no show socks?

If you’re a bit confused about what these so-called no show socks are, don’t worry. Not many people had heard of them before they began to take over our sock drawers and supply us with luxurious cedar wood boxes that only contain no show socks. Let me shed some light on why they’re so popular. Essentially, they are dress socks that don’t show above your shoe—because they have a low cut, which isn’t as visible when wearing boots or shoes that have a high top or heal (as opposed to sneakers).

Why would you want them?

There’s a lot to be said for consistency. With sock subscriptions, you’ll never have to question what socks to wear ever again. Most subscriptions include between three and five pairs per month. These specialty socks will keep your feet protected in different weather conditions, from hot summer days to winter blizzards. They can also show off your personality through design! For example, if you love Netflix or knitting (or both), there are several sock subscription services that feature inspired designs based on streaming TV shows and hobbies. If comfort is your thing, then no show socks might be right up your alley. Many models provide extra cushioning in high-impact areas—the same parts that need a little extra love when it comes to foot health!

What are some no show sock subscription companies?

Zappos carries a line of no show socks by Merrell, Aeropostale offers a popular pair called Mally, Dick’s Sporting Goods also has a nice selection. You can also find no show socks at many local stores – Foot Locker and Finish Line sell some good options as well. But if you need to stock up on a few pairs, or are looking for premium socks, then it’s best to check out sock-of-the-month clubs like Philosockphy or No More Ads. These services will send you 3 different (though sometimes similar) pairs every month in return for a modest fee.

How can you use them?

A sock subscription like Philosockphy is a great way to ensure that you're never caught wearing no-show socks (except when you want to be). Not only are they fashionable, but they're functional, too. Get one in every color imaginable. And get a pair for every day of the week. There’s nothing worse than not having an extra pair just when you need it most!

Are they worth it?

If you’re new to sock subscriptions, or if you’ve ever thought about giving them a try, there are a few things you should know before joining. For one thing, they can be addictive. Once they take hold of your life, it may be hard to free yourself from their clutches (see what we did there?). For another thing, they can get expensive. How much is too much? There’s no easy answer—but your best bet is to decide in advance how often you want to receive socks and keep that in mind when you start browsing for subscriptions. Remember that more isn’t always better!
