The Do's and Don'ts of No Show Socks

The Do's and Don'ts of No Show Socks



The sock of the month, socks subscriptions have become all the rage in recent years. Because getting new socks every month or two doesn’t just keep you looking fresh, it also gives you an excuse to pamper yourself and buy some fun designs that wouldn’t fit into your usual rotation. Here are some do’s and don’ts when it comes to buying no show socks from sock of the month clubs and other subscription services that can help you make the most of your new monthly socks.



The Benefits of Wearing No Show Socks

There are many benefits to wearing no show socks, especially when it comes to dressing up. For example, there are a number of occasions where no-show socks can be worn. Sports team members often wear them with their uniforms because they don’t want to ruin their shoes during play time. They also help keep you warm as well. Finally, no-show socks aren’t just for athletes or sports enthusiasts; you can wear them anytime that you want to feel your best or look professional at work or in a social setting!



How to Choose the Right Pair

Choosing no show socks can be a bit tricky. It is crucial to select a pair that will not show when you wear your shoes, while also being comfortable enough to be worn everyday. Look for socks made out of cotton or wool, as they are more breathable than synthetic fibers, meaning your feet won’t feel sticky or warm during warmer weather. These fabrics also tend to have a thicker weave, preventing them from being see-through on light colored shoes. No matter what fabric you choose for your socks, make sure there is enough stretch so that it contours to your foot; otherwise you might end up with wrinkled toes or an irritating seam right under where you ball your foot up when walking.



How to Wear No Shows

When you first put on no show socks, they can feel strange. They won’t cover your entire foot (this is good) but they still need to stay in place. In other words, there are few opportunities for adjustment during your day, which means putting them on correctly is imperative. Here’s how to do it



Quality Over Quantity

You may have noticed a lot of no show socks are very colourful. But although they’re a great option for any wardrobe, it is important to remember that these will be exposed to moisture in all kinds of different situations and conditions. And, whilst they may look durable, we all know what happens when cotton is wet...



How Long Should They Last?

This is a question that’s plagued sock-wearers since time immemorial. Some people say they should last a year, while others swear by every three months. As you can probably imagine, I think both camps are full of BS. If you’re buying good socks, they will last longer than one year or three months. And yet, socks in both categories do exist – cheap ones fall apart quickly (for obvious reasons), while higher quality socks will hold up for quite some time.



What Are Some Alternatives?

This is a simple tip for making your socks a little less flashy. If you really need some color, why not wear red or black instead? The darker colors will stand out just as much (if not more) than those bright neon ones without drawing as much attention to your feet. As another option, try wearing slip-on shoes with high socks rather than sneakers; because slip-ons don’t fit tightly around your feet, you can go for a thin pair without having to worry about breaking them in. Just make sure that you don’t tuck them into your pants; leaving them untucked allows you to pull up the cuff when necessary.
