best no show socks for men

COURTESY OF RETAILER

IF YOU’RE into cuffed pants and a sockless look, wearing dress shoes sans a good pair of socks for men is a masochist move. You’re pretty much sending a royal invitation to blisters and germs—plus, expect blood and sweat stains on your good shoes, and tears on your face as you try your hardest to strut. Those are saying of the nasty odor that’ll practically knock you out every time you slip them off your feet. Yikes!

And that’s where the best no-show socks for men come in to save the day.

No-show socks—also referred to as loafer liners or invisible socks—are low-cut socks that can help provide a barrier of protection between your delicate feet and your favorite shoes on the down low. Whether you need a thin knit pair for tuxedo shoes, compression socks to sport during hardcore workouts, or moisture-wicking socks to go with your 24/7 walking shoes, there’s a no-show, low-cut option to consider.

And here, we’ve rounded up the 24 best no-show socks for men that won’t slip, stink, or fall apart after one wash. And thanks to smart design tweaks (and in some cases, adhesives in the back), you’ll never have to stop and tug a sock back over your heel.
