When it comes to socks, nothing is more aggravating than constantly having to pull up and adjust slipping, sagging socks. This problem is even worse with no show socks, as they slide off your heel and bunch up under your foot.
One of the many reasons we started Boardroom Socks was to produce men’s socks that would actually stay up all day. Over the last decade, we have learned quite a bit about how to design and manufacture quality socks, paying close attention to comfort and functionality.
As customers began to ask about no-show socks for warmer weather, we quickly learned that they were having a difficult time finding quality no-show socks that stay on. We got to work designing and prototyping a no show sock that, like our dress socks, would stay up all day. After over a year of development, we are excited to bring these no-slip no show socks to market.
The most important step in ensuring your no show socks don’t slip is to buy the right pair of no show socks. The market is inundated with no-shows, but how do you know which ones will stay on and which ones won’t? When shopping for no show socks that stay on, there are three key features that you want to look for:
The most common part of a no-show sock to slip off is the heel. Your heel naturally rises and falls as you walk, causing the inner heel of the shoe to pull at your socks. If your no show socks keep slipping, odds are they are missing this key feature.
This small silicone grip ensures the socks stay adhered to your heel. On a quality pair of no shows, this tab will be thin enough that you won’t feel it and will still be quite comfortable. For optimal performance, only wear no show socks with a silicone heel grip.
A continuous elastic welt is a great feature to ensure your no-show socks stay on.
Stretchy yarns help keep no-show socks comfortably on your feet.
When purchasing no-show socks, pay very close attention to size charts and size guides. If the socks are too large, odds are that they will end up slipping off your heel.
When wearing loafers, this issue can be particularly pronounced as slip-on shoes lack laces to ensure a snug fit. If you find that your shoes are a little loose, try using a tongue pad to improve the fit.
When searching for the best no-slip no show socks, the two most important questions to ask are:
It took our team over a year to design and manufacture a loafer sock that not only meets but exceeds these standards. In fact, the production of Boardroom Socks’ no-show socks is so intricate that it takes a knitting machine nearly as long to produce a pair of no-shows as it does to produce a pair of our over the calf dress socks. While we may be a little biased, we are confident our no-show socks will exceed your expectations. Each pair is made locally in North Carolina and backed with free U.S. shipping and free returns.
