No-show socks are, without a doubt, a weird item to shop for. They're the one piece of clothing that you really don't want anyone to ever see. Even underwear begs to be shown these days, hence the visible lingerie trend popping up everywhere. Socks definitely aren't as sexy. But if a visible sock kind of kills your summer vibe, don't opt for bare feet either! With temperatures starting to warm up, no-show socks, a.k.a. "invisible socks" or "hidden liner" socks, are the only way to preserve your sneakers, loafers and maybe even a ballet flat from suffering from funky feet syndrome. There is a time and a place for bare feet in shoes, but for everything else, let no-show socks do you a solid and keep your feet feeling comfortable and your footwear in great shape. We've rounded up our favorites to keep your feet feeling fresh without compromising your look.
