No Show Socks

The best no show socks are barely visible and keep your feet comfortable all day long. Available in ankle, hidden, and invisible heights (with your shoes are on), these top-rated, thin Merino Wool socks are the perfect hot weather companion.

We knit these high-quality, low-cut socks in three heights to cover a range of footwear. Our ankle no show socks sit just below the ankle bone and won’t show much above a casual sneaker. In our hiking and running sock categories, this height features a heel tab for extra protection against blisters. We also knit cushioned no show socks for additional comfort, durability, and rebound.

Hidden socks feature a lower profile to keep them invisible under loafers, clogs, and other low-top shoes. Lowest of the low are our invisible socks, perfect for disappearing under dress shoes, flats, and boat shoes. Both the hidden and invisible heights have a silicone-free strip on the inner heel, for no show socks that don’t slip.

No show socks are best worn with low cut shoes such as loafers, flats, slip on sneakers, boat shoes, or any footwear where you want to achieve that no sock look.
