Best No Show Socks for Men (Top 10 Features to Look For)
#9: Mesh Air Vent
Problem: Hot, sweaty, and stinky. With no ventilation, your socks become a sweat lodge for your feet! While very uncomfortable, improper ventilation can also leave a permanent odor in your socks, in your shoes, and can even lead to athletes foot.
Solution: While Skyba socks are thick on the bottom, the top features a mesh air vent that promotes breathability and moisture control. No more embarrassment of taking your stinky shoes off in public places, the discomfort of sweaty feet, or the risk of fungus between your toes.
#8: Thick Sole Padding
Problem: What happens after you wear a pair of no-show socks to the gym 5x a week or wear your low cut socks to work and walk around all day? Eventually, the bottom of your socks start to wear down and that’s when the holes appear! Not to mention, these thin socks provide absolutely no cushion for your achy feet!
Solution: The thick heel-to-toe padding makes these comfy socks last twice as long as any cheap department store brand while offering ultra comfortable padding that reduces foot fatigue! That means that you’ll spend less money buying new socks and less time shopping to replace your old socks.
#7: Smooth Edges
Problem: You’ll find many slip-on shoe brands with extra padding around the heel. Take Vans shoes for example. The back of their shoe is squishy to provide extra support and comfort. But if you try and wear your Vans with thick-edged socks, the two edges will look bulky and feel tight.
Solution: Skyba No Show Socks are created with an extra smooth edge that gently hugs your feet. You can slip on any pair of shoes – padded or not- and the invisible sock won’t interfere with the fit or irritate your ankles.
#6: 80% Combed Cotton
Problem: Feel your feet. Yes, actually feel them! The skin on the top of your feet is very thin. This part of your foot is the most sensitive area, prone to itchy reactions from low-quality material, especially when worn all day long.
Solution: Skyba socks are made with 200-thread count combed cotton; a blend of cotton that has literally been combed to remove impurities while making the cotton extra soft. This kind of cotton is also higher quality with stronger, thinner, and more durable threads for long-lasting wear.
#5: Low Cut Design
Problem: When you’re wearing shoes with a low-cut design, like loafers or certain styles of Toms, it’s almost impossible to find a no show sock that totally disappears into the shoe.Often, this is the biggest shoe/sock compromise of them all.
Solution: The super low-cut of Skyba socks rest at the top of your arch, rather than at your ankle. Still very comfortable with a non-slip grip, this feature allows your Skyba sock to be completely invisible when you’re wearing Converse, Toms, Vans, or Loafers.
#4: Flat Toe Seam
Problem: You know that little rubber lip at the toe of Converse shoes? You can feel it when you wiggle your toes or walk up stairs. If you are a Converse shoe lover, then you know that annoying feeling when the toe seam of your sock rubs against the seam on your converse shoe with every step.
Solution: Skyba socks have created a completely flat toe seam that will make you forget that you’re wearing socks all together. No more rubbing or chafing in your Converse shoes, boots, or boat shoes.
#3: No-Slip Silicone Grip
Problem: Ask anyone: What is the most annoying feature of no-show socks? It’s that they slip and scrunch down into your shoe! When this happens, you expose your bare skin to the shoe’s rough-edged material…and what do you get? Blisters!
Solution: We’ve perfected the non-slip silicone grip! The smooth silicone edge stays in place all day, so there is no more sliding, tugging, or readjusting. Slip your shoes on and off without having to worry about your socks coming with them.
#2: Deep Heel Pocket
Problem: Most no-show socks out there use a 2-point heel stitch. In other words: a really shallow heel that is basically useless! Less is not more when it comes to subtle socks. No-show socks are in such a hurry to hide themselves, that they skimp on material which ends up compromising the fit for appearance. Without much material covering your heel, your socks are bound to slip off your feet throughout the day.
Solution: The # 1 no-show sock secret: Skyba’s 5-point heel stitch that guarantees that your foot stays put! The sock is snug – but not too snug- so that you can experience full range of motion via running, walking, or climbing stairs without your heel wiggling out of your sock.

#1: Slip-Free Satisfaction Guaranteed
Problem: Let’s say you spend $12 on a pack of socks that claim to be “no slide” and “non slip” only to wear them to play tennis or soccer while they slide down your feet the entire match. And now that you’ve worn them…you can’t take them back.
Solution: Skyba’s No-Slide 1-Year Money-Back Guarantee! The Skyba Brand prides themselves on being personal. While we run a pretty impressive operation, we aren’t some out-of-touch multi-national brand with call centers in obscure countries. We are an American company that loves to hear from our customers. Any problem, any time- let us know and we’ll fix it.
You wouldn’t buy crappy shoes, so why would you buy crappy socks to go with them? That’s like buying a lake-side mansion and filling it with inflatable furniture. It’s impractical and won’t last long.
Do your feet a favor with socks that reduce fatigue and blisters, and your shoes a service with socks that will keep them from getting stinky. All the while, maintaining that totally invisible, stylish look that you’re going for.
Oh, and the best part of all? Skyba socks cost around the same price as most name-brand socks…while lasting twice as long and feeling twice as comfortable.Sunny weather and slip-on shoe season is right around the corner. Get your order in for a 3-pack of Skyba socks and let this summer prove to you that these are the best no show socks of 2018.
I teach barre these are great do not restrict turns etc help with balance. Recommended to class.
Nice little mesh bag to keep them in my bag neat and tidy
I’m a size 8 UK and the large size fits perfectly
These are really high quality 'invisible' socks. Wearing these with trainers or shoes gives the appearance that you're not wearing any socks, but with the comfort and hygiene that you are.
These are among the most comfortable socks I have ever worn. The bottom is made from a thicker material than the top. This gives a breathable sock that doesn't get sweaty, yet is incredibly comfortable to wear. There's also a tiny bit of silicone on the back of the heel that you can't feel when wearing them, but it simply stops the sock moving around.
Both me and my teenage daughter have worn these socks and we both love them.
They were also shipped with a mesh wash bag. This helps to keep one person's socks together for the entire washing and drying process, so pairing socks after washing them is much easier.
Perfect for a use such as Pilates / Yoga at home; you feel really confident that you won't slip backwards (or forwards). The amount of grip is ideal, and not only that - these are comfortable and sensibly warm, with a nice bit of support from the cushioned bottom. This is a high quality product, should have bought them sooner.
I purchased these socks to wear in barre classes at my gym. Socks are extremely comfortable and have great grip! They seem very durable too! I would consider them high quality. The seller was very kind in notifying me of a possible mixup in my order delivery. I was grateful for the heads up and the seller made everything right in the end. Not only did I receive a product of excellent quality but the customer service is above and beyond. I highly recommend!
Extremely durable and I no longer have to worry about slipping on the hardwood floors.
SKYBA No Show Sock design eliminates the one-foot-hop to reposition sliding socks.
No Show Socks have returned to my wardrobe, thank you!
Very happy with socks I have purchased from skyba socks before and they last a long time and retain their shape..I will order from them again.
I love these socks! I’ve had three pairs for awhile now. I wanted to have some experience wearing and washing them prior to my review.
I’m happy to say they got 5 stars out of the box for soft touch, innovative design and —spoiler alert! — “surprise gift” packaging. And they still get 5 stars. Why? Because they do what they say they are going to do! They’re soft, seamless, don’t slip down the heel, don’t rub and seem to be standing up under quite a bit of use, wash and reuse.
I think I’ve probably washed them 6-8 times since I’ve had them. Can’t tell the difference. Importantly, the silicone-ish tab on the back of the heel — that keeps them from slipping — is still the same consistency as when they were new.
I use them for walking - not great distances, but regularly. Aside from previously having frequent difficulty with “no show” socks slipping down into my shoe, I have “problem feet”. I’ll spare you the full list of 6-7 “issues” I have with my feet, let me mention one of the more problematic ones. I’ll skip the Latin name and just say that I get blisters very easily anywhere there is excessive friction on my feet. And I mean anywhere, heel, top of toes, bottom of toes, between toes, under calluses, under toenails. It is obviously important to me to have soft, seamless non-irritating socks.
But you don’t have to have all those annoying problems with your feet. Get them and I’m sure you’ll enjoy the pleasure of wearing comfortable socks. Forgot to mention that I shopped around a bit and have tried other “special” socks — in stores and on-line. Most of them were crazy expensive — one and a half times the cost of these or more —and substantially less comfy and effective.
After a few yoga and pilates lessons I can honestly say, these socks are amazing! They are a perfect fit, the PVC grips feel very strong and have not come off after a few washes. And look at the packaging! Amazing! The washing bag is such a great gift and so handy! Highly recommended!
I have to say they are my favorite socks I've purchased in years. I have a size 14 foot and they fit great. They don't slip.
My toddler Grandsons love them. They are keeping their feet warm and the treads on the bottom are perfect on our hardwood floors.
These are so cute and great for a little girl to run around the house on hard wood floors without slipping!
These are the BEST socks for little people on hardwood and tile floors!! Highly recommend them. I purchased them for a very active 4 & 2 y.o. who love to run and chase all through the house and were constantly slipping and sliding on the floors. These socks have solved that problem. They can now run around like crazy and are no longer slipping, sliding and falling! I purchased the Toddler size socks and they run true to size. They fit both kids who's shoe sizes are 9 and 10. I will definitely be purchasing more of these socks as their feet grow.
Great and comfortable all day no show socks. Wear them with my Cole Haan ZeroGrand Oxfords. Love them! Had small hole in one pair, and Skyba was great sending new pair no charge.
These socks are gifts for my husband, my son and my son-in-law for Christmas. They haven't worn them yet, but the packaging was amazing. Three pairs of socks came in a washing bag inside a plastic Skyba bag. Presentation was excellent.
Already repurchased these, great fit
I wear size 10 shoe. The socks fit perfectly. They are not to tight, not to loose, and are very comfortable. They do not slip down at all and the material is very soft. I think the uniqness of the heal pocket construction combined with a piece of silicon that cross the back of my heal is very effective in preventing the sock from slipping. I am replacing a competitor sock that tries to fix the slipping problem by making it a tight fit on my foot. Their solution causes discomfort with my toes. I will be buying these again!
Can't believe you can buy 6 pairs of socks this nice for so cheap. I wear size 9 shoes so I ordered the small/medium, and they fit ok but they are a little small and wish I'd ordered the medium/large. They are very thin, but not as thin as hose, and they are very low cut with a little silicon in the heal to keep it from slipping off. Of coarse I haven't had them long enough to say how long they will last, I'll try and update next year.
Love these socks! Comfortable and they stay put. No sliding!
I am so happy with this no show socks. I ended up ordering again to replace all my socks available for 7 days.
These socks are incredible. Usually my socks roll and fall almost immediately. I worn these for the entire day and they didn’t fall. Finally a product that meets and exceeds the claims.
