Why No-Show Socks Slip & How to Keep Them On

Are you tired of bending down to pull your no-show socks back up? Whether you’re running a marathon, playing tennis, or just walking to work, nobody wants to constantly re-adjust their socks. That’s why we’ve designed no-show socks that don't slip down. But before we get into that, let’s talk about why some invisible socks don’t stay up and how to keep no-show socks from slipping.

Why Do No-Show Socks Slip Off

So, why do no-show socks slip off? For the same reasons any clothing item does–improper fit or poor quality. If you wear no-show socks that are too small or too big, it’s more likely to cause slippage. Proper fit is essential for no-show socks that don’t slip down. Additionally, lower-end socks manufactured with inferior materials stretch and deform after use, leading to slippage even when they initially fit correctly.  

How to Keep No-Show Socks from Slipping

The best way to keep invisible socks from slipping is to purchase no-show socks that don’t slip down. This means choosing the best fabric, size, and design, as not all invisible socks are created equal.

For no-show socks that don’t slip down, choose ones made from polyester or nylon rather than cotton. You’ll also want to select your proper sock size and follow care instructions to keep your socks from shrinking or stretching, which can cause slippage. Lastly, pay close attention to the design of the no-show sock. No-show socks that don’t slip down are engineered with heel grippers placed in the optimal position and big enough to do their job correctly (i.e., keep your sock in place).

Where to Find No-Show Socks that Don’t Slip Down?

Rather than wondering how to keep no-show socks from slipping, ditch the socks that slip and choose invisible socks that stay on your heel, regardless of the activity you're performing. At Feetures, we’ve engineered our invisible socks to stay in place using these technologically-advanced features.

1. Heel Hugger Technology

The heel gripper technology on a pair of no-show socks is central to them staying in place. At Feetures, our Everyday invisible socks feature a band of high-quality, self-fusing silicone tape that keeps the socks from slipping inside the shoe. Our invisible Elite performance socks boast Heel Hugger 2.0 technology with improved silicone tape placement in the heel, designed specifically for runners.

2. Higher Heel Tab

While you don’t want no-show socks to show, a higher heel tab is essential for keeping invisible socks in place while running. Our Elite invisible socks feature a high heel tab that stays hidden in athletic shoes while providing extra coverage without sliding down.

3. Targeted Compression & Anatomical Fit

At Feetures, we believe functional socks should also be comfortable, which is why our no-show socks feature zone-specific targeted compression and an anatomical design. This provides a superior fit, which is essential to minimizing slippage.

4. iWick Fibers & Technical Mesh Ventilation

Our Everyday and Elite invisible socks use iWick fibers that keep your feet cool and dry, even during long days on your feet or hard training sessions. The Elite no-show socks also feature technical mesh ventilation for added breathability during intense runs and workouts.

5. The Perfect Toe

Last but not least, invisible socks from Feetures boast The Perfect Toe (no irritating toe seams). So, not only do you not have to worry about your socks slipping, but you’ll have no sock-related issues at all.

What Shoes Can You Wear with No-Show Socks?

Feetures’ Everyday invisible socks are perfect for wearing with loafers, sneakers, or ankle boots. Depending on the design of your shoe, you can also wear them with ballet flats or other dress shoes. Feetures’ Elite invisible socks are ideal for wearing with athletic shoes for hiking, running, cycling, golfing, etc. They feature a higher heel tab that protects the back of your foot without being seen.
