    Falke makes a great pair.
    Last I checked they were available on ASOS.

    I like Falke too. Quite durable. You guys might consider Muji too, they are quite good too. Moreover they are cheaper.

    I have various brands of these no-show socks, and really, the best are the ones from Payless Shoes. Really. Look for the Dexter brand.

    +1, I just picked up a few of these the other day. 100% cotton and inexpensive.

    If anyone is still looking for a good and very affordable no show sock to wear with loafers I suggest going to WalMart. I was there today with my daughter picking up some supplies she needed for a project and found some there. The come in 2 sizes, which is great for people like me with only size 6 shoes. They are tan and have a nice rubber heel pad to make sure they do not fall. They are only 4 dollars for 2 pairs. I put them on and wore them around for a couple hours and they never slipped. I think this is the least expensive option yet.

    +1, just got a few pairs of those. note that they have both a low cut and also a completely invisible one so don't get the wrong pair.

    You've pulled an attractive woman and brought her back to yours. Eventually you'll have to slip your shoes off. How do you do that without revealing the hideous turn-off that are those 'invisible' socks? If you can't wear shoes without socks, don't. </rant>

    I had something similar occur to me a couple of weeks ago at the airport

    I tried the loafer socks from Journey, and I can still see them when I wear my Sebago boat shoes. Does anyone know a smaller sock? I'm looking pretty hard at the Falke family sneaker socks, but I'm worried I will have the same problem. Any ideas? Edit: I maybe should have put this in SW&D but I'm too comfortable in MC [​IMG]

    I think you, in particular, need a sturdy sock that will cover your heel.

    hmmm I wonder. They don't show when I wear my Margaritaville boat shoes, just my Sebago's. (The Sebagos have a lot lower cut though) Edit: I can barely see them in the Sebago's, but it annoys me none the less.

    MS&amp;Co socks are the best deal and they are truly no-show but there is the occasional heel slips.

    You can wear loafers with or without socks. Boats only without.
