    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.

    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>

    By drawing her attention to my meaty manhood, that's how.

    Who gives a shit if women also wear them, if they are practical. Women also wear pants and I'm not going to stop wearing pants because my wife does too.

    Yes, but hopefully you're not going to start buying women's pants, as implicitly suggested by the OP.

    The best I've tried are the Johnston &amp; Murphys. The Banana Republics are too flimsy and don't last either.

    Oh yeah, because looking at your red, blistered and crusted up feet is going to get her pussy juices flowing like niagra falls [​IMG] When wearing loafer socks all you do is take them off at the same time you're taking off your shoes and slip them in there. Not a difficult concept... If you want to show how big your balls are by destroying your shoes and feet then go ahead, but don't malign others because they don't want to ruin their shoes and have blisters and caluses.

    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.

    +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.

    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.
