    Purchased a pair of drivers shoes recently that fit perfectly with those little nylon socks they give you to try on in store. Got home and they're just a bit too snug with my typical dress sock, and I don't feel comfortable wearing them sock-less. Looking for something no-show, or that shows but in a sport style (color, patter, etc), as thin as possible. Any recommendations or advice? Thanks.

    Perhaps try a half size bigger shoe.

    A driver shoe would surely stretch a bit with wearing.

    You should have no problems finding very thin socks though. Pantherella makes a range which they call 'fine guage' that are quite thin. Great for hot climates.

    Try going sockless...you might get used to it (it can be a bit liberating...though I'll admit that when I do I generally will pull my heels out while sitting to let them air.

    Also, really cheap socks might do the trick. They're paper thin and you'll burn through a pair in a few months. But hey, they're cheap, so stockpile 'em.
