    I've been trying to find socks that don't show when you wear slipons, all the ankle/low rise socks don't really work when you're wearing slipons. I was thinking that something like these http://www.bananarepublic.com/browse...865&pid=555740 might work. Anybody know where to find similar products, ie loafer or no show socks?

    H&M in downtown DC had some a month or so ago. Great deal, too--2 pairs for $7 in black or white.

    They're probably gone by now, though.

    I'm actually kind of interested in finding something like this too. I have a pair of AE loafers that I love with tapered jeans but I get blisters if I wear 'em sockless all day.

    This is a good question. They are hard to find and expensive. I've been using the Banana Republic ones. I am not sure if this is true of all loafer socks but after walking around for literally 5 minutes, they ride down and eventually just bunch up under my feet. I had to fix it a dozen times during the evening. I wear them with my Sperry Topsiders during the summers sometime and it's so annoying.

    i might just have to try those banana republic socks out sometime, on the website it looked like just a pair

    two pairs for that price isn't too bad

    I'm do not remember the name of the brand that Nordstrom sells, but I've like them quite a bit for the $7-8 I paid for them. Hand-linked toes with snug loafers are very comfortable.

    i couldn't find them on the site, are they only at the store?

    Most likely. Nordstrom only sells a tiny portion of its inventories on their site.

    if you're not above walking into the women's section of a target or walmart, and if your foot is like a 9-11, target and walmart have footies or liners

    i buy the all cotton ones in black for about $2 a pair. they work great as long as you're not doing anything to strenous otherwise they tend to slipoff. i mean i imagine if you're wearing shoes that you need to wear footies with, you aren't doing too much running around

    i wear em with my driving moccs or vans slipons mostly
