Vivarati No-Show Loafer Socks

There’s something so liberating about going sockless—until your feet start sweating. And while powders and foot deodorants will absorb some of the perspiration and odor, there’s no way to fully replace the myriad benefits of a sock without actually wearing one. Here’s the ultimate solution: no-show socks, which give the appearance of bare feet without the smelly side effects.

They keep falling off

love the concept, but in reality it didn't work. they just kept falling off of my feet inside my loafers.

I'm a size 12 - maybe my feet are too big. Would have loved to have had this work, but unfortunately it didn't.

Great comfort, just don't be seen without shoes on!

I thought these socks are AWESOME for boat shoe / loafer type situations. I've always loved the look of boat shoes, but hated how badly the smelt after a couple of wears in the heat of the summer.

This keeps the smell of the shoes in check and provides an extra level of comfort. They look VERY weird on your feet, so not exactly something you want to be caught wearing, but if unseen, are super comfortable and a great idea. I would definitely recommend them

Heel grip

Loved the idea but the heel grips did not keep the socks from slipping. I wasn't able to make it out of my front door before the socks had slipped off my heels.

Heel doesn't stay on

My feet are just a bit on the smaller side, so there may be some issue with the socks not stretching enough to provide tension, but the heals on these socks always come off and end up under the balls of my feet while I'm walking. It appears they have tried to prevent this problem by adding "sticky" dots to the inside of the heal to help it stay on, but no such luck. I love the idea of these socks, but the execution leaves a bit to be desired.

Like the idea

I like the idea as no one wants to have smelly feet but, darn things wouldn't stay on through out the day and I found myself digging into my shoes quite often.

Finally

I have been searching for these forever. I have even been temped to buy women's socks. Not normal for a guy to do. I have not been able to locate the right socks that are low profile enough to wear without being seen. Finally I have found them. Cool colors too, even if you can't see them.

Not Bad
Purchased

As many have said, they slip off a bit easy. On the other hand though they are very comfortable, they look good, and you feel good wearing them. The design makes them easy to put on, and after a minute you really forget you even have any socks on. All in all they create comfort, a great look, and are a cool item to have ready in your sock drawer when you need them.

This'll work better on the female version of me

Received in my May 2013 box. I've been on the lookout for the next evolution of the no-show sock and I thought I had a winner with its thin fabric, silicone dots on the heels, elastic bands near the start of the arch & back of sock, and an all-in-one concept. Alas, these were also the reasons I cannot use them.

The Thin fabric plus the elastic band near the arch made the front of the sock enforced but then not enough to keep it in the back.
The silicone dots and the back elastic band are too small to not only keep the sock on heel while in shoe but also when you're putting it on. When I've put the sock on, it can barely reach over my heels.
Finally this all-in-one concept sounds great, but I believe it applies for the ladies and not us guys. With the narrower and smaller size of a woman's foot (average size between 7-8 [which is a men's 5-6]), the ideas noted above would work better on them.

Too small

The "one size" is too small for my husband's average sized feet, but he gave his to me and I like them! I'm not fond of the red, but the grey color is nice and neutral. While I do think a good pair of socks is worth $10... make sure they fit!

Love the socks!!

Just in time to pull out my summer shoes, these socks come in my Birchbox and I love them! They hide perfectly in my loafers and the grippers that help grip the sock to your foot is such a life saver! The are very comfortable and I will be buying more very soon. Thanks for sending out such awesome products!
