The 10 Best Men’s No-Show Socks Available at Walmart

The case for no-show socks should always be on the table, especially when we’re talking about wearing them during the warmer months. Between formal attire paired with loafers or for your gym fits paired with sneakers, no-show socks are a year-round article of clothing.

The “socks versus no-socks” feud is one that seems destined to rage on for as long as the one between the Hatfields and the McCoys. No matter what’s going on with trouser silhouettes — skinny leg, wide leg, shorter break, broken break, cuffed, shorts of all lengths — some guys are gonna want to wear a sock for functionality, a splash of color, or just a fun expression of personality. Some guys, on the other hand, just like that “toes-gone-commando” feeling … or maybe they want to show off their perfectly toned and tanned ankles. While we support both camps here, we do worry about the long-term health (and the stink factor) of shoes worn without socks.

We have one friend who swears that he always wears high-quality leather shoes sans socks and has no problems. But for the rest of us — with our fetid feet, stinky sneakers, noxious oxfords, and loathsome loafers — wearing a pair of no-show socks can dramatically extend the life of shoes that are otherwise destined for the dustbin. And socks offer a bit of pampering to our soft soles. Read on for the best no-show socks you can buy at your local Walmart — the one-stop shop where everything you’ll be presented with has been carefully vetted to maintain quality while also promising value.
