Best Loafer Liners and No Show (Hidden) Socks for Men and Women

Summer is well underway, which means you’ve probably ditched the jeans and boots for your boat shoes or summer sneakers. We’ve rounded up the best loafer liners and no show socks so you can keep your sock profile on the DL without having to constantly fish around inside your shoe for it.

You should resist the temptation to skip socks if you’re wearing warm weather shoes like slip-on loafers or sneakers because by not wearing socks, you’re inviting germs, blisters, and even blood and sweat stains into your good shoes. Not to mention a nasty smell that never seems to leave.

Although socks can add a little extra pizazz and personality to your outfit, you should update your look for the summer and try a hidden sock. Others don’t have to see it, but you’ll know it’s there.         

Socks made of high-quality fabrics wick sweat and moisture away from your feet to keep them cool, dry, and comfortable in the heat and in your shoes. Merino wool and other wicking fibers are excellent for managing moisture and keeping unwanted odors at bay. You’ll also need socks that won’t slip, stink, or fall apart after one wear or wash. Many no-show socks are also designed with non-slip grips on the heel so your sock will stay in place.

Check out our favorite loafer liners and no show socks, perfect for summer shoes.
