Become a No Show Pro 

No Show socks can be a great addition to your wardrobe and accessory to your outfits, but knowing when to wear them and what to wear them with is key. First, let’s start with the basics.


If you’re going for a sockless look, but actually skip out on socks, your feet can be in for a stinky, sweaty, and blister-filled outing. No fun, right? That’s where No Show socks can save the day. But not all socks are created equal. Your average no show sock tends to slip, slide, and bunch more with every step. Enter Smartwool from stage right. We set out to develop the best-fitting, best-feeling Merino wool No Show socks money can buy. And did just that.

Smartwool’s collection of No Shows are designed to help bring you the in-shoe comfort you need without sacrificing the invisible sock look you love. Each pair is built with an internal heel gripper so you’re the only one on the move. We added in our Shred Shield™ technology for durability. And the combination of responsibly sourced Merino wool with our Virtually Seamless™ Toe technology makes for a sock that feels as invisible as it looks—ready to stay on, go far, and help you look your best.

Now that you know where to get your No Show socks (wink wink), let’s talk about the best times to wear them.

Are No Shows Ever a 'No, No?'

As you’d expect, warm weather is the ideal time to break out your No Show socks. Extra low-cut socks can be worn with just about any outfit. But they aren't made to be worn with your long, nearly-scraping-the-sidewalk slacks. No, no. We want you to show some ankle any time you’re sporting these socks. That means wearing hemmed pants, cuffed jeans, or shorts. Dresses and capris are a great option too. And the best part about pairing Smartwool’s No Show socks with your favorite fun in the sun styles? The Merino wool, of course. Our No Show socks offer all-day sweat management and odor resistance to help keep you as comfortable as you are confident in whatever you’re wearing.

You’re so close to becoming a No Show Pro. Your final lesson is all about pairing your socks with the right shoes.

Any Shoe. Any Style.

Did we save the best (and easiest and most exciting) for last? Oh yeah, we did. The great thing about No Show socks is their versatility. You now know that they work with a wide range of outfits. And the same goes for footwear. From casual slip-ons to sneakers, boat shoes to penny loafers, our No Show socks fit into all types of shoes perfectly—helping ensure no sock ever distracts you from your freshest kicks and favorite styles.

You did it! You’re a No Show Pro. You now have all of the No Show knowledge you need to take care of your feet, your shoes, and your styles. So go ahead—get yourself a few pairs of our Merino wool No Show socks and elevate every outfit and outing. Every warm-weather day.
