So...here's the deal: I love my Sanuk slip-on shoes but can't wear socks with them because the socks show (and I definitely did not want to live out that fashion faux-paux -- I'm quirky enough!). If you don't wear socks with shoes, feet stink. I HATE stinky feet. I repeat, HATE. H.A.T.E. Hate stinky feet. So, I set upon a quest to find the perfect below-the-shoe socks.
Before I found these super-sweet footies, I did try using a few different types of nylon footies that I bought at Target. They (a) didn't stay on my feet or (b) my feet sweat in them because they didn't breath, which =stinky feet (and if you read my first paragraph, you'll know how violently I detest stinky feet).
I've been a fan of smartwool socks in the past for hiking, but was skeptical at spending so much on one pair. They're worth every penny. They stay on. My feet and shoes don't stink. They don't show above the shoes. Problem solved.
My only criticism: After 1.5-ish months, the fabric is a little pilly. This doesn't bug me, but it may bother some people.
On the fence, still? I encourage you to buy one pair and try it out. I did... and I'm only writing a review because I'm back to buy more!
