Can you wear socks with flats?

Flats are one of the most popular women’s fashion trends from traditional ballet flats to Mary Janes. When warm weather hits, these cute and comfy shoes can become more slippery than they are chic, especially for those of us with sweaty feet.

Wondering if wearing flats with socks will help beat the sweat and the stink? Most no-shows almost always show or slip around, but wearing just any socks can give off a weird vibe. Keep reading to find out why FLAT SOCKS® are the best no show socks for flats.

Types of Socks for Ballet Flats

Believe it or not, Ripley, flats are not no-sock shoes. At least not entirely. Just like wearing Crocs™ with socks came into style, wearing a pair of frilly socks with ballet flats also has its own look. Think white ankle socks with Mary Janes for that “old money” aesthetic.

Some of the most popular socks to wear with women’s flats include:

  • No shows or liner socks
  • Crew socks
  • Knee highs
  • Tights
  • Wool socks
  • Ruffled socks

What’s the problem with most of these styles? No show socks slip off your ankles and bunch up, so you constantly have to fix them. Tights slip around inside shoes while socks with full foot coverage like crew socks, knee highs, and wool socks can become warm and hard to style. The solution is a flat sock to match your flat shoe.

What Makes FLAT SOCKS the Best

It is kind of in the name, but FLAT SOCKS are the best socks for flats that don’t slip, show, or stink. Comfy, seamless, and the shape of a shoe insert, they work like socks only they go in your shoes and not on your feet. They are also machine washable and dryer safe.

Sweaty feet in flats are uncomfortable and wearing flats daily without any socks can get smelly fast. When you wear a fresh pair of no-show FLAT SOCKS, no one will know that your shoes were once a mysterious source of foot odor. How will they ever know?
