Might be worth a try for £4 (+P&P)?

Thanks Russ. I did end up buying some. Read some reviews online, definitely a mixed bag of views so I took a punt.

Yeah, I’m not stretching to those prices for a pair of invisible socks but appreciate the heads up

Any recommendations for no show socks that do not fray or slip? Got rototo but they have laddered quite quickly.

Mine also seem to be fraying with threads coming loose quite quickly. Was wondering if It was just me lol. Kinda regret having a bulk order sent to my UK office. I won't visit till July so too late to return lol

Muji do them, slightly thicker than other supposedly good brands. Last years as long as you don't lose one which seems to happen to me all the time.

The latest Uniqlo ones are as good as the pantherella and falke ones I have and you get 3 pairs for £12.50 or something.

As above, been using the uniqlo ones for years.

They’ve got thicker no shows for trainers and thinner no shows for loafers/shoes.

Thanks all. I need ones that don't slip as I am a UK11 and the only seem to stretch and lose shape. Have tried m&s and falke I think before with no luck.

Rototo had the most heel coverage but frayed on the toe as I said.

Might sound like a pisstake but is a legit question.
You’ll burn through any socks if you don’t tame that big toe nail.

These are the thick uniqlo ones, which are perfect for trainers, they’re ribbed across the middle and have the rubber stays in the heels:

These are the thin ones, which slightly lower cut and perfect for loafers/shoes:

I’m a 10.5uk, and my Mrs is a 5, and we both use the same ones with no issue.

Those uniqlo ones look like they are not low enough, do they show at all? Nothing worse than being able to see no show socks
