Best Low Cut or No Show Socks.....

rsjasonprsjasonp Members Posts: 209 ✭✭
need to find some new socks for this summer
I have chimed in on the "Best Sock" topic in the past couple of weeks. I really like the Swiftwick socks, I have several pair of the ones and fours that I wear with pants on the course, I will even wear the fours to work they are so comfortable. However they don't offer a low-cut or no-show version. The "Ones" are just a little high for me, I have always used the roll top Nike or Footjoys. Late last summer I used the Footjoy ProDry Extreme Roll-Top socks they were great but the heel gets a little loose over time. Plus I like the classic look of the Footjoys....anything out there that has a good tight fit (like Swiftwick) that you can't see with your shoes on?



Thanks,

Jason P.

    Sounds crazy but...



    Head to Walmart...Boys section...No-Show Starter Brand Socks. 3 different sizes to choose from and all are snug considering they are junior socks. Very cheap and great quality! Something like $6.00 bucks for 6 pairs!?!

    I thought swiftwick offered no shows called "zeros."

    Check out Sof Sole socks. They are available at places like Dick's and other sports-type stores. They are "performance" socks. Cost a little more but are really comfortable. Nice and light-weight and moisture-wicking for hot weather. Hold up well, too. I've had several pairs for over a year now and they still fit and feel great.

    I like pumas no show sport socks, not sure on name but they are very comfortable.

    glad this thread was made as I almost started one....





    are the swiftwick zero's truly no show socks? i've only seen them on the website and there they look like they are a little higher on the ankle than i would like. if you can compare, i currently wear the nike drifit no shows.

    Target...women's section by Prince (?), I buy them in black and white, they come in two different weights, one thin moisture wicking and the other a little thicker.



    They are cheap and last a long time.





    My Footjoy no shows, also womens, but they are 5 times as much and don't last half as long.



    I am a mens size 8.5 or 8, I find when I buy womens socks in the no-show variety they come out PERFECT.

    I started wearing Feetures Original last year, and they are great socks.

    They can be ordered in different sizes too.

    They sell them alot at Tennis stores and the like, but I buy them online(at a tennis store heheh).

    They cost more, around 6-$8 depending on what you want, but they are worth it for golf IMO.

    The Swiftwick zeros are a true no show sock. Poulter is just one of many pros out tour who wears them.

    thank you, i will give them a shot
  • rsjasonprsjasonp Members Posts: 209 ✭✭
    I do own 2 pair of the Zero's from Swiftwick....they are AWESOME socks but they sit above the ankle, you see a little too much shock for me....as compared to the Footjoys.

    I wear the [url="http://www.defeet.com"]www.defeet.com[/url] brand socks. They're not the cheapest but they don't wear out. I wear them for golf, running and cycling. They never lose their elasticity. They come in a few different styles so that is nice. Thick, thin, cool, wool, tube, no-show, etc. They're fantastic.

    A couple guys here got it right with the Thorlo and DeFeet recommendations. I like the Thorlo Experia line. Check out RRS and you can find some sales on great socks like Asics Kayano Lo, SmartWool PhD Lo (my favorite), and my go to the RRS Dryroad Wool Double Tab. If you like crazy 1/2" cushion check out the regular Thorlo line, the rest I mentioned are more supportive and geared towards sweat evaporation with only heel and forefoot cushioning.
    Haiku as a sig?
    They may be overrated
    But I'm rocking one!

    I wear these nike socks they have great support, thin and comfortable. Also there made for Right and Left foot specific and are a very low cut and have the extra "sock tab" in the back so that your heel doesnt get rubbed raw. I found them at Academy they are a little pricey ($11.99) but you really only need 2 pair!
  • jjarrett79jjarrett79 Members Posts: 140
    I wish socks would come in your shoe size instead of a range of sizes. I have never found a pair of no shows that actually don't show. I might have to start buying womens socks like the guy above.
  • edwellyedwelly Space For Rent Members Posts: 1,254
    I recommend Balga Hidden Comfort - around 8.99 a pair, there really hold up well.
  • GachnarGachnar Members Posts: 452
    +1 for the Smartwool PhD Running micros. very low cut, but with a little padding on the back so the back of your heel doesn't get rubbed raw, and being smartwool your feet will always be comfy and dry.

    I agree, but would also add Eurosocks Ace Cool Ghost sock to the list. The socks are a bit more spendy, but well worth the price when you compare the quality. Definitely the longest lasting socks I've tried, especially the comment on their elasticity. There's nothing worse than a no show sock slipping on your foot in the middle of a round.

    einstein.gif can somebody else weigh in on their experience with these then? one says they show, one says they don't show...i definitely don't want socks cut up around the ankle

    bump...was hoping to get some more feedback on my question about the swiftwick zeroes....it is a 1-1 tie right now

    It really does work, you can't see my socks at all, and they don't slip because they fit so tight. I now use the black ones for my dress slacks, I hate dress socks you can't keep up. Mens standard sizes are just too big for the no show look and comfort.

    Best socks I've ever come across are Powersox. I've been looking for the ultimate athletic sock since I was a kid and in 40 years never felt anything better.

    Nobody wears hanes? I buy them at target for like $10 for 6 pairs. They have one that they call a "liner" which is super low, but its pretty thin so I dont get that one. They they just have the standard low cut from the "premium" line that I wear. These ones are nice and thick and still pretty low. My biggest peeve is when then sock comes up above the shoe at the back of the ankle and both of these are fine. Or you can just buy the womens size and theyll be even lower. Cheap and good. No chance that im paying $10 a pair for socks.

    I got some low cut adidas at marshalls for cheap. they're really nice. not sure which ones they are, but they are low cut

    I have stocked up on similar Nike dri-fit "cushion" socks. They don't have that tab in the back, but they're very form-fitting/snug, comfortable, cool, and no-show. They're great socks.

    And in other threads, members are talking about the thousands they paid for their watches and their expensive cigars.



    Socks being socks, they don't rank high on the ladder of status.



    I used to buy the bargain bulk packs, but have found there is a considerable difference in comfort, performance and durability. You do get what you pay for, even with socks.



    I'll stick with my Timex but will splurge on the socks because by golly, I'm worth it!
