***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION

Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

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

<div class="IPBDescription">need to find some new socks for this summer</div>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?<br />
<br />
Thanks,<br />

    Sounds crazy but...<br />
    <br />
    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!?!<br />

    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.<br />

    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.<br />
    <br />
    They are cheap and last a long time.<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    My Footjoy no shows, also womens, but they are 5 times as much and don't last half as long.<br />
    <br />
    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.<br />

    I started wearing Feetures Original last year, and they are great socks.<br />
    They can be ordered in different sizes too.<br />
    They sell them alot at Tennis stores and the like, but I buy them online(at a tennis store heheh).<br />
    They cost more, around 6-$8 depending on what you want, but they are worth it for golf IMO.

    I wear the [url=&quot;http://www.defeet.com&quot;]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.

    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!

    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.

    I recommend Balga Hidden Comfort - around 8.99 a pair, there really hold up well.

    +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.

    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.<br />

    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 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.<br />
    <br />
    Socks being socks, they don't rank high on the ladder of status.<br />
    <br />
    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.<br />
    <br />
    I'll stick with my Timex but will splurge on the socks because by golly, I'm worth it!
