6 Best No-Show Socks You'll Forget You're Even Wearing

As the temperature rises, so too does the inclination to go sock-free. We get it: few things feel better on a hot day than sliding your foot into cool leather. The thing is, you don't want to forgo socks entirely, though, or you'll quickly find yourself in the land of smelly feet (and painful blisters). Instead, bulk-buy a horde of no-show socks, which get the job done as invisibly and efficiently as an MI6-trained super-spy.

Marcoliani Five-Pack Invisible Touch Pima Cotton-Blend No-Show Socks

These no-show socks from Marcoliani are an exercise in challenging expectations. At first glance, sure, they may not look like much. But know that they're designed with maximum comfort in mind. For starters, they're made out of what may be the world's softest sock fabric—a blend of Pima cotton, nylon, and a touch of spandex. And then there's the topline, which is just the right amount of elastic: it'll give where you need it, but not so much that you chafe. What more can a guy ask from his summer footwear?
