SmartWool is that: smart. It's warm in winter and cool in summer. Merino is the king of wool; there is nothing finer. If you care about your feet and want to feel good all day, wear SmartWool. These little slippies are perfect inside your little flats you would normally wear with nothing, but they up the comfort level immeasurably. Take a look at the inside of your shoe. Does that really look comfortable? It's not meant to be; that's why we have socks. But we sometimes don't like the look of a sock, or perhaps your shoe won't accommodate the bulk of a sock. No matter. These sockies are thin enough to fit yet still feel substantial enough that you don't feel all the lumps inside your shoes. Wash them in cold without softener for the best of the merino. Also, hang them to dry instead of throwing them in the dry. They will shrink a little bit. The package will tell you it's okay to dry, but don't do it unless the socks are actually a little bit too big for you. "Dry low" just gets too hot in the average home machine, and these socks are too precious. Hang them on your lingerie rack, over a hanger, on the towel rod, or just lay them out on top of the dryer. Don't complain about the price. Your feet are worth it. And, by the way, I'm still wearing the first pair of SmartWools I bought 15 years ago. Try that with a bargain pair.

I cannot believe how many good reviews these have! They are exactly the same as any other "not socks" that I have bought in the past. The backs slip right down your heel as soon as you start walking. I am so disappointed, I had such high hopes after reading all the reviews here. How is everyone else able to actually keep these on their feet?! I end up walking around with them all bunched up and moving towards my toes/middle of the bottom of my feet, every single time! Yes - they are soft and comfortable - if you are planning to sit all day long. The second you start to walk around though, good luck keeping them on.

LOVE >LOVE> LOVE these socks!!! my feet tend to sweat which means they are wet which makes me freeze all the time! These are the ONLY socks I own that keep my feet dry and warm! I originally found Smartwool socks at a local store and was heartbroken when I lost one while doing laundry. Luckily, Zappos had them and I quickly bought new ones. Even as the weather starts to get warmer I'll be using them with my sneakers... Perfect!

These are my favorite socks, hands down. I've tried other "no show" socks made from cheaper materials and there's no comparison. These are the only ones that really offer the benefits of a normal sock (they're reasonably warm and they actually stay on) while being "no show". My advice: if you're on the cusp size-wise, size down. I'm normally a 7 or 7.5 and the size SMALL in these (which claim to only go up to size 6.5) fit me perfectly.

I read a lot about these before purchasing a pack in black and a pack in the neutral color. What I like about them so far is that they actually keep my feet warmer - and dryer - and don't move around as much as some other footies I've tried. Pricey? Yes. However, I think they might be worth it, especially if they hold up over time (I've only had them for a few weeks now, and not wearing daily).

I purchased these to wear with heels. I wanted to like these, but when I got them they were huge, even when I ordered a size down. I tried wearing them with multiple pairs of heels, and they showed in every corner. Yes, they are warm, but they are too large and too bulky for what I purchased them for.

I have several pair of Smartwool socks which I love. When I saw these sleuth footies I thought I'd give them a try. So happy I did! These are fantastic. They do not slip or slide down. They don't hide in all my shoes depending how deep the toe box is but so worth it for the shoes that are not as deep cut. I wash and dry them in a lingerie bag so they don't get lost or stick to other clothing.

I bought these recently, and they arrived the evening before I left on a two week trip. I did find time to wash them before I left and wore them almost every day. In short, I loved them. I didn't want to wear any other socks after I put them on the first time. I wear shoe size 5.5, and ordered small. The smalls seem a little loose on my heel, but that doesn't mean they slip. I walked miles and even ran in them, and they stayed on my heel 100% of the time. That has not been my experience with other no show socks. They are soft, comfortable, warm, and breathable. The fabric is awesome. This is important to me because I am diabetic and must protect my feet from rubbing and blisters. Seams on socks frequently cause me problems, but I had none with these. My one complaint is they are not entirely invisible, but I can't size down, since I am already a small. Fortunately, I am pale, so the nude color doesn't stand out so much. Apparently, I don't care as I am back to buy more.

These are perfect under a pair of flat. They make the shoes much more comfortable, and a bit warmer. I do have trouble w/keeping my feet warm and they are helpful. They run small. I will wash them w/delicates and not tumble dry them, as I am a women's 11B and they just fit! That is the only warning I have for you ... otherwise they are perfect! PS: I have 4 other pairs which are good for under a sneaker ... so I am glad I came across these.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these socks. The small gel piece at the heal is the key to not having them slip. You don't even feel the gel piece when wearing. If you are between sizes, I recommend buying a size down. I have both S and M as I am a size 7-7 1/2. The mediums occassionaly slip depending on the shoe I am wearing.

Fantastic liners - they stay up, keep my feet dry, and I've been using them for about 6 months now and showing no sign of wear and tear. Seems like I have one or two pairs that hug the back of my heel a little too much and leave an indent by the end of the day, but more of a minor annoyance.

I bought these cream-colored socks to wear with my Sam Edelman Felicia shoes. They do slightly peek out of the shoes, but I don't really mind as comfort is more important to me.They fit well and are comfortable enough to wear on long walking trips. I've had them since June, and so far all pairs of socks in this pack have proven durable.

Perfect thickness, not too thick or thin (or hot or cool). I was a little on the fence because they are a bit pricey, but I'm very happy with them. I might order them in black too. Works with my classic slip on shoe-- the cut is perfect. No more sweaty feet.

I wear these socks most of the year (moderate weather here). They are perfect with flats. They are well made and comfortable. They cost a lot of money, but they last a long time with good care (I put them in a lingerie bag in the laundry machine and then take them out and air dry). If you are between sizes especially, perhaps not a good idea to let them go in the dryer. I've had some medium sized pairs go in by mistake and I think they must've shrunk a little bit and now they are uncomfortable. It is also possible that my feet getting bigger in the past few years are the cause of the discomfort.

These "socks" do run small. They work in some shoes and not in others, depending on the material of the shoe. When they work, they are great. I love smart wool in general. For the type of socks they are, these are the best I've found!

There are great hidden socks for flats & driving mocs. They show in some of my flats, which I don't like, but they don't show in my driving mocs, my Born Juliannes or my Softwalk Napas, of which I have multiple pairs. They keep my feet warm and dry. Seriously, the wicking properties of wool are amazing. I wear Smartwool socks to run in and so I knew these would also wick. Love them! Bought them in black & cream, and even though they're not inexpensive, they're totally worth it.

Brands I'd also recommend: Smartwool socks are the best.
