Happy Tuesday, readers - and a new day to celebrate the wonderful world of socks! A few weeks back, we highlighted family-owned and operated sock company, Feetures. Their comfortable and quality crew designs had us coming back for more, so we were lucky enough to get our hands on a few pairs of Feetures' latest 'Hidden' collection! A big 'Thank You!' to Feetures for providing some socks for us to check out.
We definitely wanted to share our thoughts on the overall design, feel, and construction elements that make these invisible no-show styles an excellent investment into your summer wardrobe. What makes them 'hidden' is their ultra low cut, creating an illusion of not wearing any socks (perhaps under your favorite loafers or sneakers, when you don't want to sacrifice the comfort of wearing socks, but don't want to particularly show off your socks).
One of our favorite conundrums in the sock world, is the constant battle to find no-show socks that don't just slide right off when you're wearing them. To work against the laws of 'sock nature,' Feetures has included 'Heel Hugger' technology, non-slip grip and arch support in their styles; to keep your socks from slipping around inside your shoe. In addition, a seamless toe is incorporated in the front, to help avoid blisters. That, we can be grateful for; when it comes to quality and durability in socks, you get what you pay for. What's great about Feetures socks is that they come with a lifetime guarantee - that's pretty amazing customer experience if you ask us!
We'll talk a little bit more about the designs here; we absolutely love the variety available. While there are colorful options (pictured here), if you want to go a little more neutral, there are styles that will suit your needs. You can find these options and more on Feetures online shop. P.S., we love the shopping experience on their site; you can shop by silhouette, collection, popularity or even activity! Do you have a favorite outdoor sport or Summer event that you participate in? We'd love to hear what you think is important as far as socks go, during those activities. Let us know in the comment section below.
On the Women's Hidden styles, we love the use of the satin-type elastic at the opening; a lot of times, we'll see a matte elastic used in this particular silhouette, but we've got to give some kudos to great design choices here with this upgraded look. As far as the women's styles go, our top favorite is the Women’s Hidden Super Low Floral in Lavender; we love the feminine color and pattern; florals are always key in Summer style, and the colors are spot on for this lifestyle group.
Moving on to the Men's collection - we like the slightly higher cut on the front of the sock; shoe-friendly for the guys, and have that seamless feel that makes them easy to slip-on when you're in a hurry. The stripes come in a few different colorways that offer a fresh look and easy to pair with whatever you're wearing. Again, for the guys that prefer a more neutral look; solids are available as well. Take a look at some of the options below, and be sure to view more details about each one online!
We're so glad to say that these socks not only look great, but feel great as well. With the use of synthetic fibers in this type of active sock silhouette, we find it to be an appropriate use of material, as the fibers are able to manage moisture and provide durability for everyday wear and use. Soft and comfortable, and just the right fit so they didn't remind us that we were wearing socks all day, we will certainly be wearing these for a long time. We also loved that we didn't go sliding on the hardwood floors when we walked around with them. :)
Overall, we have to give excellent marks for design, construction, quality and comfort - great job, Feetures! We hope you all liked this week's sock feature on the blog; be sure to check out our social media shout-outs and stay tuned next week for more sock-feed.
