Always seems to happen when I'm in a mad rush, like when I only have 20 minutes to get from Gate Alpha to Gate Omega at the airport and I'm balancing 40 pounds of luggage. Oh, how I hate that! I can feel them making the downward slide, ending all bunched up in the arch and there's nothing I can do but suffer and keep moving!

I know, I know, it's probably some foot signal that it's time to buy new socks. But why oh why can't they tell me this when I'm NOT in a hurry?!? Would it be too much to ask that they send me the signal when I'm, I don't know, in the SOCK DEPARTMENT of the store, eh?

Pffft I should just go sockless. That'd show 'em!

I feel your pain. I used to have the same problem. I solved it by moving to California and now I only wear socks with my running shoes. The rest just sit unloved in the dresser.

I never heard of No-Show socks before. Yahoo'ing it has revealed a whole new world to me! I also found Shoe Liners at No-Nonsense, which apparently are the sole part of a stocking.

Still, I like the cushioned feel of real socks. Not too thick but not too thin, either. And although I love my "natural socks" (skin), they aren't practical for at home. We don't wear shoes in our house (heh that's a whole other topic!), but we like to have some cushion.

Keds makes a no show cotton sock that is padded. That will give you the cushion that you like with the no falling. Target has carried them in the past as has Kohls or Mervyn's and possibly JC Penneys.
