    White casual footwear - what socks?

    Never really wore white casual footwear until my recent purchase of white JP's. I now find myself in a bit of a quandary..........

    What socks with what trousers / jeans / chinos? Cheers folks

    The invisible ones from M&S. They're amazing. They have a little glue bit on the heel to prevent it from slipping.

    The 5-pack of multi-coloured ones from Debenhams
    Trainers will always look better without socks but the white trainer epitomises "Casual" (in a good way). Anything goes.

    Hi Des, don't suppose you have a link for the ones you mean, do you?

    Just browsing on M&S site and the ones I can see that are 'trainer liner' socks don't look particularly invisible, like up to around the ankle type thing.

    Cheers

    Heritage colours like burgundy / mustard / racing green for chunky socks


    Always prefer no-show socks though. Bought a few pairs from Topman recently and they too have the gummy bit to stop slips - only ones I've ever had that never slip (and I've had the Falke ones which are supposed to be the best - and they are like £10 a pair)

    Topman ones here -

    5 pairs for a tenner too... Will def be stocking up for summer

    The invisible socks from Next are good as well. Got the gummy strips and don't slip. Couple of quid cheaper than Topman ones as well so win-win all round!

    Buy White Invisible Trainer Socks Five Pack from the Next UK online shop

    I'm quite sure it's these ones
    2 Pairs of Freshfeet™ Cotton Rich Shoe Liner Socks with Silver

    Although there is no mention of the gum bit at the heel which is essential. Tbh, because they are extremely thin they may not be useful for shoes that aren't meant to be worn sockless. I wear them with flyknits and espradrilles and they do the trick. But for other trainers I'm considering these
    Nike Lightweight No-Show Socks (3 Pair). Nike Store UK

    Or like those ones from Topman. a tiny bit showing at the top would be fine for JPs and would stay on and sort some sweat out.

    Ah nice one, cheers Des.
    Yeah if you click on the 'view more details' link it does say "Low rise with heel grip for easy wear" ... so all good!

    thanks for the other links too, lads, will give them all a look.
