Can’t go wrong with Stance socks. These beauties fit perfectly, the rubber heel grips keep them in place and they are far more comfortable than alternatives available. Spend that bit extra on decent gear and you won’t be disappointed. Wear them with my Vans Classic Slip-On, out of sight but adds to the comfort levels. Definitely recommend getting these if want socks for comfort but keeping the no look sock style.
I love Stance socks, especially the crew height ones with the little grippy tab in the back to keep them from slipping down your leg; I tell you what, they'll make you want to slap ya momma. Anyway, I finally found the perfect no show sock that doesn't peek out from my loafers AND don't slip off my heel after eight steps like it's not even trying. That's right, I had stumbled across the Gamut sock. Comfy, stylish, good for daily wear or even working out; the perfect all-arounder. Fast forward a few months and it's time update the sock game one more time; I know where I'm going, not even a question in my mind - Stance baby. I find the Gamut 2! Upgrade, alright! If this is anything like R Kelly's Ignition (Remix) I'm about to be hot and fresh out the kitchen every day of the week! $50 for 6 pair? You can't put a price on quality, I'm out the door. I try them on immediately when I get them and notice something, the hole is smaller and the top is longer. I slide into my loafers and sure enough, my no show socks have turned into "Come see a show! Hurry, hurry, step right up!" This is less like Ignition (Remix) and more like When Harry Met Lloyd. I should have known better, you can't improve on perfection. I'm an optimist though; maybe if I wash them they'll shrink in all the right places and fit just like my other ones. Rookie mistake. They still don't look right and now that they're washed I can't return them. Be warned, if you're looking for the same glory you found in the Gamut socks, look somewhere else. These don't hold up to the standard.
Being a fan of Stance brand shirts for a while now I had high hopes when i bought these socks that were more-or-less guaranteed to "not quit"...i.e. stay on the heel. But even with the three what i would consider substantial rubber grip things in the heel portion of the sock, they simply ALWAYS slide off my heel. This happens on my Vans (tied or untied), Nike running shoes, dress shoes, etc...maybe my heel bone doesn't protrude front the back of my foot enough but they just don't work for me. Maybe I should have tried them before washing them but oh well, into the back of the drawer they go.. Would try to return them but maybe its not worth it and I already washed them so oh well...buyer beware.
I'm a size 11 male shoe. My Wife is a size 8 female shoe. These are the only no show socks we buy. We can both wear these socks comfortably. I like how the top of the sock is seamless as opposed to a rigid line/seem at the bridge of your foot. Other socks will create a indentation on the bridge of my foot. These do not.
I bought these for my husband. He just recently got some Stance socks for Christmas and liked them. Anyways, he wore the black pair the other day to work. He sits at a desk all day. He came home, took off his shoes, and there was a huge hole on the bottom. For the price of these socks, they should not be getting holes in them, especially on the first wear!
