In Search of Stay-put Socks
I’ve always hated that feeling of my sock creeping down into my shoe. Some socks just seem prone to do that.
Like the pair of footies I’m wearing today. I bought them at Nordstrom’s so I could wear closed-toe shoes in warm weather without regular socks and without having my feet sweat all over the inside of my shoes.
Unfortunately I keep having to fish out the footies that are bunched up under the instep of my feet. That not only feels bad, but it defeats the purpose. It seems the little non-slip thing at the back of each footie doesn’t do a bit of good.
I just Googled to find out what’s available out there, to see if anyone had come up with a non-slip solution that works. I happened onto the Shanghai-based company Alibaba.com, which offers footies in a minimum order of 3,000. I don’t think I will be investing that heavily in any sort of footwear.
Has anyone out there solved what should be a relatively easy problem?
