why do my socks slip down in my shoes

Yes, I do. But whereas the other answer suggests to wear ankle or calf socks, I wear socks that go over the calf - to the knee. I tend to wear winter boots 2 sizes too large, and summer hiking boots are 1 size too large. What happens is the socks wear down, so, more movement occurs in the boots. This also happens with new boots, in that they eventually wear down and create more room. So, I add in a new insole or an extra pair of socks, and, wear socks that go over the calf. Wearing ankle socks almost always resulted in losing them in the shoe, so I avoid them altogether.


Maybe I'll try the banded ones for sneakers to see. If you gain weight - particularly as you gain girth in the calf - that will cause socks to wear out more as they lose elasticity. And if you lose weight, the socks are either too large, or, have lost their elasticity, and no longer hold. So, be sure to get new, or like-new socks for each hike.
September 09, 2017 How to prevent no show socks from slipping or sliding? What is the proper way to wear no show socks? How to get no show socks to stay up?


One of the most common complaints about no show socks is that they keep sliding down under the foot and into your shoe. This problem is especially common with mid or low cut no show socks. Slipping socks are extremely annoying and can easily ruin your day. We spent 6 months at the factory testing and perfecting the no show sock. Here are the 3 features we found that will guarantee a no slip design. #1: 5 Point Heel Stitch A deep heel pocket with a 5 point heel stitch is the single most important feature that will keep your socks from slipping.


Most no show socks use a Y stitch or a 3 point heel stitch which is simply not enough to keep the socks up. You may ask, why dont all no show socks use this stitch? Machines capable of knitting this technical stitch are more expensive and hard to find. P #2: Large Silicone Grip After the heel pocket, the second most important feature is the silicone grip. We determined the large, flat and circular heel grip to be the most effective. Some socks use three smaller strips which we found to be uncomfortable and provide less grip. #3: Elastic Arch Support Surprisingly, elastic arch support is not very common with lower cut no show socks.


In addition to being more comfortable, socks with arch support conform to your foot and leave no gap under the arch. This provides a snug and secure fit that further prevents sliding. There are many other features that go into creating a quality socks however these are the three most important features to prevent sliding.
