Yesterday shoes, today socks

So, socks. I have small feet for a grown woman - though now that my arches are falling, I now fit into a 6.5 to 7 instead of a 6. I'm being tempted by this place called Bombas Socks. Not because of my small feet, necessarily, but the first ad I saw, I liked that when you buy a pair of socks, they donate one to someone in need. I like those kinds of companies.

The second ad I saw this morning and I liked what I saw - saying that their no show socks won't slip off. I like this because along with my small feet, I have a hard time with flats because even though they'll feel good when I try them on and walk around the store, if I wear many of them with just hose/tights or with no socks, the backs of my heels are wimpy and always get torn up. I hate having to try to stick the gel heel protectors in the back of the shoes since they don't always stay put or even worse, hate having to try to keep bandaids on my heels to protect them. Oh and yes, I've tried the stuff you put on your heels or shoes to supposedly lessen friction. Sure, it lessens friction and then it's like wearing flip flops and my feet don't feel secure.

Soooo, anyone try these socks? I'm sorely tempted to try some. My regular socks seem to be getting worn and I need to replace some anyway.

I haven't, but I am looking forward to your report if you do.

I went ahead and had them send me the 20% offer. I may get some no show socks to try out since then I could actually wear some of the shoes that are sitting practically new in my closet (because they scraped the bejesus out of my ankle/heels) and not buy new ones.

Let me know what happens. :D

I went for it! Hang on to this link since it may give you 25% off

I forgot that I still had $43 in my PayPal account from ebates so I only had to toss in an extra $10 for six pairs of their socks. Got one pair of the no shows and five pairs of their calf length socks. Now I can toss out some worn socks once I get these. lol

And they come in SMALL for my dinky little feet! They also say they don't have the annoying seam across the toes.

I haven’t tried them, but a friend swears by Bombas. She had posted on Facebook asking for sock recommendations and a lot of people suggested them. I don’t know if she has worn that particular style but I think you made a good choice in trying them.

These socks look good too, had not heard of them before. Scraped, blistered heels and/or floppy shoes w. trying the bandaids and gels... don't miss that at all.
I still wear pantyhose or thigh high hose when I wear a dress or suit and my dress shoes so the shoes don't rub and torment me. (Weddings and funerals are the only 2 things now for us to wear dressier clothing) Being old and in the South, I can get away w. 'hose' for occasions ;p

I'm rather tempted to try them myself!
