Socks that don't come any higher than the level of your trainers hence make it look like you're not wearing any with your trainers !!

They're sometimes known as secret socks too !!

They're for women and softies who want to
appear to not be wearing socks, but aren't
tough enough to go sockless.

Hint: You can still see them.
And they wear them with shorts! Stop it!

I suppose someone thinks that's a good idea ...less material - higher price

but don't the stinging nettles get you when you run through the grass

Nope they're called Wham! socks



BTW Going sockless makes your shoes/trainers smell after a while !! You probably can't smell it over your Garlic breath though eh

Re: Are 'Trainer Socks' The Work of Satan?

I'm not too proud to admit that I have been caught wear the odd trainer sockette... I know the other fine members of AO are none judgemental and that I will not be treated as an outcast for addmitting it.

However I have never and will never wear sandles or flip flops of any kind with or without trainer socks

Re: Are 'Trainer Socks' The Work of Satan?

I ws utterly opposed to them, but then the wife forced me to have some, and I now find them secretly comfortable.

Seriously though, I don't do wearing footwear without socks. If you wear socks with trainers and shorts then you have to push them right down, otherwise you look a *****. If you're pushing them right down anyway, why not just wear socks which are only that short in the first place?
