Note from Collin:

Do you have a product you love? We definitely have many favorite products here on the Hip2Save Team, and thought it would be FUN to share some of them with you! I personally love product recommendations and I’ve also had a few requests from readers, so I have asked each member of the team to think of products they love (cosmetics, kitchen gadgets etc.) and to write up a post that will be shared here every Tuesday. Angie, my sidekick, is sharing one of her favorites today…

Hey all! It’s Angie, one of Collin’s sidekicks!

Anyone like cold, stinky and blistered feet?! Not me!

For years, and all in the name of fashion, I would wear my flats, heels and sneakers without socks. Wearing socks and having them be seen was a major fashion faux pas (reminds me of the Michael Jackson “Thriller” days). And of course, I would end up with stinky, cold feet and blisters galore!

In steps… LINER SOCKS (and NO judging my ugly feet 😃)! Oh, these were going to be wonderful! Finally, something to cover my feet a little bit and provide some protection. Or, so I thought. It didn’t take but once for me to realize that these liner socks (or at least the ones I bought) weren’t going to do much for my problems. The area where I always get a blister (my Achilles tendon), still continued to get blisters as the liner socks just didn’t stay in place. They often slipped completely off my heel.

Then in May of 2015, a reader tipped us off to a giveaway for Keysocks and I snagged a pair! And, have been forever grateful that I did! Keysocks are a knee-high sock in which there is a no-show hole, on the top of your foot and a toe cover. These socks are awesome! And although, I have only tried and own the classic version of Keysocks, they now have a Barely There Nylon and a Winter Warm style, that I am wanting to try!

My blisters disappeared as my Achilles tendon was no longer rubbed raw – it was constantly covered as these socks can’t go anywhere. And, my shoes no longer got stinky as I had socks on and wasn’t barefoot. Plus, my feet are no longer cold – if I choose to wear flats in the winter time, I can and my feet won’t hate me for it.

Any drawbacks to these most amazing socks??

Well, maybe just one… Keysocks have a key embroidered just above the ankle on the back side (your Achilles tendon area). Depending on the length of pants or skirt that you are wearing, you may see this key. To some, this may be annoying but it hasn’t really ever bothered me, I am just grateful to not have stinky blistered feet!

      You’re welcome! Hopefully you like them as much as I do!

  3. TraceyR

    Wonder if you could color that key in with a black Sharpie?? (That’s what I do for a couple of bleach spots on my black yoga pants!!) I think my daughter would love these; will have to get her a pair! Thanks for the info.

    • Angie (Sweet Sidekick)

      That’s a great idea! 🙂

  4. Kristy

    I have a tan pair of key socks and they don’t have an embroidered key 🤔 I do love my key socks though. They keep my feet/legs warm in cooler weather but still give the appearance that I’m not wearing socks.

    • Angie (Sweet Sidekick)

      Gosh, I wonder if only the black have the key as that’s the only color I own? SO glad you like them as much as I do! They are awesome!

  5. Jennifer Callahan

    Thanks! I ordered the mix and match 4/$35 plus 1 classic for a total of $36 after the 20% off code (upon signing up for email newsletters). Wish they would come up with something to wear with shorts too!

    • Angie (Sweet Sidekick)

      That would be amazing if they could come up with something to wear with shorts!

  6. Darcie

    If you sign up for their emails it says you will get 20% off. I love all these Hip2Save fave products, just wish the posts would also include how to get a discount on them!

  7. JA

    I always wondered how people could wear shoes without socks. If I do i end up pulling the whole liner out when I take them off. These look great!

    • Angie (Sweet Sidekick)

      They are great!

  8. Jessica

    What about when that moment comes? Lol ummm hey girl what the heck are those?!!!!

    • Angie (Sweet Sidekick)

      LOL – 😂

    • VaNeSteR

      Ahhhhhahahahahahaha

  9. Layla

    I’ve been wearing key socks for the past month. They are amazing! No more dealing with sick liners that keep sliding off

    • Angie (Sweet Sidekick)

      YAY! So glad you like them too! They are totally amazing!

    I used to wear my Sperry boat shoes without socks–MAN, they stunk! Then I found liner socks. I LOVE them! And I’m so thankful that I bought a TON of them at once because I’ve never been able to find that particular brand again. I live near an Acmy McCrary factory, and they do sales of surplus items to the public. It had to have been like 8 years ago when I went to one of their sales and they had liner socks in a three-pack for less than $1! I probably bought 10 packs having never tried the brand before. BUT THEY WORK! Mine have a clear pad on the inside that clings to my heel so the socks don’t fall off.

    I got some no show 2pk socks at lane bryant- they are sooooo cute! One pair is lacy and the other is solid- black or neutral. And they stay on!!!!!!! I get them for free using the $10 mobile coupon. Usually no show socks slip off my feet but these really stay. I love them! Even my 5yo daughter said she wanted some😜

  12. Mel

    I got a black pair from the free giveaway and LOVE them. Mine doesn’t have the key embroidered on the back like yours though 😉

    • Angie (Sweet Sidekick)

      Yay! So glad you like them!

  13. Jessi

    How do you wear these with skirts? Wouldn’t it be super obvious? It looks like they’re great with jeans or pants!

  14. Laura

    I think these look kinda ridiculous but I see I am in the minority. I get cold ankles so no socks only works in the summer. I do use liners that really work so I am grateful for that. No socks is just yucky all the way around. Better to wear sandals if you ask me.

  15. Sheila

    I last be the nike sock liners, they are great.

  16. Lolli

    If you are just worried about stinky feet with flats in the summer, spray deodorant or dry shampoo on your feet or in your shoes, it works great. You can use stick deodorant but the spray dries better.

  17. AnnieL.

    I have used sock liners from Payless for about 10 years. They have super cute summer designs that I love to buy and stay on because they are tight on my feet. I never go sockless in any kind of shoe, never have just not for me.

  18. patricia

    I have the Loft no show socks and they stay put. Also the smartwool no show socks and love the fact that the sweat dries out faster than all cotton.
