Recommended socks for Sperry Boat Shoes

Any recommended socks? OR do people just wear these with their bare feet? Or do the wear special socks that still gives the impression that they're not wearing any socks?

I usually alternate between no socks and the "special socks" you mentioned that are really quite common, and colloquially referred to as "no-shows."

Can these "no-shows" socks be purchased somewhere? Or is that a trick answer of yours lol.

I read online that wearing these without any socks is bad for your feet? I.e. the leather material, or it'll make your feet sweat more often, etc. More chances of blisters too.

I wouldn't want to do too much walking without socks, or if it's extremely hot out, etc. But for casual wear, driving, etc I have never had any problems with my feet without socks. Definitely "cleaner" with socks, though.

You can buy no-shows anywhere. Quick Amazon search revealed lots of options.

I bought some no-show socks from Winners awhile ago. It's annoying when the elastic starts getting loose and then the heel starts slipping off while you walk... I know they usually have a piece of rubber on the inside of the sock to help "stick" against your ankle, but it wasn't very reliable. Or maybe I just got crappy ones...

Some boat shoes are really low cut and show a lot of the top of your foot. OP may want to go even lower with the no show socks. Like these:

Not recommending these specifically, just picture for reference.

Some shoes have no-show socks that are made to fit their shoes and not show - allbirds is one. I tried my allbirds pair with another similar shoe and they showed, but not with the allbirds. Perhaps ask where you bought the shoes.

I have Smartwool no-show socks that slip down, even with the gripper on the heel. What an expensive fail of a product!
