If you’ve ever had to cope with the uncomfortable slipping of traditional no show socks such as footies and peds you’ll be no stranger to the difficulties they can present.
The alternative? Going ‘sock free’, which more often than not means pain, blistered heels and worst of all, very smelly shoes…
But all is not lost. A popular new line of knee length socks would appear to have the solution you’ve all been waiting for! This is where foot technology and fashion meets.
‘Keysocks Knee High No Show Socks’ have hit the market to great acclaim, promising women across the world the opportunity to ‘wear socks with your favourite flats, heels, Vans, Sperry’s or Toms without having to adjust every five minutes’.
This innovative patent-pending design takes origin from the traditional tights worn by millions of women each year, but with a few essential differences.
The main variation on the familiar design is a cut-out at the top of the foot that keeps sock fabric out of sight and allows women to wear a far wider range of footwear.
With the top of the foot exposed then it will be easier to add a nice piece of foot jewellery to compliment the look.
Meanwhile, the knee-high design, shorter than the regular waist high pantyhose design, is essential in holding socks up and cannot be seen under full-length trousers or jeans.
Keysocks: warm, dry and comfortable
The ‘Keysocks Knee High No Show Socks’ are made with a high-quality ‘Coolmax polyester’ that is designed to protect the feet and keep them free of the discomfort caused by rubbing and blistering.
A special moisture-wicking material is also used to keeping the feet cool and dry, helping to avoid problematic sweaty shoes and smelly feet!
This revolutionary new design is now available to purchase through Keysocks online Amazon store, retailing at just $10.99 US per pair.
Spark of inspiration
Keysocks are the brainchild of American entrepreneur and company founder Shelby Mckee. Her story leads us back to 2009 as she was getting dressed before attending an American football game on a cold Autumn afternoon.
Mckee wanted to wear flat shoes but with increasingly cold weather she soon recognised that she needed to wear ‘no show’ socks as traditional footies always fell off her feet or scrunched up, providing insufficient warmth and protection.
So, using just a pair of household scissors and a spark of inspiration, she cut a hole in her husband’s knee-high football socks and the idea of the ‘Keysock’ had been realised!
