The slides and socks trend that everyone hated is now a fashion style. Some still hate them but in this case, socks do more than cover your feet. For slippery slides, socks can keep them from slipping.
They also cover the toes and protect the heel of your feet. And if you are not feeling like shoes, slides and socks are great to cover your feet and still have footwear on. I could give you more reasons but first I will give you the 10 best socks to pair your slides with.

Men’s running cotton socks
If you find any pair of socks that are made of 100% pure cotton, like these, don’t take them for granted. They are difficult to find especially with these features. These running socks will be perfect for your slides. They are lightweight and medium thin.
That means you don’t have to worry about stuffing your feet through your slides, it will be like you aren’t even wearing them. Another feature is it absorbs sweat. Slides are not breathable and so after wearing them for hours, your feet will sweat and be irritated.
With these socks, the sweat is absorbed and your feet won’t sweat and/or smell. Aside from that, they are seamless. No annoying seams to tickle your toes.
There is a band at the top of the socks that is a bit loose so you can wear and take them off freely. It is the only part of these lovely socks that are not cotton.
Good enough right? For sizing, it runs from 6 to 9 for men and 7 to 10 for women. And no matter your gender or size, you will get them in a pack of seven. I’m sure you want this now.
- Moisture absorbing
- They can be machine washed
INTRIGUE Sheer Ankle Socks
And here we have the nylon socks. At first, you think they would be the complete opposite of cotton socks. Guess what? You are wrong! INTRIGUE Sheer Ankle Socks are great. These nylon socks are mostly see-through. This feature makes them breathable.
They are made of 90% of nylon material and 10% of elastane. The nylon material may not be as comfortable as cotton socks but they are way more durable.
With a reinforced toe and a single seam, they won’t rip apart easily. The elastane makes it stretchy. This way it can fit the shape of your feet without causing discomfort.
These shoes prevent slipping and this is important because if you wear slides regularly, you will know they tend to be slippery or slip off your foot even if you are walking forward.
Well, these socks put an end to that. And if you think 7 pairs at once is great, how about 8? That’s right, coming in a pack of 8. And sizing? No need. One size fits all.
- Reinforced toe
- One size fits all
- Not as comfortable as regular socks
- Very thin
Bamboo Fiber Split Toe Socks
Made of 65% bamboo fiber, 10% yarn (silk), and 25% cotton, these split-toe socks are soft, comfortable, and thermoregulating. Fun fact, bamboo fiber (and I mean clothing) is very good for the skin.
You are sure that this fabric will absorb moisture, deodorize, and keep your feet warm and toasty. The bamboo fiber also soothes the skin and you do not need to fear any type of skin breakouts while wearing them.
These split-toe socks separate your big toe from the other four. This is very good for people who have feet that get irritated easily. They are also good if you want to wear them with flip flops or if your slides have a toe post like slippers do.
With a length of 11.1 inches (28 cm) and a width of 3.35 inches (8.5 cm), these socks come in a pack of three starring white, black and gray socks.
They come in a range of sizes, each converted to US, UK, and European measurements. The band is elastic and they end just above your calves. Want a pair?

It gives your feet a kind of arch support and fitting. They are also moisture-wicking and after hours of basketball or football or whatever you do that will make your feet sweat, you will still have dry feet.
It is cushioned for comfort and it will reduce the impact of your movement on your feet. Another thing I love about them is their durability.
If you play sports, although you may not play them in slides (a few sports can be played casually in them), you will find these the right part for you.
They come in a pack of 6, each with a tiny Adidas logo. So what do you think?
