Pro Mountain No Show Socks
Product Review Summary
Pro Mountain's No Show Sock is the closest thing I've found to the perfect fit. It checks off every single major criteria of mine for a sock, and is a pure delight to wear. I stand taller, smile wider, and carry myself with more confidence the minute my foot is enveloped in its supple contoured goodness. It's a beautiful thing. You want these on your feet...trust me you do.

The search for the perfect sock has been a lifelong journey of mine. Filled with many highs, lows, and entirely too many slipping heels…I’m delighted to report that my journey, for now, has come to an end. Of course I will always be looking to see who else is innovating, and to explore if someone improves upon the milestone of engineering that Pro Mountain has pulled off here. But for now…for the first time, my heart has found peace knowing that the sock on my foot is one that is not lacking a single key component. It’s the closest thing I’ve found to the perfect sock. And it’s a beauty to behold.

What Is It?

I’m sure everyone, at some point in their lives, has had a pair of socks that reined supreme in their lineup. You wear them when you need good luck, or when you know your outfit is on point, or when you need a boost of self-confidence. That pair of socks that you know will perform reliability for you no matter the situations you put them in. They fit great, they look great. Now…imagine for a moment, a world in which every pair of socks that you owned were that good. This world exists right now, friend. You need only to accept the invitation.

Pro Mountain has done a number of fundamental things right with their no-show socks. I’ll dig into the individual features I like best in the “5 Fav Features” section below.

One of the reasons, aside from specific features, that these socks have won out over all the others that I’ve tried is how they don’t go extreme with the “no-show”. I’ve tried several socks where the opening is practically as large as the sock itself. I don’t like the way that looks when I take my shoes off. When I’m at someone’s house or something, I just prefer not to have the whole top of my foot showing while still wearing socks. Just looks off to me. Pro Mountain cut off the top of their socks juuust below the line where most low-cut shoes sit. I wear Cole Haan shoes which are about as low cut as most average casual shoes come…and these socks don’t show with any of them. However they still cover most of the top of my foot, making them appear like normal socks when my shoes are off. Best of both worlds!

It is worth noting that these socks won’t be right for everyone. Let me remind you that this product list is just that…my product list. I’m only here to share with you what has worked for me. Everyone has their own unique use cases and needs. Clothing is a great example, as it introduces the complexity of “fit” into the mix. The people who will find this review helpful are, primarily, those of you who like the look of no socks, and that tend to wear low-top shoes. I have no idea if Pro Mountain makes other types of socks, but if you don’t like no-show and are looking for a good pair of socks I’d suggest poking around their Amazon store to see if they make what you’re interested in!

5 Fav Features

  • Non-Slip Heel
    • This is what sets Pro Mountain’s socks apart. Go ahead, call me a liar…but I swear to you, I have never had a heel slip on me while wearing these socks. Never once! The trick is a small strip of grip that they place on the inside of the lining right beneath your achilles tendon. It’s not so sticky as to pull or snag, but it has plenty of grip to ensure you never have to walk around on a balled up sock ever again. Rejoice!
  • Contoured Fit
    • This is purely preference, but I really like when a sock is tightly fitted around my arch. I just like the way it feels. I have some running socks that do this to the extreme, and although they’re perfect for their specialized application, they’re super hard to put on and not what I would want in an everyday sock. Pro Mountain strikes the perfect balance for me. They are countered at the arch but not so much as to make them difficult to put on or take off.
  • Low Profile
    • All of the casual shoes I wear are low-cut, and these socks don’t on any of them. They may show in boat shoes, or more extreme cases like that…but by-in-large they’ll be a true no-show option.
  • Durable
    • The main areas I see socks going bad is when they pill, when they fray, and when they develop holes prematurely. I haven’t experienced any of these issues with Pro Mountain. I have 1 pair for each day of the week, and I expect I’ll get between 3-4 years of solid everyday use out of them.
  • Small Logo
    • One of my pet peeves with socks is when the company slaps their logo super big across them. I don’t want to be a walking advertisement! Pro Mountain places two “M” logos tastefully on the bottom of the socks that aren’t visible even with shoes off. I definitely appreciate that.

Summary

  • Pros
    • No more heel slipping! This alone makes these socks worth their weight in gold.
    • They offer 4 different color options for whatever your shoe situation is.
    • They have a countered fit that leaves your arch feeling snuggly supported.
  • Cons
    • They are just slightly thicker than I would prefer. It’s never been an actual issue with any shoe I’ve worn with them. But I live in Florida, and it’s hot, and if I had my preference I’d make them like 10-20% thinner.
