The secret’s out…I am a sock fiend!

The only thing I have more of, than leggings, are socks! I collect socks when I travel. To me, they’re like souvenirs that remind me of a place and time in my life.

My socks are always getting holes in them so I figured it’d be a safe bet to always stock up on socks because they eventually wear out.

I then discovered workout socks. They’re a game changer and have caused me to rethink and re-approach my sock obsession.

Workout socks are higher quality and it takes a lot of wear and tear to actually wear them out. I’ve had some workout socks for over 4 years now and they fit and perform like new.

We love durable socks that can be hidden underneath our shoes. Our top workout sock picks below are typically “invisible” and durable. We also prefer socks that do not slip off or make our feet feel hot.

With those factors in mind, here is our list of top picks for workout socks. 

Best Workout Socks

#1 Stance Invisible Sock

Stance No Show Socks

The Stance Invisible sock resembles a slipper and is very lightweight and slim, making it perfect for travel and daily wear.

The socks have a rubber backing that allows the sock to stay put. I love wearing them with my APL Bliss sneakers. It’s like they were a match made in sock heaven.
