Bare ankles are a surefire way to stay cooler in the summer months. While going sockless is certainly an option, sweaty feet can leave shoes smelling less than desirable. The smart alternative, of course, is no-show socks. But anyone who’s worn a pair knows how much they suck. Too much elastic and the sock pulls off the heel. Too little and it stretches — then slips off. If you want a sock that will stay hidden and on your foot, check out the No Show Sock from Arvin Goods.

Founded in 2016, the brand focuses on the most core items in your closet: socks and underwear. But unlike most other brands, Arvin Goods uses donated and upcycled materials to produce the fibers that later go into the products. This cuts down on freshwater use, CO2 emission and landfill waste. Arvin Goods socks are made from a blend of upcycled cotton and recycled polyester, which can be recycled by the brand when worn out. The brand’s sustainable mission doesn’t negatively affect the quality of its products in any way; in fact, I’ve found that Arvin Goods makes some of the best socks available.

For warmer months, the brand’s no-show sock is essential — and it actually works. It features a solid elastic cuff that doesn’t slip, regardless of the activity. For comfort, the socks feature a terry loop padded footbed and elastic support in the arch area. The best part, though? Each pair costs a cool $10.
