Guide to Going Sockless this Summer!
by Sunny Rattanpal on Mar 15, 2019
With the sun heating the pavement and the afternoons turning a bit warmer, the idea of pulling socks up your sweaty ankles is quite gruesome. As soon as it will be summer, decking up sockless will give you all the freedom *feels* – slide into the shoes, roll up your sleeves and feel the breeze!
Also, straying right into the runway trends, men are showing a lot of ankle this summer – as it is the comfiest way to dress down a suit. And since the trend of swapping socks for skin has become in line with the rise in mercury, many have been calling peak-mankle on the trend. But before you chuck those socks already, the specifics of how to do it are still confusing. And if you’re not there yet, don’t fret – here are a few tips from Voga-Now for the right moves to nail the look without scarifying foot comfort.
1. Choose the right shoe.
You’re not wearing open-toed shoes. (Chuck those socks even as an option, if you are.)
Sliding into the shoes with the lowest ankle line possible will always get you there in style – that’s why loafers and slip-ons are the talk of summer season. They’re summery yet sensible – offering your ankles see the light of the day without making your feet clammy.
2. Think about material.
If the lightweight shoes don’t help too much, re-consider your footwear material. A flexible material like supple leather always feels better than a stiff one and perforated leather will give a breathing space to your toes. Step into more casual options with the classic canvas sneakers and low-cut moccasins in soft leather as they are a fair game as long as it blends with the rest of your look.
If the idea of going sockless with actually wearing socks (no-show, of course) does not impress you, then these shoes will sure make you master the art of going sockless.

These not only keep your feet from the sweaty insoles but also create a grip for your feet with back straps. As light as feather, you can definitely ditch the troublesome shoes for this one.
