Me too Lluxi, I just love my Sketchers! I'd stick them in the wash if they got smelly. I haven't tried wearing them with or without cotton sox, only nylon 'no sees' which do make the 'no sees' smelly! When I buy a white or black Sketchers just for my morning walks, I'll try & wear them without sox, which I would rather do anyway. I wear them every day I go out wearing my dresses. So good!
No for me too. my feet stick to the shoes without some sort of foot covering! Bare feet can lift the inner soles and stick to the bottom of the feet, also not a nice feeling without socks and can produce blisters etc! There are so many various no show types, thin and thick around that it can give the illusion of no socks. Footwear fit better with a "sock" and do protect the feet.
I have lots & lots of sox. I can't wear my lace up walkers without sox. When my Sketchers 'joggers' wear out ( 1'd bought 3prs of plain white ones) I'll buy extra non lace up Sketchers for walking in, & wear 'no see' sox with them. I wish those sox were cotton & not nylon.
Yesterday I tried wearing my Skechers without 'sockettes' & they were very ok during most of my 3k walk, but by the time I got home, I had a blister on the side of 1 of my toes! No, I won't be trying that again! Ouch!
I have to wear no-see sockettes with my runners, walkers or whatevers. However, I don't think you are supposed to wear sockettes with "sports" shoes. I was told they have special lining in them.
Biut I get blisters and my feet sweat without socks.
