    :confused:I consider myself to be a reasonably intelligent person, and am generally able to handle most things. :unsure: Unfortunately, I have come upon a problem that I have been unable to solve. :help: I generally wear slacks and a nice blouse/sweater to work. When wearing slacks, I tend to wear matching socks, and flat shoes (either black or brown). Here's the problem: my socks won't stay put! :eek: They are constantly slipping down into my shoes, and I can't find a way to stop it! I am forever reaching down into my shoes and pulling my socks up -- an activity that definitely does NOT look very professional!:woot: I would appreciate any solutions y'all could offer, because I am sick of it!:eek:

    Simple solution. Buy a different brand of socks. I had the same problem when I bought all my socks at Payless. I love those socks, but they slipped. I switched to a different brand at Walmart (faded glory I think) and that problem stopped.

    ROFL, cutNglue! These came from Walmart! They are the "super soft" thin socks that fold down at the ankle, and I love them except for this huge irritation!

    Rubber bands! Put them around the sock and fold over. That's what I always did with my knee socks when I was growing up.

    You know how most students will come up to you saying a certain kid said a bad word...then the word turns out to be 'stupid'. I should have clarified.

    Thank you all for your suggestions & commentary. I think I will try the insoles, but not the rubber bands (I'm diabetic -- we have enough circulatory problems as it is!). It is truly an irksome problem, and I'll let y'all know how it is resolved.

    They have those rubbery things that you stick on the inside heel of the shoe to keep the heel from slipping. They might also work to keep socks from slipping.

    Yup. Either heel inserts or insoles should do the job, I bet.

    It's the shoes, I think.

    Probably it is the shoes, yes, but inserts or insoles are generally cheaper than new shoes.

    uhhh....new socks? ;)
    boys socks? I live in the boy's dept. stuff fits, lasts longer
    sweaty feet? -foot powder
    wrong type of socks...dress socks when you need crew

    socks that slouch, like bra straps that slide, and undies that cause wedges become dunk shots in my trash can!

    if they don't fit..get rid of them! you will never be comfortable! test them out in the store. walk around with one on up and down a few aisles. if the start sliding when you get home, return them...and try another brand.

    if this doesn't work..try support hose.

    don't you mean rubberbands??

    didn't you wear 'em with your sweatsocks??

    of course, we wanted them to slouch..made our legs look big. ;)

    then again ...there's always tights!
