Any recommendations?

Trainer socks I've had seem to either be too thick or they roll down under my heels...

Just want to wear my Converse with skirts and dresses when it's nice but bare feet in trainers just feel a bit ick

TIA!

Have you tried liquid baby talc? You get it in Boots and its great

I want short trainer liners too!
Talk doesn't cut it and I have small feet, my existing ones are to long.

I think I may have to become a child.

I've got puma ones from sports direct. Come in black or white. They don't roll down and are thin.

I think any sock showing looks a bit funny Shame about the talc it really works for me just massage in and it lasts all day but has to be the liquid one

Oh ick to this whole look o

I'll have a go with liquid talc, thanks.

Am wondering if some nude footsies would work too...

The DDs have puma ones, I will steal a pair.

This isn't about high fashion tory it's about practical footwear you can drive in, walk around in all day and drive home in the evening, when it's not warm enough for sandals.

Gap ones aren't too high

It's not a terrible look... I think this is perfectly nice for weekends and doing general stuff in bluebuddhablog.wordpress.com/2013/08/17/effortless-relaxed-style-converse-and-a-maxi-skirt/

TroyMcClure Sat 07-Jun-14 13:55:40

ah Maxi skirts, the refuge of the chunky thighed wink and * runs *

Next do really nice cotton footsies, with a little silicon tab to stop them slipping. They are totally hidden by trainers.

Yo Troy - fuck off the thread if you think fatties with a supposedly bad sense of style is beneath you.

It isn't by the way, bellend is far further down the list.

fuckinglondonballs Sat 07-Jun-14 14:14:05

Cointreau - thanks. I'll have a look!

I have Puma ones from Sports Direct too, although I have big feet.

Alternatively, I think Tesco do them in kids size 12.5 - 3.5

I have some nice trainer socks and lace footsies from primark that never roll down unlike others i've got elsewhere yeh you New Look
I wear them everyday walking the dog so i've throughly tested them. The puma socks from sports direct are great too.

Footsies vanish in this house.

DDs had black ones for 5 seconds.

NotALondoner Sat 07-Jun-14 16:53:33

What about getting some converse boots and using normal short socks? Would that be ok?

Fat Face have some nice 'not socks' as I call them at the moment. £8 for 2 pairs, so expensive, but they generally seem to stay up on me.

OwlCapone Sat 07-Jun-14 17:00:38

The best ones I've found are actually from Primark. Nice and thin and don't seem to roll down under my heels.

I bought some last week in Tesco - a selection of spots, stripes & plain in thin cotton - just what I was looking for to go under Converse-type pumps
