A Sock could be just a piece of fabric that we need when wearing our favorite sneakers. But some sneakers—especially the translucent kind—have reshaped the way we should consider socks, as see-through sneakers have become a fashion-forward idea. Just as the eyes are the window to the soul, these translucent sneakers are the window to your style. 

We’ve curated the best socks and sneakers combinations to make sure you stand out and look good in all the right ways.

The Comme des Garçons x Nike SB Dunk High released in 2016 before the hype of the SB Dunks resurfaced. The shoe is a must-have, with the SB Dunk becoming a staple in fashion and streetwear. What better way to showcase the silhouette than with some punk influence in Andy Warhol’s contemporary skull socks. Not only do the socks provide a lot of color, but the combination also emphasizes the importance of fashion, sneakers and art with some of the most influential brands and artists of all time.

The Nike React 87 features Nike’s revolutionary React technology that has a memory foam-like component that molds to the shape of your foot while adding an extra hop to your step, as the technology was designed to help you spring off in the shoe. Standing out with your kicks and socks is key to staying fresh this fall. With a translucent upper, specifically focused on the tongue and toe box, these NBA Stance socks are a must for the sake of comfort and style. The color coordination is subtle and will raise people’s eyebrows in the right direction.

The Dior B23 High “Dior Oblique” is the latest shoe to rise from the high fashion world into sneaker culture within the past few months. The overbranded Dior logo found across the upper is aesthetically designed well, and the shoe’s Converse-like design provides an elevated look to this all-time classic. The John Elliot tie-dye sock goes great with this shoe. The tie-dye is subtle, providing the perfect amount of color to the all-white sneakers. It also keeps up with the high-end fashion legacy that is Dior, as John Elliott is a staple name within the industry.

The John Elliott x Nike LeBron “Tulip Pink” is a combination of hype, comfort and fashion. The shoe sits on top of an exposed Air Max unit with a suede collar, leather inner lining, a translucent toe box and an embroidered Swoosh. The different tones of pink create a sneaker that is not only loud and vibrant but also crafted like a true piece of art. The all-white Nike sock combo makes sure that the emphasis is on the sneakers. We recommend doubling up on the socks and having both Swooshes be directly under one another for a fire look.

The OFF-WHITE x Converse Chuck Taylor All-Star 70 might be the most underrated shoe from Virgil Abloh’s original “The Ten” collection with Nike. With its ice blue bottom and all-white upper, any sock is a great one to wear with this sneaker. The Stüssy tie-dye sock’s fall tones are great. In addition, Stüssy is making a name for itself in the streetwear game with more high-quality pieces in their last few drops. Don’t sleep on them or these socks.

NikeLab Zoom Fly SP 'Oreo' / GOAT

Stance 'Scream' Socks / Stance

The Nike Zoom Fly SP is the latest “trainer turned lifestyle” shoe from Nike that does not disappoint. From the Nike Flyknit Trainer to the Zoom Fly, Nike emphasizes the importance of keeping you fresh on your feet while not sacrificing technological features. The Zoom Fly SP was crafted with a carbon-fiber plate located in the midsole as the running shoe is designed to propel you with less effort. The purple “Scream” socks from Stance are a must with this sneaker, as it draws on the white from the shoe, while still being a fire pair on its own merit.
