Women's (1 pk) Ultra Low No-Show Socks
It does slip off
I bought both offered sizes of this product (the regular one for adult sizes 4-10 and the XL "extended size" for adult sizes 10-12) to test which one would be best for me. My shoe size is 5 regular, but this is my first time wearing such no-show socks (for dress heels); and I understand that the sizing of these kinds of socks should be treated like pantyhose: your normal sizing methods might not work. So....
The size 4-10 socks look better--as in it virtually is no-show--and they are very comfortable/ideal for heels that show off the top of the feet. Unfortunately, by being so low cut (and small, resulting in being a bit binding on the toes), the sock starts to slip off the heel into the shoe. (If it matters at all, that was about an inch of heel to slip off.) This happens mostly after extensive walking, and it's barely noticeable (at least during the few paces I experimented). Best worn for show or for those who have smaller feet. Strange that for sizes 4-10, it felt like the material was being stretched close to its limits (or maybe it's supposed to fit like that?).
I would rather recommend the extended size 10-12. It isn't as low cut, but at least that means it's less likely to slip off! Despite being a bit bigger, the 10-12 socks don't really stick out more than the size 4-10. Try finding a color that matches closest to the shoe(s) you'll be wearing. The color options are very versatile, and it's such a small detail in an outfit I doubt anyone would be staring at your feet.

Great Socks! To keep them on there's a trick.
I have purchased several pairs of these socks and initially I encountered the same issue that others have been experiencing... Socks slipping off the heel. After lots of frustration, I was about to trash these puppies, but I discovered the problem was not the socks, but me! The trick to keeping these on is ensuring that your feet are moisturized. I found that massaging a little vaseline (not just lotion) on my foot and heel keeps these in place all day. Plus I have super soft feet now to boot! Love these things :)

All I hate about it is that it slips off really easily. These were my first pair of low socks, so I thought that this was normal, obviously not.

A new batch with redesign..
I had bought a couple of pairs of these before (I think from Payless) and they had some sort of glue or rubber substance on the back. It helped them stay on.
I recently bought some and just wore a pair yesterday and they kept slipping off. I still have the receipt and now I wonder if the ones they sell online are different than the ones in the store. I hope they're different and have the rubber spot on the back.
That would make them stay on and not have to be adjusted after a short walk.

Love 'em or Hate 'em
I actually love no show socks. They stay on my feet fine in most of my shoes and they really make them a lot more comfortable. I do have a pair or two of shoes that seem to pull them off my heels, but they stay on fine in the majority of my flats and heels. I've worn these with my flats for 3 years and I love them. I do notice that they stay on better if you wash them before and after wearing them... I think the dryer tightens the elastic back up a bit. I wear a size 9.5 and I buy the 'extended size's. The regular ones run pretty small. I think they could be a little less expensive... maybe 3 for $5 instead of 2 for $5... ? I think it's pretty much a black and white matter... you either love them, or hate them. Either way, it's worth a try!

good concept, poor deliver
I have to agree with the other reviewer. I was so excited to get these but they just don't work. They don't stay in place, constantly sliding off the heel. Perhaps it's the fabric, or possibly the design but needs to be taken back to the drawing table. I bought 4 pairs and will be returing the 3 I haven't worn, so disappointed......
