Whether you prefer flats or heels, there’s one thing we all can agree on: The winter months can make it tough to rock your fave footwear for fear of frostbite. The fact is not every OOTD can be paired with over-the-knee boots. So when the day calls for next-level denim or the perfect pair of pants, how do you keep your feet from freezing without compromising your cute? The solution is obvs to just put on some no-show socks, right? Well, if you’ve ever worn those things, you know we’re talking about bunch.up.city. Luckily, someone finally came up with a better solution. For just $11, Keysocks cover your toes, the bottoms of your feet, calves and heels all in one nifty design. They also pull all the way up to your knee, so they stay put all day long. For reals. Here, four reasons why these are the new wardrobe workhorse you never knew you always needed.

1. Your shoes are stinky. As much as we love going sockless (even when it’s freezing outside), the after-effects can leave behind a funky odor. Keysocks are made with material to absorb sweat and odor, so you can get the no-socks look without worrying about the stink.

2. Blisters, be gone. Getting blisters from pretty pumps is the worst thing ever, amiright? Nothing annoys us more during the winter months than being forced to wear tights or sheer socks with our denim just to keep the shoes from rubbing. Luckily, Keysocks are designed to make wearing heels or flats painless, so no more painful blisters FTW.

3. You can wear them with pants. And no one will ever know… Keysocks leave your ankle pretty much exposed. So go ahead and wear your favorite pair of skinnies with those heels you love; the socks won’t show. So, so smart.

4. It’s cold out there. The creators of Keysocks thought of that too. There’s a thicker version of the socks with a heavier material for the colder months. You might be able to wear your favorite spring flats before June this year. YAS.
