I like the inside of the heel 'no slip' strips. The socks are very easy to put on and the back of the socks stay up. To me they are like a version of the little socks used at a footwear store for trying on shoes. The socks lay low on top and let my feet rub on the inside of my sneakers. They would be good to use with other types of shoes. I'm going to go back to my old style of 'no show' sport socks.
