Travel Fashion Girl readers LOVE Bombas no-show socks, but did you know they also have travel-friendly slippers and compression socks? I recently found out that Bombas has an entirely new collection of products, so I was eager to collaborate with them to learn more.


As a bonus, Bombas socks are a popular gift for travelers, too! Find out our favorite style below, and new customers can use code TRAVEL20 to get 20% off their first order!





Who is Bombas?


I first heard about Bombas socks from the readers, and after trying them out myself, I couldn’t believe how soft, comfy, and protected my feet felt! They are a sock and apparel brand that makes not just socks but t-shirts and underwear too.

For travelers, Bombas socks actively protect feet as you’re walking, as the company has also included important features like padding to protect feet against blisters or added special grips to the bottoms so there isn’t slippage.

Their socks have no seams either, which won’t rub against your foot and cause friction, and thus blisters or raw spots. This is why so many Travel Fashion Girl readers vote Bombas as some of the best socks for travel!

The company believes in making quality, comfortable clothing for everyone, which is why I also admire their mission. Socks are the #1 requested clothing item in homeless shelters; that’s why Bombas’ mission is to help combat that.


For every item purchased, one is donated to someone experiencing homelessness. To date, they’ve donated more than 1 million items on behalf of consumers.




Low-Cut No-Show Socks | Sizes S-L


No Show Socks


Bombas Low Cut No-Show Socks have been one of the most talked about products in the Travel Fashion Girl Facebook Group. So many readers rave about them and say that they’re the best no show socks for travel.

I wanted to check them out myself, so I ordered a variety of options a few years ago, and I soon started creating my own Bombas sock capsule collection. In addition to the Low Cut style, my favorite is the Cushioned No Show Socks.



Wool Blend House Sock | Sizes XS-L


Travel-Friendly Slippers


Slippers are some of the most popular holiday gifts, and Bombas has a few incredible styles that work perfectly for the traveler in your life. Two of our favorite travel styles include the Gripper Slipper and Wool Blend Gripper House Sock. Not only are these two items ultra-light and packable, but they’re also practical, too.

When traveling in cold weather, nothing’s more relaxing than taking off your well-worn travel shoes at the end of the day and slipping into some cozy soft socks. Whether you’re having a staycation in a cabin or exploring Europe’s Christmas Markets abroad, these are the perfect travel companion to keep your toes and feet warm.




Gripper Slippers | Sizes XS-L


Bombas Women’s Gripper Slippers


While described as more sock-like, these gripper slippers are pure comfort. The brushed lining is soft, and the silicone grips will keep you stable on floors.

These would be great travel companions, too, when you want to keep tootsies warm without buying a full-blown slipper.




Merino Wool Blend Roll-Top Socks | Sizes S-L


Merino Wool Blend Roll-Top Gripper House Socks


I loooove gripper house socks in winter! These are my favorite types of socks to wear at home, and they’re also perfectly packable slippers when on the go, too. I find gripper socks cozier than traditional slippers and live in these types of socks when the temperatures drop. Box these up and put them under my tree – they’re the perfect holiday gift for me!

I was super excited to test out the Bombas Merino Wool Blend Roll-Top Gripper House Socks.



Bombas Compression Socks | Sizes S-L


Compression Socks


When taking a long-haul flight or a road trip that’s more than 3 hours, leg swelling is a condition that can happen and be uncomfortable after landing. That’s why many travelers will wear compression socks when in the air, as they increase blood flow in the legs and reduce swelling, even in the ankle area.




Everyday Compression Socks (15-20mmHg) | Sizes S-L


Everyday Compression Socks


Bombas carry several compression sock styles that devotees swear by (and they make amazing gifts for the frequent fliers in your life!). If it’s your first time using compression socks or buying them as a gift for another traveler, we recommend starting with the Everyday Compression Socks, which offer medium-level support.

I usually pack them in my personal item and either change into them once I’m on the flight or put them on just before boarding. Other travelers may prefer to make them a part of their regular flight outfit so they don’t have to worry about trying to switch their socks in a tight airplane or airport bathroom.

Tip: Compression socks can be used even when you’re not flying, too! Some people have used them as regular socks for physical therapy, and in my case – I’ve used them to increase blood flow to my legs after long days on my feet.




Women’s Travel Compression Sock and Gripper Slippers


If you’re shopping for another traveler, Bombas has a wide range of holiday gifts, including gifts for kids. One of my favorite items is this Travel Gift Set featuring a pair of Compression Socks plus matching Gripper Slippers. This is the perfect combo!




Bombas Small Gift Box


And if you are planning on gifting a comfy pair or two (or four) of Bombas socks or slippers for the holidays, they also have a super cute gift box to match!


Shop Bombas and find out why our readers and I love this brand! And if you’re a new customer, save 20% off your first purchase with the code TRAVEL20.
