Silver Linings Review and Giveaway [CLOSED]

I love a pair of cute shoes (like many women do), but one thing I don't love is wearing tights or pantyhose.  I used to go sockless when I wore heels and I ended up with that undesirable sweaty-foot stickiness by the end of the day.  I don't wear heels as often as I used to--I've switched to flats--and I've since smartened up and bought those little footie socks to wear with them.  But then when I learned about Silver Linings by Chu Shu New York I thought they sounded really interesting.

Jennifer Chu created Silver Linings after noticing the damage and discoloration that moisture build-up can lead to on shoe interiors when going sockless.  These liners harness the power of silver to keep feet feeling fresh and absorb any unwanted odor.  They can be used in both flats and heels and last for about 2-3 weeks (or 10-15 uses, depending on how often you wear your shoes).

The back of the packaging explains that Silver Linings are infused with Agion silver, "an EPA-registered and environmentally friendly technology that inhibits growth of bacterial odor."  I wore my Silver Linings in my flats the past three days and they really do deliver on their promises.  I found them to be comparable to my footie socks in absorbing moisture, but much better at absorbing odor.  My feet didn't smell at all, nor did my shoes, which is obviously a welcome result!

Here's a photo of what the Silver Linings looked like inside of my flats.  The undersides are a rubber-like material, kind of what you would expect on the bottom of a shower mat, to keep them from sliding around (photo below).

Bottom Line: I've really enjoyed using my Silver Linings so far and I think they definitely are effective at absorbing moisture and odor.  If you're like me and you like going sockless (especially in the summertime!), I highly encourage you to check these out.

*Disclaimer: I received products to review from Chu Shu New York as a part of the BrandBacker program.  I was not monetarily compensated for this review and the honest opinions here are entirely my own.


  1. I would love to wear this with my black flats!

  2. These are very cool! I would love to try them out and if I don't win, I will definitely be using the coupon code! Thanks!

  3. These would be so perfect for my little black booties that I have. The little socks make it extremely painful to wear and bare foot makes my feet sweat. I might just try this out even if I don't win.

  4. Yay! Thank you! So excited for these!
