I’ve never considered myself much of a sock expert, but I’m in love with the seamless socks available for the entire family from SmartKnitKIDS. Boasting the slogan “No seams to bug ya” their children’s socks are superb for little ones with sensitivities to seams and bunching like my oldest daughter. Any parent of a sensitive child – both those officially diagnosed with sensory integration disorder (SID), and those who are easily bothered by textiles – knows the difficulties of convincing little ones to slip their tender tootsies into ‘bumpy’ socks. Tantrums, meltdowns. we’ve seen it all here at our house, but after trying on her first pair of SmartKnitKIDS socks my 6-year-old daughter told me, “Mommy, these are the best socks I’ve ever, ever worn in my entire life.” I tend to agree with her myself. That isn’t my daughter in the photo (it’s from the SmartKnitKIDS website), but it may as well be. She loves her new pink socks just as much as this little girl seems to!
Not only do the children’s socks live up to their claim of undetectable joinery in the toe, they also lack a heel which allows for very flexible sizing. I love it, one pair of socks can fit a wide range of children – they are so tiny when they arrive, yet are so stretchy that it’s mind boggling. My 3-year-old and six-year-old are wearing the same size of socks, they just hit them differently on the leg. Another huge bonus is the ability these socks have to cling to the leg. My six-year-old has also suffered from the incessant need to hike her socks up throughout the day – SmartKnitKIDS don’t let her down though – their halo technology is free from binding elastic (no pinching), but yet stays up better than any sock I’ve ever seen.
If that wasn’t enough (which it completely is in my books), these socks are made from high-tech ?bers that wick moisture away helping ensure a drier and more hygienic sock environment. They are also anti-microbial, inhibiting fungal odor-causing bacteria and come in a selection of fun colors and styles (knee, crew, ankle)! Wow.
With a wide variety of sizes available, the whole family can be outfitted in seamless socks! Our 1 year old received some adorable, tiny toddler-sized seamless socks that have cute cuffs, and I’ll NEVER buy another pair of traditional baby socks again. The ones that never fit right, the ones they grow out of in two months. With no heel, these little cuties will fit newborns up to 18 months easily!
The same company makes socks for adults as well! My husband and I got to try the ‘diabetic socks’ made with the same great seamless design,and non-binding top (though a comfy heel is built in). Now the diabetic comes in because there is no bunching or points of irritation in these socks. But you can wear them regardless of your health – they are our favourite socks now. One of my sisters routinely snips the elastic in the tops of her socks because they irritate her – even adults can be sensitive to pinching and seams, this is the ultimate solution sock.
My husband purposefully wore his to the zoo so that he could enjoy the comfort. When I mentioned I was getting ready to write this review he said, “They’re great socks, I wore mine to the zoo!” He’s impressed. I love the built-in anti-bacterial properties, and the fantastic ability of the over-the-calf style to stay up ALL day long. It’s nothing short of amazing – and incredibly comfy. The X-STATIC style (blue and black only) incorporates actual silver fibers to beef up the antibacterial action, and the crew socks are made of Coolmax to prevent odor and are offered in sporty white.
I don’t think we can ever go back to regular socks again, and if you suspect your family might feel the same way, all of SmartKnitKIDS socks are on sale for 20% off with free UPS shipping on orders over $65.00, so hurry over and stock up!
