Review and giveaway (closed): SmartKnit Kids socks


Congrats to my winner: moushka
 
When I was a kid, I hated wearing socks because I didn't like the way the seams felt on my toes. They always seemed to be bunching up and I was constantly readjusting them.  How I wish SmartKnit Kids seamless sensitivity socks were around back then!  Here's some information on these cool new socks, from the company's website:
SmartKnitKIDS® patented seamless socks are perfect for children experiencing sensory processing differences, hypersensitivity or who simply can’t stand annoying seams! These super soft socks for sensitive little feet will not wrinkle or bunch and are proven to reduce irritation.
In addition to being seamless, the socks are form-fitting so that they don't wrinkle or bunch, they have a non-binding top, and have a no-heel design that keeps kids from outgrowing their socks too quickly. And the socks are made with a fabric that's antimicrobial and wicks away moisture to keep feet dry and control odor.

I was impressed by the socks when I took them out of the package. The fabric is soft and feels good to the touch. The fabric is sturdy, without being heavy or bulky. And the socks truly are as seamless as advertised! I put a pair of white socks on Ethan and pink socks on Vivian, and they both happily wore their socks all day with no complaints.  Neither kid is known for keeping anything on their feet for an extended period of time, so wearing the socks all day without trying to take them off was pretty unusual for them.

The kids and their great new socks

And I can actually vouch for the comfort of these socks myself! Even though I'm a grown adult, I have really small feet and frequently wear kids' sized shoes.  So when I tried on a pair of the size large socks, they actually fit me. There's that heel-less extended wearing design in play! I am really excited about this, since I still don't like the way the seams in my socks feel, especially when I'm out running. These are definitely the most comfortable socks I've ever owned and I look forward to many wearings.

Yep, that's my foot in my new SmartKnit Kids sock :)

SmartKnit Kids socks are available in ankle, crew or knee-high styles in sizes small to xx large, which corresponds to shoe sizes ranging from size 1 toddler to 5-8 girls/boys.  Visit the SmartKnit Kids website to purchase or to find out more about these fabulous socks.
