This Giveaway is Closed.And the winner is…. #12
Most parents have experienced a child’s frustration, at one point or another, over the way their socks “fit” or “feel”. In most cases, this is due to seams and the way they rub or put pressure on the child’s foot. Some kids are so sensitive to fabrics and the way they feel on their skin that it becomes a serious problem, not just with socks, but with all their clothing. Even if your child doesn’t experience severe sensory processing issues, they may still get “bugged” by their socks.
SmartKnitKIDS was born out of a mother’s need to help a frustrated child and her non-productive search for a truly seamless sock. The socks are made the way a caterpillar spins a cocoon, from the toe up, in a continuous circular motion, so no seams are created. The patented design for these super-soft socks is made not to wrinkle or bunch up. SmartKnitKIDS Socks are made with high-tech ﬁbers that wick moisture away helping control odor or “stinky feet”. Plus, they are designed with NO heel, helping them to hold their shape AND making it simple for even small children to put their socks on “straight”.
We had the opportunity to review two pair of SmartKnitKIDS socks with our eight-year-old daughter. She falls into that category of no serious sensory problems, but definitely does not like socks that don’t fit well or “bug” her. She was instantly in love when the socks arrived, because she loves pink. (We received both a white and pink pair.) I was instantly in love when she pulled them on, tied up her sneakers and headed out to play basketball without any complaining.
The socks are made from a thin fabric that feels very soft and molded itself to our daughter’s foot as she put the socks on. After washing them once, the socks returned to their original shape, did not show any “pilling” and did not shrink in size. Our daughter would like all her socks to be from SmartKnitKIDS, now. Her only wish was that they came in a short, “sport” sock style. She received the ankle style for this review and she promptly folded them over to make them shorter. This worked fine, since the socks have a non-binding Halo-top which holds them up, but doesn’t pinch or bind.
In smaller children’s sizes (up to Youth shoe size 2), the SmartKnitKIDS socks are available in three styles: ankle, crew or knee-high. For larger sizes, (up to Youth shoe size 5), they come in crew or knee-high and for Youth shoe size 5-8, they are available only in crew. The socks are available in white, black, purple, pink or navy which makes it easy to coordinate them with most clothing.
