Back to School with the Perfect Socks: SmartKnitKIDS Review and Giveaway (Ends 9/30) CLOSED

Thursday, September 16, 2010 Posted by Dina N

Over the years, I have bought tons of socks for my family. I love walking, and between that and my husband's workouts at the gym, we go through a lot of socks. Until I had my first child, I thought kids' socks are all the same - cute cottony little things that keep their little feet warm, and one of each pair always seems to magically walk away, even before the child is mobile.

I quickly discovered that not all socks are created equal. Some shrink and lose shape after a couple of washes. Others never stay on those kicking little feet. My quest for the perfect sock - as mundane as it may sound to most people - led me through a long list of brand names, store brands, and materials. I thought I'd seen it all in sockland, and then I found SmartKnitKIDS.

SmartKnitKIDS make seamless sensitivity socks for kids and adults. I received samples of both, and must say I am very impressed! The socks are knit the same way a caterpillar spins its cocoon, starting at the toe and spinning up towards the ankle. As soon as I put on my pair of white SmartKnitBigKIDS socks, my feet landed smack in the middle of sock heaven. These socks are not just seamless, soft and utterly comfortable. They stay put, look great, and have no heel - so they fit perfectly. There are no elastic bands to irritate my skin - that happens a lot, especially in the summer heat. Besides, these socks wick moisture away and come with antimicrobial benefits that help prevent odors. Finally, I found the perfect socks for me.

My daughter tried the SmartKnitKIDS crew socks, and she loved them! After a long day of play, these socks never budged. She says these are her favorite socks now, and wants to wear them every day. They are great for school, too - even for schools with a dress code because the socks come in white, black and navy, plus the cute shades of pink and purple. SmartKnitKIDS socks for children are available as ankle and knee-highs, as well.

Right now, you can stock up on all these fabulous socks from SmartKnitKids and save 20% here.

    I hate socks with big thick seam's They hurt your feet. I would love to win these. They would not hurt.

  2. rosie said...

    I'd pick them all, they look and seem very comfy, and since my daughter who has autism needs to wear leg braces, I try and find her socks that will be comfy for her

  3. mom said...

    I'm already following them on Facebook. I'd love to get an extra large ankle pair in white.
    thanks for the chance

    Six months ago I found out my 2 yr old is Autistic. Before then I wondered why he hated his socks. Now I know why. It would be nice to win this so I can give him what he needs. I can't afford the seemless socks so I would choose them all.
