SmartKnitKIDS Seamless Sock Review

Do your children have a hard time putting on their socks?  Do they complain about the seams or that they bunch up when they try to put their shoes on making the whole getting dressed process a hassle?

Recently I was introduced to SmartKnitKIDS.  They offer patented seamless socks for little feet.  The socks came about because a mom like us was tired of the hassle she had trying to get her child (who hated the seams) to wear socks.

I let Emily try a pair on along with her sister.  The socks are snugger than regular socks and they don't fall down her little legs.  Of course since she is used to them bunching she ended up pulling them down when she got dressed even though I explained to her that her socks really are not supposed to do that. 

If your little one likes to put their socks on with the bottom (where the heel is) on top as my daughter does and refuses to let you turn them around, then the no heel design makes them handy to have in their drawer.  The no heel design also means they can get more wear out of them as they grow.

The SmartKnit KIDS socks also do not have elastic at the top but rather what they call a non-binding Halo Top to keep little legs from getting red from tight elastic that pinches.   The  material also wicks moisture away from your little one's feet to keep their feet drier and stink-free. 

Most importantly, Emily seems comfortable in them.  If Emily can keep her socks on, then that is a good sign since she usually prefers to run barefoot. 

You can read more about SmartKnits at their website.   The children's socks come in five colors: white, black, navy, pink, and purple.  I do wish they had more colors.  There are also three styles: ankle, crew, and knee-high. They also have crew socks for older kids (yes, mom that includes you) which come in black and white.

SmartKnit can also be found on Twitter and Facebook.  Right now they have a special.  If you place an order through Therawear (one of their online retailers), you can save an extra 20% on the socks.  If you buy them and you and your little ones like them, send SmartKnitKIDS your story.  You will recieve a $5 coupon for Therawear.com and then be entered into a monthly drawing to win $50 and an ant farm.

I did recieve three pairs of the SmartKnitKIDS socks in order to facilitate this review.  All opinions are my own.  No other compensation was or will be recieved.

I love no-heel socks! You're right in that you get better mileage out of them. :)
