I recently had the opportunity to review two pairs of socks from SmartKnitKIDS® patented seamless socks. My daughter has some sensory issues and her feet are definitely a hot topic so I was thrilled to have this opportunity. I've also discovered that many people, even if they don't have any sensory issues, don't like having to deal with the seams in socks. One of my girl friends has to turn socks inside out and that is only a temporary fix for her little one. In addition to the sensory issues my daughters feet are always hot. From the time she started school there has been a pick up routine. She gets in the car, buckles up and instantly sheds her shoes and socks. It doesn't matter what the weather is, those bad boys are coming off. The SmartKnitKids socks arrived and my daughter was more than happy to try them on. She the lack of a seam right away and started wiggling her toes in glee. The part that I liked is that the socks actually stayed on her feet- for several hours! That is most definitely a record! Actually there are all sorts of little "bonus" features to the SmartKnitKids socks. The following is from their 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.
No Seams to Bug Ya!
Completely free of seams, the patented kids' socks are designed to provide comfort and relief to children who struggle with “bumps & lumps” in their socks.
Reduces annoying wrinkling and bunching in the shoe
Corespun yarns using Lycra and form-ﬁtting design result in children's socks that “hug” the foot reducing wrinkling and bunching. The form fitting design also helps to keep socks on the wiggliest of toes.
UNIQUE NO HEEL DESIGN
“No heel” design allows children to put on socks with confidence and keeps little feet from outgrowing their socks so quickly.
Comfortable Non-Binding Top
Our non-binding Halo Top™ fits comfortably without slipping down the leg.Regular socks often have elastic bands at the tops of the sock that can often pinch, bind or be a source of irritation.
Keeps Feet Dry & Healthy
SmartKnitKIDS™ Socks are made with high-tech ﬁbers that wick moisture away helping control odor or "stinky feet".
I've got to tell you- these socks are definitely on the thumbs up list in our house & I think I'm going to buy a few pairs for my nephew. He doesn't have any sensory issues but is very prone to not keeping on his socks because "they feel ick". If you have any little people in your life with sensory issues or a general dislike for socks I encourage you to try a pair from SmartKnitKIDS! I think you'll be very glad you did!!!
