SmarkKnit KIDS socks were designed with Kids that have hypersensitivity or sensory processing disordersin mind. One of the symptoms to this disorder is a heightened awareness of and irritation from the seams in socks. Many kids cannot or will not wear socks because the seams are so irritating. (This can be very challenging to parents - When Miss C. was little we had to cut the tags out of all of her clothing. It made trying to sort through hand-me-downs interesting to say the least. I remember being woken up many a night to cut the tag out of her PJs.)

I offered to review a pair of these socks and honestly I think they are great for anyone.

With the exception of sandals, I am very particular about the girls wearing socks with their shoes. It helps keep their feet healthy. It also stops them from getting so stinky. It is amazing how stinky little kids' feet can get. One thing I have noticed is that many of the socks sold today at major retailers are thin, not manufactured well and/or fall apart easily. Last month I bought Miss N. some new socks and one of the pairs came apart at the seams after wearing one time! I was not too happy but did not want to take the time and effort to return one pair of socks to the store so considered it a poor purchasing decision and a loss.

I was pleasantly surprised when I received the SmartKnitKIDS socks. The first thing I noticed was the quality. These were a heavier material that felt higher quality to the touch. They were also very soft with a nice stretch (not TOO stretchy - just enough to make putting on or taking off easy and enough to hold up on their own).

We received a variety of sizes so these are good for kids of different ages. It would be great to see them come in bigger sizes or prints also.

Here are some highlights of the features of the SmartKnitKIDS socks:

TRULY SEAMLESS - Completely free of seams, - their product is designed to be knit in a cocoon fashion, starting from the toe up.

UNIQUE NO HEEL DESIGN - Kids can be confident they are putting their socks on right if they do not have to worry about a "right" way and a "wrong" way. Also extends the life of the sock as the child will not outgrow it so quickly.

NON-BINDING - These socks stay put without the pinching elastic band on top.

NO “STINKY FEET” - SmartKnit Seamless Socks wick moisture away from this skin. What does this mean? Less sweaty, stinky feet!
