2 out of 3 of my children HATE socks.
The other would wear trash bags if that was what I layed out for him.
I also work with children diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum. One of the main issues that these children deal with is a heightened sensory system.
One main complaint that I find equally between home and work is that socks are uncomfortable. My littlest one will just rip them off as soon as I put them on. If I get shoes on her, she will sit and cry ouch over and over. My oldest tells me how uncomfortable socks are and that they hurt her feet. At work, I notice the kids I work with often were sandals or shoes with no socks.
I recently was able to review 6 pairs of SmartKnit Kids. I received 2 pairs for each child. There was a mix of ankle, crew and Knee High. I am so thankful for SmartKnit Kids and their Seamless Socks! These socks have improved so many aspects of my families morning.
For starters, I encourage my youngest to put on her own clothes. These socks have no seam or heal so regardless of how she puts the sock on, it is right!My oldest no longer complains that the seams hurt the tops of her toes. My oldest 2 are 7 and 9. the 9yo wears a 4 and the 7 yo wears a 5 (i know, huge feet!) but because there is no heal, they can swap socks and no one will ever know.
I also love that there is a halo in the top of the sock that helps the sock fit comfortably and won't slide down the leg. The high tech fibers in the sock help keep feet dry and the antimicrobial benefits keep feet smelling like roses! And guess what mom and dad...they have your size too.
Bet you want some huh?
