As soon as I opened these socks and I have to mention Rose at smartknitkids was generous enough to send one for all three of the kids, you can feel the difference. The material on these socks are like no other.On their website it says: SmartKnitKIDS™ Socks are made with high-tech ﬁbers that wick moisture away helping ensure a drier and more hygienic sock environment. They are also anti-microbial, inhibiting fungal odor-causing bacteria. I just love how they don't have a heel or toes markings, that way the kids don't quickly grow out of the socks. If you have a baby you know how hard it is to get them socks that actually stay on. The other kids have shoes to keep them in place, but I usually keep my baby in socks and I am always loosing them, but these actually stay on, and no markings on the ankle from the socks either!
I tried to get some good pictures but anyone with more than one kids knows how difficult that is. They all loved their socks in fact the baby was trying to eat them:) These do not have elastic at the top like other socks, the design and the material used makes it so that they stay up with no irritation and that also mean that they don't bunch up in shoes. it gets really hot here so I cant wait to use them in the summer but even now when we are out and about and they are wearing their shoes for most of the day, it does get sweaty and stinky, but not with smart knits they are awesome and highly recommended by me. I have already washed them and dried them and they keep their shape and color beautifully. If you don't have a lot of money, invest in these they will definitely last longer than normal socks
