I have a hard time finding socks for Sydney. No, she doesn’t have a problem with seams. She could care less (so far) if socks have seams. I have never really been able to find socks that fit her (since birth), and when she wears shoes her feet sweat. BAD. Socks definitely don’t help that.
Then I found SmartKnitKIDS. SmartKnitKIDS created Seamless Sensitivity Socks for kids that literally could not stand the seams in socks. My younger sister had a problem with seams and tags when she was younger. We ended up cutting tags out of clothes and turning her socks inside out for lack of a better option at the time. Seamless socks are knit the same way caterpillars spin their cocoons, from the toe to the ankle. These are also very form-fitting socks to keep lumps and bumps out.
Don’t get me wrong, Sydney and I both REALLY like everything about these socks, but I want to tell you my three VERY favorite things about these socks. They have a non-binding “Halo Top™” that fits comfortable, but still prevents the socks from slipping down the leg. In our experience, these socks haven’t left any marks on our feet (Yes, they were nice enough to send me an adult pair!). They are made with “high-tech fibers” which wick the moisture away from feet to keep the socks drier (and prevent stinky feet).
My absolute favorite part is that they have a “No heel” design. This helps keep kids from outgrowing their socks quickly, but it also means a more customized fit for each individual. The Kids socks come in small, medium, large, X-large, and XX-large. I got the Medium size for Sydney (she wears shoe size 4 toddler now). They are knee-high socks now, but will go to crew then ankle socks as her feet grow. This means she could wear these until she is a shoe size 8-12 toddler (if she doesn’t wear them out haha)!!
I don’t know about how they felt on Sydney’s feet (they were definitely drier feeling than other socks), but these socks were extremely comfortable on me. They are very thin, which is great in the summertime, but they still kept my feet warm inside (which is a miracle if you ask my hubby-my feet are always freezing).
The Kids socks come in white, black, pink, purple, and navy. Ankle, crew and knee-high styles are available up to a youth size 8. The BigKids socks come in white and black and are available in Women’s shoe sizes 5-11 and Men’s shoe sizes 5-10.
