SmartKnitKIDS Review & Giveaway


Do you have kids that are sensitive to the seams on socks? My nephew is extremely sensitive to it and my sister-in-law has a heck of a time finding socks for him that don't bother him. I also have a friend whose son has autism and seams on socks really bother him as well, so when I heard about this company, I had to check it out.

Here's a little info about SmartKnitKIDS Socks

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 ensure a drier and more hygienic sock environment. They are also anti-microbial, inhibiting fungal odor-causing bacteria.

Although Asher has never really commented much about his socks bothering him, he does have a serious sensitivity to tags in shirts and I hate to see him so uncomfortable, so I can sympathize with moms who have kids who are sensitive to sock seams.

I was sent 3 pairs of socks (2 white and 1 navy) and thought I'd try them out and see what Asher thought of them. He was excited about the little bug wearing socks on the box, so that sold him! LOL I liked that he could easily pull on the socks and that because there are no designated heel areas, there was no top or bottom and he could just pull them on and go. I wondered how the sock would do as far as staying up with no elastic at the top, but it stayed put all day and the sock also didn't get all twisted up like tube socks seem to do. I also liked that due to the material, the navy socks could easily be worn casually or as dress socks.

All in all, I think these socks do exactly what they say they do. I would be very confident to recommend them to anyone who has a child with sensitivities to sock seams and since they make them in a very broad range of sizes, you can get them for babies and even adults.

The nice people over at SmartKnitKIDS would like to offer one of my readers 3 pairs of socks in the size and color of your choice!!! See below for how to gain entries into this giveaway.

Love this! Jacob is always saying that his socks are funny. This is only one brand that I can buy for him right now and I think these would be a perfect solution to this. I will probably orders some SmartKnit Kids Ankle socks large.

These would be perfect for Sierra, she has major issue with socks that have seams, always has, she hates the seams, and they are hard to find seamless.....I am so off to check out this site!

Kelly pauley said...

I would choose the womens size 5-8 for Sierra probably in white, but I might actually be buying some of these regardless of if I win or not, so I might get her some black too.
