SmartKnitKIDS Socks--A Review

A while back, I got an email asking that I review a pair of socks on my blog. I normally refuse to do reviews because the requests I have gotten so far have been for things that don't interest me.

This request intrigued me, though, because I know there are a lot of moms out there who would be interested in these socks. You see, they are completely seamless. So, I said, "Why not?"

Danny hasn't been wearing socks much since it is summer, but the other day when we were headed to our nature center, I insisted the kids don footwear. Danny was actually excited to wear these SmartKnitKIDS Seamless Sensitivity Socks. He said they feel "slippery," which means in Dannyspeak that they are smooth.

Later in the day, I asked Danny if he liked them and his face lit up in a smile as he crowed, "Yes! Yes, I do!"

The real testament to his appreciation, though, came the next day. Danny insisted on wearing them again and got upset when I explained that the socks were in the wash.

Later in the day, however, I noticed Danny was wearing the seamless socks, only this pair wasn't quite as dirty as yesterday's pair. Unbeknownst to me, Danny had surreptitiously stolen the extra pair of socks in the box. The pair that I was intending on giving away to a reader. Of course, I noticed after Danny had worn them for hours on my very unclean floors, so they are in no condition to be seen by anyone outside the family.

I recommend checking out their website at:

Note: I was not compensated in any way for this review. I was sent some socks to try out, but was not paid.

I had heard about these and it has all been good. I haven't had to invest yet, my son doesn't seem to have a problem with socks (yet) but I will definitly be buying these if/when the need arises:) Jen

Can I ask you a question about the socks? I know my kids - all three of them - would love them, but we are runners in our house, meaning we get our energy out by running circles in the house through the kitchen and dining room with hardwood floors. Are they slippery?
Currently my two youngest still use the socks with grippy words on the bottom so they don't slide, and I can tell when the words are worn out because they fly through the air...
any thoughts?
