As any mom out there can attest to, there is something about socks that just causes them to disappear or end up destroyed. Maybe there really is a sock monster in the dryer that sucks them up (and I know that you know it’s only one at a time, that’s why there are so many mismatched socks!) Maybe my floor really is that dirty so the once white socks now have a strange tint to them. I haven’t even mentioned the issue of how hard it is to find socks that actually stay on your little ones, especially when they’re still too little for shoes!
Shopping for kid’s socks is tough, but there is a new online website www.kidssocks.com that makes it much easier. Their website has socks, booties, tights and more for newborns all the way up to the hard to please “tweeners.” I spent some time shopping around on the site and they have done a great job of making it very user friendly. You are able to shop by several different categories (age, gender, brand, etc.) which is pretty helpful. The other great thing about kidssocks.com is that you don’t have to sign up or register anything before you see your total. I know that may not sound like a big deal, but taking the time to sign up and fill out all sorts of information before you know your total price can be a little bit of a headache sometimes. Once you have found an item you are interested in, you are able to enlarge the picture too! My only complaint about the site is the product descriptions aren’t quite up to speed. I’m hoping that this is something they are working on since they are pretty new. My little guy is to the pulling up on everything and creeping around stage which is great… but we have hardwood floors which means he really needs the socks that have good grippers on the bottom. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to tell which socks had “gripper bottoms” and which ones didn’t. They have an option for you to add to the product descriptions, but that didn’t really help me out too much.
My experience with products from kidssocks.com has been amazing! They sent me a sample of True Religion socks. These socks came in a great variety of colors (I’ve even been putting the pink ones on my little guy to cruise around the house in). I have to say that the best things about the True Religion socks are how well they actually stay on my baby (without leaving huge imprints on his little legs), and how awesome the grippers on the bottom are. He actually started pulling up onto things with these socks on and was so proud of himself! Without those little rubber dots, he would have been slipping and sliding all over the place. The socks have washed well, worn well, and I’d love to shop kidssocks.com to find some more!
