SmartKnitKIDS Seamless Socks Review & GIVEAWAY

I was contacted by a company that helps match bloggers to companies that would like their products reviewed. I wasn't sure if that was the direction I wanted my blog to go, but I was intrigued. After checking it out, I found several products that are very much in line with me and my family.
So, with that said, I am so very excited to share my first product review with you!

SmartKnitKIDS makes a variety of seamless sensitivity sock products that I am in love with!
You can visit the SmartKnitKIDS website
here. When I agreed to do this review, I was highly interested in the SmartKnit AFO & KAFO socks.
As you know, our Wyatt has mild cerebral palsy and wears an AFO.
He was able to go a couple of years without his AFO, but has recently had to begin wearing one again.
To be completely honest, I need to tell you that I had actually purchased SmartKnit AFO socks for him years ago, but due to packaging changes since I bought those socks and the amount of years that have passed, I had no idea these were made by the same company.
With that being said, I can guarantee that I not only truly love and recommend these socks, but I also have lots of experience with specifically the AFO socks.
For example, I found out the hard way NOT TO USE BLEACH when washing the AFO socks.
:)This chart shows how the AFO/KAFO socks are sized.
Though we have only used the white AFO socks, SmartKnit makes them in white, black, grey, navy, purple, and pink.Because the socks are seamless, they are also wonderful for those in the Autism spectrum, anyone with sensory issues, or even diabetics.
No seams = No rubbingThis isn't the best picture, but I was hoping to show how soft and fluffy the fabric is.
They are, by far, the softest socks I have ever felt.
The socks are made with moisture-wicking fibers, which help keep your feet cool and dry... a major plus when your leg is encased in an AFO for hours!
Care instructions for this smooth, soft fabric: machine wash warm, tumble dry medium, and do not bleach.Wyatt prefers wearing his AFO socks a little long.
He likes to fold the sock down over the top of his AFO.
This especially helps when he has long pants on.
It helps to ensure the velcro on his AFO doesn't cling to the lining of his pants. I wanted to include this visual for you, if you're wondering what all the hype is about seamless socks compared to traditional socks.
Not having seams can truly help those who are rubbed by the seams- which is common in AFO wearers and those with sensory issues.See how smooth?I know I've had lots to say about the SmartKnit AFO socks, but what's even more wonderful is that SmartKnitKIDS makes several other types of socks, as well!
These are the kids' socks.
LOVE THEM!
We will be purchasing lots of them!
They are made of the same fibers and are super soft!
They are also seamless.Because they come in ankle, crew and knee-high lengths, there is a style to suit everyone!
These are all mine!
Yep! SmartKnitKIDS makes a BigKids sock that fits adults.
I've considered hiding my pair, so that none of my boys could possibly put them on their feet.
That's how exceptionally soft and comfortable they are!

Now, for the exciting part!

They look really nice and I will have to go check them out!! I have trouble with seams in socks because my feet are little! The seams always rub in the wrong places. (not that there is a good place to rub)

I can't wait to tell my sister to read this post! Her daughter doesn't have any "special" needs, BUT she is so ultra picky about things like socks, panties, clothes in general and how they FEEL! (Maybe she does have some sensory issues! =0) )

Thanks for being a joyful mother of boys! I need to work on that!

I'm going to go LIKE these on facebook, too! Thanks, again!
