Keep feet warm

    My kids wear these pair of socks without slippers at home, their feet still really warm. I buy another pair again.

    Bought these for my daughter and so far, so good. Going to use them this weekend in Zion but she says they are super comfy so assuming they'll do the trick

    Very cute

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Got these for my daughter and they are great. Very thick and very comfortable when we're out in the cold. She is really enjoying these.

    Ideal for NYC Winters

    We gave this as a gift for my 2-year-old niece who lives in New York City. We've heard only good things about the quality of and insulation provided by this sock. It has stood up to hard toddler wear and apartment complex washer/dryer combos really well. We gave this in extra small, light gray.

    Winner, winner, chicken dinner!

    My 7yo is super picky about his socks and he LOVES these. They're very soft, but you need to allow for shrinkage. We bought a large for our 7yo boy. His shoe size is a 3. We went back for seconds!

    My son is 11 years old and wears a size 7 shoe . What size should I get?

    Best Answer

    Hey Scott,

    He's already outgrown even the large in the kid's size. By the time you allow for shrinkage, you want to go up to a Men's small.

    Runs small

      Great socks, great color, but runs smaller than quoted size.


        These are great socks, easy on and off, they are a little thicker than I expected and they do shrink in the dryer. I just buy a size larger to prepare for them shrinking.


          Wow. Amazing socks. Easy to put on and rake off. Just don't put them in the dryer.

          Warm and Dry

            After my 3 yr old son came home all red he was so cold and wet I invested in these and other wonderful warm and dry socks, and he's been a happy camper ever since!

            What size sock if my boy wears a size 2 shoe?

            great socks

              My daughter loves them on our hikes, even wears them for everyday walks.

              Great socks for hiking!

                I like SmartWool's hiking socks, but a bit expensive.
                As my foot is relatively small, I ordered socks for kids which is a bit cheaper than adults' socks.
                It's best fit and there was no problem.

                From now, I'll order kids' socks for my hiking.

                Hey what shoe size do you wear?

                Great socks!

                  Great cushioning and keeps very warm. I love that it's wool, yet I can just throw it into the washing machine together with the rest of the laundry.

                    My daughter has no complaints about these socks, and no complaints from her equals no complaints from me! Just remember not to put them in the dryer on high heat- unless you WANT them to shrink.

                    Great for colder weater

                      Loved them for warm to cold weather. But they did not breath well in hot weather hiking.

                      love these

                        These are perfect for the little man (or lady) that enjoys the outdoors. They do not slide off like so many kids socks!

                        warm & comfy

                          It's great that these socks come in different sizes, they fit great and they keep my feet super warm!
