Cover Your Kid's Feet With Stylish And Comfortable Cotton Socks

Sep 23rd 2014 at 5:15 AM

Socks are more than just plain old white, fuzzy fabric tubes to cover your child's feet—they are also an essential part of your child's outfit, both in terms of function and style. In the past, all socks seemed to look the same and rightfully so, because they were created for one purpose and one purpose only—to serve as feet covering. Today however, socks are designed and created with much more diversity and creativity. They can be divided according to function, the material used, style, length, design, and so much more. Not only do socks serve as practical accessories to help keep your children's toes warm, snug, and cosy—they can also be used to create strong fashion statements.

Children's socks are fun items to shop for because they come in a great range of interesting designs. This said, you should look farther than just the look and design of the sock when you are shopping for your kids.

The material used is one of the most important considerations to make as you shop for children's socks. Different materials are used for socks designed for different functions. Athletic socks, for example, are mostly made out of materials that provide good protection, a snug fit, and good circulation around the wearer's calf area. These socks should also be able to keep the feet free from moisture and sweat, especially during prolonged activity. Ski socks, just like winter socks, must be made out of materials that will keep the feet warm and snugly fitted inside your child's boots. Meanwhile, dress and trouser socks should be made out of thinner materials so they can easily be concealed under clothing.

Cotton is the most common material used to make children's socks. Because cotton is a natural fibre, it offers great comfort and is extremely lightweight. It also does not trigger skin problems as very few people are allergic to the material. Cotton socks are breathable, which means it is less likely for bacteria to settle and cause bad odour. Additionally, cotton is a sustainable material, which makes it a good choice if you want to lessen environmental impact by supporting products made out of sustainable resources. One disadvantage of wearing cotton socks is its high absorbency, causing socks to soak in more moisture and in turn make them dry slower when worn. Just the same, cotton socks are ideal for wearing during less strenuous activities.
