In this article we’ve examined the best socks for children out there – we made a curated list
just for you moms, dads & family, to pick your son/daughter the best quality socks out there.
How we came up with this list
We head out there and read reviews of the top rated brands & models of children socks over at Amazon.
After filtering the lesser quality socks, we took the leaders with a user testimonial – showing the pro’s and con’s of the sock.
We ranked them according to:
- Material Quality & Durability
- Ease of washing
What we came up with is the following list, summarized both in the table and picture w/ testimonial below.
Have a great read!
The Best Socks For Your Children
My first grader (age 7.5) wears a size 2.5 shoe and I ordered the size large sock (says fits shoe: 3-9) – it was a perfect fit – not too small, not too big. I can’t imagine this being a good fit if his shoe size was much bigger however, because there is really no room to spare, but its absolutely perfect at this size, just know that it runs small. I had previously purchased the Jeffrey’s 6-pack of size 8-9.5 (medium) which said its supposed to fit shoe size 12-6 and they were so tight on him that it left grooves in his skin around the ankle. So that brand runs REALLY small! I decided to try the Fruit of the Loom and see how they fit in comparison and they are MUCH better. The part that goes around the ankle is 1″ larger in circumference and 1/2″ longer at the toe (compared to the Jeffreys medium). I’m very pleased with these.

These are fun slip-on water skin socks that you can wear around the house or around the yard or beach or lake. They slip right on. They are stretchy. I put them on easily and they fit great. I wear a Size 7.5 US women shoes and I ordered L – Large so keep that in mind. They are for kids and adults so make sure you order the right size. The navy color is lovely. They keep a nice form when you put them on the floor. I’m washing it in the washing machine today. Also I put my sneakers over them to go for a walk and it felt a bit tight and uncomfortable, so they may not be the best to wear with sneakers. I plan to wear them by themselves. Great fun socks, although I don’t see that I have a whole lot of use for it.Disclaimer: I received this product at zero or very low cost to test and provide my honest, unbiased opinion. Your thoughts and experiences may vary from that of my own.
My 6 yr old daughter loves these socks! We received them last week and they’re the only type she picks out to wear each morning. I ordered the size “7.5-9 Sock/10.5-4 Shoe” since she wears size 11.5 shoes and they fit perfectly on her. If she pulls on the back of the sock enough, the heel of the sock will go up past her heel, but if she puts them on without tugging on the socks, the heel falls right where they are supposed to.I love that they have colored stripes under the feet so they’re easy to match up and don’t get mixed up with her little brother’s white socks. The stripes don’t show when she has shoes on but they make laundry so much faster and easier! They’re holding up well after washing so far.The best part is that they’re a great value for the price. Six pairs for $5-$6? I’ll take that. I may have to order an extra set so I don’t have to do laundry as often since she keeps wanting to wear these. 🙂
very good quality at a great price. 3 pair for the price of one. got the xl size for my middle school sixth grader and two high school girls–freshman and junior. fit perfectly. got 12 pair for them to all share–6 white and six black. my sixth grader is bigger then most, but my high schoolers are normal sized. however, my 3rd grader could also where these just fine. they’re be a little long but she folds them over and they’re fine. i can see why some indicated the large size were too small. thanks for the heads up.
My six year old son has Autism, so he has a lot of sensory issues. We’ve gone through dozens of socks to no avail. His words “Too tight, too big, too fluffy, too many threads, and even too plunky” whatever that may mean to him. No matter what socks I bought, they weren’t right. Finally I found these Naartjie socks about two years ago and he loves them. They are virtually seamless, except for a seam right across the top of the toes. He usually doesn’t even notice it. And if he does, I tell him it’s so we know where his toes are. Seems to work. The only problem we seem to have is, he’s so hard on his socks I’m usually buying a new pack each month. But, I will tell you, if I have to buy a new pack of socks every month, so be it. Anything is better than the screaming and crying. These socks have made my mornings 100% better. Thank you so much Amazon and Naartjie.
Aside from the fact that owls are in my daughter’s top 5 FAVORITE animals (thank you Hedwig from Harry Potter!), these socks are just too stinkin’ adorable for words!!! You may be skeptical thinking that the fabric could be thin (ala dollar store socks), but I assure you that these are not thin at all! They are surprisingly much thicker than you would think! The colors are bright and the designs are adorable. I love the color combinations too, They could easily be unisex! I ordered a sz large for my daughter who is 8 & wears a sz 1 shoe. They fit perfectly and have room to grow as they’re stretchy. They come a little higher than mid calf, but not quite to the knee. The fabric is soft, and thick, they appear to give you that “new sock feel” when you have some comfy cushion under your feet. My daughter said they are very comfy & warm! I did receive a discount on these socks in exchange for my honest review & I can honestly say this is a great sock, super cute, and an excellent quality!
I absolutely love going shopping at Amazon when it comes to clothes! Very rarely is anything, (sold with Prime attached to it), shown with inaccurate information. Not to mention all of the great bundle and buys that you can get! This item was of course no exception! Fit just as was expected and was delivered quickly (we got the item 3 days prior to the expected shipping arrival date).All of the stitching is solid, the fabric is of heavy thickness and every piece of the order is of the quality that I would expect from this manufacturer. I am very satisfied with this buy and I couldn’t have beaten the price ANYWHERE… trust me I looked.I will certainly participate in deals like this again as soon as I find them, what a great buy!
These are super adorable, nicely crafted cotton socks. I no longer have to worry about searching in vain for a pair – she now has plenty! Lose one? No big deal. I really like that they are all pinks and white since that’s my daughter’s palette of choice anyway. And unlike some of the socks I’ve purchased over the years, these really are shaking out to a dollar a pair or less, yet are really, really nice. I am familiar with this brand and all of their items are top quality. I will be buying these again.
My son has sensory processing disorder, and he has always been picky about his socks. These socks are soft, the seams are barely detectable, and they are generously sized without being baggy. He loves them now and we will probably be buying a second set since he tends to wear more than one pair a day at times and often goes through them quickly. They are also reasonably priced compared with the so-called sensory-friendly socks we bought last time (that ended up becoming scratchy after a few dozen washings due to being made with a lot of polyester.)
Natuworld Pack of 4 Children Girls Boys Toddlers Cotton Thicken Knee Long Soccer Socks Team Socks for 4-5 Years Old Kids(diffrent color)
Soft and perfect for hockey and soccer. Fits my 5 year old and nine year old.
Toasty warm socks for me, a woman who wears a size 2-4 crocs almost exclusively. They must really stretch because the age spread that can wear these is huge. I don’t think a 7 year old has the same size foot I do. If I wear regular shoes, not crocs, I tend to get a boys size 4.These socks stay up and will be great for my seemingly always cold feet in the Winter. On the packaging it says to turn them inside ou before washing. that should keep them from pilling, as most socks do eventually. I will do that with all my warmer socks. Good idea. 40% Merino wool..no wonder they’re warm. I plan on buying more for Christmas. Merry Christmas to me.
