This Saturday, October 24, 2015 is Make a Difference Day. Held every fourth Saturday in October, Make a Difference Day is a community service event with a mission to improve the lives of others.
Making a difference in the lives of others is why we do what we do. In fact, it’s the mission statement of our parent company – Knit-Rite. Our products, including SmartKnitKIDS seamless socks, undies, bralette and compresso tees, are designed to help people.
SmartKnitKIDS seamless socks are knitted using a process borrowed from nature – just like a caterpillar “knits” his cocoon. We start at the toe and knit each sock cocoon style toward the top, resulting in a perfectly seamless sock.
But, what’s the big deal about seams, you ask? Many children (and even some adults) who experience sensory processing differences, or hypersensitivity find seams irritating, annoying and absolutely unbearable. We’ve heard so many stories of parents struggling to put socks on their children every morning because of difficulty in children coping with these irritating seams. SmartKnitKIDS seamless products are perfect for these children. Our socks and undergarments will not wrinkle or bunch and lay perfectly against the skin making them more comfortable and reducing irritation.
Most parents find that SmartKnitKIDS seamless products help their sensitive children to have stress-free days. But, don’t take our word for it. Just listen to what some of our customers say:
My daughter battles me every morning when I ask her to put her socks on so we can get her on the kindergarten bus on time–she hates the sock seams and no matter how we arrange the socks/tights on her foot, we can’t seem to get it so the seam isn’t annoying her. I thought this was very strange until I read other people’s comments on this web site. I ordered two pairs of socks and when they arrived, she examined them suspiciously–she did spot a line on the sock, but held her foot out reluctantly anyway. When the sock went on, her face lit up and she said “Hey……we can put these socks on anytime!” We’ve been doing wash every other day to ensure clean socks, so I am ordering more of these! – Deborah, SmartKnitKIDS Parent
I could never get my son to wear socks before I discovered SmartKnit socks! The PE teacher demanded he wear socks and sneakers to class or he couldn’t participate in any playground fun- all he would wear were sandals. Once we started using SmartKnit socks he put his socks and shoes on without complaining! I threw all the other brands out! Thank you, thank you, thank you! – Michelle, SmartKnitKIDS Parent
It’s been a about a year since our five-year-old daughter, who has been diagnosed with both a sensory disorder and anxiety disorder, has been able to wear socks without a full blown, tear filled meltdown. I tried other “seamless” socks, but I quickly realized that what is seamless to one child is surely NOT seamless to our little girl. When I read about SmartKnit socks, I ordered one pair to see if they would work. When they arrived and I told our daughter that her new socks without “bumps” were here, she started to cry and say that she hates socks. I showed them to her, she took them, and she hid under the table. She popped out, wearing both a big smile AND the socks! She exclaimed, “Wow! These really work! I am going to wear them everyday!!!” With tears in my eyes, I called her dad and her grandparents to tell them the news! We will DEFINITELY be ordering more! Thanks from the bottom of our hearts!!!! – Alice, SmartKnitKIDS Parent
My son and I used to get so frustrated when it came to putting on socks and shoes. He would try on every sock in his drawer to find the one that bugged him the least. He also hated when socks would slouch and cause wrinkles in his shoes or snow boots. Sometimes he would come in from playing just to straighten his socks! I decided to give SmartKnit KIDS socks a try. When he put them on, he smiled and let out a sigh of relief. Then he smiled and said, “Thanks Mom!” Not only are these socks super soft and comfortable, they gently hug the foot and don’t “slouch”. No more uncomfortable wrinkles! He also really love the fact that there is no heal to “line up”. He really likes them, and I love that he can just grab a pair of socks and put them on! – Sherri, SmartKnitKIDS Parent
My five year old son has Autism and with that, a host of sensory processing issues. He has not worn socks since he was two. I found your socks online and ordered three pairs to start. We have incorporated them into his occupational therapy sessions and he is even starting to wear them to school. This is a HUGE accomplishment for him and I am so happy I came across your website. Thank you for making this wonderful product…keep up the good work! – Nina, SmartKnitKIDS Parent
