Socks!!

What are your favorite brand of baby/ toddler socks? My son has Chunky legs and we are having a hard time finding ones that are good. We have Hanes crew cut and Circo brand. I liked the size lower in Hanes ankle socks but I was hoping for more coverage with the coldness and all,

Re: Socks!!

We love Gap Socks, the older style that only fold over once or no fold -- versus the tri-fold. They stay on

Old Navy socks aren't too bad as well. Now that we are in larger sizes, last toddler size / first boy size I have found that gymboree socks aren't too bad.

Re: Socks!!

GAP, Gymboree and The Children's Place have my favorite socks for little ones. Once my boys are in size 12 ish shoes, we switch to Hanes or whatever *regular* sock (preferably with a grey bottom).

Re: Socks!!

We primarily use carters and gymboree. I only buy the gymboree socks when they are in the clearance bins (I can always find some), they come in (I think) 2 pair packs and I get them for a couple bucks for the set. I love the gymbo socks, but would not pay full price for them even if they sparkled in gold...LOL

Carters socks I buy when they are half off (isn't carters always half off?) and I use the coupons they always run for 20% off a $40 purchase.

I have not been happy with any other brand I've tried. I haven't tried baby gap yet.

Robeez socks are awesome. They stay put nicely on my DD2's chubby feet.

Re: Socks!!

I love the Gymbo socks. We have a polyester allergy here, so we're limited to those socks that are cotton/nylon instead of cotton/poly. Of those, the gymbo ones are the best. They're soft, comfy, and they stay on.

Target used to have great socks, but they switched to cotton/poly about a year ago, so we had to stop buying them.

Old Navy socks come in a million colors and hold up better IME than Target or Walmart.
