Buying Guide

Toddler socks are made in different styles for different occasions. Crew cuts cover the ankle and can go partway up the calf. Ankle socks go just over the ankle, while no-show ankle socks do not. No-shows might not be appropriate for little children, since they hit below the ankle and can slip down. Socks with higher cuffs can keep legs warmer and work better with boots.

Non-slip rubber grips on the soles of socks are important for active toddlers, as it can prevent them from falling. Also check for elastic at the cuffs, which will keep the socks in place. Manufacturers do not follow strict standard sizing for these socks, but they generally fall into three categories: 6 to 12 months, 12 to 24 months, and 2T to 4T.

What to Look For

  • Some socks tend to run big or small. Read the reviews before you buy, and you should find some helpful feedback.
  • Little socks are notorious for getting lost in the laundry. To avoid this, you can buy sock clips online or place the socks in mesh laundry bags when you wash them.
  • Check the sizing once you have the socks, since either tight or loose socks can be uncomfortable. The heel of the sock should cradle the child’s heel. If it is too high up, the sock is probably too large. If the heel is in the arch, the sock is too small. The sock material should not bunch up anywhere, and it should be flush against the foot.
