<p>Now, you might think that it is easy to choose the right kind and size of socks for your kids, by just buying socks that are the same size as your kid&rsquo;s shoe, but in reality shoe and sock sizes for kids differ quite a bit. To avoid making mistakes and buying a lot of kids socks that will fit only your family dog, there are a few things you have to know about what you are buying.</p>
<h1>Determining the size of your child&rsquo;s socks</h1>
<p>When you start buying socks for your little ones, first thing you have to do is determine the size of the socks that will fit your child. While they are more forgiving than other types of clothing, socks that are too tight or too big might cause your child a series of problems.</p>
<p>One of the most important things in determining the size of your kid&rsquo;s socks is their age. Sometimes the sock size will only be displayed in one of the four categories depending on their age. These four categories consist of: Infant (0-9 months), Toddler (9-24 months), Child (2-4 years) and Youth (4-8 years). These four categories are based on average size of children during that certain age, however no child is the same as all the other children. When choosing the right size socks according to age, use your individual judgement if your child is, for instance, bigger than other kids of its age.</p>
<p>Another very important thing to take in consideration is the shoe size of your child. As stated before, shoe size is not the same as sock size, so a little conversion needs to be made before determining the sock size. The shoes size is always represented as a numerical value, and just sometimes accompanied by one of the four categories mentioned before.</p>
<p>When determining the socks size by shoe size, the categories are as follows: shoe sizes 0-3 equal to sock sizes 2-3; shoe sizes 3-8 equal to sock size 4-6; shoe sizes 8-13 equal to sock sizes 6-8. Keep in mind however that every manufacturer has different numerical values of shoe sizes, so you should probably ask the seller about shoe sizes, or go to the shoe designer&rsquo;s website and check their measurements, as well as using your own experience and personal judgement to avoid buying socks that do not fit your child.</p>
<h1>Choosing the right type of socks</h1>
<p>When choosing the right type of socks for your kids, choices fall into 3 categories: sock themes, sock cuts and sock material. Each of the choices have their own good and bad sides. When choosing socks for a baby however, the most important thing is that socks should never be too tight as they can squeeze the toes and cause discomfort, or too loose so they slide down the foot and gather uncomfortably in the shoe.</p>
<p>When it comes to sock themes, there are many of them. It all depends on your child&rsquo;s interests, like cartoon character socks, sports teams socks, animal socks, colorful socks, music socks, space socks, fuzzy socks. With today&rsquo;s abundance of choices, it is hard not to find whatever your child likes. Be creative when choosing sock theme that suits your child&rsquo;s interests, and you will never go wrong.</p>
<p>When choosing sock cuts, there are many choices to go for: Ankle socks, Knee high socks, boot, trouser, slipper socks, performance socks, toe socks, tights and leggings. Choosing the right cut and fit of the socks depends on the time of the year, general climate of the area you live in as well as clothes and shoes your kids are wearing and at last by your own preferences. If you for instance live in warmer climates where your kid wears shorts a lot, ankle socks are the best choice for your child. If you however live in colder climates, then slipper socks, knee high socks, or even boot socks might be a good choice for your kid. Choose sock cuts accordingly.</p>
<p>Last, but by no means least important is the material choice for your kids socks. Wool is a great insulator and is good for both warm and cold weather. It is a natural material that is highly absorbent too. If your children&rsquo;s feet do get sweaty in wool though, cotton is also a great choice. Like wool, it is a natural material that is super comfortable. It is also great if your child is allergic to man-made materials. If your child is into sports a lot, socks made of polyester or acrylic are good for them as those materials are durable, and keep their feet cool and dry.</p>
<p>At the end, whenever you choose to buy socks in stores or online, if you follow these tips, you are less likely to&nbsp;<a href="https://www.sockbin.com/store/girls/c-4">mess up your kids sock shopping</a>&nbsp;and come back home with a lot of socks that will only suit your pets. Keep to the guidelines, but also your own judgement and you will never be wrong.</p>
