We’ve been looking at socks to suit all the family with SockShop and their range of Bamboo socks. Can they keep everyone happy, help us to know who’s socks belong to who and restore harmony in the home?
There are a few sock issues in this house that cause issues. Firstly, and I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before on the blog, we have Daddy P and his feet. He has size 14 feet which prove to be a nightmare when it comes to socks and shoes. The internet has been his saviour in recent times for shoes and we’ve only had one source for socks. When I mentioned that we’d been approached to look at socks to suit all the family with SockShop, he looked at me and said ‘you know they won’t sell them in my size.’ Well, he would be wrong, as SockShop go up to size 12-14 in their men’s socks. A revelation and a happy husband.
There are three of us in our household as you well know. My son will be ten in December and he is growing up at an alarming rate. This includes his feet, and he’s now only a size below me, which means we can wear the same size in socks. This has already caused sock wars with my work and his school black socks. He’s quite territorial when it comes to socks it seems! So while we still have that battle to resolve, I’m keen that we can show our own personalities where our socks are concerned so we can easily identify their owners.
I think we’ve managed to cater for everyone quite nicely. My son is known for his red coat and as soon as he saw that he could have bright red socks from the Kids Bamboo sock range, he was over the moon. For myself, I opted for the Nightshade pack of blue and purple striped socks from the Ladies Bamboo Stripe range. My husband is enjoying wearing his navy, grey and black Bamboo socks too.
Socks to suit all the family with SockShop have definitely won us over. We’ve all agreed that these socks are super soft. I’ve been suffering from socks giving me a rash around the cuff area over the last six months, but I’ve not had that issue at all with these Sock Shop socks. My OH works long hours and we’ve also noticed that the natural antibacterial properties of his bamboo socks have really helped to prevent odour by the time he comes home. Perfect! The socks also feature a seamless toe for extra comfort too.
