Socks and Shoes

Socks and Shoes

To all the manufactures of SOCKS everywhere:
Will you please show me the person who’s shoe size is: 6 to 12 or 4-10! Oh yeah, you can’t, because there is NO ONE who can comfortably wear a pair of socks that cover such huge size differences! I’ve been trying to purchase socks for my 9 yr old who wears a size 5 1/2- 6 shoe. (ya know a “big boy” or “young man” size) The shoe pictured is a 5 1/2 the nasty sock that is the one that needs replacing and that nice new sock is a 6-12 size When he tried it on and got his toes in just the right place, that heal was half way up his calf! What kid or grown person really wants to walk around with the heal of their sock half way up their calf? That’s attractive….. said no one EVER! I understand we are a “one size fits all” kid of society (well the sock business seems to be at least) but really, would you like to go buy a pair of pants sized this way? Let’s say you happen to be a waist size 30 and inseam 32, you don’t have to wear a pair of jeans sized 30-36 waist and inseam 30-34, do you? It’s ok cause you can just wear a belt and hem the end right?! Wrong! You just go buy the 30x 32 pants throw them on and be on your way. Not so with socks, you can’t get a pair of socks that fit unless you happen to actually be a size 12 or size 10, anywhere in between is just stuck wearing the heals of their socks half way up their calves!
Sincerely the Sock wearers of the world!
and this very frustrated mother of 6!
