Seamless socks for kids - No wrinkling, no bunching, no tantrums!

August 9, 2019

Watch in Sign Language

Kids have a love hate relationship with socks. Some love them for the bright, cartoon patterns, many can't wait to kick them off and run around barefoot.

Finding a comfortable pair that fits well and looks good can be a challenge. No one likes to wear socks that bunch up or wrinkle or rub against your toes. That's even so for kids with autism who are extremely sensitive to labels, stitches or seams.

Studio portrait of Pranav Bakshi

Anupama Bakshi vividly recalls her battles with son Pranav, who is now 19 and is India's first model with autism. "We struggled with them when he was small, especially with the seams of the socks. We literally played a game... while I made him wear one he took off the other!"

Looking for a pair that Pranav found comfortable was not easy. "I was not the Google person that I am now and the search was intensive, sometimes exasperating", she says. Do you get into a battle with your child over socks too? Well, battle no more because here's a range of affordable and smart seamless socks all under ₹ 1,000.
