Back to school…socks and all

Posted by SOCKSHOP

Summer holidays might seem endless when you’re a kid, but as a parent planning for the new term it’s over sooner than you’d think, especially if your little ones have undergone a growth spurt in the past few months and are no longer so little.

This means it’s time to go uniform shopping once again…

School Socks

Things to look out for

First things first, you need to see what still fits. Get them to stop hunting Pokémon for a couple of minutes and measure them up.

Once you’ve got a pile of clothes that are still the right size, see how much of it is actually wearable.

This will probably leave you with a pretty small pile, some of which will be discarded because it’s either "not fashionable” anymore, or because the school has changed its dress code. The long and short of it is that you’ll probably need a full uniform.

This includes:

  • Shirts and t-shirts
  • Jumpers
  • Trousers
  • Skirts
  • Shorts (every day and PE)
  • Shoes – trainers and smart shoes
  • Bag
  • Jacket (at least one, maybe a winter one as well)

And don’t forget the socks

School Socks
While the key items you’ll focus on will be the likes of shorts and skirts, polo tops and jumpers, getting them some comfy socks is just as important for a long day at school – especially if you’re also buying them new shoes.

We know that talk of socks isn’t going to get most kids excited, but if you can promise them an end to bulky toe seams, stinky feet and even throw in a bit of style then they might get on board.

Our range of sports socks that will provide their feet with support, as well as being more breathable so they’re less likely to hold sweat and smell.
