Keeping mini socks in pairs isn’t easy. Sometimes your little one pulls them off while you’re out and about or they get lost in the dryer. Either way, you’re left with an unfinished set.

Try Blindmice‘s super cute mismatched socks. Launched last Oct., they come in twenty-plus adorable color and pattern combos like light blue houndstooth, pink gingham or navy dots in packs of three or five ($9.50 – $14.50). So there’s always a stylish duo for your tot to wear.

Made of 200-thread count seamless cotton, they feature super soft banded tops so they don’t fall off, but aren’t too snug. Talk about comfy!

Duh!

they are cute, but what a waste of money. Buy a pack of tube socks (for which there is no risk of mismatched sets) for 1/3 of the price and donate $10 to charity.

If you want mismatched socks just mismatch the ones you already have. To other people these sock will look just as mismatched as any other as they don’t know they were made to be mismatched.

LOL, I love Marla’s comment. I think the company should come out with something I have been having such problems finding : baby socks that have gris on the bottom that do not shrink after 1 wash

The socks are cute but at the same time…if you buy a lot of socks in the same color and one gets lost, you’ll already have spares!

Just buy a pack of ten white pair of socks and you don’t have to worry about mismatching.
You save a lot of money and they’re always matching!

These socks don’t look purposefully mismatched, they just look mismatched which I don’t think looks cute.

I love it! And for the reviewers that reasoned that you can just mismatch using socks from home, that is clearly not the same as this. As you can see in the picture, the socks in the pair aren’t identical, but are matched to complement each other. It’s certainly not the same as just throwing together two raggedy old, totally different socks that no longer have a mate. Boo for that comparison.

Also, and possibly more importantly, I have purchased blindmice socks (getting ready to place a 2nd order), and LOVE LOVE LOVE them. They remain incredibly new looking and soft after many washes, and I can’t find the adorable scallop-style ankle socks anywhere. They also, somehow, stay on very well without leaving indentations on the legs.

Finally, I don’t know where other people buy their socks, but feel the price is comparable to the other stores that I’ve purchased quality socks from (e.g. Gap). Sure, you can buy cheaper socks, but what you get is cheaper socks that stiffen after a few washings, fray easily, and fly off with a few swift baby kicks.

Go blindmice socks!!!

Sure, white socks are cheaper and easier. But, cute, colorful socks are so much more adorable for our little babies’ feet. Love these socks! And if my son could speak for himself, he would agree that his piggies are very happy.

I saw these at Takashimaya in NY, they make a houndstooth that is too cute!

I love these socks! Both my 2 year old and 4 month old wear them all the time. We get tons of compliments on them – and they always stay on (which is definitely rare with kids socks)

Lisa on

I bought these socks for my 6 month old and my 2 year old and we love them. If you want white socks, then buy white socks. But, if you like fashionable footsies, then get these. My 2 year old always chooses these to wear. They are cute and comfortable for her. I love them for my 6 month old beccause he can’t kick them off but they are not too tight on his fat ankles. Price-wise, they are no different than any good socks for kids…

LOVE these socks! They are incredibly soft and super cute! Will continue to buy them for my two little ones!

It takes a real sense of humor to be a good parent. So baby’s world is not perfect, even if we want it to be. These quickly socks embrace that and kick it up to cool (no pun intended)

Katie on

Seriously, these socks are so ADORABLE! I bought these for my niece and for a friend’s baby and they were such a hit! I’m not so sure that a pack of white tube socks would have been as much fun as these. This has definitely become my go-to baby shower gift!

I guess it’s just me that likes a nice, clean looking pair of white socks!

I’m not a big fan of colourful socks anyways, really.

I love how white ones look so clean and they match with everything! Adults and children alike!

B.Z. on

Definitely worth every penny. Not only are they fun, they are extremely soft and durable. My daughter loves them!

Birdie on

I bought these for my twin niece and nephew…I’ve officially solidified my title of ‘Most Stylish’ Aunt…easy and affordable way to add a little fun

Love them! I agree they are pricey and you could easily mix and match with a cheaper pack of socks in the same colour scheme. But these patterns are just so cute!

Regarding the problem with keeping baby’s socks on their feet… has anyone heard of Sock Ons? I just bought some for my 6 mo. old daughter and they are so cute. My new favourite baby product. They go over her socks and keep them “locked” on all day.

for the person who said to buy the cheapest socks you can find and donate the rest to charity…yes that is a nice thought although one I find a bit silly, and I wonder if you’re really that generous with every purchase in your life. Im all for donating to charity and we donate what we can, but my hubby and I work our tails off and if we want to buy our kids silly $9 socks, thats our problem..i dont know, for some reason it always bugs me when someone pulls out the charity card and it comes out a lot on this site…with that said, these socks are super cute and after reading all the positive feedback about washiing and fit, im definitely getting some for my kids🙂

Awesome fit! Stays on more so than any other sock I have used. These socks are sooooooo soft and do not leave a red ring around the ankles of my little girl and boy. I lay these blindmice socks out and let my 3 year old pick out her own socks for the day, or more like morning, then again for the second outfit of the day, third etc. Mismatched, comfortable, secure fitting socks…FINALLY! We all love them, great concept!

gp on

p.s…Forgot to mention that I was in Greece over the holidays and I saw these socks on several little ones, local babies. Have Blindmice socks gone international?

Cathy on

Love these socks! They are so soft and warm, plus they fit great and definitely stay on much better than the other baby socks we have!

Best socks I have found for my little on. I have tried Trumpette, Jazzy Toes and so many store brands and these are BY FAR the best quality I have found. I love them !!
