Sun Sox Review

Little Aussie, review

Hushpuppy is a well-documented beach baby, so when the kind and generous folks at Sun Sox offered to send her a pair to try out, I thought we could definitely give them a run around.

I wanted to get them out this week, but as luck would have it, sunny Sydney’s forecast looked pretty much like this:

How good are my photoshopping skills, am I right?? ... ? ...

So, instead of testing them at the beach, I packed up the stir-crazy pair of us and went to the indoor pool. Sunday afternoon, by the way, seems to be the perfect time to go to the pool, as we had the place nearly all to ourselves for almost an hour.

I popped the Sun Sox on her feet, and she took to calling them her “flippers.” They do not, in truth, turn your child into an Octonaut, as I think she was projecting, but they are designed to protect their feet. They’re a really soft and flexible fabric, which provides UPF 50+ (which we didn’t put to much use on this day … see forecast, above). They also have a great grippy bottom, which I thought was good for her walking around the pool area and to and from the locker room.

The thing that I liked most was that the ankle part fits quite snugly, so I didn’t have to worry about them falling off in the water. One less potentially moving part to worry about.

Plus, they do look pretty cute, don’t they?hpuppy

We ended up staying at the pool for two hours, and my nap-refuser fell asleep in the stroller on the way home for a long afternoon sleep. Bliss. I can’t say definitively that this was due to the Sun Sox, but hey, give it a try!

Thanks to Sun Sox for sending us a pair to review. They retail for $14.99. More on their website.

    Do they come in adult sizes? I know someone who would really dig the purple socks. I’m definitely checking out the website.
