Hi
I saw someone post how long their kids school shoe last' but I have problems with their socks after hand wash a few times become very loose at the ankle.
Is it 3 for $5, very lousy quality. Then what type should I buy that can last longer.

I believe its how you sun them and fold them. My mom used to stuff one sock into the other and make it into a ball. I think that stretches the opening of the sock and then it stays like that because of the other sock in it. In the long run, it becomes loose.

Instead, just fold it flat. Hope it helps.

I buy the white with grey soles type from Kiddy Palace. My son said these socks are more comfy than the cheaper type. They have lasted quite well.

He wears Nike socks for badminton as they are tighter and protect his feet during high impact sports. But these sports socks are not comfy for normal school use as they are too tight.

Addidas socks are the best. Follow by Reebok. The elasticity stays and doesn't go out of shape. Nike socks are less ideal comparatively, seem to stretch a little & become looser. Popular's socks are not lasting at all but can't really complain with that price, good for back up.

Popular socks are definitely not lasting. Get loose really fast....
Recently tried one particular brand (通学用 - has a black line at the toes) from neighborhood store.....think it is much better than Popular socks. Only $2 per pair. I dun buy the thick kind cos' kids after wearing for a whole day, their feet get damp and start to have peeling skin.
