My older son goes through socks like water. I find ripped toes, ripped heels and even one pair. I swear his shoes eat his socks. I tend to have to buy him socks regularly. I purchased the Low Cut Socks by Athletic Works for him to wear for basketball.
The Athletic Works low cut socks for boys came in a package of 10 pairs of socks. The shoe size are boys 3 - 6. My son wears size 4 shoes so these are perfect fit for him. The low cut socks came is two different styles and 5 pairs of socks for each style. The first style is all black and the second style was black bottoms with a strip of white along the top and black around the ankles. I refuse to buy my son white socks so the fact that both styles had black bottoms was what really made me purchase these socks.
They have a reinforced toes and heels as well as cushioned soles. They are made of 65% Polyester, 35% Cotton, 2% Spandex and 1% Rubber. I wash these socks with his coloured clothes and the black hasn't even faded!
