Nix Socks

Okay, I LOVE Nix "All-Star" socks. They are a very cute, but also very functional part of my 18-month-old son's wardrobe. These knee-highs are great for the cold winter months here in NYC-keeping that pant/sock gap covered in the baby carrier and the stroller.
Also, Nix socks make a great addition to my son's spring/fall wardrobe. These socks are so high that he can wear them with his shorts (even with slightly cool spring breezes) and still stay warm.
We have these white socks (above) in the blue and black stripes. I love the extra padding that the Nix company adds to the foot of the socks, which makes walking on the hardwood floor of our apartment a little more cushy, and the sock altogether more resilient. My husband loves the circa 1970's basketball player look that my son sports around town when he wears these cute little socks.

Nix socks come in a variety of colors for baby boys and girls. You can currently purchase them at or at several baby boutiques nationwide. A 2-pack of Nix socks is $16. The socks are "one-size-fits all" which should fit shoe sizes 2-7.

So who wants to win some NIX socks? Visit the website and answer the following question, "who was the inspiration for the name of Nix socks?". Email me at with the answer, and with NIX in the subject line. Nix has generously agreed to give away a 2-pk of socks to two winners! Enter by Midnight on Friday 3/21/08. To enter, you must live in the US or Canada.

Yep, definitely on my list of things to buy! Those trumpette socks were so cute too, but my son out grew them by his 4th month! (I admit he's a little on the large side anyway!)
