We moved to a new dance school and they require white socks in my son’s ballet shoes (he’s only worn tights previously in them). This really threw him off his ballet dance game as he felt awkward trying to move his foot around bulkier men’s socks. Finding these socks and this company was the best ever! They fit just slim and long enough that he is more secure and confident in ballet class. You’re definitely filling a niche! He is 12 and 5 ft 2 or so in men’s 7.5 shoe size. Unsure of his weight but he’s medium built. Thankfully the smaller size works well as it was all that was in stock when ordered.
My son is entering his 5th year of dance. We have been struggling to find the perfect option for him. He hates wearing tights (who doesn't) but regularl socks are too thick for dance shoes (especially those tight impossible to put on jazz shoes ifykyk). We tried barefoot, but it was smelly and his feet would sweat and stick making it impossible to change shoes between glasses. We tried figure skating socks and girl's dress socks, which were still too thick and kept having to come back to girl's tights under her pants. Then I stumbled across this website and went well these socks aren't cheap, but I will give them a shot. They are perfect! They fit great! His shoes fit great as they are not too thick, they don't slide into his shoe while he is dancing, they don't rub his skin. He is excited too, because as he frequently laments there just isn't enough cool dance stuff for boys and he knows this company is making stuff for dancers just like him! I hope they expand their product line, we would love to see these socks in a shorter ankle length which would be nice for hot summer day rehearsals. We will definitely be back soon for more awesome boy gear.
These socks are a huge upgrade from the random white socks my son had been wearing to class. They stay up great and have a good amount of stretch to go over his boysdancetoo tights!
