My son is really struggling to put on his socks! He is 5 and just can’t get the heels round and struggles to pull them up.

Can anyone advise socks that are really easy to put on?

I would be so grateful for any help anyone can give me

Asda. Also we always go up a size early, and we tend to replace socks completely on a regular basis as new ones are usually a lot easier than old ones. What size are his shoes?

I do find socks vary widely in the ease of putting on and off and then the added complication of them feeling 'just right'. My ds particularly likes the M&S comfort fit ones as they seem to slide on and are comfortable but my other ds prefers big loose socks (and big loose shoes!!!)

some come with tabs on the side. perhaps you can adapt some by sewing handles on the tops.

Ah you're at the bottom of a sock size anyway. Hope you find something that helps.

Yes!! So all socks I’ve bought are size 9-12 but he still seems to struggle
