Rated 5 out of 5 by from What were we thinking? So, gave our 4-yr old his first pair of hiking boots as a Christmas gift since his foot size was finally large enough for the few brands that actually offer kids sizes (thank you Vasque). We let him wear them around the house quite a bit to break them in since then. This past month we took him on his first "hike" just over one mile on the levees at Saint Marks NWR with a few water bottles in his kids size osprey pack. No more than 50 yards in he complained about his feet. Then it dawned on me that we didn't get him good socks. He was wearing some everyday cotton, and worse yet low cut socks. Luckily we had some taller socks in the car. As my wife and I stand there in our smart wool socks, we couldn't believe we had not bought any for him. Fast forward, bought a pair and all is well with the world. His feet are happier, he is happier, which means mom and dad are happier! The whole family uses smart wool products and I highly recommend all smart wool socks, I use their hiking and low cut running socks.

How long are these socks from toe to top? I'm curious how far the size XS and S would go up the leg of my 5-year-old.
