      Very helpful



      Nice for occasional wear only

      Mothercare Baby Trainer Liners are a kind of mini sized take on the adult trainer type socks you can buy. They are something that work well if you allow your child to wear baby soft shoes as we have at times, but can also be used with the firmer type of mini adult style trainers.

      In terms of cost these can be bought for around £4 to £5 for a multi pack of teeny tiny multicoloured Trainer Liners, which works out at a minimum of 80p and a maximum of £1 per sock for a pack of 5. Designs are varied and colours are too, with there being a very simple and clean looking arctic white shade set that we had, to more funky brighter tones to suit boys or girls.

      I have to say that the Mothercare Baby Trainer Liners do not cover much above the foot and mid ankle level, so may not suit every outfit and certainly won't go with every type of baby shoe either. The shoes that seem to keep these on best are the more solid types which I don't like much, although you can use these well enough with the soft touch shoes that mimic real trainers quite effectively.

      When just putting the Mothercare Baby Trainer Liners on without other foot wear we have had mixed results. Very often we have found that these can come off with a little bit of wriggling and kicking, which all babies and toddlers seem to have down to a fine art. This can be annoying as you end up losing socks all over the place, although buying several in the same colour can mean that at least you can still match them up with other lonely pairless socks if needed.

      The socks we have had did have a good amount of elastic around the cuff area and also contained some lycra for a more springy and supple fit. Some of the socks even have a slightly higher back to them with a low front profile which is meant to give a better over all fit although we haven't tried those. The socks are a cotton/ polyamide mix which give them durability when washed and worn.

      Sizes are from 12.5 to 3.5, going up to size 9 to 12, with a 4 size range in the funky coloured socks. The lovely white plain Trainer Liners also come in 4 sizes, from newborn to 24 months and these do work out at good value as a set of 5 is just £3.50 or 70p per pair. We liked these as any sock that had lost its pair could be easily matched with another, as if your baby hasn't kicked off one or two and lost them, then the washing machine will always manage to consume a few somehow along the way.

      To give the Mothercare Baby Trainer Liners a rating I feel they ought to get 3 stars. They do wash well enough but can shrink a bit and the fit seems about right with plenty of toe and heel room for small tootsies to wiggle about in. The socks seem well made and we didn't have any holes in them, but they can and will be kicked off it worn without any form of soft fit shoes. They do look very sweet when on, but are more of a fashion item to mimic mum and dads grown up trainer socks rather than a sensible pair to wear for every day use.
