The reeboks now come in 3 sizes (junior, intermediate and adult):

6. I've been using Champion super think low cut socks lately. They are the thinnest and tightest socks I can find for cheap. More durable than dress socks and don't look as weird. I did get some calluses on my ankles but no big deal. I loved my Easton skate socks but I lost one and don't want to spend $20 on another pair.
These are my $5 wigwams:
