Until they start walking, babies don’t necessarily need to wear shoes. All that crawling requires much more knee action than foot action. But once they take those first steps, there are many different styles of kids shoes that they can wear to make fashion statements with those little feet.
Here are some of the kids shoes that you might consider adding to their wardrobe, and which pieces to pair them with:
Little ones wearing high-tops are quite adorable. They are such a funky type of shoe, so when someone small is sporting a pair, it’s a definite sight for sore eyes. These are a great pair of shoes to wear with something casual. For girls, a pair of floral high-tops, like Gotz Dolls’ Floral High-Top Shoes, would look cute with some capri pants and a girlie ruffled tank top. Boys would look precious wearing some high-tops with shorts and a polo shirt.
Another type of sneaker that is worthy of making a statement is Converse sneakers. These are casual, yet sporty, so they go well with other pieces that are also sporty. Think cargo shorts and a tee for boys, and shorts and a tee for girls. Saks Avenue sells Converse sneakers for infants and toddlers in a variety of colors.
Ankle Strap Sandals
You know that adorable sun dress your little girl has? It would look even more adorable with some ankle strap sandals, like the John Lewis Dotty Bow Sandals in Chambray. And that pair of knee length overalls that your little guy looks so sweet in? Sweeten his look with a pair of Timberland Kids Dune Buggy Sandals. The open toe, ankle strap design will keep them secure on your little one’s feet and show off those sweet little toes.
For something a bit less casual, try a stylish pair of boat shoes. They are super easy to slip on and off, and they add class to even the littlest of people’s outfits. Put your girl in a pair of dark jeans and a dressy top, or dress your boy in some khakis and a button down. Shop the selection at J. Crew to find quality, fashionable options.
Little kids are cute no matter what they are wearing, but when you put them in some statement making footwear, their cuteness factor goes way up. Not that being cute is the most important trait to have, but parents love thinking their kid is the best dressed, cutest kid in the world.
