Most Mums love to treat themselves to designer shoes, though when it comes to kids’ designer wear, buying shoes is a practical as well as fashionable choice. Many designers offer children’s collections, including shoes which withstand kids’ rough and tumble and stay in great condition. Trendy styles mean your son or daughter will be the envy of their classmates and hopefully mean they keep their footwear in good condition too!
School shoes must look smart and must remain looking presentable whatever walking to school weather you and your child encounter! Avoid man-made materials and opt for leather which can be protected with a weather-proofing spray. Mary-Jane styles are fab for girls, as they can be worn throughout the year, and the Velcro fastening makes them easy to put on and take off. Kids’ designer footwear looks good on the outside, and many brands also use technology which ensures they are comfy on the inside too. Naturino’s range of shoes have a cushioned interior and feature sand effect technology which cushions the sole of your child’s feet, meaning they stay comfortable all day.
The months will soon start to get warmer and summer will be upon us. Kid’s summer shoes need to be open enough to allow their feet to ‘breathe’, whilst still offering enough support for growing feet. Birkenstocks are an ideal choice, in either a strappy or flip-flop style design. These open styles allow fresh air to hot feet in the summer months, whilst the thick, shaped soles are robust and offer great support. The leather inner lining will also stop your child’s feet from overheating.
Whether your son or daughter is a team player in school sports, or enjoys taking part in sports at the weekend, their footwear can make a real difference. Brands like Nike are relied upon for their high quality adults’ trainers, and the same technology and style is evident in their children’s range too. Trainers with rubber studs are the perfect choice for the football pitch and styles made from man-made fabrics are lightweight and weatherproof. Nike’s children’s range is available in some fab colours including Volt yellow, eye-catching pink and electric blue which show off this year’s neon trend at its best and will be a hit with your son or daughter too.
Kids’ casual shoes must blend hardwearing materials and practicality with a smart and presentable look. Boat shoes are an ideal style for weekend footwear, as they look cute with any kid’s outfit and will never go out of fashion. Leather versions will last and look smart, and can also be worn year-round. Go for a dark colour which will not show scuffs and marks as easily and can be teamed with a casual weekend outfit and be used for occasions too.
