Shoe shopping for kids is a fine balance between what kids want and what the parents see as practical and affordable. Our range of Sun & Sand Sports picks of kids’ shoes lets those little personalities (and feet) grow, and they’re made from top quality materials that are guaranteed to get the parental seal of approval.
Whatever they get up to, there’s a shoe for them:
Liked the clip? You’ll be pleased to know that where there’s fashion, there is also function. We break it down for you, the parents, and show how your kids’ favourite shoes definitely serve this dual purpose.
Whether your child is confident or a little shy, any kids’ shoes that have prints, colours or animations create a fun buzz of personality for their look. The adidas Originals Kids Stan Smith 360 Shoe is boldly-coloured, but they’ll never know that it doubles up as a super-cushioned shoe, with FitFOAM and plenty of flexion in the springy outsole to support healthy, growing feet.
When shoes need to be changed quickly, anything with easy closures such as Velcro is the go-to, such as the Vans Kids Style 23 V Shoe, which also gives them a custom fit – perfect for feet that are constantly changing size. The Timberland Kids Toddler Tracks Fisherman Sandals are also a Velcro option with a breathable structure and handy “Does It Fit?” guide.
Children like to run, however there’s always a risk of trips and falls. The Vans classic vulcanised rubber waffle outsole does wonders for adults, so it’ll do the same for your kids in terms of traction in the Vans Kids Checkerboard Slip On Shoe.
No matter the cost, it’s great to buy the best materials for the simple fact that your child is much more comfortable. The Jordan Kids Air Jordan 3 OG Retro Black Cement combines quality, leather uppers and a strong heel counter to protect your children from ankle rolling and the Nike Kids Kyrie 4 Basketball Shoe integrates Zoom Air cushioning to prevent any aches and pains when they jump and impact the ground.
For every personality, there’s a shoe. For every shoe, a functionality. Give them a trendy, comfortable shoe for all their growing and activity needs in the Sun & Sand Sports Kids’ Lifestyle range today.
