Kids Shoes: A topic all moms could talk about + a giveaway!

Dec 29, 2016


I know I am not alone when I say that I could talk about kids shoes in a very boring, lengthy conversation with other moms. I just have so many opinions on the subject. Also I feel like maybe my children are related to the Flinstones because their feet are so wide! If I had a dollar for every shoe that was flung across the house following the phrase "noooo, it's too tight" I could probably have the shoes closet of my dreams. So it should come as no surprise that I love when other moms tell me their favorite brands, and shoes that their kids will actually wear. 
Kids Shoes
My big criteria when it comes to shoes is, can my kids put them on themselves? (Obviously I help Odette, but she can get boots on, not always on the right feet but who cares). Everything just runs a little smoother if the boys can get their own shoes on, not to mention they feel a sense of accomplishment. And now that Ace can tie his own shoes (thank the parenting gods and this video). It didn't matter how many times I tried to teach him how to tie his shoes, he always got frustrated with me. He watched that video once last year and it clicked. Now he does the two bunny ear wrap around thing, but it gets the job done. BONUS he can tie Pierce's shoes if need be. 

Pierce on the other hand likes any shoes that he can get on as fast as possible. And he has the widest foot. Puma's and Native shoes are his current favs. They are wide as is, so no need to search for a different size. 

Avalon is a boot girl. Fall, winter, spring, summer....she is in boots. Any and all boots! But like the running theme of this post, the wider the better. Uggs, Hunters, and See Kai Run, are a few of our favorites. 

Odette really could careless what I put on her foot since she is more than likely going to take it off in the car. And then again once I put them back on and we get out of the car. But my favorites for her are the See Kai Run cruz shoes. 

I feel like I am constantly buying new shoes, and passing the old ones on down the line. So I would love to know some of your favorite brands, or even places that you find great deals. Leave a comment below for a chance to win a $50 gift card!

  1. My kids' favorite shoes seem to be sneakers from Skechers. I have continued to buy from them for the past couple of years.

  2. I'm with you in that my favorite shoes are ones they can put on themselves. As far as my kid goes, she'd happily wear her ratty Frozen sneakers day in and day out until they fell off her feet.

  3. Okay okay okay. So my kids all inherited their father's hobbit feet. They have walked to mordor and back and frodo baggins he most certainly is. It's awful. I always have to go a size up!!

  9. I love something that is affordable and lasts a while. Shoes that my kids can easily put on themselves are a plus! Sketchers are what I prefer.

  15. I love Target as well! Ours is under a major renovation right now and I can’t wait to visit once it’s done. Right now it’s kind of a mess and hard to find things…but I know it will be worth it. Those flip flops are adorable! I almost always buy shoes in the kids department – both girls and boys section! kids shoes online
