It’s almost the end of February, which means it’s just about time for your kids to start complaining about wearing those clunky boots and heavy sneakers. And really, can you blame them? We love them, but who isn’t ready to trade in the UGGs? So before your little ones go stark raving mad about those winter shoes, surprise them with a a pair of these cool toddler shoes that are lightweight, functional, and downright cool for spring.
Tretorns are a throwback that we welcome with open arms (and feet!). The Nylite leather sneakers ($23) have a soft terry inside, which means no socks required in warmer weather.
Supergas ($51) are classic, well-made sneakers that come in lots of colors. We love this mulberry color to pair with denim and khaki in the spring.
You’re never too young for Jack Purcells to be cool. Available in a rainbow of colors (or plain white if you rather), these timeless sneakers ($35) are a perfect pick for boys and girls.
And a pick especially for little girls, try these adorable, yet functional mary janes ($43) from Spanish shoe brand Cienta Kids.
