We know, we know… some kids (boys or girls) love pink and sparkly and some kids love navy and fast stripes so it’s hard to generalize about the best shoes for boys. But we do hear over and over again from customers, “what are your best boy shoes?” and “how do you pick a shoe for a little boy who doesn’t care what the heck he puts on his feet?”
If you have ever asked yourself these questions, we’ve got a few tips — because we know boys and we are experts in shoes. We also know it’s sometimes hard to find the shoes that
- both mom/dad and your kid love
- are healthy for your kids
- are as cute as they come
And even if you have never asked yourself these questions, you still might find some useful ideas here about choosing a shoe for any kid!
How To Choose A Shoe Style
When your babe first starts to be mobile, you want to select a pair of shoes with thin, flexible soles so that your child has full mobility of the foot and especially the toes. Babies use those toes for gripping so they have to have close contact with the ground and the appropriate amount of protection.
At this stage you can probably go with designs that appeal to you and your kiddo won’t notice at all. He will be too busy cruising around clearing that mess off your coffee table…
When they get older and their feet are ready for a real shoe, they’re usually able to express their likes and dislikes and things become more complicated…
There are three factors that need to be considered when selecting a shoe: function/purpose, foot health/comfort and style.
If you have an opinionated toddler our best advice is to choose a brand that you know is healthy and well made and then let the little guy pick his style. We find that what ultimately matters is how the shoe feels. He’s not going to go for that pair of shoes day after day if they aren’t comfortable, no matter how special they look.
