18 Pairs of Kicks for Kids

From Child-Locating Footwear to Baller Baby Booties

— January 14, 2015 — Life-Stages
Even though children grow quickly, parents love to dress up their little ones with fashionable garments and accessories. This collection of kicks for kids is indicative of a booming industry, because -- let's face it -- tiny feet get bigger before moms' and dads' eyes.

The great diversity in styles and colors of children's sneakers enables youth to wear what looks exciting to them. The younger demographic doesn't fuss to much about what's in fashion, and they may have destroyed or grown out of their footwear before that instinct occurs.

One of the most important qualities that many kicks for kids possess is playfulness. In some of these examples, shoe doodling is encouraged; in others, interchangeable patterns are options. But whether your youngster is sporting her favorite cartoon character on her running shoes or not, they have to enable her to have fun.
