I got an e-mail from a reader to this site pointing out the awesome shoes in the picture. I thought it would be fun to share! Philippa writes:
I don’t know whether these velcro strap sneakers would appeal to you to add to your little guy’s wardrobe or if you know of anyone that might like to add this type of shoe to theirs, but I like them very much; they are not only comfortable but have the “rounded toebox” appearance that one generally only finds in toddler footwear.
They are made by Keen (the kids’ line), the model is called ‘Sula’ leather casual shoe and are available in other colors, too.
It is also of note that, although the shoes are a child’s size, and it is NOT because I have particularly small feet!
The sizing tends to run on the large side and the size 6 will fit a man’s US shoe size 7-7.5 or so. Another company called Geox has velcro models that tend to run large as well (I’ve a pair of brown ones) but I like these a bit more as the insole is softer/more cushioned.
And I love the little note about the socks!
“Just wanted to share 🙂 And sorry my socks don’t match-I couldn’t decide which pair to wear so I was allowed to wear one of each. Take care and thanks for such a great site!”
So what do you think? Have you found a favorite pair of shoes, or some clothing meant for ‘adults’ that feels like it suits a little one?
