I’m not one to invest in a million different pairs of shoes for my daughter. I believe in these formative years it’s important to have good quality footwear, not necessarily quantity. I have a couple of standby brands that have done Colette well from the time she started walking. Now that it’s warm again, out with the boots and lace up sneakers and in with the Mary Janes and sandals. Our color choice of footwear this season is silver–the perfect neutral.
Cienta: These come in a plethora of colors, but I especially love the neutral metallics (silver and gold), black sparkle or navy. They are the perfect transition shoes, as the little ones can wear them with socks leading into Spring, and without socks (so far no blisters) come warmer temps. They’re majorly cushioned, and they have a fruity yummy scent.
Saltwater: Especially when the kiddies are younger, a sandal that has a solid sole is well worth it. It cuts down on tripping and is just good for them to walk on. These were a staple last Summer (Colette wore them in gold) and this season she’ll be stepping out in them in silver. They’re adorable, durable, and come in so many different variations (with or without heart cutouts, strap thickness, etc.) and colors.
And let’s not leave out the little guys. Cienta makes adorable little boys slip on canvas sneakers (and they come in pastels for the girls too!).
