Kids’ summer shoes have to be versatile and play a lot of roles. Kids want them to be fun, cool and comfortable. While schools and camps typically require closed-toe shoes. Finding the balance can be hard!
Moms need them to be all.the.things – durable, quick drying and able to be worn anywhere! Shoes that can take our child from the playground, to the beach and then to family dinner at a local restaurant.
