Your children can put their best foot forward in these spring shoes.
Garden Sandals for Girls
See Kai Run’s sandals are lovely for girly-girls ages 6 months to 3 years. The flower-buckled Gillian shoe is perfect for the playground, while the ruffly Merrilee style, in pink or sunshine yellow, would be sweet with a sundress. Sizes 3-9, $42.
Boat Shoes for Boys
We bet Dad probably owns a style similar to Sperry’s Bluefish Shoe, a traditional leather-laced boat shoe for boys. A good transition shoe, the sturdy style works with long khakis or can be worn casually with shorts as the weather warms up. Toddler sizes, $45. Youth sizes, $55.
