May the Force be with your kids’ feet

Can you feel it? There’s been a great disturbance in the world of footwear, as if millions of Ewok-sized voices had just cried out in excitement: “Mommy, those shoes breathe like Darth Vader!” The Star Wars by Stride Rite Vader Light & Sound shoe is the closest you’ll come to having the Dark Lord of the Sith over for meatloaf. Available in toddler sizes 8.5 to 12 and kid sizes 12.5 to 3, both in narrow or wide, each shoe is made of leather and mesh with an easy hook and loop closure under Vader’s mask. With the press...

I promise not to wear other sneakers. I promise not to wear other sneakers. I promise not to…

If your kids are suddenly behaving just a little too politely for your liking, we’ve got just the remedy. In the form of this awesome new collaboration between Converse and The Simpsons. The new Simpsons Converse Collection for kids and adults will be available on the site starting Saturday, so mark your calendars, Groenig worshippers. There are three awesome designs on the Chuck Taylor All-Stars: one featuring Homer in a d’oh moment, one with Bart at the chalkboard he’s been hovering over for the last 25 years (!!), and one featuring the whole family with all the secondary characters...

Bensimon kids sneakers + Bakker made with love = Beautiful!

My love for Bensimon sneakers is no secret; I wear my own purple pair almost every day. And the kids’ styles are simply adorable. So when their new style collaboration with Bakker Made With Love, well my only wish, after I recovered from the cuteness overload, was that they came in my size.  The new Bakker Made With Love Bensimon sneakers are the perfect little back to school shoe that transitions well from summer playdates to school playgrounds. The reinforced rubber toe is a must for active little ones, and the cotton canvas fabric is hearty and breathable. And since they’re...

Well Helloooo, Kitty

I have a thing for Hello Kitty (as you may well know) and I also have a thing for Vans. [see more awesome kicks after the jump!] The collection of Hello Kitty Vans Sneakers for kids is adorable, as you’d expect, but I think what I like more is that they’re available in women’s sizes too–provided you’re amply ironic enough to pull them off. (Hint: not with mom jeans.) I’m not sure that I fit that description, so I’ll just be happy watching my girls skip down the street wearing these classic low-top lace-ups. It makes me very happy...

Comic Cons

Let’s face the facts: you might be Supermom to your kids, but you can’t drive a Batmobile. Most of us don’t want to be seen in Catwoman’s black leather suit. And, much to my personal dismay, Christan Bale has yet to show up at my door, caped or otherwise. Fortunately, you can now own your own, customized chunk of the Batman legacy. And you can wear it, too. The new custom DC Comics Converse sneakers just launched, and there’s an entire world of superhero (and supervillain) action waiting to happen– on your feet. Or your kids’ feet, if they’re...

Umi kids shoes go sporty. And we likey.

Ever since discovering Umi shoes, my kiddos and their long, narrow feet live in their sandals all summer long. But now they’ve added a new sport line which I’m completely in love with. Once you see how fab they are, you will be too. I admit that discovering the new UmiSport kids shoes are completely machine washable is a big seller for me. And that they come with a removable anti-bacterial footbed that will help keep your kids’ feet stay fresh and dry. (I’m not the only one with a stinky, sweaty-footed kid, right?) But really, I’m impressed that...

Boys like cute shoes too. Even if they don’t call them cute shoes.

Every time I go shoe shopping for my son I feel like I’m swimming in a sea of flashing sneakers. Then I remember to check one of my favorite kids’ shoes purveyors Livie and Luca and voila, I find cool shoes that won’t double as a night light. The Ten Browns are a fabulous loafer and sport shoe combination, which makes it super versatile for your active boys who need something they can run around in at the playground but still wear for school or even more special occasions. And the soft leather and padded soles work well for...

Introducing Kai from See Kai Run. And not a sparkle in sight.

Shoe shopping for my kiddos is more like a scavenger hunt for simple, classic styles without any bling or flashing lights. As much as they’d prefer to glow in the dark, I’m pretty sure they’ll be just as happy and way more comfortable in this brand new older kid collection from CMP fave See Kai Run. The new Kai collection hits the sweet spot for my older kids (ages 3, 5, and 7) with more grown-up versions of their super popular shoes. And while there aren’t a ton of styles to choose from, I bet you’ll be as happy...

The perfect fall shoe for the grayer days ahead

Even though school days are starting up, it will be a while before my kids will need their new cords and warm sweaters. But the slightly cooler days mean it’s time for my girls to toss off their worn-out flip flops and tuck their toes into something a bit more fall-worthy. And I’m practically drooling over these comfy kicks from CMP favorite Morgan & Milo. Alas, my children have have inherited their father’s big feet and can’t cram their toes into the Avril Mary Janes, but I’m hoping someone younger I know will buy these shoes just so I...

Say goodbye to shoelaces, kids.

If I can give you a tip in the sneaker trend department, it’s that laces are going away. Not in favor of Velcro, but in favor of nothing at all. I’m seeing lots of plain, unlaced eyelets, all preppy boat-shoe style. So cool. If you’re a Converse fan, you’ll like the new All Star Simple Slip sneakers in seven swell colors.You’ll get all of the on-and-off easiness with none of the struggle. They start in toddler size 2, so even your pre-walker can look snazzy this spring. For bigger kids, I happen to adore what long-time fave Umi shoes...
