Ready, Set, Spring into Kids’ Shoes for Special Events
As the days get longer and flowers bloom, spring brings with it an air of celebration. From Easter egg hunts and Passover Seder to family weddings and graduations, spring flings abound this season and you'll need shoes for special occasions. The kids will, too.
The styles for kids' dress shoes this spring include shimmery pastels, rhinestone sparkles, and classic staple shoes for both boys and girls. Ballet flats get fancy in faux suede while little block heels let girls feel some glamor. Shoes for boys go from basic to detailed in loafers, lace-ups, and slip-on styles.
On your hunt for the best kids' shoes for formal events, let these style recommendations be your guide.
Pretty in pink with glittery bows, too, this little girls' block heel is just the thing for spring. From flower girl honors to formal gatherings, she'll love dressing up in shoes that sparkle. Functional features include the ankle strap, padded footbed for extra cushion, and rubber on the heeled sole for slip-preventing traction.
We've seen the wedge as a trend-right style in women's shoes. Now young ladies can wear them, too. Staying in the pink color palette, and with the polish of patent-leather, crisscross straps at the ankle and open toe bring detail to this design. Made with kids in mind, a back zipper allows for easy in-and-out access.
Give her a little glamor with this girls' dress heel from Nanette Lepore. Rhinestone sparkle transforms the silver-tone style into a dressed-up shoe she'll love to show off. The big-girl design comes inspired as a slip-on pump, and for the younger bunch an easy hook-and-loop strap keeps it fastened to her foot.
Ballerina style shoes for girls leave the lessons behind so she can dance her way through any spring event. BTW crafted the Elsa Ballet Flat in faux-suede fabric that dresses up the easy-to-wear design. Elasticized straps crisscross at the ankle and padded insoles cushion the foot.
Best Boys' Shoes for Spring Events
Boys dress shoes go beyond boring with these Deer Stags Wings. Vertical run-off stitching down the center of the faux-leather brings design detail to the slip-on style. Functionality is just as important so twin gore elastic offers personalized stretch in the fit.
Another Deer Stags dress style for boys' formal occasions is the Ace Dress Shoe. Stylishly retro for the boy who fashions details, the perforated faux leather recalls inspirations from wingtip or brogue designs. Lightweight and lace-up, the cushioned EVA insole and flexible outsole give comfort fit for a kid.
You can never go wrong with a loafer-inspired style, so Josmo delivers this boys' dress shoe. He can look classy and feel comfy wearing the faux leather thanks to the stretch gore for easy slip-on entry and cushioned insole for long-lasting support.
With so many kids' shoes for spring events to choose from, we think you're going to need a bigger basket.
