Whether you’re heading out of town to visit family or packing up the kids and escaping to a warmer climate for some much-needed fun in the sun, spring break is just around the corner! Vacations often bring with them lots of outdoor activities, which means you need to have your little ones in shoes that are durable, fit great and offer all-around protection.
Luckily, this time of year is the last time to get a great deal on kid shoes so you can get more bang for your buck. And, with the handy Jenzy app, you can rest assured that your kiddos are wearing shoes perfectly fit for them, so they can do all the running, jumping, splishing and splashing they want on your family vacation!
Here are a few of the shoes we’ve got our eye on for spring break:
More about Our Picks:
Robeez, Wade: With a durable yet flexible sole and cushiony, polyurethane covering, this sandal is a great choice for your littlest ones. The elastic ankle and simple hook closure make taking baby’s shoe on and off a breeze, saving you precious time on your trip! The non-skid outsole is also a perfect addition for babies as they learn and explore.
Teva, Hurricane XLT: Toddlers are constantly on the go, which the Hurricane XLT embraces. With 3 (yes 3!) adjustable velcro straps around the heel, toe box and instep, your child can get a comfortable and secure fit easily. This shoe is perfect for wide feet! Moreover, this shoe has a super flexible outsole for all that climbing and racing, and a contoured design that bends to the shape of your child’s foot.
See Kai Run, Saylor: The new, Saylor sneaker from See Kai Run is the brand's first waterproof shoe built with lightweight materials, as well as a removable insole (for quick dry). The signature rubber toe cap provides added protection, as does the durable sole. Also available in pink, teal, grey, navy and army green, get ready to see this shoe on every trendy tot this season!
Bogs, Keegan Sandal: Heading to the beach has never been so easy! The Bluefish Sandal is a slip-on that provides great support to your child's little toes. However, because the toe box strap is not-adjustable, we would recommend this shoe for a child with a narrow foot. The waterproof material and flexible, rubber sole will protect your little ones as they dip their toes into the ocean for the first time!
Plae, Ty Sneaker: Little feet will love these light and flexible running-around shoes with a shock absorbing, Eco-OrthoLite® antimicrobial footbed. Our favorite feature of these shoes is that they're machine washable!
Pediped, Sahara: If adventure is calling on your trip, the Sahara will answer. With water-safe material, a hard-covered toe and Velcro straps, this shoe will have your youngster ready for whatever fun awaits the family! This shoe fits very big, however. A narrow foot will never fit in this shoe and a wide foot should absolutely be sized with Jenzy before purchasing!
Morgan & Milo, El Paso Sandal: This sandal from a women-owned, Boston-based kid shoe company is a fashionable shoe that will go with every spring-break outfit. The sleek, cut-out design is sure to keep feet cool on those super hot days, and thanks to its comfortable foot bed, the El Paso easily transitions from a day at the beach to an evening out.
Keen Kids, Seacamp II CNX: Lightweight yet durable, the Seacamp offers both comfort and protection for feet on the move. Reinforced at both the heel and toe, the shoe is sturdy enough for some serious outdoor activity, but its breezy, strappy design makes it flexible and breathable. Growing youngsters will also love the adjustable strap that they can master themselves.
Merrell, Hydro Monarch Sandal: These mesh-covered shoes bring out the best elements of a sandal and sneaker and combine them into one. With a hard sole and semi-closed concept, the Monarch is a good choice for the playground, while its breathable material and design also make it well-suited for the water park. Family trips often are unpredictable, so versatility should be the name of the game!
