With summer fast approaching it’s time to start thinking about the kids wardrobes! As Marilyn Monroe said, “Give a girl the right shoes and she can conquer the world.” And the same can be said for kids. In the right shoes they can run, jump and play their way through a magical summer of fun and adventure.

The sandals

It’s not summer if you aren’t wearing sandals! The staple shoe of the season, particularly for kids, you want to look for something that gives the support their growing feet need, fits securely and allows their feet to breathe on those hot days.

For a shoe that they will be wearing for the majority of the season, you will want to ensure that the shoes fit well and aren’t going to fly off every step they take. Children’s feet are constantly growing and need the support and room in their shoes to do so. Take them in store to get them sized up and find the right shoe for them.

Clarks Magical Fun

Clarks designers have come up with a modern sports inspired take on an archive summer style. Italian leather features decorative punching for a vintage look and stitched rand detailing shows off the craftmanship. A flexible and lightweight EVA sole adds the contemporary touch and with the unique Air Spring FX technology underfoot, comfort is guaranteed. The adjustable upper features two velcro fastenings for a secure fit.

The party shoe

With all the celebrations that happen over the summer season, a party shoe is a must have! I can’t go past a patent leather or metallic shoe for girls. For boys a stylish sneaker will give a younger, funky look.
