Happy Feet for Active Kids
Some kids only slow down when they're under the covers, fast asleep. Otherwise, they're on the move. Keeping a kid like this in shoes can be a challenge. Their shoes need to be well-made, comfortable and versatile, ready for backyard adventures, playground antics, classroom fidgeting, and family outings. Whole Earth has shoes for a high energy child made by some of your favorite brands. Here are a few that both kids and parents rate 'thumbs up.'
Native's Jefferson Glow Shoes are made of molded EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate) that's soft, flexible and odor resistant. The toe cup and rand glow in the dark, a favorite feature of young children! The Jefferson is also water friendly, great for creek or beach exploration or rainy days. And if the shoe takes a mud bath, you can hose it off and start over again. This slip-on shoe is easy to slide into, and is playground ready for running, jumping and climbing. You'll find the Jefferson in sizes for toddlers, kids, youth and adults, but only Glow shoes shine in the dark.
The Salomon XA PRO CSWP J is a trail running shoe that's sturdy enough for a hike and light enough for everyday wear. Salomon makes kids shoes with the same care and attention to detail found in their shoes for adults. The outsoles offer exceptional traction on a variety of surfaces, and the combination of a water resistant upper with a waterproof membrane keeps water out of the shoe while allowing the foot to breathe. The Quicklace system is a favorite with kids, allowing them to tighten or loosen the laces with a sliding buckle. There are no dangling shoelaces, and the shoe stays securely on the foot.
Have a child who doesn't want to wear shoes at all? Merrell's Bare Access Sneakers have a barefoot feel. Unlike most shoes, the toe box is wider than the heel. The outsole is thin and very flexible, protecting those precious feet, yet allowing natural movement of the toes, joints and muscles. The outsole is finished for slip resistant stability on wet or dry ground, and there's also a toe cap for added protection. The upper is made of light weight, breathable material. Your child will be happy being barefoot with shoes on…
