Why should the smallest among us have to miss out on style and functionality? With the Merrell Toddlers Nova 3 Jr Shoes, they get that and more. The textile upper supports breathability and the anti-stink lining prevents unwanted smells. A non-marking outsole helps those still trying to establish their stride from tumbling on outdoor terrain. The alternative closure offers a snug fit while allowing little hands to learn how to take them on and off. Whether that feature is beneficial depends on the situation, but they have to learn sometime, right?
