10 cool shoes for toddlers + kids

10 fitted for kids shoes

Jenna Templeton takes a look at the latest kids shoe collective that’s here to help put our children’s best foot forward. 

When I was a kid, it was important to find the correct shoes to support my feet. Every few months, my mum would take me to my local shoe store to get my feet measured on that interesting metal measuring device (why was it always so cold!?). After a good measure, we’d look at all the practical shoe options. On most occasions, we’d leave the shop with a fresh box of sensible black Mary Jane style shoes. While I did appreciate my parents caring for and nurturing my growing tootsies, I really would have liked something a bit different. Something colourful with a little sparkle (hello glitter shoes!).

The online boutique Romper Stomper, who make both children and their parents happy by offering comfortable, non-toxic, breathable shoes, would have been ideal.

Romper Stomper’s international collective of gender-neutral footwear includes lots of exciting brands such as Ralph Lauren, Vans (I adored my pair that saw me through many years of skateboarding), MAÁ Shoes from Spain and Donsje from Amsterdam.
