Kids want one thing above all else, to be able to play to their heart’s content. That’s why comfort and a secure grip are the most important criteria when choosing the right pair of girls’ shoes. The occasion and the individual taste of the little ones are equally crucial factors in deciding on the perfect shoes. Sneakers are lightweight and comfortable, while robust walking shoes are ideal for trips out into nature. Wellington boots are waterproof, which makes them perfect for grey school days. In contrast, elegant ballerinas always go well with formal outfits. Are you looking for shoes that are quick to put on and take off? Then your daughter needs shoes with a zip at the side or the tried-and-tested Velcro fastening. But first of all, you have to get the right style to get kids excited. Here, details like striking appliqués, small studs or glittering decorative stone are crucial when it comes to deciding which shoes to buy. Photo motifs are incredibly fashionable, from cartoon characters to horse motifs. And we mustn’t forget about slippers, which help to keep kids’ feet nice and warm. And of course they also have funny and decorative details.
Boots made of faux suede with a cosy synthetic lining are the perfect piece for cold days. The material is incredibly robust, easy-care and durable, making these boots ideal for rainy weather. Kids’ boots encase and protect the foot and have a high shaft to keep out the cold. Boots and lace-up ankle boots also often have outsoles with a pronounced tread, which guarantees excellent grip on both smooth and wet surfaces. However, lined sneakers are also a trendy choice for this time of year and impress kids with their cool stud details or cute decorations. For those autumn days, waterproof Wellington boots are more than enough to keep your kids’ feet warm and they are also available in lined versions. And slippers are perfect for those relaxing hours at home, because girls’ feet can get cold here too.
The sun starts to shine, flowers bloom and girls’ shoes become more airy. Glittering strappy sandals with cheery floral appliqués or lightweight thong sandals with bow details give off good vibes after the cold months. They look great with vibrant dresses and swirling skirts. Sneakers are an everyday classic and are available with breathable mesh inserts. A glittery finish or a shiny velvet finish are a favourite amongst girls and add a touch of variety to an outfit. Lightweight ballerinas in a plain-coloured or printed design can be easily combined with all kinds of looks, regardless of whether you decide to pair them with a dress or jeans.
You should always precisely measure the width and length of your daughter’s feet before purchasing a pair of shoes. A good pair of kids’ shoes should leave a space of around 12 mm at the front for the toes. That’s why it is always important to pay attention to the shape of girls’ shoes, to check whether they have a wide or narrow fit. As we have already mentioned, secure grip in a shoe is absolutely essential. This can be optimised further through the use of insoles. A flexible insert helps kids to roll their feet through when they step, and in doing so, helps them to move naturally. Another sign of quality: High-quality shoes are sewn, not glued. If you take into account all of these details and the personal taste of the little one, then the shoes you choose are sure to be a long-term favourite!
