A Hipster Rant on Boys Shoes

Well as we all know kids are tough on their shoes and being a mother of a boy, boys shoes just aren't all that fun. I've found myself searching for new types of shoes but always seem to come back to a few great brands; Toms (thank you Blake Mycoskie), Vans, and Reefs. Our Hipster has worn many types of shoes including the not so fashionable but oh so wearable Crocs, and dress up Sperry Top Siders. I found that Converse are cool looking but a major pain to get on a little one's foot and Pedipeds are just practical for the learning to walk stage since they are soft soled. I LOVE the look of Livie and Luca and would definitely splurge on a pair but honestly the classic slip on Vans in black and white checker or the high top black Vans with velcro strap are the go to shoes for us. See Kai Run is another great brand we have thought about purchasing but just haven't gotten around to it yet. Around Christmas time I tried to find a pair of cool moccasins but had trouble finding his size. I know for Fall I'm definitely investing in some little guy moccasins for Hipster Baby to sell because they seem versatile for moms of boys and for the little ones themselves. And since spring/summer is almost here the only sandal our guy will be wearing is the Reef's Grom Leather Sandal (that comes with an elastic back for little ones) or the not so cute classic Crocs in dark blue or black. What are your go to shoes for your little one?
