    By Mia Weber

    In a walking city like New York, it’s all about sneakers. So whether your little ones lace up, slip on, or Velcro before they step and schlepp, we have five fabulous suggestions for where to get started.

     


    Fun with Perry the Platypus:
    In a brand new collaboration with the Disney Channel’s hit kids’ show Phineas and Ferb, iconic skater shoe brand Etnies is offering up a super cool line of new sneakers for fall. Fans of the cartoon will love these bold kicks emblazoned with the show’s character Perry the Platypus, while style savvy kids will delight in the trendy teal hue.

    Kickin’ with Kitty:
    Add some brightness to the gray days of fall and winter with the perpetually cheery face of Hello Kitty splashed across this adorable pair of canvas low-tops from Vans. With the VANS x Hello Kitty Authentic Lo Pro: Collage sneakers, your little one is ready for everything from P.E. class to playdates!

    Sneaking with Seuss:
    Have a young reader in the house? Let them bring their love of classics like Dr. Seuss’ “One Fish Two Fish” to the playground. We’re loving this sweet pair of sneakers from Converse All Star. Sturdy canvas makes them perfect for outdoor adventures, while smiling fishies add an element of mischief!
