You haven’t met a playground that your kids won’t climb, jump off, or swing from. From the sandbox to the slides, the best kids shoes will survive serious play time, and (hopefully) last a season or two. We found 11 cool kicks for boys and girls of all ages. Flip through the album below to see them all.
Keen offers a wide variety of kids shoes, from sandals to snow boots, in sizes as small as 6 months, but we're crushing on the Hikeport for that hybrid hiking-book-that-fits-like-a-sneaker, essential for fall and winter play. Waterproof and lightweight, they come in four color combos (all gender neutral) and feature easy-on/off hook-and-loop closure. You can choose from sizes 8-13 in Little Kids and 1-7 in Big Kids.
