Kid’s grow out of shoes fast, sure....but with my boys’ sneakers at least, I’ve also found that they can get pretty gross before they’re outgrown. So I thought these new shoes from Pediped were awesome: Wash-and-wear footwear with “DRYZ” technology. Just toss them in the washing machine. They won’t shrink, fade, or otherwise suffer from it. The special insole also helps your child’s foot stay dry and cool. I think these are pretty indispensable now that muddy spring days are meeting puddle-loving little boys.
Adrian sneaker, $48, available at pediped.com.
