With so many super cute sandal styles currently on the market for children, we’ve set out to find quality, wearable selections for boys and girls that not only stay put but provide optimal support and protection with sturdy, waterproof soles. “It’s important to choose sandals that have rubber soles and strong traction since kids are prone to slipping and falling,” advises Dr. Bruce Pinker, DPM, AACFAS, FAPWCA, DABPM a Board Certified Podiatrist at Progressive Foot Care. “Kids feet vary greatly in width to length ratio so choose a sandal with velcro straps that can be adjusted and secured to the foot tightly. Velcro straps are great because they allow you to tighten the sandal to prevent the foot from slipping out of it.”
Since comfort is also critical when selecting a sandal that safely fits the bill and grows with your babe’s developing feet, this roundup of structured sandal styles is made for walking, playing and hanging at the beach. Best part? They’re designed not to break the bank and last all season long!
