The 2011 Spring/Summer collection is full of fun colors and designs that your children will adore. The “big” girl and “big” boy shoes, for ages three through eight, range in price from about $50.00 to $70.00. The Spring/Summer collection includes sandals, slip-ons, and sneakers. None of the shoes have tie laces, which allows your kids to slip on their shoes and not have to worry about tripping on loose shoe strings.
Some of the shoes that the boys’ 2011 Spring/Summer collection boasts are Keplar and Nile. Keplar is an adorable, classic lace up style corduroy sneaker that will look great with anything in your “big” boy’s wardrobe. If you’re looking for a sandal, Nile has breathable holes, but does not lose any durability or toughness, and is made with water friendly leather, which will protect his little feet against the elements.
The girls’ 2011 collection includes adorable shoes such as Lura, Tampico, and Taffeta. The Taffeta is a muted-metallic chocolate leather shoe with subtle embroidered flowers.
