Figuring out where to find sandals for toddlers is no problem during the summer months. However, once the weather gets bit of chill in the air, sandals disappear from most merchants shelves, making them tougher to find. Whether you are looking for sandals during the summer, winter or fall, the guide below will help you find the perfect pair for your little one.
Children’s Clothing Stores
When looking for kid’s apparel, the first place to visit should be a children’s clothing store. These merchants carry clothing for kids of all ages from newborn infants to those in their tween and teen years. Such stores include The Children’s Place, Gymboree, Justice and Carters. At Gymboree, for instance, the Stripe Flip Flop costs $16.95. It is a multicolored slipper with a pink bow and is perfect for a toddler girl to wear to the beach.
Family Clothing Stores
While stores like Gymboree carry items specifically for children, other stores like the Gap, Old Navy, H&M and Abercrombie & Fitch, carry clothing for the entire family. As such, these stores have larger amounts of merchandise and are therefore a great place to find the sandals your toddler needs and will love. One such pair is the Faux-Leather Flip-Flop available at Old Navy stores for $12.94. It comes in a light and darker shade of brown and features an expandable strap at the back to keep the sandals on your toddler’s feet.
The introduction of department stores in the 1800s transformed the way Americans shopped for the tings they needed, taking purchasing from being a chore to being an experience. The tradition continues today with department stores continuing to entice millions to shop there everyday. One major department store that can be found across the country is Kohl's and it carries several items for toddlers. These include the Newtz sandals. Priced at $19.99, they are rubber sandals that come in purple and pink for toddler girls wearing toddler sizes seven through 10. The sandals are sold exclusively online at Kohls.com. Other department stores such as Macy’s, Nordstrom, Dillard’s and Lord & Taylor also carry sandals for children both in their brick and mortar locations and at their e-stores.
Shoe stores are another excellent place to find sandals for your toddler. Many of the larger ones stock hundreds of brands for you to choose from. They include DSW, Off Broadway Shoes, Rack Room Shoes and Famous Footwear. DSW sells the Gidget Youth Wedge Sandal that any young girl who frequently wears her mom’s wedge shoes would love. Manufactured by Mia, the sandals cost $29.95 and are made in black. They are gladiator-style, open toe shoes. The wedge heel is only half an inch high and thus not inappropriate for a very young girl. Another shoe store option is Stride Rite, which only sells shoes for children and has been doing so since 1919. With locations across the country, the company sells several sandals, such as the Top-Sider Gibson by Sperry. It costs $47 and is made from crisscutting straps of brown leather.
Internet shopping continues to grow in frequency because it is convenient and in many cases, cheaper than shopping at traditional stores. In addition to the online shops of the stores mentioned above there are many reputable online merchants from whom you can find sandals for the toddler in your life. Consider 6pm.com, Overstock.com, Zappos.com and Endless.com. All four carry plenty of shoes for children. At Endless.com, you can find the Shirley Sandal by Crocs. They are a modern take on jelly sandals and come in five color combinations. They cost between $16.90 and $27.99 depending on the color you select for your toddler girl.
