With the amount of time we spend chasing our littles around, it’s no surprise their shoes don’t have a very long lifespan. We’ve found a few of the coolest place to get some mini kicks, ranging from casual wear to casual chic. (If only our children didn’t grow so fast…)
One of our favourite shoe brands TOMS is now available in Dubai with a number of slip ons, Mary Janes, glitter, canvas that’ll take your kids from the schoolyard to a wedding – and every place in between. With comfortable breathable uppers and rugged soles for endless hours of play, their boys and girls shoes for kids, available in both youth and toddlers shoe sizes, offer style the kiddos will love and the durability that us mamas want! And we love that they’ll stand up to whatever the kids throw at them and that you can chuck them into the washing machine if the going gets tough.
Price range from AED 150 to AED 299. Available at Dubai Mall, Spinneys Umm Suqeim, Mall of the Emirates.
We love to support home grown brands and especially when they produce shoes as beautiful as Allegro Child. With all the love, hardwork and time that has gone into each design and production of an Allegro, you can be assured that every pair will be the absolute best. Allegro use leather from Spain, Italy and Turkey and the soles come directly from Italy. The shoes are designed to be flexible, comfortable, light and durable. From beautiful ballerinas with soft leather soles for babies learning to walk to Valentino inspired feminine glitter sandals with a Bow at the toes and an easy velcro closure around the ankles for support. Every girl deserves beautiful shoes (mama wants them in her size).
Price range from AED 260 – AED 380. Available at Dubai Babies, Pitter Patter in Dubai Mall and Poupette A La Plage.
Living in Dubai you’re bound to own a pair or 2 of Havianas. My kids live in them and have a selection of colours, Disney characters and designs.
