Hey guys! I’m a longtime fan of Kawaii Kids and love hunting through their new arrivals for stylish gems to add to my wardrobe. This month, I snapped up a pair of the Little Dude High Tops, which have recently made their return to the shelves after a sellout season in winter 2015. You can choose from four colours (red, black, green, and pink) in sizes to fit 1 through to 10 years of age. We opted for red, to enhance matching with our winter wardrobe, which is filled with lots of white, blue, and charcoal. Check out our review below, or shop for children’s shoes at Kawaii Kids.
There are several things I like about the Little Dude High Tops, starting with the bold, bright colours and funky contrasting lining (with fold down tops). I was a little bit concerned when these arrived that I might have a hard time getting them on my little man’s chubby feet, as they don’t have a zip on the side. However, the laces are made from stretchy elastic, and with a bit of wiggling, we were able to achieve a snug fit.
The velcro around the ankle is really handy for wear with toddlers, as it keeps these shoes on their feet. I have a lot of trouble in this area, as my boy is a Shoedini… but we managed to wear these all around a shopping centre without a single slip/kick/pull off incident. The soles are grippy, which is another plus, and these shoes look really cool with leggings, jeans, and harems.
The verdict… street-cool styling for kids
