Uniform Shoes

Since my older girl is wearing a uniform, I love that I can find affordable shoes basics like the Stride Rite Claire (in black or navy) and the Stride Rite Lesley (Kid). My daughter loves how comfortable they are and I love how easy they slip on thanks to their easy hook-and-loop closure. For boys, they also offer uniform selections with the Sperry Top-Sider Miles and the Sperry Top-Sider Nathaniel.

For boys, we love the Sperry Top-Sider Cascade BootStride Rite SRT Wallaroo and the Kamik Stomp for a rainy day.
