My kids recently got what I think might just be the perfect summer footwear: Native Shoes. These shoes are ideal for spray parks and boardwalks, and are sneaker-like enough for playground climbing and running around. They're also extremely light, which is important if you're the one carrying them in backpacks and suitcases for summer traveling.
Native Shoes boasts three styles for kids, all of which are slip-on, waterproof, washable, odor resistant, and made with animal free fabrics and materials.
Colors are fun and vibrant, and include Hollywood Pink, Regatta Blue and Torch Red. Expect to pay about $35 for a pair for the kiddos. We pick the Jefferson as our favorite.
And if you find yourself wanting a pair for yourself? Don't worry, Native Shoes come in five adult styles, too.
A note on sizing: Native shoes are offered in whole sizes only, and tend to run big. If you are between sizes, the company recommends sizing down.
Momtrends was not compensated for this post - my daughters' Native shoes came via Grandma via Babesta.
