Desert boots from De Vries
I was rearranging our shoe shelf the other day, putting away summery sandals and bringing out our shoes for Autumn, and I realised I have a real thing for desert boots. I love them! Both for girls and for boys (and even for myself!). What I love about desert boots is that they're gender neutral, ...

Sturdy summer sandals from Angulus
Marlow and I left the house the other day to pick the big kids up from school and only after we arrived to the school did I realise we had forgotten her shoes! I guess that is the sign of summertime. She ran around the entire afternoon with her bare feet and never complained! Alas, ...

Angulus shoes
Angulus is a luxury Danish shoe brand I have become familiar with in the past few years. I've spotted the brand at some of my favourite children's shops in London -- Hop Like A Bunny, Notsobig and Kidsen -- but I've never bought a pair of the shoes... until recently. I got Ivy a pair ...

Clogs
Did you ever have clogs when you were a child? I did and I absolutely loved them! They made lots of noise when I walked and they made me feel tall and it was brilliant! As a lot of childhood memories, I had totally forgotten about my childhood love for clogs... until Coco was given ...

Avarcas USA
Anyone who is from Spain, has family from Spain, or has been to Spain will be familiar with Avarcas sandals. I lived in Spain for a bit when I was a teenager on a study abroad program and everyone I knew wore these sandals. I ended up buying a couple pairs and bringing them home ...

Native Jeffersons from Life & Soles
There is the slightest tinge of spring in the air here in London and all I can think about is summer!!! It's really not far away now (or at least that's what I'm telling myself)! Hopefully I'm not jinxing things by already buying summer shoes for my kids, but these Native shoes just seem like the ...

Bensimon Hi Tops from Elias & Grace
I think I have spent the past three months admiring these Bensimon hi-tops at Elias & Grace... and just this week I finally splurged and bought them for my daughter. Don't you just love the blue suede with the purple laces? So fun! There's also a low-top version with green laces which are equally cute. ...

Snook velcro sneakers
The teachers at my sons' school have asked that kids wear either slip-on or velcro sneakers. Apparently they don't love tying the laces of 20 different high-top Converse All-Stars. (Who can blame them?) But... cute velcro sneakers are difficult to find! I recently bought a pair of these Snook sneakers for my youngest son, and ...

Saltwater sandals
Growing up in Seattle, we spent every summer on the salty, rocky beaches of the Puget Sound... running around in our Saltwater sandals! Every summer we got a new pair -- I can still remember choosing the color.  Saltwater sandals are made to stand up even in salt water (hence the name) -- you can ...
