Thoughts for Thursday: My Favorite Infant and Toddler Boys Shoes

As you know I love shopping for my boys and baby/toddler boy shoes are some of my favorite things to buy!  Like with all things pertaining to little boys fashion good cute shoes can be hard to find! I old fashioned in that I don't really like traditional shoes on babies until 6 months (shoes with hard soles). I am also little picky with baby shoes and now that I have two boys who can share down the road I've been investing in quality shoes that I know will last for both of  them. I buy most of the boys shoes at Zappos, Amazon, Nordstrom, and Target.

I've rounded up my favorites for you below:

I had a pair of these when Miller was 5 months old and they were perfect for winter. They are so soft, warm, and squishy so they are soft on baby's feet.

 I was lucky enough to win a Freshly Picked giveaway last spring so Miller got his first pair of mocs  in sand suede! They were so perfect for crawling and scooting around outside that I bought him another pair when his feet grew and he started walking. We went with the weathered brown next and they held up through major wear and tear over the summer and are still looking good. I ended up picking up another pair with their sale last week and got Matthew a pair in glacier. I think they will be fun for summer!

 I love these crib shoes for babies.  First of all the have the cutest designs and are so comfy on their feet. Matthew has a few pairs thanks to Miller that he's been wearing around outside now that he's mobile. 

This sandals above for babies and below for toddlers/kids are my favorite summer sandal. My husband calls them Jesus sands but I think they are adorable with shorts and jon jons. I love how think the sole is and I feel like they have to be comfortable for the boys. Miller loves wearing them and I picked up Matthew a matching tan pair for this summer.  I think the See wees run big and the surfers run true to size.

We are on our third pair of Toms because we love them that much! I just buy the next size up once Miller outgrows them. These are so easy to slip on and we even wore  them with socks and pants during the winter. Toms does half sizes so make sure to try the half size up before buying a pair.

My parents gave these to Miller for Easter and he loves them. At first I didn't love them but the fact that they can get wet, muddy, dirty, and just be rinsed off is pretty awesome. 

We don't own these yet but they are on their way to our house. I've been dying to get a pair for Miller this year and finally broke down and bought  them. Everyone  raves about them so I hope they live up to the hype.

I picked these up at Target for Miller when we were desperate for a new pair of shoes and they've been great. Nice and affordable adidas knockoffs

I had a pair of Nike's for Miller last year and they were one of our favorite tennis shoes. He loved the bright colors and this year he picked out the orange pair above. They can get pricey but I got last years at the Nike outlet and this year I got them on major sale at Kohls.  

My sister gave these New Balances to Miller for his first birthday and they were a hit. We ended up having the tie version because I didn't know better but I suggest velcro for all squirmy toddlers.

Miller and Matthew can't be from Annapolis and not own a good pair of boat shoes! Sperry top siders are our favorite and again I snagged these at the outlets for half price. I would say they run big.

How adorable are these Target slip ons? I love them!! I just ordered this online so I'm waiting for them to arrive but I love the tan for only $17 they're not going to break the bank and will look adorable with shorts and polos.

 I had an  awesome pair of hand me downs from my sister in law that were a European brand and so far these footmates ones are the closest I can find in quality and look. We wore these all winter long and  loved  them for special occasions and church.

The saddle shoe is one of my absolute most favorite looks on a little boy, especially with knee high socks. The best part is that is how my mother in law dressed Kyle and all his brothers so she loves this look on my boys.  I know it's not for everyone but I'm all about dressing them like a baby for as long as possible.  We have the navy pair and save them for church and special occasions.

These are my  favorite special occasion shoes for infants and pre-walkers. Miller had these and they have now been passed onto Matthew. I just love how sweet they look dressed up with these on.

So there you have it! My long exhaustive list of boys shoes. I told you I had a little obsession love for boys shoes.  Are there any shoes you put on your boys? Any ones I should know about that I don't?

  1. Those little Nike's!! Gah these kids of ours are seriously spoiled just last night I saw the receipt for my Freshly Picked moccs I bought P (on sale) shook my head and thought, these were the same price as my brand new sneakers. Cray!

  2. I love those little toms and sperrys!

  3. Love toms!! Also, you should check out pediped and naturino if you haven't already. They are the most comfy/really conforms to the kids' feet well. Amazon has some great deals on them from time to time. You've inspired me to do a girls' version!!

  4. I love how classic so many boys shoes are versus the flashy/sparkly/light-up options that seem to prevail for girls! I put both my girls in those Sperry's because they have Velcro (vs the baby girl that are tie!?!?). They also live in their saltwater sandals year after year. I love that they can be dressed up or down and can get wet at the pool/beach/random puddle! Does l'amour make boys shoes? I swear by those for school and fancier occasions/church. Pass down wonderfully through kids!

  5. Eek! Yes, thank you for sharing this! Bookmarked! I can't wait to put my little man in Toms and Natives!

  6. I love Natives! I bought Parker a pair about a month ago and we get so many compliments.

  7. Precious shoes! My son had almost every one of those except Toms. He is 8 now so I don't remember kids wearing Toms when he was little. My 4 year old daughter lives in them and when she isn't wearing Toms she is wearing those sandals in white or gold :)
    Have a great weekend!

  8. I think you covered every shoe style! There's two you recommended that I've been wanting to try - I'll have to look for them this summer! I love pedipeds for little feet! My kids tend to wear them or RileyRoos from age 1-2.

  9. Thank for this post useful informative!
