The Best Holiday Shoes for Kids

The Best Holiday Shoes for Kids

When it comes to going away, every parent wants a no-fuss holiday with no complications and no complaints. The main factor that results in naughty children, after being hungry, is wearing uncomfortable shoes.

We don’t want this to ruin your holiday, which is why we have created a list of our top picks for children’s holiday shoes to suit your every need.

What should I look for in childrens’ summer shoes?

Trying to find the perfect pair of shoes for your child this summer comes down to your preference and what types of holidays you’re planning, from being by the pool to adventuring 24/7 whilst camping. It can also come down to what you want to get out of the shoe, its longevity, the style, fit and comfort and the material.

Our top holiday footwear picks for kids

It is our priority to make sure that your children's feet are comfortable whilst being supported and protected, especially when on holiday to ensure that you don’t get a headache from complaints about sore feet.

Below are our top picks for each type of summery shoe from sandals to summer rain shoes.

Best everyday summer shoes

To give your child an extra sparkle through summer and on their holiday, Lelli Kelly’s Ibiza Espadrille Shoes are the perfect choice. They are ultra-lightweight and use a lace fastener. These shoes come in both white sparkle colour and a light blue sparkle colour. The footbed is padded which provides extra comfort all day long. The espadrille section runs just above the sole unit all the way around, which gives even more style.

As a child, holidays bring freedom, which means a lot of running around and exploring. With this in mind we have chosen the Glenda Rosa Shimmer Adjustable Trainers to fit perfectly into this list. These stylish looking trainers have a hook and loop strap with elastic laces that don’t need tying, which allows for easy slip on and off no matter the task at hand. The shoe features a super lightweight material which shimmers and sparkles, and can lighten anyone’s holiday. They also come with a free Lelli Kelly unicorn headband!

Best sandals for kids

With their pale blue colour and pink floral design, the Bianca Sandals top the list. Both straps on the shoe are adjustable, but each quite differently. The front strap has a buckle to fasten the shoe, whereas the back strap has a fake buckle design for extra style, which is actually a hook and loop fastening to make putting the shoe on much easier. The whole sole unit is contoured and has extra comfort giving extra traction, support and comfort to make the most of those long summer days.

Best shoes for an active summer

The Silbilla Black Trainers are a perfect choice for being active during summer. The easy slip on/off hook and loop fastening ensures that once your child is done playing outside, they can easily take off their shoes so they are not tracking dirt inside.

The mesh material helps keep feet cool and fresh throughout the day. These trainers are machine washable, so if your child puts them through their paces, the shoes can come out of the washing machine and look brand new. Once purchased, you will also get a free pair of Lelli Kelly socks.

Best summer rain boots for kids

During a British summer, there will be nice sunny days, but as we’re in the UK there is a guarantee that this sunshine won’t last and the rain will soon come. In preparation for this, we have added the White Floral Wellies to this list. These wellies are perfect for those rainy day adventures. Even if the weather stays sunny for a while, they will be perfect to go and visit a petting farm or zoo, or even to go river walking.

Cutest summer shoes

The simple and stylish Stella Pumps have to be the cutest shoes for summer. These mainly pink pumps will have all your friends asking where to get them with their dazzling rhinestones on the front tongue. For easy on/off there are two elastic side panels. The extra padded sole gives for all day comfort whilst still giving you ultimate style.
