Types of Canvas Footwear for Kids

Canvas shoes are a great option to have in your kids Spring and Summer wardrobe, and at Lelli Kelly Shop we have a wide range of different canvas shoes to choose from.

What are canvas shoes?

Canvas shoes are a basic casual shoe, simply constructed with canvas uppers and usually rubber soles. They are the perfect low maintenance shoe that can quickly be put on and taken off.

At Lelli Kelly Shop, we have a variety of canvas shoes, with a wide range of different colours and designs that are perfect for the upcoming warmer months.

Are canvas shoes good for toddlers?

Canvas shoes are great for toddlers since it is a breathable, yet supportive material. Since canvas is a natural material, not synthetic, shoes made from it allow your toddlers feet to breathe and prevent the chance of sores or blisters on their feet.

Canvas is also extremely lightweight and flexible, making them ideal for young children to move around. The rubber soles that usually come on canvas shoes are flexible, encouraging more natural movement.

Should kids wear canvas shoes?

Yes, if you’re looking for a good pair of shoes for your kids this Spring and Summer, look for canvas shoes.

Canvas is extremely versatile and easy to clean thanks to the nature and style of canvas shoes. They also retain their shape extremely well, since the fabric doesn’t stretch easily.

We also have a guide on how to clean canvas shoes to help you take good care of them.
