To help kids get into the spirit of the season, we rounded up a selection of festive shoes with plenty of Christmas cheer. With whimsical reindeer, Santa motifs and more, these styles have all the trimmings.
Emu Australia has a trio of holiday boots, available in both kids’ and adult sizes. The “Little Helper” style features an adorable, elf-inspired design detailed with pompoms, while the “Santa” style is decorated with a 3-D Kris Kringle face, complete with a plush wool beard. There also is an appliquéd “Reindeer” boot with a Rudolph-red nose.
Converse sweetened up its classic Chuck Taylor All Star high-top sneaker with a colorful gingerbread cookie motif, while Vans gave its popular Asher skate shoe a Yuletide twist with a playful reindeer theme.
For an even bolder holiday style statement, buy-one, give-one brand Toms has a slip-on shoe decorated with a colorful Christmas tree-lights print that glows in the dark. Just expose the shoes to natural or artificial light for 30 minutes, and you’re ready to glow.
Crocs also turned up the special effects with its red-and-green Croslite clog, accented with a string of LED tree lights along the bottom that blink and flash with every step.
