12 St. Patrick’s Day Shoes for Kids

St. Patrick’s Day parades will kick off around the world on Friday, as revelers young and old celebrate the annual holiday.

Kids can show their Irish spirit by wearing green kicks in bold, shamrock-inspired shades. Also perfectly festive are gold-colored styles, which bring to mind legends of leprechauns and hidden pots of gold.

We’ve found lots of green sneakers, ideal for standing comfortably along the parade sidelines. New Balance offers its popular 574 Heritage Sport running shoe in a classic kelly-green color, while Nike updated its Free RN engineered mesh shoe with a cool, ombré effect on the upper.

Or go all out with Giuseppe Zanotti’s bold, mirror-metallic gold zippered high-top, part of the Italian designer’s ultra-luxe kids’ collection, launched last year. The unisex style, which also features gold metal hardware accents, definitely won’t get lost in the crowd.
