The Fourth of July is just days away, and with it comes thoughts of celebrating the occasion by wearing red, white and blue.
While taking the flag theme literally may not suit everyone’s style, there are plenty of footwear options, especially for kids, that allow them to express their patriotic spirit. Shoe companies offer lots of styles in a red, white and blue color palette that can be worn all summer long and well into the fall.
For those who want to do some serious flag-waving, there are fun options that incorporate Old Glory. Converse does its classic Chuck Taylor in a stars-and-bars design, while Vans “Free Flag Authentic” takes its classic laceup and adds some stars and stripes.
In the sneaker world, Puma does the “Roma Basic” in a tri-color scheme for both boys and girls.
Keeping things light is Native, with its signature “Jefferson” slip-on in EVA, in baby through toddler sizes.
If setting sail is on the day’s itinerary, Sperry’s “Cruz” boat shoe for boys is detailed in denim fabric.
Taking a cue from the adult market, Akid marries a running shoe with a bootie for a hybrid look.
And since holiday festivities may include dressing up, Nina does a denim gingham wedge sandal for girls.
