Mother’s Day is fast approaching, and there’s no better time for mothers and daughters to share their love for each other — and for shoes.
There’s a range of footwear brands today offering companion looks for moms and their girls. While some are exact duplicates, others take elements from the adult styles and bring them to kids’ versions.
Moms need not worry, however, that these styles may be too grown-up for little ones. Footwear designers have shied away from pumps, offering more casual looks instead, so both generations can feel comfortable wearing them. Just take a look at
Tasmania-based boot brand Blundstone, that adds a feminine spin to its classic Chelsea style just for moms and their best girls.
For a weekend on the high seas, iconic boat-shoe brand Sperry offers an updated sneaker-inspired style that works on land and sea, while moccasin maker Minnetonka does its classic Thunderbird beaded style in a range of sizes that work for all ages.
Heading to a local park for an afternoon walk? Teva has you covered with styles that can easily navigate a stream or trail.
For fitness enthusiasts, there are Skechers Go Walk styles, which are part of today’s popular athleisure trend and sport cushioned insoles and flexible lightweight outsoles.
If brunch is on the agenda, Nina steps up to the plate with sophisticated wedge styles that are grown-up enough for mom but maintain their little-girl appeal, while authentic ballet brand Bloch does its version of the classic look for everyday wear.
And for those who want to go all out on Mother’s Day, pick up a mommy-and-me look from Lily Pulitzer.
