10 Dressy Kids’ Shoes for a Picture-Perfect Easter

Easter is right around the corner. For many families, the holiday is a great opportunity to finally shed their winter wardrobes and step out in some fresh spring fashions. Dressing up the kids is easier than ever now that there are so many spiffy special-occasion shoe options. Modern takes on classic styles continue to dominate the market — from Mary Janes and ballet flats for girls to wingtip oxfords and derby shoes for boys. Even better, many of these looks have versatile rubber soles — forget the stiff, hard-bottomed shoes you remember from your childhood — that can take kids from church to an egg hunt with ease and comfort. To help you get a hop on your shopping, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite Easter shoe looks, below.
