(Extremely inconsequential) confession: My 3-year-old doesn’t have great clothes. We bought most of them from garage sales. But you know what he does have? Cool shoes.
But our choice of the Converse All Star Simple Sneaker wasn't an aesthetic one: These function better than any other pair of kids shoes we have tried in the span of his small life.
We looked high and low, and we bought, all in all, probably 12 pairs of shoes before we found these little miracles.
The true magic is in the Velcro: It's on the outer side of the tongue, and it’s hidden.
I assure you, these will be one of the easiest things you ever buy for them. And you will both look cooler for it.
Get them from Nike for $35 or Zappos for$34.95 (available in sizes 2–10 and in two colors).
