The Best Kids’ Shoes for Spring & Summer Adventures by See Kai Run

Spring is finally here and the kids are ready to play! Time to pack up your winter boots, shed a few layers and enjoy the sunshine. Also time to buy some new shoes for your kids. Chances are that your kids’ feet have grown since last season and the playground is patiently waiting.

See Kai Run’s Spring and Summer 2018 collection is exactly what you need. With fun color combinations, comfortable fabrics and machine-washable materials, all made with impeccable quality that will last season after season; these shoes are not only perfect for now, but also make great hand-me-downs.

Our kids happily put a few pairs of sneakers, sandals and water-friendly shoes to the test, and we are happy to report that whether you’re headed to the park, the beach or the splash pad, you are going to love See Kai Run!

We know how easy it can be to get swept away by the latest trends. However, when it comes to our kids’ shoes, it’s more important to buy shoes that are comfortable and supportive, allowing for the promotion of healthy toe growth with plenty of wiggle room.

See Kai Run offers just that. They completely get that kids’ shoes should be fun. Kids should feel free to run freely and play hard. Their shoes should never slow them down. With adorable styles  designed to go with any outfit, their super flexible rubber soles help the development of healthy feet.


We think every little boy (or girl) should have a classic pair of RED canvas sneakers and the Stevie II fits the bill. These classics are the perfect shoe for everyday play, and designed for comfort with a padded collar and flexible sole.  Whether you’re taking a trip to the park, or a walk around the block where he can let loose and run, he’ll be able to tackle whatever spring and summer throws his way, all while remaining classically cool.

For your girl, sparkle her up with See Kai Run’s Kya classic high-top sneaker with whimsical colors and fun jersey multi mix print to match any outfit.

The dual adjustable straps make these shoes fit perfectly each time your daughter slips them on, while the flexible rubber sole gives your girl enough traction and support to make it to the top of the playground effortlessly.


In addition to a solid pair of sneakers, every child should have a pair of sandals.

If your girl loves pink and flowers, See Kai Run’s Olivia in hot pink is her must-have shoe for spring and summer. These buttery-soft classic leather, adjustable strap sandals with pretty 3D flower detailing, flexible rubber soles and slip-resistant grid treads will take your daughter from church to the playground in no time at all, with both style and sensibility built right in.

Of course, there’s no reason to stop at just one pair of sandals for your girl. She should have multiple pairs of sandals to suit her wardrobe. We love that the Camila in silver is a feminine twist on a classic fisherman style sandal. For all the girls that hate having a thong between their toes and need the comfort of a closed-toe shoe, these are just perfect.

The Camila features a generous width and a wide toe box for extra wiggle room, adjustable hook and loop closure, breathable leather insoles and lining, and flexible rubber sole that provide just the right amount of comfort and support to withstand hours of twirling.

Keeping with the theme of the “fisherman” sandal, the Jude III is the perfect pair of sandals for tiny and growing little boy feet.

The 100% durable hand-stiched leather upper is hand-stitched, and connects to a rubber sole, so that it will easily hold up to muddy puddles and ponds like a champ. The leather on this shoe (and all of their shoes) is buttery soft and smooth, while the padded collar and adjustable hook and loop closer ensure a customized, comfortably tight fit every time. You won’t ever have to force a pair of See Kai Run shoes onto a kid- even the pickiest of kiddos love them!


Whether you go to the beach, spend a day at the splash pad or find a good puddle, every kid loves to get wet. And while we fully support a bare foot in the sand, we also agree that every child needs a good pair of water-friendly shoes to fully enjoy those activities.

The Saylor (featured here in navy for boys and pink for girls) is one of See Kai Run’s best shoes for summer. While it’s fully functional as a lightweight sneaker, it’s also made of water-friendly mesh designed for any and all summer activities.

The sides and the tops of the shoes are mesh and completely breathable while still protective. The construction is excellent, sewn with darling stitches, and composed of all water-friendly materials. They easily go on and off with a simple hook and eye strap, while the elastic white laces help keep the shoes securely on your child’s feet during their adventures on land or sea.

So enough about shoes, time to get out there and enjoy this beautiful weather. With the right pair of sneakers, sandals and water shoes, your kids will love how good they feel, and you will love how well your kids’ shoes stand up to the playground!
