Fall is upon us, and that means time to buy new shoes for our little ones. Whether your child is starting preschool for the very first time or is a seasoned pro headed off to third grade, Nina Shoes for girls and Elements by Nina for boys have all the shoes you and your kids will love. Offering modern styles with funky, kid-friendly twists that take you from the classroom to the playground, you’ll be able to pick out shoes together with no arguments, and both will be thrilled with the result!

For Girls

Your daughter will adore the Beatrisa high-top sneaker, featuring glittery laces, a delicate floral pattern, and a sparkly overlay. You’ll love the fact that these look like regular lace-up shoes, but have a side zipper to make putting these shoes on – and taking them off – much easier.

The Beatrisa sneakers also have non-skid, non-marking soles that are extra grippy for all your little one’s play this fall season. Pair with a denim jacket or vest for a fun twist on the classic high-top look.

The Krystyn shoe is our favorite dressy look this fall, and can be toned down with simple leggings and a tunic, or dressed up with a glitzy dress. No matter what your daughter pairs these Mary Janes with, she’ll look adorable! Nina’s Krystyn shoes have an adjustable strap with a bold rhinestone flower to add some pizzazz, and the black platinum leather toe adds a bit of extra visual interest to these stunning shoes.

Each pair also comes with a non-skid, non-marking sole, which means she’ll be able to play while looking glamorous – and really – what more could a girl ask for?

For Boys

We really can’t get enough of the Elements by Nina fall collection – particularly the Mark sneaker. These kicks, simply put, are just cool. Available in two colors (burnished cognac, shown here), your little dude can pick whatever suits his fancy. Each pair of Mark sneakers has a grippy, vulcanized rubber sole, so he can play, play, play to his heart’s content, and look fashionable in the process.

We love the fact that these sneakers feature a memory foam footbed and padded collar, making them incredibly comfortable for full days of school and play. We’re loving these for warm early fall days, paired with shorts and a button-up shirt with rolled sleeves, and mixed with dark denim and a sweater for the cooler days that are on their way.

Elements’ Braxton shoes are a totally kid-friendly twist on the classic wingtip shoe, featuring a traditional wingtip look on top, mixed with a fun sneaker-style bottom. The Braxton shoes are available in black (shown here), and brown, and also include the same comfy memory foam footbed and padded collar that the Mark sneakers do.

These shoes are perfect for dressier occasions like Thanksgiving (it will be here before you know it!), or just an average day at school. No matter where your son wears these, he’ll be comfortable and funky fresh. The best part? These shoes have elasticized, no-tie laces, which means he can get them off and on all by himself!
