Summer is just around the corner & we couldn't be more excited! It's almost time to store away the backpacks, say good-bye to daily school schedules, & get outside to play. With summer starting next month, I am on the look out for the perfect summer shoe for the kids this summer. My kids need shoes that can be worn out to the park, but also worn at home while running through the sprinkler. My kids need shoes that can get dirty as they jump through mud puddles, but are easy for this mom to clean. My kids need shoes that are easy to get on and can easily stay on their feet for outdoor play. I'm excited to say that I have found a great fit for our family, the Stride Rite Phibian shoe.
But once the weather warms up a little more, there is one thing we love to add in our playtime. Water. The kids love to run through the sprinkler and jump in puddles. It will be time to hit the hiking trails, beach, & the pool. So not only do the kids need a good sneaker, but we also need a sandal that is good for wet ground and water environments. The Stride Rite Phibian is just that. The breathable shoe makes it easy for kids to run around in water, but is also created to dry quick so your child doesn't have to waltz around town with wet, soggy shoes!
There is a reason that you need a shoe that is machine washable during summer:) Every kid loves some good-old fashioned play in mud, but no parent wants to deal with muddy shoes that need to be thrown away. Courtney's girls recently got out in the mud and boy, did they have some fun. Thankfully, with a little spray of the hose & throwing the shoes into the washing machine, the shoes turned back to their bright color! The Stride Rite Phibian shoe can be easily cleaned and is made out of a quick dry material that prevents sogginess and a stinky smell.
There is one other requirement that I have about summer shoes. They have to be fun & playful for summertime! The Stride Rite Phibian shoe is just that. It comes in a variety of fun, bright colors that are perfect for summer. Andrew picked out the Spiderman Phibian shoes so he can quickly scale our rock wall on the play set & run fast in his lightweight sneakers, just like Spiderman does.
