What are some good choices for kids' sandals?
The same features are important when choosing kid's sandals as when choosing men’s sandals or women’s sandals, but keep these particular points in mind when shopping for sport sandals for children:
- Fit: Be sure that kids’ sandals fit snugly enough not to slide off. You should, however, allow about a thumb’s width of space in front of the toe.
- Function: The most economical way to buy kids’ sandals is to choose one sandal that works in many situations. A multi-strap, rubber sole sandal can work for amphibious hiking, as well as for canoeing, kayaking, sailing, and walking.
The Teva Children’s Ominum K Watersport Sandal is an excellent sport sandal for children. Important features for comfort and support include:
- Quick-release buckle to help kids and parents put the sandals on and take them off easily
- Rubber sole for traction
- Shock-absorbing heel pad for comfort
- Anti-microbial lining
- Quick-drying upper
