Best sneakers for preschoolers and kindergartners
Canvas sneakers from the Seattle-based firm See Kai Run are among Stacey Fauci, owner of the kids' shoe retailer Runnin' Wild, top sellers every year. She remarks, "They have a useful soft sole, and the styles are extremely attractive. It's a terrific first-walker shoe, and the colours are more subdued. They have a somewhat broader cut as well. Many children have broad feet, so it makes logical that these roomier shoes be comfortable on kids' feet, says Jennifer May, a consultant for children's footwear.
Air Jordan 1 Mid Basketball Sneakers
Dayna Hall Carter, design director at Vox Media, says, "It's all our fault, but my sons (4 and 2) only prefer to wear AJ1s now. The iconic Air Jordan 1s come in a range of colour schemes and heights and have earned a lifelong membership to the cool-shoe club. Carter enjoys that both of her children may wear the same model of shoes and that "they work nicely for both their feet, narrow (oldest) and massive dino feet (the infant)."
Cienta Distressed Canvas Slip On, Mint
These slip-ons have a charming French Converse-like vibe that remind me of Bensimons. These were purchased for Ashley Melone's kid and come highly recommended by the co-founder of the nursing-friendly clothes business Madri Collection. For my kid, I like the Cienta Distressed Canvas Slip-Ons. Having slip-on shoes that she can easily wear without socks makes leaving the house much easier. In addition, Melone says they complement almost every ensemble and have a "timeless" appearance.
Camper Runner Sneakers
The indisputably fashionable Camper Runner shoes, according to Dopple stylist Alexandra Perri, are so adorable that "your small ones genuinely want to wear them." The timeless cream hue complements whatever clothing your school-aged child chooses, and the Velcro and lace design makes them simple to fasten, especially for young children who are still honing their shoe-tying skills.
Rick and Morty x Puma
It's rare to see a Puma sneaker in our list of the Best Sneakers of the Year, and a lot of it has to do with the subpar merchandise the company has recently released. However, the acquisition of potential superstar LaMelo Ball has aided in its efforts to change that perception. One of the top ten shoes of 2022 so far may be found when you combine the fact that Ball's first signature shoe is pretty fantastic with Rick and Morty as a collaborating partner. Surprisingly, there is a lot of anticipation around this shoe; it sold out nearly right once and is now trading on StockX for well over double what it cost at retail. Of course, mismatched basketball shoes are not for everyone, but this shoe has a lot going for it to get some notoriety. — Ben Feldstein
Joe Freshgoods x New Balance
When it comes to its shoes, New Balance adheres to a formula that is generally dependable. Maintain the models' simplicity and only make minor adjustments to improve them over time. Rarely do we see significant shoe modifications or new variants that evoke strong feelings in consumers. That mould is broken by the 9060. Although it features more daring designs and a pointier toe, its upper resembles that of the brand's 990 lineage. However, the solo unit is where the 9060 has really made a splash. The 9060 has podular units, which culminate on and protrude from the heel, as opposed to the thick, robust tooling found in many New Balance shoes. The sneaker was released through Instagram's new footwear release platform as part of a two-shoe partnership with Joe Freshgoods. Due to significant issues with the original drop, Instagram decided to re-release the sneakers.
Gucci x Adidas Gazelle
At first, I didn't want to enjoy them. Although Adidas fully redid the sneaker five or six years ago, I still like Gazelles. The normal Gazelle, a version from the 1990s, is better than Gazelle Indoors, which isn't as good. The Trefoil tread on the transparent gum sole is pretty excellent. But let's go right to the point: A Gucci x Adidas combination is huge. Some fans of dress shoes with heels and sneakers were unsure if there would be anything in the project for them when it was initially revealed. There were ultimately just a few Gazelles, and they were outfitted with the appropriate embellishments and quality materials. The unique pair had Gucci's emblem on the outsole and was embroidered with the brand's monogram. Overall, it's a great sneaker that combines the greatest features of both worlds. For many, that made it simple to pass, but others with the money could attempt to obtain a pair.
Nocta x Nike Hot Step Air Terra
Drake's Nocta x Nike Hot Step Air Terra is far from the first pair of sneakers to bear his name in a collaborative design. But the Canadian superstar finally has a model to call his own after years of Air Jordan collaborations and a lucrative clothing line with Nike (after a pause while he toyed with other brands). The sneaker's rough outsole tread and 3M detailing are the most visible examples of how it surprisingly borrows design cues from trail running shoes. Some fans weren't impressed with the first all-white and all-black colours that were released, particularly after such a lengthy wait for anything completely new.
Union x Nike Dunk Low
We completely understand if you're tired of watching Dunks by this point. The 1985 basketball shoe has been everywhere for the last two years, from the high-volume general release black and white pairs that are impossible to avoid to the rare Nike SB variants smashing the resale market. The Nike Dunk moment that began this decade has been a satisfying, if little wearying, return to the silhouette's former greatness. Union LA's owner, Chris Gibbs, knew the solution. This year, his store debuted a trio of Nike Dunk Lows that were inspired by passports, evoking the heyday of the brand's first retro era at the turn of the century. However, they also partially forsake their predecessors by concealing recognisable hues behind transparent materials rather than presenting them as outright throwbacks.
