Should You Buy Shoes with Velcro or Laces for Your Child?

Should You Buy Shoes with Velcro or Laces for Your Child?

February 16, 2021

Velcro shoes or shoes with laces? There is no wrong choice. We absolutely love the look of either shoes and have listed the benefits of both.

Here is why we think shoes with velcro are great for your kid:

  1. Shoes with velcro are a wonderful option for babies, toddlers and little kids. It’s super easy for you to put on and take off the shoe for your child. 

  2. If it’s easy for you, then it will be very easy for your child to learn how to put on and take off their shoes on their own.

  3. Shoes with velcro are perfect for children with wider/ chubby feet. 

  4. The velcro allows for you to easily adjust the shoe around your child’s foot, making sure they’re snug and provide proper support.

  5. The brands that we work with provide the highest quality and most durable velcro.

Here is why we think shoes with laces are great for your kid:

  1. Shoes with laces do take a little bit longer to put on, but you have a better possibility of adjusting the shoe for a proper fit. Laces can be adjusted to fit the shape of the foot exactly.

  2. Your child can learn how to tie their own shoes eventually. Usually this is around the age of 5-6 years old. Try saying a fun poem while teaching your little to tie their shoes: Bunny Poem - Over, under, around and through, Meet Mr. Bunny Rabbit, pull and through.

  3. Laces provide such a classic look to the shoe. 

We think both velcro and laces have their perks and your cutie pie will look wonderful in both!
