Colorful Kids’ Jelly Sandals That We Wish Came In Our Size
When it comes to a summertime uniform, sandals are a true essential. And one of our favorite styles is the jelly sandal. The nostalgia of our own youth is real in this throwback sandal that has stood the true test of time, and the trend has only gotten better with age. While a jelly sandal used to exclusively look like a caged-in version of an everyday shoe, the kicks have evolved well past the initial entrance into the closets of decades past. It’s true: we’re still huge fans of the original silhouette, but have added more to the mix as we grow our own children’s collections of summertime shoes.
We’re currently shopping more strappy and open versions of our old loves and T-strap sandals with exposed toes. They’re more elegant than ever, and come in nearly every color of the rainbow. What’s more, not only can our girls snag lust-worthy glitter or embellished styles, but our boys are given the gift of more rugged soles on bright tones of red and deep hues of navy. Think: all your favorite summer sandal shapes, just made of waterproof rubber.
And, what all you moms out there well know, a waterproof shoe is pretty much a godsend, especially come summer. Chic footwear that will live through a jump in a puddle, rainy afternoon, or trip to the beach? Not to mention sprinkler runs. Sign us up. And, what’s more, when they ultimately come home filthy, all they need is a quick run under water and they’re good as new. We quite literally cannot think of anything better when it comes to a child’s summertime wardrobe essential.
