Okay, it's March...Which is supposed to mean a spring thaw....You know, birds chirping, early blooming flowers sprouting up from the earth...An end to winter. But, if you live in NE Ohio like I do, you're getting dumped on by MORE SNOW. Whoever made Elsa mad should go apologize immediately!
Massive amounts of snow and bitter temperatures have kept us indoors more often than not this winter. We're all getting a case of cabin fever, and longing for warmer weather so we can head to the riverfront a couple of blocks away. There is a wonderful fountain the kids like to splash around in, and they have been begging me to take them there. Yeah, I guess they don't understand that the fountain is closed for business come wintertime! We do have an amazing outdoor ice rink at the riverfront, but the littles don't know how to skate and are afraid to go and learn. That's a different post, entirely, though.
Even though it may not seem like it, spring is right around the corner. That means my children will finally get out of the house and enjoy the fresh air! In preparation for the change in seasons, I have ordered new clothing and shoes for the kids. We do this every year, and the kids love having a wardrobe refresh. I'm not going to lie. I like having an excuse to shop for my little ones.
This year, I wanted to find Xander a pair of shoes that will stand up to all his adventures this spring and summer, both in the water and on dry land. Of course the shoes have to be well-made, since I have a very active little boy. Durability is an absolute must. I'm sure you moms of rough and tumble, little men know exactly what I mean.
Lucky for me, the folks at Florsheim Shoes had exactly what I was looking for. They offer a ton of great styles for men and boys alike, perfect for every occasion from play to special occasions.
We received the Cove Mesh Jr. in Blue to check out for ourselves. These shoes are super-adorable, and of course, incredibly well made.
The Cove Mesh Jr. are double-duty shoes that can be worn during all of my little man's adventures. They are made from a unique mesh and waxy canvas, which are designed to handle water well. (Yes! Splash and puddle friendly shoes!) While they can be worn to the water parks or in our town's fountain, they are not your typical "water shoes". They are perfect for dry land, too.
The inner lining is a nice, breathable mesh, which keeps little feet from developing sores and blisters after too much fun in the water. The soles are a nice, thick rubber, and offer plenty of slip-proof traction for little ones who love to run, jump, and play.
Xander absolutely adores his Cove Mesh Jr. shoes from Florsheim Kids. Not only are they bright and colorful, they're comfy, too. Plus, since they're a slip-on style, my little man has no trouble putting them on, all by himself.
Overall, we absolutely love these shoes from Florsheim Kids! They're super easy for Xander to slip on and take off, which saves us tons of time when getting ready to head out to run errands, etc. They're also very comfortable and don't pinch little feet. These shoes are also really versatile and can be worn for any occasion from playtime to church and beyond!
If you're looking for affordable shoes for your own little man that are high-quality, stylish, and built to withstand the use and abuse that active kids often give their footwear, I would definitely recommend checking out Florsheim Kids! They have so many amazing styles, so you're bound to find something your little guy will love.
