Last month, we enjoyed a "staycation" in downtown Cleveland. We stayed at a fabulous hotel in the theater district, and got to check out several of the Cleveland area's hottest attractions. We saw sharks at the Greater Cleveland Aquarium, learned how space ships make it to the moon at the Great Lakes Science Center, and we saw tons of iconic music memorabilia at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.
Since we're a very musical family, I wasn't at all surprised that my kids were absolutely hypnotized by the sights and sounds at the Rock Hall. We got to see so many amazing pieces of history, from hand-written lyrics by Jim Morrison of The Doors, some crazy outfits that only Lady Gaga could pull off, and of course, we saw some Blue Suede Shoes worn by "The King", Elvis Presley, himself!
I definitely encourage a love of music, so when my 3 year old, Xander, told me he wanted his very own blue suede shoes, I couldn't help but be a little excited. Luckily, I knew just where to get those pretty blue shoes, as well. Florsheim! This brand offers some amazing styles for men and boys, including several pairs of....You guessed it! Blue Suede Shoes!
The folks at Florsheim Kids sent us a pair of their Flites Wing Jr. boy's shoes to check out for ourselves. These are one of their more casual shoes, but can easily be dressed up with a nice pair of slacks or khakis. These are a dark blue suede, and have a durable yet super-lightweight rubber sole. This makes the the ideal shoe for both formal occasions as well as play. When you have a 3 year old, sometimes it's hard to distinguish between the two!
Aside from being pretty darn snazzy looking, these shoes are also comfortable and easy for little people to put on and take off. (Also a major plus in my home!) See those shoe-laces? Well, they aren't. There's no tying involved at all! Instead, Florsheim Kids has added stretchy, shoe-lace looking bands. So you have the look of a tie-style shoe with the convenience of a slip-on. Pretty cool, right?
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.
