The only struggle you’ll have with boys’ shoes is how many pairs to buy him. While they can be unsure of clothes, there are often a number of styles of shoes on their wishlist. Our selection of boys’ shoes includes sneakers, flip flops, sandals, slip-ons and boots. Start him off with a pair of classic white sneakers and then let him build his collection from there. Look out for the latest streetwear styles and let him advise you on the next pair he’s eyeing. While white is a classic, look out for sporty styles to support his foot and a style that’s trending and will give his usual joggers and T-shirt style an update. You’ll need to measure his foot regularly to ensure you get the right size and look at sizing up by a size as this is the time that they grow quite quickly and you’ll want to get maximum wear out of each pair
Come summer, your son will need a pair of flip flops and this is a style that can be fun in bright prints or colours. For younger boys, look out for sandals, which offer feet more support and are great for walking on the beach – on the sand and in the water. For winter, he’ll need a pair of boots to keep his feet warm and dry. Look out for gum boots for tweens and your son gets older and heads towards his teens he’ll want a more refined pair that can be worn with jeans and a shirt for a smarter look. A year-round staple for all ages is the easy-to-wear slip-on that comes in fun prints and embellished with different details like studs. It’s easy to shop shoes for your tween and teen boys when you have this much choice.
