What to Look for in a Kid’s Summer Shoe That Works for all Your Adventures

When it comes to choosing a shoe for your kids this summer, your mind is probably spinning. There are so many options out there for summer shoes! It’s important that you know what to look for in a kid’s summer shoe. We partnered with Merrell Kids and tested out their Hydro 2.0 during our trip in the Wind Rivers in Wyoming over Memorial Day. Here are a few tips I put together to help you when you’re looking for your next adventure shoe. 

 

Easy to put on

Let’s face it, no mother enjoys helping her kid put their shoe on a million times a day. A summer shoe that works is one that they can put on themselves, with ease! You don’t want a shoe that isn’t kid friendly, trust me!

 

Budget friendly

Most kids get a new pair of sandals or shoes in the summertime because their school shoes have worn out. Again, no parent wants to spend a ton of money on shoes. So, a shoe that works for summer is one that fits in the family budget. Shoes are important, but it’s also important that they are affordable. Keep this in mind as you look for your kids’ summer shoes. The Merrell Hydro 2.0 cost $40. 

Versatile

Because I don’t want to buy my kids five different pairs of shoes for the summer months, it’s important that I purchase shoes that are versatile. What does this mean? Well, it means I want a pair of shoes, for my kids, that they can wear anywhere and for any occasion. I want them to be stylish enough to get pictures taken in, but comfortable enough to wear the park.

 

Durable

My worst fear, when purchasing summer shoes, is that they won’t last throughout the summer. My family takes a lot of adventures in the summer months, which is why I’m always looking for a durable shoe!

 

Check out the HYDRO 2.0

We love Merrell Hydro 2.0 because it’s an all around kids’s performance sandal that works on the trails and in the water. One thing that I really like is that it has IMEVA upper for quick drying and is noticibly lighter weight. Their 0mm toe drop gives it a barefoot feel and Merrell’s M Select™ GRIP has traction. My 4 year old can put this sandal on and take it off. The Hydro is also made with recycled materials and the price point is $40.00. 

 

This summer, as you try and pick out your kids’ summer shoes, follow these tips!
