For the last couple months, playtime has meant one of two things for many kids. On one hand there’s the afternoons of bundled-up and boot-wearing adventures through the snow. At the other end of the spectrum, there’s the warm indoor fun with toys and videogames. Now the ice has melted off the playground and snow no longer covers the blacktop and grass fields. Spring sports and activities start kicking up and kids want to play outside more than ever. (And for those who don’t—maybe give them a gentle push at the door!) With the boots back in storage and last year’s shoes probably a size too small at this point, it’s a great time to check out the latest collection of lightweight Skechers Kids sneakers for boys and girls.
Every pair is super flexible and many styles even feature a soft Skechers Memory Foam insole for added comfort during all those countless hours of active play and sports. Designed with sporty athletic styling and cool, bright colors that make an impact, there’s sure to be a style that shows off your little one’s unique personality.
After one of the toughest slogs through winter in memory, we couldn’t be more excited that our favorite season has finally returned. We love Spring for so many reasons. This is when everything about the world opens up in a sensory overload that makes you feel guilty staying inside. From the moment that first brave green bud breaks through, it’s a continuous assault of color and vibrant life that puts huge smiles on our faces.
How great is it to shed the heavy jackets and outer layers to feel that friendly sunshine again? We look forward to the calming breeze of the season that carries the amazing scents of fresh blooming flowers and taste of fruit off the vine. Maybe it’s just the puffy white clouds creating contrast, but the sky looks bluer and cleaner and more pure this time of year than any other.
It’s a time for walks…for picnics…for relaxing on the lawn with a good book…and spending as much time as possible outside. Best of all, it’s a time for sandals. Cute or chic, bright or bold—sandals open up the door to all the countless cool Spring looks that we’ve been waiting so long to wear.

Today I’ve partnered up with Skechers to talk about the reasons why Skechers Foamies are the perfect shoes for kids, especially toddlers.
Reason 1: Machine Washable!
My son Zaden gravitates towards all things messy and isn’t afraid to get dirty – and it’s a pain to clean mud, sand, or even food off of his shoes. I LOVE that Skechers Foamies are 100% washable: it makes cleaning them that much easier and gives me peace of mind anytime Zaden’s shoes get dirty. I just throw them in the wash, let them air dry, and they are as good as new.
Reason 2: Bright Colors.
Zaden is at an age where he loves playing and interacting with other kids and doing his own thing. With Skechers Foamies’ assortment of bright fun colors, I love that it’s easy to spot my little guy when he is playing with friends and that I’m still giving him a little bit of space so he can grow and develop his social skills.
Reason 3: Comfortable.
These shoes are designed so well and just by looking at them I can tell they are extremely comfortable. They have a full-length memory foam cushioned insole, and I know if Zaden could speak for himself he would say that makes all the difference. Whenever Zaden picks out his shoes, it is always one of his Skechers Foamies… always. 😉
Reason 4: Easy to put on.
These shoes are so simple to put on. They aren’t slip-on shoes, but the next best thing: easy straps enable you to tighten or loosen the shoes to provide the perfect fit for your little one. It takes less than ten seconds for me to get Zaden in his shoes and out the door, which I love.
