Toddler Kicks: Get 'Em at Foot Locker

What drove me to shop toddler kicks at Foot Locker the other day? The rain. After I perused JCPenney and Express in Manhattan Mall, it started raining cats and dogs and I had no umbrella. Luckily there's a Foot Locker entrance across from the mall on 33rd Street, so instead of returning to the office I sprinted through the rain right into the arms of these:

With toddlers, as with infants, you're still not wanting laces. I got Converse hi-tops for her at three months and while they were the cutest things ever, they were a pain to get on baby feet. The Nikes above have faux laces and a velcro strap, which makes a mom's life much easier in the AM.

She was so excited about her new shoes, she tried to wear them to bed. And when she woke up this morning, I had to put them on first thing. Note the pattern mix with the PJ's: bumblebees meet gingerbread men, very on-trend for spring 2012. And very chic with neon kicks, yes?
