Kids Shoes: Dress Like Dad

The featured image is a pair of Great Lakes Jr. Knit Lace To Toe Oxfords in Gray hanging on a fishing rod with a tackle box on the background.

Most young boys want to act and appear older than they are. It’s common among young boys that they do not want to dress like children. They want to look older than they are and dress more like their fathers. This is why many of our boy’s shoe styles are mirror images of our men’s shoes. Like father like son, the styles that look great on an adult also look great in a boy’s shoe version.

For both men and boys shoes, nothing tops a wingtip. For any dress occasion, few boys dress shoes work better than a pair of wingtips. The perfing and classic design on a dress pair like our Reveal Jr. or even the more casual look of the Great Lakes Jr. always gives the boy wearing them a sense of importance. At the same time, a pair of boy’s wingtips makes them look like the man they will soon become.

Another sure hit for its good looks and versatile style for both men and boys shoes is the loafer. This slip on style is always on trend no matter if you are nine or ninety. For father and son wear, few looks work better than a pair of loafers with khakis and a sport coat. Whether the occasion calls for a dress version like our Reveal Jr. Boys Cap toe Oxford or a more laid-back style like the Jasper Jr. Moc Toe Bit Loafer, a loafer is a great choice for both father and son.

To give both father and son a bit of edge we all love a good boot. Once again, our favorite kids boots and kids sneakers are based on adult designs. Any boy wearing a pair of modern chukka boots like the Supacush Jr. automatically ups his style game. The same can be said of a pair of hybrid, dress sneakers like the Great Lakes Jr. A style that he can wear to school, on the weekend and can be dressed up for any family special event, a kids shoe like a hybrid sneaker is a versatile choice that makes any little man a stand out. And if dad can find a pair to match, well then, you’ve taken the father-son look to the next level.
