As you buy shoes for your baby boy, there are a number of factors that you cannot afford to let slip off your mind. Buying cute looking shoes maybe easy, but buying the right shoes is not. Here is a list of some important criteria that the shoes must satisfy before you buy them for your baby:
1. Size- When it comes to buying baby boy shoes, the size of the shoes might be very tough to decide on. Put it on the baby's feet to see if it fits in well or not. Though the shoes should fit the baby boy just well, you might like to opt for shoes that are just a little larger than what required, for ensuring that the baby is really comfortable wearing them. This may not be a bad idea, as long as you know that the shoes are not going to keep slipping off. Baby boy shoes that are made of such material that is stretchable are things you must watch out for.
2. Comfort- Make sure the shoes you purchase are extremely comfortable to the kid. Check it well to know that it neither too warm nor to cold inside, and look for any faulty manufacturing technique, or any manufacturing accident, that might have made the shoes uncomfortable. The best way to ensure that the shoes are perfect in the inside, feel the insides with your fingers. Touch every corner of the inside wall, and feel it gently to see if it might hurt. Check the soles of the shoes thoroughly too. Make the baby wear the shoes to see how he reacts.
3. Strong- The shoes should be strong so that no matter how harshly your baby boy handles it, it never really tends to tear apart. It should be held together very well to resist the strongest of attacks. No matter how the baby twitches his feet or moves around, rubs the shoes roughly on the ground, it should not get worn easily. Such kinds of shoes are capable of caring for your baby's feet the best.
4. Washable- As you buy shoes for your baby boy, you cannot forget the fact that the shoes will be subject to all kinds of mess. Therefore the baby boy shoes should be made of such material that can be washed and cleaned easily. This will make washing the shoes less frustrating and less time consuming for you, and will ensure the fact that the shoes continue to look clean no matter how badly the baby treats it.
5. Airy- Packing away your baby boy's feet inside the shoes, especially for long hours is not exactly a very good idea. Shoes that cover up the feet completely, without letting any air to go in should be avoided, unless of course it is chilly winter time and you need to protect the baby from cold. Shoes that do not allow the feet to breathe are not only uncomfortable to wear, but also cause smelling of the feet in extreme cases. Sometimes this may cause minor skin problems too, if the child's skin is especially delicate and the shoes are worn for prolonged hours.
A perfect outfit is nothing without the right pair of shoes. What you choose to slip on your feet can make or break an entire ensemble -- no matter how well-coordinated, how well-planned or how well-structured your outfit is. To make sure that all your hard work in expertly color-coordinating the ideal get-up doesn't go to waste, here are five -- that's right, five -- shoes that every man should have lined up in a neat little row on the floor of his closet.
1- The sneaker Casual wear is an important part of every man's lifestyle. You can't be in the office all the time, right? And when you're relaxing on the weekends, chances are you opt for a great pair of jeans and a laidback shirt. When you're in casual mode, be sure to adorn your feet accordingly by including a stylish sneaker to your shoe collection. This Roma Pigskin vintage '60s Puma trainer is a perfect example of how to dress down your look by styling up your gear.
2- The casual shoe Since not every laidback occasion is sneaker-appropriate, you're going to need a second type of casual shoe. This second footwear option comes in the form of a lace-up shoe with a thin leather sole. Today's casual shoes are sleek, structured and void of any bulk -- just like Steve Madden's Boarder shoe. This shoe will look immaculate paired with a straight-leg jean.
3- The black dress shoe For those high-brow formal occasions, or for a regular day at work, the black dress shoe is a classic item of footwear to own. There are no exceptions to this rule. Aldo's Cilda loafer is just one example of the many styles of dress shoe you can own to mix and match with your slacks and suits. With its barely there sole and elongated toe box, it's a chic shoe that'll effectively gussy up any formal or business outfit.
4- The brown dress shoe In today's fashion world, brown is the new black. While black is still a classic color and reserved for ultra-formal occasions, brown has become an acceptable alternative for occasions that are less decorous, yet still proper -- like the boardroom, for example. The Hermesilas model of dress shoe from Aldo is the perfect pair to slip your feet into and head to work.
5- The ankle boot The ankle boot is an important shoe to add to your collection -- especially for the fall. It's a functional piece because you can wear it in varied ways. For instance, you can wear your ankle boot with a business suit or a pair of jeans and it will complement both looks successfully. These black leather, square-toe boots from Gordon Rush are a prime example of a sophisticated shoe that you can pair with almost any pair of pants.
