Shoes fall into the “do not skimp” category when it comes to gear, as appropriate footwear can go far in developing healthy little feet. I love that Keen's toddler and child boots are the exact same as the grown-up version, just in a pint-sized package.  Because of that quality, these shoes aren’t cheap, but they are durable enough to last through multiple children. With a water-resistant leather upper and a waterproof breathable lining on the inside, they're perfectly designed for an afternoon of puddle-jumping.  Slingshot laces means easy on and off, and a sturdy design makes this shoe ready for whatever terrain your child encounters.  My son Canaan is on his second season with his Alamosas, and the only signs of wear is the dirt on them.
