Roo hates wearing socks. It's kind of a pain in the butt, actually. When we received the amazing U*neaks sneakers that feature clear side panels to show off your funky sock wardrobe, I thought she might actually give the cozy footwarmers a try. See, the proprietary U*neaks socks (available in ankle and crew lengths) have totally different patterns on each side, so you can switch feet and have a completely different look. But, no, my weirdo kid just wore them barefoot so you could see her fleshy foot through the sides… kind of evoking a sporty version of vinyl stripper shoes. (The flowing princess nightgown doesn't help matters much, either.)
Thankfully, she's come around. It's 15º out right now, so that's a good thing to ward off frostbite. Plus her pink suede Paris Z-Strap U*neaks are super stinking cute with everything in her wardrobe.
They even look good with dollar store princess socks!
While U*neaks are definitely great for girls who like to switch up their style, I think they're even more exciting for boys since their fashion choices are usually much more limited. Crazy socks are a way for even the preppiest boy to cut loose a little! I'm actually looking forward to Jasper hitting a size 8 so he can wear the suave and skater-ish Camel Rev U*neaks.
If your child is a movie buff, perhaps they would enjoy the new line of Madagascar U*neaks Socks that feature all their favorite characters.
