Nike SB Janoski for Toddlers - Having been quite popular with both adults and kids, it was only a matter of time before Nike would introduce the favorite SB Janoskis in itty bitty baby sizes. Slated for spring 2014, the Baby Janos will feature all the SB support as well as the timeless boat shoe aesthetic minus the round or leather laces commonly seen in the adult sized model of this shoe.
As the younger generation of skate kids appear to be introduced to the sport at younger and younger ages, we think that Nike is really moving in the right direction with this release. Good moves.
Air Jordan 5 GS in Cement Grey and Raspberry - A new pair of girls GS Jordan 5’s have become available this week and these babies are bringing all the boys to they yard. Their cement grey upper is sleek and clean and is well accentuated by a pretty raspberry mid-sole, a purple liner and those icy blue soles.
Victor Cruz for Foot Locker Kids - In this new Foot Locker Kids commercial, Victor Cruz, a New York Giants wide receiver, befriends Scott, a cool kid that is sad that after their 30 seconds of commercial time together they will no longer be friends. Cruz decides the best thing to do is “Make it Count” and so the two go on several quick adventures before Scott gets the boot. Funny, witty and well done; this is great advertisement.
Nike Free 5.0 GS “Camo” - In keeping with the on-going camouflage trend, Nike released a great new colorway on their Free 5.0 for your grade school kids. Mixing black, silver, light grey and just a lil bit of subtle red, this light sneaker not only looks amazing but feels great when out to play. Sorta wished they were in my size.
Check them out at Titolo.ch or at your local Nike retailer.
New Balance Kids 574 in Brown and Green - Slip those tiny feet into a pair of kid-friendly retro New Balance runners. The very popular 574 lifestyle sneaker has been adapted for easy on-and-off access and features a dark brown suede colorway highlighted with bright green branding, midsole and heel tab.
Great for kicking around this summer or for the dreaded “back-to-school” season.
Nike Air Max 1 GS - Blue & Volt - Resting upon Air Max’s groundbreaking visible Air sole unit, this AM1’s blend of bright blue hues, Volt yellow accents and textures on the mudguard and Nike Swoosh, make it a perfect addition to any young enthusiast’s growing sneaker collection.
This iconic runner has been ever present for a number of seasons and we are so glad to see that Nike has been shrinking it to youth sizes.
Vans Vault X Disney Retro Collection - This fall, Vans Vault will be releasing a collection of Original Classic featuring re-issued 1980’s Disney prints. In an effort to regain that classic Disney aesthetic, two Mickey Mouse prints, a Donald Duck print and a Winnie the Pooh print have been placed on a selection of vans shoes including four magical, toddler-sized Authentics.
Jordan Son-of-Mars Low GS - On June 22nd, the White/Cement Jordan Son-of-Mars Lows will be available for you and your youth. The shoe will feature a white leather upper, a black lining, cement and “elephant skin” details on the mid-sole and heel and an appropriate, popping red Jumpman on the tongue.
We are impressed with the way Jordan has successfully perfected this hybrid sneaker by cutting out the extra details (aka the velcro lace cover) that were maybe a bit too much.
Vans x Hello Kitty 2013 Collection - Your girls’ summer wardrobe will not be complete without a pair of kicks from the newest Vans x Sanrio collaborative collection.
For toddlers and youth, find Slip-Ons, Authentics and the new Authentic Super Hi featuring eye-catching and updated Hello Kitty prints and colours. Tees, bags, caps and socks are also available, but they are in “mommy” sizes only.
The collection is now available via shop.vans.com and at your local Vans retailers.
Nike Footscape Free For Kids - One of Nike's newest cult classics, the Footscape Free, is now available in Toddler and Pre-schooler sizes. The hybrid sneaker, which married the Footscape's upper with Nike Free's sole, is a perfect combination of style and substance.
It’s quirky asymmetrical appearance, its fun combination of bright colours and its light barefoot-feeling stride puts these mutts at the top of our list when it comes to kids footwear.
Air Jordan 8 GS “Laney” - Tomorrow, Saturday April 13th, Jordan will launch an exclusive Air Jordan 8 for grade school girls. The Jordan 8 “Laney” will boast a grey upper, with blue and yellow accents - gender neutral in our opinion.
While dads will have to wait until next week for their “Bugs Bunny” Air Jordan 8s, your girls can kick it in their strapped up jays.
Keds x Taylor Swift Collection - Keds has launched its first footwear collaboration with seven-time Grammy Award winning and multi-platinum singer-songwriter, Taylor Swift.
A dozen new pairs of Keds’ classic “Champion” sneaker are available now world wide printed with polka dots, stripes, mini guitars, flowers, nautical themed patterns and more.

Slogans such as “Life is something you have to take head on,” “Try things lots of times” and “Say Hi,” are part of Keds’ efforts in helping young women feel confident and courageous when encountering their every lives. What better choice then this self-made, valiant and beautiful young artist!?
The Taylor Swift for Keds collection is now available at retailers worldwide and online at keds.com. Select styles will be sold exclusively at Nordstrom.com and Journeys.com.
