Sandals for boys and girls
One of the reasons why many children loves to wear sandals, is because sandals let fresh feel of air circulating between the toes. And if it is a bit chilly outside, just loosen the buckel abit, and then there is enough room for wearing a pair of warm socks.
Thus, you can find sandals that are designed specifically for your kid’s preferences as to whether the pair selected should be in feminine colours, with patterns, flowers and pearls, or if they should be some extra cool sandals with camouflage, animal motifs and much more.
We have an exciting range of fashionable sandals with lots of fun details on them and in all the colours of the rainbow. Search through our entire collection of sandals for boys and girls of all ages here at Kids-world.
Sandals for active kids
You can very easily find sandals that meet your kid's needs and support their daily activities. If your kid is playing in the garden and climbing trees, sandals with velcro closures would be the obvious choice, but for an older girl playing with girlfriends on the road, a pair of fine sandals with buckles will fit perfectly.
There may be a difference as to how long girls and boys wear closed toe sandals before switching to open toe sandals. It might be that your kid continues to wear closed toe sandals until they turn four years of age, but possibly all the way up to the age of eight. On the contrary, they might be ready to wear open toe sandals before the age of four.
Depending upon the activity level and what it’s to be used for, if kids have to play on the road, both types of sandals can be worn, but if they play in the sand or play football, then a pair of closed toe sandals is usually the most comfortable to have on.
Choose the right size kid’s sandals
When purchasing sandals for your kids, it’s important to choose the right size. Of course, the sandals shouldn’t be too small, but it also doesn’t help to buy them too big, as many people mistakenly think that the kids just have to "have something to grow in.”
If the sandals that they’re wearing are too big, their feet slip around and the sandals are not able to provide the support they are designed to, and it doesn't make it easy for them to run around and play in the sandals. When purchasing sandals for kids, as a rule of thumb, it’s best to add a growth allowance of about 1 to 1.5 centimeters in the closed toe sandals and about 1 centimeter in the open toe sandals.
You can possibly use the forefinger width method, which works relatively well, by placing your index finger at the end of the longest toe between the end of the front of the shoe. For the vast majority of sandals, this method makes it easy to see if there is the correct amount of room for the toes.
Closed toe sandals for kids
Classic sandals are a closed model that is usually closed with velcro closures over the ankles, or with buckles around the ankles and tops of the feet. The options for tightening and loosening the velcro closures and buckles make the sandals easy to adjust to the feet. Closed toe sandals also provide protection for the toes, while at the same time provide stability and support for little ones, ensuring that their feet don't slip around in their sandals.
Many of the boys’ and girls' sandals you’ll find here at Kids-world are padded with leather inside, and come with goods soles on the bottom that conform to kid's feet.
Open toe sandals for older kids
When your kid turns 4 to 5 years old, it’s typically about the time to choose an open toe sandal. At this stage, kids no longer require the same toe protection that a closed sandal provides. Under the age of 4 to 8 years, it’s always a good idea to choose sandals with a closed heel cup, but an open heel cup is a better solution for older kids. As with a closed sandal, it’s still important that the sandals adjust and support around the ankles so that the feet remain stable, and don’t slide around. A possible option in the beginning is to choose open toe sandals that allows you to adjust at the heels.
Many open toe sandals at Kids-world come with adjustable straps. They provide good flexibility with straps so they can be accurately adjusted to your kid's feet. By choosing straps with velcro, it’s easier for kids to close the sandals themselves. In addition, many sandals come with adjustable flexible straps that go over the feet and ankles. This way, the sandals can be adjusted to support the feet entirely..
For holidays and trips on the beach, kids’ slippers, beach sandals and other footwear without a heel cup are quite perfect, but footwear for kids without a heel cup or heel strap is certainly not good for them to walk in. They’re perfectly fine for a trip to the pool or a walk on the terrace, but otherwise they can’t be recommended for little feet, over extended periods of time.
The fit of kids’ sandals is important
Kids have different feet, and therefore it’s important that their sandals have a good fit so that they’re able to quickly and easily adapt to your kid's feet. As a general rule, the sandals should not be adjusted so tightly so that the feet have very little opportunity to move.
The area where the foot is located is called the footbed, and it’s important that the feet are located in the footbed, neither too far forward nor backward. When adjusting the heel straps, it’s especially important that they’re not adjusted too tight, as feet can get pushed too far forward in the footbed, and can create great discomfort for kids when wearing the shoes.

How to clean and maintain kids’ sandals
Summer offers lots of play and activities, and kids enjoy running around in their sandals and allowing their feet to breathe. For the very active, this can make both open and closed kids’ sandals very dirty. Luckily it's pretty easy to clean them.
Robust materials mean that sandals can stand up to a little of everything, and with the right care, they will look great all summer long. When the sandals need to be cleaned, you can simply use a wrung-out cloth to remove dirt and grime.
For kids' sandals made in leather, a good shoe polish can easily and quickly make them look nice and give them a fresh-looking colour. It’s also recommended to give leather sandals a little beeswax, as it retains the flexibility of the leather, and freshens up the sandals.
Suede sandals are also easy to restore, but here you need to remember to use a suede brush when brushing the sandals and as well as a liquid fabric colour in either neutral or a colour for the suede.
