It goes without saying that having children should have good children's shoes , but it is also important that the shoes are easy to put on and that they stay on! When you buy a pair of children's shoes what is the purpose of the shoe? Then it is also easier to choose the type of fastening.

So what's best about children's shoes? Velcro, shoelace or zipper ?

A small child, a baby, holds his hand on a pair of children's shoes using velcro to put them on.

Children's shoes with Velcro

Shoes to play in in the kindergarten or school yard should be easy to fasten, so many people choose velcro straps. If you can't tie, but have to fasten the shoes yourself, the velcro is a very practical alternative.

Shoe laces with a knot

Shoes with laces fit better on the foot than shoes with Velcro or zippers do. This makes a laced shoe good for those children who are learning to walk. Lacing is good for all ages, but not very practical. If the child has not learned it yet, it is not possible to quickly put on the shoes.

Zipper on children's shoes

The zipper is a clever invention, but many younger children tend to pull it up in hard jerks, causing it to break in the worst case scenario. You often see zippers on trendy lighter boots , combined with the fact that you shouldn't be in a hurry when pulling up the chain, makes them delicate in construction. Therefore, shoes with zippers are often better suited as flip flops on a slightly older child than as play shoes.

What is best?

All three constructions work perfectly, but on different children's shoes for different occasions . The velcro tends to be practical. The laces keep the child's shoe slim around the foot. The zipper is easy to pull up, but often sits on shoes that you have to be stylish in. Having said that, it is also important to go by your own experiences and what your child feels best in!
