Crocs are fantastic shoes for toddlers!
on April 20, 2016
My 3-year-old son attends a Montessori school where his teacher requests that each student wears shoes that he/she can put on and take off. They recommended Crocs, especially during the winter, since they wear boots and snow gear to play outside and need an additional pair of shoes during classroom time.
This is our second pair of Crocs this year as my son hit a growth spurt during the middle of the school year. I offered him the choice to pick out a different pair of shoes since he mastered putting on and taking off Velcro shoes, but he was insistent on having another pair of Crocs, exactly like his first pair, down to the color. They arrived in plastic on the Crocs shoe hanger and he immediately gave them a test run.
They’re incredibly easy for him to slip on and off, with the back down or up. It gives him a sense of independence and accomplishment every time he puts his shoes on by himself. For that reason alone, I’d recommend these for anyone with toddlers.
Another reason these are great shoes for toddlers is the ease in which you can clean them! My son has been wearing Crocs since he was young and they were a lifesaver when we were in the midst of potty training. Even now, when he’s firmly using the toilet, he occasionally has an accident and if he’s wearing his Crocs the cleanup is minimal. They’re easy to wash and rinse off. Not to mention that they dry off in no time.
His Crocs run a little big, but these are specifically designed as 2 sizes, so I expected them to be bigger. They’re incredibly durable and last through many seasons, playground adventures, waterpark shenanigans, beach days, indoor playing, and general toddler wear and tear.
