This week, the Children’s Team stopped by The Children’s Great Shoe Event, a biannual event held in New Jersey. We spotted some great trends for F/W 13 from over 250 exhibitors. Girls stepped up their game in wedge sneakers with sparkly details. Chelsea and desert boots featured metallic finishes while tactile additions of bows, sequins and rhinestones were key embellishments. Boys kept their looks fresh with stand-out shoelaces. Velcro closures reigned across categories, and soles stole the show in contrast colors and thick platform styles. Keep an eye out for our upcoming F/W 13 Footwear Wrap!
