Copping all the latest kicks we present to you on the pages of Highsnobiety is all well and good, but there’s no excuse for neglecting the footwear being rocked by your sprogs. Whether your days of queuing for the latest hype release are behind you, or you’re simply trying to create a YEEZY-flexing mini-me, it’s your duty as a Highsnob-reading parent to help your offspring look fly while they find their feet.
From tiny Air Jordans to infant iterations of some of the dopest kicks to have dropped this year — including the recent Carhartt WIP x Nike Air Force 1 collab, there are plenty of classic and limited edition ways to flex vicariously through your kid. And while studies vouching for the benefits of your kid’s comprehensive sneaker rotation are yet to surface, we can attest to their ability to turn heads in the sandpit, on the stroller, and beyond.
Flexed by some of streetwear’s most in the know fathers and their sons, the likes of Wotherspoon himself has been busy padding out his son’s collection. Meanwhile, some of Instagram’s littlest influencers (see @iammaddoxjax) are fast catching up to some of our go-to accounts for sneaker inspiration.
So, if you’re a dad who’s of the opinion that no child of his will be seen wearing The Baby Gap, or if you’re looking for the perfect gift for a soon to be sneakerhead parent, shop our full selection of the best kicks for kids below.
