Heading into a relaxing, invigorating summer, kids need the right pair of shoes. My daughter Samantha had tennis shoes, but those can get sweaty on trips to the beach and the pool, even though they are great for riding bikes and dancing. I needed shoes that would work for any summer occasion with enough support and structure to get my daughter active and moving all summer long. Since I had tried out Chacos shoes for myself and for my husband before, I reached out to the company again and explained my search. The company recommended a style called the Outcross, which I chose in a violet quartz color.
Chacos Kids Outcross Review
The shoes fit awesome. I used the sizing chart online, and I thought maybe it would run small because I assumed my daughter’ feet would have grown more this year. I found the sizing chart to be very accurate. My daughter’s feet fit with just enough room for them to grow over the summer and into fall. Since ordering offline can be difficult, especially when it comes to shoes, I was happy about the convenience of having the shoes fit true to size.
Since the shoes arrived on a chilly day in June, the first days Samantha tried them out, she wore them with socks. Paired with pink socks, they looked nice enough to wear to preschool. Even though it was a misty day with cool temperatures, my daughter was really excited to wear the shoes instead of the rain boots she would usually wear. She also really liked the coloring of the shoes. Since pink is her favorite color, she was instantly smitten with the shoes.
Heading out on a Friday evening with the family, Samantha wore the shoes to a picnic event. I got to watch how well the shoes worked as she ran to the playground, played hopscotch, and danced.
No matter the activity, the shoes worked great. My daughter had the time of her life. I’m really glad that I made a good choice regarding the right shoes to get for the summer. It was a tough choice because I needed shoes Samantha could wear in the ocean for her beach trip, but I also wanted shoes that would work for biking to the neighborhood pool. Luckily, the Outcross shoes work great for all kinds of summer activities.
I received a free item, but it in no way influenced my opinion.
