If it's cute girls' shoes you're after, you're in luck as all the shoe store shelves are filling up with pretty pastel and brightly-colored shoes for spring. Below, I've highlighted some of 2013's prettiest and most popular styles in spring shoes for girls; including casual, athletic and dress shoes.
As a kid, I lived in sneakers -- actually, even as an adult, I spend a lot of time in sneakers. So, this pick is for all my little soul sisters out there, who love nothing more than slipping on a pair of brightly-colored kicks for all their daily activities.
Available in youth sizes, these Keen shoes come in loads of great colors, including chartreuse; vivid blue; coral; black; and a cool, color-blocked version.
Available in wine, gray or black, these classic girls dress shoes are as cute as they come, and they're as easy to pair with jeans as they are with spring dresses. If this particular style isn't what you're looking for, you may want to check out the rest of the collection, as it's pretty diverse, and reasonably-priced as well.
Chances are, you're probably already familiar with Toms shoes, but just in case you haven't heard the inspiring story behind this company, allow me a second to explain: founded in 2006, Toms shoes donates one pair of shoes to a child in need for every pair of Toms shoes purchased -- one for one. To date, they've given more than 2 million pairs of new shoes to kids around the world. The official Toms
site has a ton of information on how it all works, as well as some incredibly touching videos and, of course, the full line of Toms footwear.
I'm personally crazy about these sparkly flats, and I think the little girl in your life will be as well, since they come in loads of great colors. If your daughter is a little less impressed by glitter than I am, then check out the other options, as there are loads of styles to choose from.
Boat shoes are always a favorite for warm weather, and they're exceptionally hot for 2013. Fun, vibrant, and especially pretty in pink, yellow and blue, these adorable girls' boat shoes are the ultimate in casual footwear, and they're a perfect match for shorts, pants, or casual skirts.
With canvas uppers and rubber soles, these cute shoes come in toddler and youth sizes.
Unfortunately my feet aren't small enough to actually review these adorable casual shoes for girls, but I was able to do the next best thing by writing a review of the women's version of these zebra-striped Sidewalk Surfers from Sanuk
-- and I'll save you a click by telling you they're some of the most comfortable shoes I've ever worn.
Also available in white/gray and a tan giraffe print, these casual shoes are great for fashion-forward girls on the go.
I can pretty much guarantee that these will be the cutest shoes you see on this list (or probably any other list, for that matter). These sporty high-top sneakers feature glittery, fabric uppers, upon which a girly floral pattern of beads has been applied. They're gorgeous, and trust me, if they had these in adult sizes, I'd have already ordered them.
Another favorite from the same brand is the 'Jasmine Mid
Perfectly-versatile in pale silver, these girls' shoes are so pretty, and thanks to their glittery trime, they're ideal for dressy occasions.
Available in youth and toddler sizes, the simple, feminine styling of these ballerina flats makes them a great choice for any pants, skirts or dresses.
These vivid shoes will get your little girl's attention for sure, and not
just because of all the glittery colorful stars that adorn them, but also because they light up with each step. Great with jeans, shorts, or casual skirts and dresses, this style is especially eye-catching and comes in several different color combinations, but the entire line of Skechers shuffles is sure to please.
