Now that it’s August, it is officially time prepare for the beginning of another school year. I have a list. It contains all those items that are necessary for success at school. What is NOT on that list is a new pair of shoes. We’ve already got that covered. I recently received this pair of Valco Jr Moc Toe boots for my eldest. Aren’t they cool looking?! I think I must not be the only adult who has wanted a pair for themselves as it clearly states on the website~ Valco Moc Toe Jr is a Boys shoe and is not available in Adult sizes. Darn it! Kid’s these days have all the luck:)
My son has a pair of sneakers and now these boots. We are set for the school year. Well, that is unless of course he decides to keep growing, which he always seems to do, and inevitably I’ll have to purchase another pair in the spring. Oh vey!
My son loves these shoes. They have camouflage. They are chunky boots! But most importantly they do not have laces that need to be tied. My almost nine year old is not a fan of shoes that require tying. Is he capable? Of course! Do I push it? No. This kid is stubborn, therefore I choose my battles wisely and this one doesn’t seem like a worthwhile fight.
Here is the skivvy on some of the specifics of the boot.
Upper: Combination genuine leather and fabric
- Lining: Breathable fabric
- Insole: Non-removable footbed
- Sole: Sturdy lug rubber
Of course if this particular style isn’t to your liking I recommend checking out all the possibilities available at Florsheim Kids (sorry, boys only). This shoes company has been in the business since 1892. That’s a long time!:) Obviously they’ve got this shoes thing down pat.
One lucky Mama Report reader will win a $60 gift certificate to pick out the Florsheim Kids shoe of their choice!
