Oh, little boys. You seriously get the shit end of the stick when it comes to apparel. Or I guess I should say “shit-colored,” because everything is brown. Or if it’s not brown, it’s navy blue. Or maybe black. If you like these muted colors — that’s awesome! You have a LOT of options when shopping for toddlers.
But as a color-lover, I went hunting for cute, bright shoes for Tavi, and I thought I’d share some of my non-brown findings here. Because there ARE awesome brightly colored shoes for little boys. You just have to look really hard.

As a mixtape maven myself, I would *DIE* to have my little bundle o’ love sporting this cute little onesie. They’re hand screenprinted on 100%... Read more
Comments on Colorful toddler boy shoes that aren’t blah brown
Oh and PS: I ended up buying two pairs of these shoes for Tavi. Anyone wanna guess which ones?
I’m gonna put my votes in for the rainbow Vans and the little skull shoes. Adorable!
Close! Yes, on the rainbow vans, and the little skull shoes we actually received as a gift when Tavi was very tiny. He’s outgrown them, so the other shoes I got him were the little bright blue & yellow ones. SO CUTE.
I actually buy a lot of boy clothes for my little girl because I like the primary colors and there’s just so much G.D. pink out there!
Same here. I almost regret telling my family the sex of my child before she was born due to the simple fact that everything I received from this was pink. Of course, she’s three years old now and this is still continuing. I think it’s because they think I don’t dress her “girly” enough. Anyway, I love those rain boots. I am sooo getting those.
I buy my girl boys clothes too for the same reason, though we’re both going through a hot pink phase right now lol
I’ve found lots of great options here for my son (now 15 months). My favorite so far was a pair of gray shoes with red and silver accents. So cute and far from bland. 🙂
And WTH is up with that sale. I may need to hook my son up with some of these shoes while they are all half priced.
I was JUST talking to someone about how I was sick of boring boy shoes. Hooray!
I love these; especially the rainbow Vans! My husband has been wearing checkered Vans for nearly 25 years and those baby shoes would be an awesome tribute to that!
Must have feeding frenzy mini shoe… And silver sparkly and bright blue? Must have! Must have!
Great finds. As far as blah blah boys clothes go, rit dye has been my friend! And as a special bonus my old cardigans are a new color too…
Yes! We love bright shoes around here. I bought these purple vans for my son: http://shop.vans.com/catalog/Vans/en_US/style/79$.html?categoryId=40119 Of course the salesguy assumed I was buying them for a girl because I bought them without my son present but we get lots of compliments on them when we’re out.
Wee little rainbow Vans! eee!
I hear ya! I feel like this is why Oz has been in socks or bare foot for the 9 months of his life thus far. It’s slim pickins’ for cute boy shoes! Love these and will probably have to get the crayola vans for both of us :o)
I love those Vans! But my kids seriously have tennis balls for feet and I cannot get slide-on shoes to stay on them 🙁 Heartbreaking!
It takes all kinds. I buy Lyra boys shoes because Im sick of all the pink sparkly options in the girls sections.
My 4 year old loves his silver boots.
This company is really good at not being too gender specific with a lot of their range.
I have a problem buying too many shoes for myself! Now you show me this! 😉
AAAAAKKKKK! Baby/toddler shoes are so stinking cute I can hardly stand it.
I love the Vans and the super cute gumboots! (i’d get those if i had my own little dude to put in them!)
Just a note, not just for little dudes! My little dudette could rock the shit out of any of these 🙂 Love the rainbows, or the little red hightops!
Ah! My mom and I always talk about how little boys are screwed when it comes to clothing and shoes. Seriously baby blue makes me want to gag and I can only stand so much navy, black, or brown. I’ve totally found some awesome colorful clothing thanks to my mother being a shopping/deal-hunter extraordinaire. :]
I adore the Converse in Dr. Seuss! I want to get a pair but I feel like I’m going to wait until my son’s feet are a little bigger. (He has potato feet.) Keens for kids = BEST THING EVER. 😀
HOP ON POP SHOES!?
That is amazing. I honestly wish I had the dough to spend on those, because my little punkin head would soooo be rocking those next week if I did.
I absolutely love that book. In fact, my partner is “Pops” to our daughter… I’ve always loved the sound of it, probably since my mom read me that book as a child.
But this collection is seriously awesome. And it makes my ovaries scream, “MAKE A LITTLE BOY!”
Little girls don’t have it any better : it’s pink everlasting! So these shoes could serve as a nice “color break” for either gender.
Good job finding such a variety!
I just bought my son one fish two fish converse and they are so cute!
You could also call this article “Colorful toddler girls shoes that aren’t puke pink” I will be purchasing a few of these for my daughter 🙂
Cute! The seafoam (augh, why must that colour name sound so oldladyish) ones are so adorable! Reminds me of a 1950’s car or fridge ^_^
