1 Trend, 3 Ways: Cool Lace-Up Sneaks!

From the press line to the city streets, we’ve spotted celeb tots (and tweens) rocking some pretty fab footwear. Lourdes Leon, 13, Angel Brown, 3, and Willow Smith, 9, make a bold fashion statement in hip hi-top sneakers.

Known for their unique bead detailing, Lelli Kelly definitely delivers with their Floral High-Top Sneaker ($85). They may look girlie, but they’re sturdy enough for the playground.

Dawn, the Converse Extension 1’s are not currently sold in any stores, but if you’re interested can contact the designer directly at info@darylvanwouw.com. Hope that helps!

What Willow is wearing is supposed to be “cool”? Yikes! I’m glad I’m not a kid! 😉

I still cant get over the fact that these people shaved their kids heads and think it looks cool!
A 3 yr old really can’t choose to cut their hair like that and allowing a 9 yr old to is just wrong.

Don’t really care for the shoes, but the kids all are cute. Lourdes is the splitting image of her mother and just a beauty.
