Dr. Seuss books have a cool factor that makes them weird and interesting and funny even after you’ve (supposedly) outgrown them. It makes sense, then, that they inspire rap mash-ups, are studied by of anthropologists, and are the books that are the most fun to read to your kids. Now, their characters and designs are also on a new collection of Skechers for kids.
There are Velcro-strapped sneakers for little kids and, for older kids and women, canvas slip-ons and skate-inspired sneakers, all featuring Thing 1 and Thing 2, the Cat in the Hat, and other themes from the books. And the cool thing about them is that, unlike most kids sneakers plastered with multi-colored characters, the collection manages not to be obnoxious. Many designs are subdued, even subtle, featuring colorful Dr. Seuss-inspired designs that are just the right amount of weird. Here are our favorites.
These playful sneakers are decorated with a classic Dr. Seuss scene from The Cat in the Hat involving dozens of characters creating mayhem at the beach. They feature memory foam insoles and are machine-washable, and their scrunchy back allows kids to easily slip them on without too much assistance.
