Tsukihoshi has been perfecting super-cute, sporty kids' shoes since 1873. Based in Japan, the company studies the evolution of children’s walking habits as they grow, and uses its research to develop cutting-edge features that promote healthy foot development. From the brightly colored Marina sneaker to the Baby Arisa — an adorable, Velcro-fastened Mary Jane — every pair offers sturdy heel stabilizers, flexible and anti-bacterial outsoles, arch support, and barefoot-like comfort to help stabilize babies and toddlers as they learn how to walk. Living up to their reputation as “a parent’s dream shoe,” Tsukihoshi sneakers are durable, quick-drying, and machine-washable. Awarded a Seal of Acceptance by the American Podiatric Medical Association, Tsukihoshi's also been a hit with celeb parents such as Heidi Klum, Julia Roberts, and Jon Stewart.
