Athletic Propulsion Labs (a.k.a. APL) makes hands down the best sneakers (and not just because they were banned by the NBA for giving players unfair advantages). I’m talking better than adidas, New Balance and even Nike when it comes to both functionality and aesthetics. And that goes double for their line of kids sneakers.
The brand’s Techloom Bliss style – a slip-on sneaker – is available in kids sizes 1-4 and 8-13. It keeps feet secure enough to run and jump in, while being easy to put on and take off. Plus, they’re available in a wide variety of colors and patterns. For adults my personal favorite is their TechLoom Phantom style, but you really can’t go wrong with anything from the brand (and even though it’s cheesy, it’s always cute to match with your LO!).
