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.
This stretchy, mesh, sock-like design is perfect for the lace-averse. Kids can easily and independently slip then on and off, and won't trip over loose laces.
Kids learning their lefts and rights can get some help from Thing 1 and Thing 2, which are featured on these sporty striped sneakers. They're slip-on but have an easy hook feature, so kids can put them on themselves but they won't slip off.
These casual and colorful slip-on sneakers are quintessential Dr. Seuss. They have a flatform style and memory foam insole.
For older kids or those who like the illustration style of Dr. Seuss, these illustrated slip-ons allude to the famous books in a more subtle way. They have memory foam and a 1-inch heel for more support.
Copy the Cat in the Hat's signature look with these playful red-and-white striped slip-on sneakers. They feature a patterned lining, cooling memory foam, and a shock-absorbing midsole.
This whimsical take on the classic white sneaker features Thing 1 and Thing 2 from 'The Cat in the Hat.' They're made from synthetic leather, have memory foam that keeps feet cool, and rubber bottoms for extra traction.
For a more athletic sneaker, this women's style has that Dr. Seuss look with the functionality of a lace-up front, 2.5-inch heel, and memory foam insole.
