Young feet grow fast, and that's one very good reason to buy sandals rather than closed-toe shoes. An adjustable, adaptable sandal or flip flop can comfortably accommodate a fair amount of growth without parents having to buy the shoes too big. Most models are also very easy to clean so it doesn't matter if your little ones get them sandy, dusty, or muddy. Often all you need to do is run your kids hiking sandals underneath a tap and they're as clean as a whistle.
