Why stop at toys?
If your kids can’t get enough of their favorite Disney characters, licensed shoes make a great holiday gift. Some of the market’s biggest brands, including Ugg and Adidas, offer fun footwear looks inspired by Disney’s most popular films, whether it’s enduring classics such as “Toy Story” or new favorites such as “Moana.”
For girls, Ugg has a pair of “Frozen”-inspired sheepskin boots, designed to mirror the colorful Nordic gowns that characters Anna and Elsa wore on their coronation day. Also there available is a shimmery, snowflake-print boot with a Swarovski crystal button, inspired by the movie’s wintery kingdom of Arendelle.
The offering ranges from all-over printed styles to more abstract interpretations such as the adorable Old Skool shoe, inspired by Woody’s sheriff’s outfit, which features a black-and-white cow print, accented with denim and leather.Vans brought Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Bo Peep and the rest of the “Toy Story” gang to life on a must-have capsule of sneakers for kids and adults.
Brazilian brand Mini Melissa celebrates two of Disney’s most iconic characters, Minnie and Mickey Mouse, on cherry-red Mary Jane shoes, while Havaianas detailed a pair of boys’ flip-flops with a retro-inspired “Cars” print.
