Sandshoes, Sneakers, Plimsolls, Pumps... I went back to Para Rubber to see what else I could find, after discovering the yellow gumboots(refer Kids). These white commando canvas shoes also from Sandford industries have according to the website "been a kiwi classic for years"(may have been BIG south of the Bombays!!). At $54.99, they cost a bit more than your kmart/warehouse offerings, but try them on, they are super comfy, sturdy and breathable (perfect if you forget your socks), and they feel like they are going to last more than one summer. Team them up with the heart print dress for a Suki Stackhouse (True Blood) vibe. Yes they do come with laces!!
