The Best Summer Shoes for Boys Boys

Welcome to Life Without Pink! You can subscribe to me via RSS feed or find me at Facebook and Twitter. Thanks for visiting!Tweet Now that my boys are getting older, they play really hard. That’s why I look for summer shoes that not only allow their feet to breathe but also help give them the support they need while they run, jump, and climb.

Cars Land at Disneyland California Adventure (Video) #disneysmmoms
