|Many of us sneakerheads are also proud parents and there is no way our kid will endure a childhood of sportin the skippies that some of us had to wear. New Balance and Sesame Street has a new set of kicks to make sure that our kids are laced properly.
Many companies have come with the comics, cartoon, and kid’s show “inspired” sneakers, but New Balance has an official deal with the PBS show we ALL grew up on. New Balance has released the classic 574 in a series of Sesame Street styles including pairs modeled after Elmo, Cookie Monster, and Oscar the Grouch. Besides colors and imagery of the respective characters, the liner and tongue feature a furry material similar to that of the character the shoe represents.
New Balance Kids has long been a financial supporter of Sesame Street and other programs to promote children health, but these sneakers take this commitment another step further. The Sesame Street New Balance shoes come in sizes from infant size up to grade school sizes – sorry adults.
Finishline has the entire lineup from toddler to gradeschool.
