I'll be honest and admit that searching for mini sneakerheads on Instagram has left me both delighted and shocked. First of all, there are soo many posts, one child prettier than the other and also outrageously stylish. Much more stylish than me, which really almost sent me into a bit of a crisis of purpose now. In the end, the cuteness of the kids prevailed and I now have a Mini Me Sneaker Guide for you!

This post is published on the occasion of Mother's Day 2021, which we want to celebrate with all of you. Make sure to check out our other Mother's Day blogs, we'll read you there!

Nike Air Max 2090

Just last year (2020), the legendary AM90 celebrated its 30th anniversary, and the designers of the Swoosh Brand also launched a new silhouette. The Air Max 2090 was born. Nike wanted to create an icon for the younger generations.

Read more here about the discussion on trend and passion and how icons are created in the first place.

In the following pictures you can get a little inspiration for further Air Max pairings, it's really hard to decide on a colorway even when doing research.

adidas Superstar

The Superstar model was released in 1986 as a low-top version and the first German flat basketball leather sneaker. Particularly significant is the rubber toe forefoot, known as the 'Shell Toe'. In the mid-70s, it was impossible to imagine the NBA without it and it was also popular in the hip-hop and b-boy scene. The kicks gained icon status at the latest through the song 'My adidas' by the hip-hop group 'RUN-D.M.C', who wore the kicks without laces during their performances.

In addition to the adidas Superstar women's models in the classic black/white design, there are also other colorways for the children's silhouettes. We think: a perfect sneaker for a partner look!

Converse Classic White

Converse sneakers are some of the most timeless shoes around, which is why they are so perfect for multiple generations. The brand has been busy this year, releasing several prints on all their models,

browse through our sneaker news for more info about it.

While we chose the classic version for the kids, how about the Run Star Hike model for the mamas? Originally, the Run Star Hike was intended as a women's version, but now men also wear them, what do you think?

PS: For toddlers, there are also so many great prints for the kicks, from unicorns to dinosaurs, it's all there!

Here you come directly to Converse.

REEBOK ROYAL CLASSIC JOGGER

Nothing beats a beautiful classic in a triple version! The Reebok Royal Classic exudes good humour and fresh sport style. The soft upper is beautifully accentuated by the contrasting rubber outsole, while the midsole provides cushioning and comfort.

PUMA Mirage Tech

The Tech pays homage to the classic PUMA running shoe from the 70s with its reinterpretation. The upper is made of mesh with soft PU-coated leather overlays, while the insole is also made of mesh and features the PUMA logo as a screen print. The photos show perfectly how the Mini Me sneakers can look on your feet!

Air Force 1

The Nike Air Force 1 is probably one of the most popular sneakers ever. We have been able to enjoy all imaginable colours and variants. The first AF1 was released in 1982, and 25 years later (in 2007) the Swoosh Brand released an anniversary version, which today bears the abbreviation Air Force 1 07. The differences are marginal. The most striking feature of the Air Force 1 07 silhouette is the square lace locks (deubrés), which are slightly rounded on the OG.

These great kicks are part of the 'Paint Splatter' pack, read more about that here. In any case, you and the kids can discover your artistic side. And you don't see stains at first glance either 😉!
