Back to school is almost here, and Skechers has you covered in the shoe department. Their kids shoe line is enormous! They have some adorable new shoes for girls called Twinkle Toes, which not only include glitter and sequins, but colorful lights that blink with each step.

The boys line is just as cool with Hot Lights designs in a range of colors and styles. We were lucky enough to try out two pairs from the line. My little guy chose the Skechers Hot Lights in Damager – Police II featured below.

Talk about some fun shoes! Here are a few of my favorite features of the sneakers:

  • Mesh fabric panels for cooling effect
  • Synthetic toe bumper overlay with cool headlight design
  • Front headlights and top police roof lights blink with every step
  • On/Off switch on top strap activates or deactivates light-up feature
  • Soft fabric shoe lining
  • Shock absorbing midsole
  • Rugged all terrain flexible rubber traction outsole

Not only are the shoes really cool for kids to wear, but they are affordable and comfortable! 

We also received the Skechers Hot Lights Ibex – Humvee in black and blue. They are also available in black/gray.

Again, another pair of awesome shoes that my little guy loves! This pair includes many of the features mentioned above, with the exception of the on/off switch on the straps for the lights.

He has worn them for a few weeks and can’t wait to show them off at school next month.

My baby is starting Kindergarten soon!! Say it isn’t so. :( Okay…back to the shoes!

You can find the Skechers Hot Lights boys shoes & Twinkle Toes girls shoes at,, Sears,, and other retailers nationwide.

The selection of designs and styles are huge, so be sure to visit their site to find your child’s perfect pair of shoes. The kids line ranges from toddler to youth sizes. 

In case you are looking for some really comfortable women’s walking shoes, check out my earlier review for their GOwalk line. I’m actually wearing them today as I travel to Chicago for a huge blog conference called Blogher. There was no way I was leaving these behind while I attending this massive event with tons of walking in store!

  1. I love sketchers! Those twinkle toes are a pair my granddaughter would love to have for school. Too cute!

  2. I like how you write your articles! Thank you.

  3. I try to buy Sketchers for my daughter – she loves them! I even bought the Bella Ballerina ones – then she said they did not really work, but does not stop her from wanting others. Great review – I would agree…

  4. I wish they made the Twinkle Toes in adult sizes!!

    My oldest loves his Sketchers and that’s the main brand of shoe he picks when we buy new shoes.

  5. That Twinkle Toes design is one of the cutest pair of shoes I have ever seen. I’m with Sara and wish they came in my size.

  6. My nephews love the cool designs that Sketchers offer. I wish they made twinkle toes for my size because I’d totally sport those lol

  7. My daughter has a pair of Twinkle toes but wont wear them….she is super picky!

  8. The Twinkle Toes are so cute.

    I need to get both of my boys some new tennis shoes. I usually don’t think of Skechers for kids shoes, so I’m glad I saw this post before starting my search.
