Brands including Nike, Uggs, Converse, Doc Martens and Timberland all offer their best-selling shoe in children's sizes, which basically creates smaller versions of the brand classics we all know.
Brands that have a strong liaison with youth culture, such as Converse and Doctor Martens, are seeing a growth demand and revival of this style in the youth and kidswear markets.
Even newborn categories are gaining popularity. The emphasis is on comfort, so easy-on socks for newborns, baby soft-soled shoes and miniature versions of the well-known adult versions.
