One Step Ahead: Beachy keen

Summer is in full swing, which means plenty of trips to the pool, lake or beach on the family agenda.

And, while fun in the sun is definitely something every family looks forward to, sunburned kiddies are not. One Step Ahead‘s collection of Sun Smarties clothes, swimwear (check out the darling pink polka dot ruffle tanksuit), stay-put sunglasses, sun hats and outdoor toys like a super cool Peek N’ Play Ball Pit have 50+ UPF protection built right in, making it easy to keep kids’ skin safe when up against harmful UV rays.

Keep their feet covered, too, with One Step Ahead’s 2-in-1 Land and Sea Sandals. They help kids keep their footing whether climbing or wading since their all-terrain style is ideal for rough, hot ground and slick, wet surfaces. Hooks and loops ensure a proper, user-friendly fit, with flexible soles that feature a stay-fresh antimicrobial liner. Remove the heel strap to convert them to slides, letting fast-growing feet get use out of them next year.

Want more coverage?

Go for Amphibious Kids Beach shoes. They drain water more effectively thanks to mesh uppers and unique ventilated soles, are adjustable for a custom fit, have a high-protection toe bump and heel guard, and sport shoe styling to give little feet the comfort and support they need, sans the blisters that come with ill-fitting kicks, ensuring the only crabs you meet will be eight-legged kind.
