1. For the Future Pro: Basketball-Inspired Silhouettes

The baby boy or girl in your life may not have a favourite basketball team yet, but you can still get them ready with a pint-size basketball shoe from Nike. Find offerings inspired by the greats, including Zion Williamson and King LeBron James.

To keep up with tiny strides, these miniature models sport a durable design, adjustable straps, lightweight materials and supportive cushioning, meaning little ones can take their first steps in comfort. These sneaker options are also easy to take off once the game is over.

2. For Sunny Weather: Sandals and Slides

During sunny walks in your local area, a trip to the beach or poolside playtime, a pair of cute baby sandals or slides is a must-have. Easy slip-on options enable little ones to get in and out of the water quickly or run around on the grass easily.

Prefer sandals to stay on? Some sandals in this collection have made-for-water designs with grooved, rubber outsoles for traction on wet surfaces. For outdoor play, options with full toe coverage will keep their little feet protected, while added openings promote airflow to keep them cool.

3. For the Cold Months: Boots

Keep your baby boy or girl warm with a pair of little Nike boots. Boots made from real or synthetic, durable leather let little ones splash in puddles, while boots featuring a cosy, fur-like lining provide extra warmth.

Outdoor adventurers can keep their little feet comfy with Max Air-cushioned offerings, or choose a boot with added traction on the sole for extreme explorers.

4. For the Nature Lovers: Sustainable Materials

Babies can walk, run and play in Nike shoes made with at least 20 percent sustainable materials. Some feature Nike Grind rubber—made from recycled factory scraps that show up as colourful speckles on the outsoles.

From easy slip-ons to straps and laces, these lightweight, play-ready shoes are made for crawling around and taking first steps—and will match any outfit.
