|In past we have picked these cute sneakers up for the kids on trips to europe but NOW we can get them here too!! Bensimon is a brand created by a visionary Serge Bensimon - he started making wonderful things for larger brands in the 1980s and then decided to do it for himself! And that he did... he has since created stores with books, clothing and other fun lifestyle things! But his shoes will always be a favorite! Made in the feeling of army surplus they are rubber sole with cotton lining, they can be worn with laces or just take them ouT! OR you can step on the back of the shoe (as a slipper/slip on) or just keep it as a tie on shoe! (my kids keep their ties IN!) Just easy and color shoes... that's what these are all about!
