Kids Streetwear

In their early years, kids mostly don’t have a say in what they are wearing. We choose their clothes by our own standards, our own tastes, our own style. We choose according to quality, safety and comfort, we find clothes that suit them well and are made of high-quality fabrics, which are gentle on their skin. However, slowly but surely as they grow each kid starts developing their own taste, and sometimes it may not coincide with our own tastes.

Clothes are of course a useful gift, but to make it much more special and, at the same time, be a fun parent, you can go for something snazzy that your kid will love wearing. For instance, you can buy urban kids clothes for your child that not only look cool but also meet all of your standards in regards to quality, durability, comfort and safety.

Streetwear has been around for decades, evolving and incorporating different elements. For years, this fashion style has been characteristic mainly for people of certain subcultures, including the skateboarding scene, the hip hop scene, the punk scene, etc., all of which have influenced it in some ways. Nevertheless, nowadays urban streetwear garments have seeped into the mainstream, and have even served as an inspiration for some of the biggest clothing brands and designers. But, regardless of what is happening in this fashion style, one thing is certain – it’s always cool and it’s almost always interesting for youngsters.

So, if you want to enrich your child’s wardrobe with good quality clothes or footwear, that is also comfortable, and at the same time you want to be cool, urban kids clothes are the right answer. Choose your gift just like you would any other. For one, find a reliable retailer that provides quality products from good streetwear brands. This way you will know that you are getting clothes that will be able to withstand all the wear and tear an active kid can put it through. And finally, don’t forget to take your child’s likes and dislikes into account.

There is no doubt that kids streetwear is cute and fun, and your child will most likely be happy to get it and will love wearing it. However, if clothes aren’t what you have in mind, but rather something more entertaining, less necessary, and totally cool, you may think about getting them a gift on wheels, such as a skateboard, a scooter, roller skates, a BMX bike, etc. (Of course, if you go this road, at one point you will have to turn to kids urban fashion, to suit their new favourite sport, or you can simply include kids urban wear clothes or shoes in the gift.)

People of all ages around the world love riding a bike or roaming around town with their roller skates or their skateboard. But when it comes to kids, these are some of their most favourite activities. They love the thrill of the speed, the wind in their hair, the feeling of freedom, independence, capability, skillfulness, and so on. But surprising your child with a skateboard or a scooter isn’t only about seeing their adorable expression of joy. All of these activities come with an incredible set of advantages for their physical and mental health, as well as their cognitive and motor development, and many more.

Protective Gear

One thing that should definitely be included in this very cool gift, is protective gear. Because however cool parents we might be, first and foremost we worry about our children. So, whether you give them a skateboard, a BMX bike or a scooter, you should also buy kids skate protective gear and include it in the gift. Of course, there is a possibility that your kid doesn’t think protective gear is cool, but you should make sure that they always use their cool wheels wearing it.

The goal is to protect your child from injury, more specifically to protect their head, legs and arms, their hands, elbows, wrists and ankles from falls. Kids protective gear should include knee pads, elbow pads and wrist guards, which you can get separately, or you can find sets of pads and guards, and of course, a helmet. There are two most important factors to keep in mind when you are getting protective gear for anyone, especially for beginners and children.

First of all, you should always be certain that the kids skate protective gear fits well, and that it is placed properly. Secondly, it’s important that the safety accessories you are getting are reliable, resistant, hard-wearing and long-lasting. Of course, the best quality gear will most likely be more costly. However, safety is crucial.

Helmets are an essential part of the protective gear, regardless of whether your child is skateboarding or riding a bike. They protect their head from injuries from falling or other impacts, which is why they should never leave the house without one.

Knee pads and elbow pads come with adjustable fasteners, which go around the back of the knee or elbow. They feature a cap, made of a hard plastic shell that is filled with paddings, like foam, which will absorb the force from any impact, protecting the knee or elbow. They should allow for a normal range of motion, and shouldn’t be restrictive. However, they also shouldn’t be too loose.
