For everyday wear or special occasions, this elevated style in luxurious leather is an elegant option for her wardrobe.
Mary janes were worn by young French kings and in modern times – they became known as a transitional style for babies that were beginning to take their first steps. In the 1920s, the classic mary jane became a fixture among school children, replacing the rigid boots and galoshes that were the popular styles of the time.

In the 18th century, fashion introduced a low-profile boot for men finished in soft grain leather with a lace-up or button vamp. This style became widely popular—even trickling into women’s fashion—and by the end of the 19th century, it became the go-to shoe for toddlers thanks to its shape, which envelopes and comfortably secures the foot.
Fashioned in vibrant colors with tonal or contrast stitching, Jacadi’s take on the timeless moccasin is a casual, comfortable style for children. Crafted in nubuck suede or smooth leather, this classic style is a perfect fit for both dressed-down days and special occasions.
Originally inspired by the soft leather slippers worn by North American Indian tribes, the moccasin was modernized with a sole and quickly broke onto the fashion scene. This silhouette was a huge hit on American college campuses as the penny loafer, and even across the pond, British children were sporting the style.
Inspired by the traditional mary jane, Jacadi’s t-strap bootie is styled with a double or single t-strap on the vamp, which securely fastens at the ankle. This playful yet elegant style, usually finished with scalloped trim or bow details, provides the ultimate support for growing feet and new walkers.
At the end of the 19th century, the elegant t-strap heel took fashion by storm and became the iconic shoe for women of the Roaring Twenties—and was the top choice shoe for dancing The Charleston ! By the 1950s, it became a popular style for school, and continues to trend in fashion today. Contemporary versions of the t-strap can even feature bohemian style accents, like floral details and crepe soles.
Inspired by the ballerina slipper, Jacadi’s flats are crafted in a flexible, comfortable fit. Playful colors, elegant lines and bow details dazzle this classic silhouette for girls.
This soft, round-toe flat inspired by ballerina dancers has made a statement in fashion since it first appeared. The versatile style was a staple in women’s wardrobes during the 1930s, becoming the perfect match for chic trousers in the 1950s, and was the go-to shoe among teenage girls in the 60s.
With its durable, anti-slip sole and two-tone styling, Jacadi’s boat shoe is a functional pair with fashionable accents. For boys and girls, this time-tested style is an easy choice for school days, play days and anything in between.
Boat shoes were designed in 1930 as a comfortable shoe for seamen that wouldn’t damage the deck of their boats. The style was later adopted by US Navy sailors and eventually trickled into the mainstream fashion circuit during the 1960s. Today, this beloved style is worn by all ages.
