Sure, boys have it easy on Yom Kippur—until they’ve undergone their bar mitzvah, they’re free to eat and drink all they like. That’s why it’s important to lay down the law early when it comes to leather: start them on the forbidden stuff early, and by the time the heavy transition comes up, they’ll have no problem saying “no thanks” to breakfast, lunch and dinner.
We’re joking, of course. Sort of. The flip-side to Yom Kippur shoes for boys is that many of them can pass for normal footwear on any other day, since leather isn’t as common in kids’ shoes. But avoiding garish Croc clogs and colorful sneakers at synagogue is still a wise idea.
