Dog Clothing: Top 10 Best Dog Shoes and Socks

dog shoes, dog boots, dog socks

The last time we discussed dog footwear, the focus was on protection for adverse weather. From disposable booties to paw treatments, we focused on products that would keep salt and other chemicals from irritating and harming dog paws.

This time out, we’re aiming for something a little different and going purely for looks. There’s no real reason to buy your dog fly kicks, but if you’re so inclined, it helps to have some to choose from. These don’t have quite the protective capabilities of their more-rugged counterparts, but if you want your dog to match you or just don a sweet getup for any reason, you might as well accessorize their paws, too.

We looked for a range of interesting or designer sneaks, which you could perhaps pair with a designer collar if you wanted to go all out. Summer is upon us, so strap some killer shoes on your dog and hit the town.

One thing to note about fashionable dog footwear is that most of it seems aimed at smaller dogs. When shopping, if you have a medium to large breed, chances are you’re looking for the largest size the offer, but you should keep in mind that most of these are aimed at toy breeds. The sizes are noted where available, but many reviewers note that the sizing charts are inaccurate. Assume all of them run small. On the plus side, this means they could work for your cat, too.

For the trendy pup, here are the top ten best dog shoes with which to accessorize.


1. Doggie Air Jordans: Uxcell Air Mesh

(Uxcell)

Not unlike a killer pair of basketball shoes, we first featured these Uxcell Air Mesh dog sneakers in the aforementioned paw protector post. The uppers on these athletic-looking shoes are made of ethylene plastic with rubbers soles. These are size two, which equates to a paw size of 1.6 inches long by 1.3 inches wide. Other sizes and colors are available here, including blue and pink.

  • Extra small: 1.26 inches long by 1.02 inches wide

Just like your favorite All Stars, there is of course a version of Converse for dogs. These are available in blue or pink canvas with a rubber anti-slip sole. The insides are lined with velvet for maximum comfort, while the laces make it so you can adjust for the perfect fit. There are three sizes available, all aimed at small breeds:

  • Size 4: 1.85 inches long by 1.37 inches wide

4. Pet Show Star Dog Sandals

(Pet Show)

If you’re looking for something in a fashionable sandal, maybe these red, white, and blue themed shoes will work for your little pup. These are closed with adjustable velcro so they’re easy to put on. The material is a mix of polyurethane and leather for decent resistance to water. As with the others, these have a rubber anti-slip sole for traction. You can get them either in this color way, or in mostly red with the colors swapped. There are five size choices for dogs up to 15 pounds:

  • Extra extra small: 3.2 centimeters long by 2.6 centimeters wide
  • Extra small: 4.1 centimeters long by 3.3 centimeters wide
  • Small: 4.5 centimeters long by 3.5 centimeters wide
  • Medium: 4.8 centimeters long by 4.2 centimeters wide
  • Large: 5.3 centimeters long by 4.7 centimeters wide

5. Pet Life Waterproof Flower Pet Sandals

(Pet Life)

If you’re looking for something a bit more subtle than those sandals, which might be better suited to the Fourth of July, try these cute floral versions instead. The uppers are made of PVC, so they’re entirely waterproof. Again, the enclosure on these is velcro, so they’re easy to put on. In addition to orange, you can get them in Ocean Blue and Neon Green. The following sizes are given in inches, but based on the reviews, we wonder if they mean centimeters instead of inches in the sizing guide. We’ve presented it as they have it written to be on the safe side, but don’t expect these to fit dogs much larger than 15 pounds, as far as we can tell.

  • Extra small: 2.4 inches long by 1.5 inches wide
  • Small: 2.8 inches long by 1.7 inches wide
  • Medium: 3 inches long by 1.8 inches wide
  • Large: 3.4 inches long by 2 inches wide
  • Extra large: 3.7 inches long by 2.2 inches wide

6. abcGoodefg Waterproof Nonslip Plaid Sports Socks

(abcGoodefg)

Sock-style dog shoes are another good way to add a little fashion to your pooch’s daily routine in addition to being pretty good protection. While there are five different patterns to choose from here, I think the plaid is pretty fetching. The bottoms of these are coated in black PVC, making them durable and waterproof. There’s an elastic at the top of each sock, but they also throw in a velcro strap in case you’re having trouble keeping them up. Depending on the pattern you go with, there are up to seven sizes:

  • Size 0: 3.5 centimeters long by 2.8 centimeters wide
  • Size 1: 3.8 centimeters long by 3.2 centimeters wide
  • Size 2: 4.5 centimeters long by 3.7 centimeters wide
  • Size 3: 5.2 centimeters long by 4.3 centimeters wide
  • Size 4: 6 centimeters long by 5 centimeters wide
  • Size 5: 6.8 centimeters long by 5.6 centimeters wide
  • Size 6: 8 centimeters long by 6.6 centimeters wide

7. Scheppend Waterproof Whale Dog Socks

(Scheppend)

The black PVC coating is pretty good, but there’s also an option where the waterproofing is part of the design itself. This is definitely on the cutesy side, emblazoned with an adorable whale design. A hippo and a “big eye” (an owl, possibly?) are also available, if you prefer. The size chart is the same as the option above:

  • Size 0: 3.5 centimeters long by 2.8 centimeters wide
  • Size 1: 3.8 centimeters long by 3.2 centimeters wide
  • Size 2: 4.5 centimeters long by 3.7 centimeters wide
  • Size 3: 5.2 centimeters long by 4.3 centimeters wide
  • Size 4: 6 centimeters long by 5 centimeters wide
  • Size 5: 6.8 centimeters long by 5.6 centimeters wide
  • Size 6: 8 centimeters long by 6.6 centimeters wide

8. Doggie Adidas: Pet Life Spring Mesh Shoes

(Pet Life)

Want your dog to match your Adidas Superstars? They have those, too. These mesh dog sneakers allow maximum breathability and are better for warmer months when you might be keeping particularly sensitive paws off hot pavement. They also have the rubber anti-slip soles, which could be used for keeping older dogs from slipping on hardwood floors. They’re zip-up with an additional velcro band to keep them in place. These are aimed at toy breeds, and though the measurement is given in inches, we think they might mean centimeters. This is the small size, supposedly 2.8 inches long by 1.7 inches wide. There’s also a medium size (3 inches long by 1.8 inches wide), and you might even be able to find a large size (3.4 inches long by 3 inches wide), too. Again, we think those given increments are off, so base the largest size on a 15 pound dog and work backwards for a better idea.

(Adarl)

What’s better than an animal wearing another animal’s pattern? Probably a lot of things, but the point is, if you wanted your dog to sport some leopard print, this is the option for you. These are canvas high-tops with a Converse-like sole made of durable anti-slip rubber. These are legitimately lace-up shoes, too, just like the real deal. As with all of these, expect them to run small, though you do have eight different sizes to choose from:

  • Size 1 (XS): 1.65 inches long by 1.38 inches wide
  • Size 2 (S): 1.85 inches long by 1.5 inches wide
  • Size 3 (M): 2.09 inches long by 1.69 inches wide

Somewhere between sneakers and socks, these paw protectors have a slightly stiffer rubber bottom with deeper tread. Otherwise, the uppers are made of a breathable mesh-like fabric and have an adjustable, high-visibility velcro strap that will fit most dogs. According to the measurements, these are also aimed at larger breeds. The available sizes are as follows:

  • Size 5: 2.9 inches long by 2.6 inches wide
  • Size 6: 3.1 inches long by 2.8 inches wide
