I recently had the opportunity to review a pair of See Kai Run shoes. They have a large selection and it was so hard to narrow it down to one pair. I chose the Kaya, from their latest styles! If you’ll allow me to tell you a little bit about our experience with See Kai Run, then you’ll also have the opportunity to enter a giveaway generously sponsored by See Kai Run.
The company was started by a mother with a toddler. She had a desire to create comfortable shoes with flexible soles for her little boy, Kai, to wear that would be healthy for his developing feet. When I read that, immediately my confidence in this brand increased. Knowing that it was designed by a mom for her own child, I knew that they would be a quality product!
They have a “Smaller” line which features adorable styles with suede soles in sizes 0-18 months and they have the “See Kai Run” line with the flexible sole available for 6 months – 3 years. Shoes are available for purchase in their online store or you can find a retail location near you!
I mentioned in my initial announcement that the customer service was efficient and friendly, the shipping was speedy and one of the most impressive things was their printable sizing chart. Most companies put a size chart on their site; you measure and order accordingly, but with this one there is no measuring involved. (Hurray!) You simply print it out, have your child stand on it and order the correct size!
So of course the shoes arrived, fitting exactly as I expected them to! As soon as I opened the box, I was happy to discover that they were even more adorable up close than in the online picture. Now for the the bottom line – adorable is important but how hold up is crucial! Any shoes can look great if they are only ever used for pictures and church but I’m interested how they stand up to the adventures of everyday toddler life. I imagine that you’re interested in that too.
Well, a month is certainly more than enough time for Chloe, my rough and tumble princess, to completely wreck a pair of shoes! Chloe went scootering in them, rode her tricycle, went for walks, played in the sandbox, went to the park and wore them to church. The answer is…yes, the hold up beautifully! Here is a close up picture of the shoes. The dirt and black marks wiped off easily with a damp cloth. There is some minor stuffing on the toes but not anywhere near what I honestly expected.
The shoes seemed very comfortable. Her feet were never hot or sweaty when I removed the shoes. They have a Velcro strap that is easy enough for her to undo herself and yet it was strong enough to keep them firmly in place through the day! The shoes are wide enough to give her plenty of room and the soles are so flexible that my mother said they “practically walk themselves”.
Overall, I am very impressed with them. Definitely a quality shoe. I don’t have a single negative thing to say about them. The only thing that comes to mind is that if the rubber sole was extended up the front a smidgen, it would eliminate any scuffing of the toes altogether.
You know, I was impressed with the confidence that See Kai Run has in their own products to be willing to have real life little ones racing around in their shoes just living life and then have a review done. This is just one mom’s honest opinion; I think these shoes are awesome!
From now until May 8th they are offering FREE shipping for all USA orders online!
