Talk About Cute Shoes! See Kai Run Review & Giveaway~#20

I had never heard of See Kai Run until this review. I did some research, and found out so many exciting things about the company, and read about so many happy customers- I knew I had to try them out!

It was love at first sight, when we opened the box and saw the Jennae shoes from See Kai Run.
"Are doz *my* pink shooce? My new pink shooce? Dare mine, mommy?"
"Yes baby, they are!"
"On my shooce, mommy? On my shooce!"

As soon as I took them out of the box, I knew these shoes were something special. The See Kai Run website describes them "Handcrafted from butter-soft sheepskin leather", and Oh-My-Goodness, they mean butter soft! I could only imagine that if they made these shoes in *my* size that they would feel like I was wearing a glove, or nothing at all, or the most expensive silk or leather- Seriously- they're THAT soft! Instantly, Abbigaile declared these shoes her new favorite shoes, and she wears them everywhere. She's been seen at the mall HERE, at the carnival, and even at the Marketplace at Downtown Disney. Everywhere we go, someone stops us to ask where we got them, it's to the point where I think I am going to ask them to send me a ton of business cards!

The quality of these shoes is exceptional, I've noticed that we've had them long enough to see that the insoles start indenting to her foot, so it really gives her a great fit (think the way Reefs take the shape of your feet). The customer service is awesome; I had some questions about the lining, and I got a quick and courteous answer right away. See Kai Run shoes have been given the APMA Seal of Acceptance, which is only given after passing extremely high standards for foot health and functionality.

See Kai Run shoes are available for both boys and girls, and from Smaller sizes 0-6 mos. through 12-18 mos. and in toddler sizes 3-9. Whether you are looking for a pair of sandals, dress up shoes, sneakers, or regular every day shoes, the selection of bold, beautiful colors will allow you to find just the perfect pair. For your older children, See Kai Run offers the Eleven line, which carries sizes 9-3.

Not only does See Kai Run carry something for everyone, the company itself has been very active in giving back to the community as well as the entire world through their partnership with Soles4Souls and several other charitable organizations.

So hard to pick ONE favorite pair- they are all so cute! I think if I won I'd pick "Nancy". As for a See Kai Run fact: See Kai Run was created by Kai's mom and she designs the shoes herself twice per year :)
