Summer is coming to an end, and our children are returning to school. By the time school starts, my children always need new shoes. This time, I got a pair of shoes from See Kai Run for my son. This brand was created in 2004 by a Seattle mom who wanted a well designed shoe for her son, but she also wanted shoes that promoted a healthy foot development. She knows that a child’s foot is different than an adult’s foot, which is why their shoes should not be made in the same way. The See Kai Run shoes are flexible, to provide more balance for your little one. They are also wider than normal around the toes, so that the child’s toes have room to move, instead of being restricted. They are easy to get on, and they stay on once in place, because of the perfect fit that they provide. Another awesome thing about the company is that their shoes are awarded the Seal of Acceptance from the American Podiatric Medical Associations.
The shoes I chose for my son are the Dillon II shoes, which are part of the big kids section. They are a classic fisherman sandal and are super stylish. The shoes come in a total of three colors: brown, gray, and navy blue. They have a variety of sizes as well, but the size options depend on the color shoe you choose. The gray color option has the least amount of size choices. If you are unsure of what size your child will need, they have a size guide available on the website to help the decision making easier for you. The website claims that the shoes fit true to size, so no need to order a size up or down. The material of the shoes also depends on the color. Some are leather and some are a leather and canvas mix. The insole of the shoe provides comfort and breathability. The outsole is made of rubber and designed for flexibility, which is great for children who tend to be hard on shoes. A hook-and-loop strap on the shoes give a secure fit and also adjustability, providing a custom fit for each individual child. Cleanup is pretty easy which is really convenient for parents. The website instructs parents to use a damp cloth with a small amount of detergent to cleanse, and then allow the shoes to air dry. These shoes retail for $58 dollars, but they are on sale for $29 (half off)!
My son absolutely loved these shoes for the summer, as did I. They matched many of the outfits he wore, and they held up extremely well. If you are interested in purchasing a pair of See Kai Run shoes, they have many shoes that would work perfectly as school shoes. They carry many styles of shoes for many different seasons and occasions. They have boys and girls shoes as well, so you are sure to find a pair of shoes that are perfect for your child.
