Back to School shopping gives me all the feels! New beginnings, fresh starts, lots of changes, and lots of "firsts". One thing that never changes is my children's need for new shoes each school year so I always save myself the run around and shop first at See Kai Run! We're excited to show you what is new at See Kai Run and offer a giveaway too!
While it can be overwhelming to think about each of my children needing rain boots, snow boots, gym shoes, and dress shoes, the most important is a fantastic pair of sneakers -- every day shoes that they wear more days than others during the school year. That's where I started when at no cost to facilitate this review, I was picking out shoes for my boys, and See Kai Run has the most awesome sneakers this season.
One of my boys loves the color red and hasn't owned a pair of high-tops before, so when he saw this pair of Dane shoes in Burgundy Denim, he knew instantly that they were his first choice. I'm not "in the know" when it comes to 1st grade fashion, but these look like they could be "cool kid" shoes, for sure. The combination of the fabric uppers of denim and canvas look so great together.
Since he's really a last-second run-out-the-door kind of kid, hook and loop straps and faux elastic laces are the answer. They stay secure on his feet while there is still a little remove for adjusting at the ankle.
I like how high-tops are a little more supportive for active play. The iconic herringbone rubber outsole pattern is gripping and offers great traction and my son says they are super comfortable. He's been extremely careful with his new shoes because he wants them to stay as clean as possible all school year!
Next up are the cutest pair of Mary Jane's! My toddler daughter is such a girly-girl, and would wear Sunday shoes every day if I let her. I've found that girls dress shoes tend to be thin and poorly constructed, but I feel like the See Kai Run dress shoes are just as sturdy and supportive as a pair of good sneakers.
The thick and flexible outsole on these Jane II shoes offers great traction so they're great for all kinds of weather. The leather-lined footbed is still breathable and allows moisture to evaporate for all-day comfort.
I also love the thick strap across the top that allows for growing adjust-ability as well as a secure fit. Notice the cute scallops along the topline edging! These are just so adorable! Their simplicity also makes them a great choice for school uniforms.
These Jane II shoes also come in a black patent leather which is quite shiny and classy. I don't know who loves these shoes more -- me or my daughter!
Now, my oldest son's fashion choices have really changed this year. Suddenly, he wants nothing to do with characters on his clothes or backpack, and only wants to wear styles that are simple and don't really stand out. These Payton black leather high tops really sang to him! They let him blend in and yet they are still the coolest shoes in the classroom.
These high-top sneakers are all-leather with faux elastic laces. Notice the padded collar and tongue for extra comfort and the design couldn't be more classic and cool!
I'm glad there is a rubber toe cap that not only adds protection, but it also keeps his shoes looking nice. I'm also happy to report that this kid was mowing the lawn in his new shoes last night, and I was able to scrub all the grass stains out of the white outsoles without a problem!
My boys are so happy in their See Kai Run shoes! They can't wait to wear them on the first day of school next week!
And lastly, the most adorable pair of walkers you've ever seen! My little sweetie is standing confidently, and I'm sure her first steps are just around the corner. I'm so glad she'll have these to toddle in!
These are the Stevie II - First Walker shoes and they come in this gray jersey, blue denim, or red canvas. Personally, I love how these are fairly unisex and with match nearly everything in her wardrobe right now.
The first thing I noticed about these walkers is just how lightweight they are, which is an important feature for babies getting used to shoes for the first time. I also appreciate the extra wide opening which make them easy to put on wiggling feet. They are very easy to get on and off, but the strong hook-and-loop strap makes it difficult for the baby to pull them off herself -- very important!
The outsole is flexible while still gripping and offers the perfect amount of durability for a baby who is not yet climbing on the playground but still getting herself into plenty of mischief.
We are all so in love with our new Back-to-School shoes! We love the See Kai Run styles, the durability, and how they make everyone feel important as they go back to school next week!
