A note about comments

Hi Everyone,
Some people are having a hard time commenting so I thought I would go through it. Click comment under the blog post. You might have to look closely as it is not very bold. You can see the number of comments. (ex. 45 comments) A box will pop up and you can put your comment in there. Then you will have to choose an identity. If you have your email provider pops up you can click there and log in as usual. If not, choose anonymous. Please be sure to put your email address in the box so that I know where to contact you. I NEVER share any addresses under any cirucmstances, so you are safe with me. Remember to leave a different comment for each entry so that I can count them all when the random number generator picks. Thanks so much!!

See Kai Run Review and Giveaway

See Kai Run is a small but rapidly growing company that has been getting a lot of media buzz and attention lately. As a matter of fact, Hale Berry’s daughter even wears them. Now I know why!

Recently, I was lucky enough to have been given the opportunity to review a pair of these shoes. I chose the Margo, which is a new addition to the Smaller line and is available in sizes 0 -24 months. They also have their signature See Kai Run shoes which have a flexible rubber sole and range in sizes 3-9.

These shoes are fabulous! Each pair is handcrafted and the materials used are of exceptional quality. $32 is a really good price for this level of shoe. My daughter is just starting to walk and these are perfect. The leather is so soft and the shoe is handcrafted. The suede bottom is sturdy, but movable, and there are two non-slip rubber pads.

At first I was concerned that my Houdini-like daughter might easily undo the Velcro closures. She examined them and did give them a try, but the Velcro is such high quality that she couldn’t get them off. This is the first pair of shoes that have stayed on her feet. After a thorough examination she forgot that she was wearing them, attesting to the fact that the Margo is a lightweight, breathable, and comfy trainer shoe.

Everything about this product, including the packaging is high quality. My toddler has been using the silver box to carry her toys! It’s the most popular “toy” in the house today. So in a sense they both got something.

Stylish, comfortable, and a great price. Customer service was awesome and shipping was lightning fast to Canada! Free shipping until August 28th.

The Giveaway:

Now for the great news! After reviewing the shoes I contacted the company to see if they would offer a pair of shoes for a giveaway. They graciously accepted and now a lucky winner will receive a FREE pair. The winner can choose from either the Smaller or See Kai Run line. (Eleven shoes are not included in this giveaway.)
