GIVEAWAY: ELK Kids Adorable Shoes (and Coupon Code)

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

Do you look at your kids (or grandkids or nieces or nephews or WHOEVER'S kids) and are just amazed by how much they've grown, too? Sometimes I can't get over the fact that it seems like one day I was excited to finally be pregnant and, what seems like the next day, Big Sister E is already three years old. She knows the look I must get when I'm getting all sentimental about her growing up because she'll look me right in the eye and say, "How did I get so big?" before I can even mention anything. That's my smart girl.

Then I look at Little Sister B and my mouth almost drops with each of her accomplishments. She changed from my immobile little bundle of cuteness into this... TODDLER. She's becoming a real person, one that points so I know what toys she wants to play with or what silly things to do to make her laugh so I can hear that sweet sound.

What amazes me the most is watching her walk along furniture with ease. At first all Little Sister B could do was pull up and stand there, then she began to take just a step or two. Now, she strolls along the edges of things with the confidence only a new discovery can give to a child. As well as being there with the camera, I am sure to help my little one out by giving her the best footwear for her growing feet.


All of ELK Kids' Soft Sole leather shoes are made from high quality baby safe soft leather and the color doesn't rub off onto little socks when they are worn. These adorable shoes are not only comfortable for Little Sister B's feet, the adjustable elastic keeps them on and helps prevent her from slipping while she's navigating her way around the house.

An added bonus? If they get dirty, these shoes can be tossed in the washing machine (on the gentle cycle) or are easily wiped clean with a damp cloth. Size availability varies on the soft sole shoes, but they run anywhere from 0-6 months up to 3-4 years, showing the quality and durability can withstand anything from crawling to running.

The styles of Soft Sole Baby Shoes at ELK Kids are endless. I felt as though I could browse for days through the cute animals, trendy patterns and unique designs. Whether you are shopping for a boy or a girl or getting a pair for an unknown baby-to-be, I guarantee that you'll find more than a handful of designs that you'll ooh and ahh over.

Little Sister B's Monkey yellow shoes are the perfect thing to pull on her feet, whether just to keep her socks on around the house or if we're heading out to play with friends. I chose the neutral colors so that they will go with everything and anything and besides, don't those little monkeys look suspiciously like they're up to something? Definitely fitting for my little curious go-getter.


If soft sole shoes aren't your thing, ELK Kids also has the most adorable line of Flexible Soled Toddler Shoes that run from a size 4 to a size 10. From dressy to casual, these shoes are not only stylish but comfortable as well. The leather is soft and relaxed and the soles provide a good amount of traction for older kids' quick (and not always graceful) movements.

I love how the Toddler Shoes at ELK look unique in a tasteful way. These shoes are fashionable without being so overly different that they would get left in the closet and the colors match to outfits worn year-round. The adjustable Velcro on the top of Big Sister E's Ella shoes even make it so that they can be perfectly fit to her feet for as long as she wears them (and then later on when Little Sister B grows into them, too).


If you're looking for a great price on kids' shoes right now, check out ELK Kids' clearance page for an even better deal on their adorable footwear. Little Sister B's Monkey yellow shoes are on sale for 40% off (making them only $14.99 from their original $25) as well as other of their Soft Baby shoes and cute boots.

If that isn't enough, from now until December 31, 2009 enter the coupon code b87a9ef83e and you'll receive a 15% discount off of your total purchase. Yes, this includes both regular and clearance items and even gives you free shipping on orders over $50! Time to stock up for baby gifts, birthday gifts or just preparing for when your child outgrows the current shoes they are now wearing! Also be sure to become a fan of ELK Kids on Facebook and you'll be on top of all of their new information and deals.

Thanks to the generosity of ELK Kids, one person won't have to wait until their child's toes are hitting the end of their shoes to replace them with the cutest footwear around, because...

One person will win their choice of shoes from ELK Kids!
ARV $14.99 - $45.83!
