Throughout the course of writing this blog or just browsing the internet, I've seen a lot of cool items, especially for kids. Toys, gear, shoes, apparel... it would be dizzying if I even tried to make a list of my favorites. They would have to be well-designed, innovative, high quality and, most importantly, something that my girls really adored.
However, of all of the children's products out there, I know for sure that I have never come across anything quite as unique as Weboo Shoes. Not even close. I mean, can't you just feel the love coming through from these pictures of Big Sister E and her good friends, Oliver the Puppy?
Little Sister B has a little too much love for Oliver, she can't seem to keep herself from trying to chew on his cute pink tongue
The most creative shoe and sandal line I know of, Weboo takes traditional children's shoes to the next level with their 3-dimensional styles and colors. Where else can your child find footwear that looks like ponies or dinosaurs or bright sandals that have spikes and eyes? These are definitely one-of-a-kind.
Upon first glance, the immediate noticeable difference with Weboo shoes is, of course, their look. Every little detail is taken care of and each of their exclusive characters has a unique, hand-painted finish to ensure they are just right. For kids, these are not only a pair of shoes, but a toy and a pair of friends that just happen to come along right on their feet.
However, more than just their head-turning appearance (and they really do catch the eye of pretty much everyone), Weboo footwear is specially engineered for healthy foot development - what they call their WeFit System.
By combining the benefits of soft, flexible shoes that imitate being barefoot with the protection and support traditional footwear provides for growing feet, Weboo Shoes just about do it all. The outside is molded from their patented ultra-durable ExoTuff, an advanced gel composite that is flexible and bendable yet strong and secure.
The insides offer air-cooled ventilation, a secure fit and superior comfort with their sewn-in sock liner that slightly resembles a water shoe. Not only does it keep a child's foot cool and dry, but the adjustable tie means that they will provide a custom fit-like-a-glove feeling every time.
In short, Weboo has created shoes that children will love to run, jump, skip and dance in (and play with, as well. My girls think these are a great toy!) and parents will feel good about putting on developing feet. As an added bonus, each pair comes with a secret code that, when entered on the Weboo website, allows kids to adopt their character and play online games (there are printable coloring sheets available as well). Just another way to make an original company and footwear line even more fun!
Be prepared to field the large number of questions and comments that are guaranteed to come along with footwear this cool and distinct, but know that your child will have a blast wearing them. No matter if they are into dinosaurs, sharks, puppies, ponies or a unique googly-eyed friend, the only difficult part about having a pair of Weboo Shoes might just be convincing them to take them off once in a while.
Starting at $35 for sandals and $45 for shoes, Weboo footwear is available online or at retailers throughout North America. But, thanks to Weboo's generosity, one person will get to bring home comfort, style and pure footwear entertainment, because...
One lucky person will win their choice* of size and style Weboo Shoes!
