Fashion and Footwear Perfection: See Kai Run {Review & Giveaway}

See Kai Run{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, driii!}

Having two girls, it is always interesting to me to see their similarities and their differences. Wherein Big Sister E is caring, calm, and responsible beyond her years, Little Sister B is active, curious, and my little comedian.

But they both are imaginative, love books, and so darn adoring of each other that it makes my heart hurt sometimes.

Something else that they share? A love of fashion. In particular: shoes. I can't blame them though, there are so many cute options in kids' footwear that it's hard to not be excited about the colors and styles. There has been more than one instance (many more) when I look at my girls' shoes and wish that they came in my size as well.

I mean, wouldn't I look just as cute with a pair of these?

See Kai Run reviewA name that has been a continual favorite from the first moment that we laid eyes on them, See Kai Run just knows how to do kids' shoes the right way. There is no way to visit their website and not fall in love with multiple of the fun, cutting edge styles... and then add the fact that they promote the healthy development of growing feet and are made with the utmost high quality construction and you've pretty much reached perfection in my book.

With so many adorable new styles for spring, it took days of contemplating Little Sister B's wardrobe before being able to even narrow down the collection at See Kai Run. But when the Kai in cream arrived, there was no doubt that these were the right choice.

girls' shoesThe cutest little trainers around, the Kai features flexible rubber soles, handcrafted, extra-soft leather in cream and white, and See Kai Run's signature K and faux laces in bright pink. Even the addition of the single Velcro tab across the top just makes me swoon over these shoes.

kids' shoesLittle Sister B has been known to turn down shoes if she isn't a fan of the style, but she is also a stickler when it comes to how they feel on her feet. Fortunately, See Kai Run is synonymous with comfort and everything from the durable sole to the generous width to the padded collars to the adjustable fit (courtesy of the Velcro) makes these shoes a hit for her as well as me.

Additionally, Little Sister B immediately liked the fact that she was able to put the Kai on by herself so that she was ready to go.

See Kai RunHowever, as well as their amazing collection of shoes, See Kai Run has recently added a new line with their incredibly soft and brightly-colored organic socks. Because really, even though I thought that Little Sister B's Kai shoes were adorable enough, they were even cuter paired with the Dots with Moxie socks.

organic socksAvailable in sizes 0-6 months up to 2-3 years (retailing for $10 for two pairs), these socks really do add a fun twist to See Kai Run's already-unique style. The organic cotton blend in the fabric, smooth seamless toes, and non-binding cuffs pamper little feet and Little Sister B couldn't help but smile when she saw them.

As for me, I love the unique and fashionable look of the entire line of See Kai Run shoes as well as their matching socks - they are bright, fashionable, versatile, and there is a style for every season and occasion. From dressy to casual, these aren't the generic shoes that you find in most stores and their latest spring styles will truly add just the right amount of color and flair to any outfit for boys or girls.

Sizes run from 3 to 9 (for approximately ages 6 months - 3 years. For pre- and first-walker shoes, See Kai Run has a collection aptly namedSee Kai Run shoes Smaller, and, for ages 3 - 8, you'll want to check out the awesomeness of their sister site Eleven) and most shoes are around $42. But check out their great sale page to snag a fashionable pair at a bargain price!

When it comes to children's shoes, sandals and boots, See Kai Run can be counted on for high quality, comfort, and a premium look that will make a statement. They are continually adding more amazing new styles to their line and each season I am never disappointed in the originality and personality that each shoe entails. And, thanks to their generosity, one person will soon get to see why, because...

One lucky person will win their choice of shoes from
See Kai Run or Smaller!
