When it comes to my girls, it seems that they have inherited my love of warm-weather footwear, as they continually reach for their own sandals as often as possible. Which, unfortunately for them, isn't nearly as much as they would like, as both of their schools prefer that children wear shoes that are closed in the front to protect their toes (not to mention that we live in the Midwest).
So, when I was introduced to Clawz Shoes, I immediately knew that these unique, stylish sandals would be the best of all worlds. Slip-on shoes that are safe and comfortable in fluorescent colors shaped like animal claws? Sure sounds like every kid's dream to me!
Founded with the goal of creating new, fun, and innovative footwear designs, Clawz Shoes LLC has debuted Clawz Shoes as part shoe, part plaything. Why just wear a plain pair of sandals when you can opt for these unique, wild, eye-catching kicks instead?
And the wild and crazy fun of Clawz isn't only for kids, these slip-on shoes come in colors and sizes for toddlers, kids, teens and adults so that the entire family can stand out in a crowd. Both young and old can show the animal inside them!
Knowing that these innovative, wild shoes would be perfect for my spunky, energetic 5-year-old, I couldn't wait to see Little Sister B's reaction when a pair of pink Classic Clawz arrived at our house.
After using Clawz' convenient sizing guide (the whole process consisted of having Little Sister B stand on a piece of paper and marking the length of her feet. Then, simply measure and compare to the chart) we waited a few days and were extremely excited when we were able to see these shoes in person.
Molded from comfortable, durable, odor-resistant material, we immediately noticed that Clawz are extremely lightweight and can be slipped on in a matter of seconds.
Combine that with the vivid, bright pink color, the soft, yet durable feel, the air vents to keep feet cool, and the overall fierce (but never frightening) look, and I could see why these would be just so much fun to wear... not to mention seeing the double takes they would receive when out and about!
I also love that Clawz include a rear strap to ensure that they stay secure while being worn (and while kids are running around acting like... kids) but that the strap can also be folded forward and out of the way for an easy slip on and off look.
Just another way to customize these shoes even further!
Little Sister B, of course, had her Clawz on immediately and was thrilled to be transformed into a ferocious, savage (extremely cute) beast!
Wild yet whimsical, Clawz Shoes are available in six color options — black, blue, lime, orange, white and pink — and are sure to be a hit, whether worn at school, at the park, at a sporting event, out shopping and much more.
While Little Sister B hasn't had the chance to wear these outside too much yet (dang it, Spring!), she has been wearing them inside the house day after day and we can easily see how these shoes provide a cushioned, comfortable fit. The ergonomic design even molds to the shape of your foot as you wear them so that they continue to feel even better and better!
Playing with toys, playing with dolls, reading books, playing games... it's all made better with Clawz!
As an added bonus to sporting an adorable and one-of-a-kind pair of shoes, your purchase of Clawz helps support a good cause as well. A portion of the profit from every sale will help fund a donation of Clawz shoes to children struggling with health issues. What better way to encourage children than by giving them a creative, physical way to fight illness with the courage of a tiger or the strength of a bear?
Retailing for $29.99 for adults' and kids' sizes and $24 for toddlers' (and free shipping on orders over $45!), why not pick up a pair or two of Clawz at a discount?

Considering the number of times that Big Sister E has forlornly commented, I WISH I had a pair of these, too, I have plans to take advantage of this great deal very soon... and I'm keeping an eye on Clawz for when they begin selling their specially formatted paint markers to customize our Clawz experience even further!
