Review and Giveaway! See Kai Run shoes-CLOSED!

I have to admit, when the ultrasound technician told me 2.5 years ago that our first child was a boy, one of my first thoughts was "oh darn, no cute clothes or shoes." I feel very strongly about the importance of cute shoes- I've even been known to plan my outfits around my shoes rather than the other way around.

Thankfully, I discovered fairly quickly that cute boy shoes do exist, in the form of See Kai Run shoes.  We got our first pair as a hand-me-down from friends, and I was hooked from the first moment that I slipped the red leather shoes on my son's feet. He quickly outgrew both those shoes and the ones that I purchased to replace them.  Kids' feet grow so quickly! 

I knew I loved the look of See Kai Run shoes, but since Ethan was a (very) late walker, I hadn't had the chance to test out the quality of the shoes on a mobile kid.  I contacted See Kai Run about letting me review a pair of their shoes now that Ethan is busy running around and climbing and jumping and doing all the typical toddler boy activities.  We were sent the Coleman shoes from the See Kai Run line.  Even my husband, who could not care less about shoes, thought these were very nice looking, and he made a comment that they would "add color" to our son's wardrobe.

























As for Ethan, he is totally obsessed with his shoes. When I bring them out, he happily sits down and lets me put them on, which is a highly unusual behavior for my son. Yesterday he wore the shoes to the fair and kept putting his feet up on the tray of his stroller so that he could gaze at his feet while he rode.  These shoes are great quality too, very sturdy without being bulky. Ethan's a little accident prone and tends to fall over when he's wearing shoes, but he's not had that problem while wearing these particular shoes.  Stylish and practical- what more could you ask for in shoes!


See Kai Run has a great selection of shoes for kids from 0-3 years. For the littlest kids, the Smaller line offers some adorable choices, and the See Kai Run line has stylish shoes for kids 6 months-3 years of age.  The Eleven line has some nice looking shoes that fit kids up to 8 years of age.

You have a chance to win shoes!  (one entry per person) (open to US/Canadian mailing addresses only)
See Kai Run is generously offering one of my readers their choice of a pair of shoes from either the Smaller or See Kai Run lines.


Mandatory entry:
Visit the See Kai Run website and let me know what pair of shoes you would pick from either the Smaller or See Kai Run lines. Please make sure you include your email address in your comment (if your email is visible on your blog profile, you don't need to leave your email address).

Extra entries (please leave a separate comment for each):
1) Follow my blog and leave a comment letting me know that you're now a follower! (if you're already a follower, leave a comment letting me know that you already follow)
2) Sign up for the See Kai Run newsletter and come back and let me know that you signed up and the email address that you signed up with.
3) Become a fan of See Kai Run on Facebook.
4) 5 extra entries (please leave 5 separate comments)! Blog about this giveaway with a link back to this post and the See Kai Run homepage.

Giveaway will end at 9 PM Pacific time on Wednesday, September 30th, 2009. Winner will be chosen by random.org and will be emailed immediately after I draw a winner. Results will also be posted in a blog post.  Winner will have 48 hours to respond to my email before I choose another winner. Good luck!

Disclaimer: I was given a pair of shoes to test for my review, but was not compensated in any other way. The opinions here are my own. 

Congrats Jenn! You won!
