The very first pair of shoes I received as a gift for my son was from See Kai Run. I was awed. Two-tone Kai Kai's with a square toe, velcro closure, and handstitching on butter-soft leather left me, a shoe fanatic, drooling. It would be at least a year before my son could wear such lovelies, but in the meantime, they sure would look cool in his "shoe house" (a cute wooden house-shaped shelf that boasts the kids' shoes).
A year (give or take) later and Dylan is loving his Kai Kai's. He likes to run in them, as well as walk, jump, climb and shake his booty. They're quite durable and have held up well. Now he alternates between those first buttery-soft shoes and his latest, the Henry, a navy suede oxford (no hand-stitching this time around). When we ask him to get his shoes, he goes straight for these every time!
I love the styles from See Kai Run, but not just for their looks. Although these are hip shoes with an urban sensibility, what's so fabulous about them is the craftmanship and the quality. These shoes are well-made, and made just for kids' growing feet. The flexible soles allow for all the moving busy feet like to do, yet they give kids all the support they need. The leather lets little feet breathe, and the padded collars keep them comfortable.
Aside from their new spring collection for modern boys and girls, See Kai Run has some big news. They have just launched their own online retail store, making it easy to get your feet, er, hands on a pair for your kids. Priced from $24 - $42, these are among the best shoes your child can wear, not to mention the most stylish!
