Make Each Step an Adventure
We love shoes around our house. I have a penchant for fabulous shoes, and even hubby gets into finding really fabulous shoes. So it comes as no surprise that our 2 kiddos are shoe hounds themselves. You can imagine the thrill that a new pair of shoes illicits around here. That's just what happened when we received these chic Sofias from the recently launched Eleven Collection, sister company to See Kai Run. We have long been fans of See Kai Run shoes, so it was quite exciting to find another line of functional children's shoes that pairs a modern vintage sensibility with the same reliable craftsmanship. Although the shoes were for my daugher, my son got so excited he had to try them on, too (over footie pajamas - a hoot!). We all were taken with the chic styling of these. I made my daughter promise me that before she wore them to school (inevitable) she would at least wear them to a few holiday events. I found a lovely gold knit dress that are going to be a knockout with Ivy's new Sofias. I may let her wear that to see Disney on Ice this weekend.
Eleven Collection is a family-run company located in the Northwest and committed to creating wonderful shoes for little travelers. And create wonderful shoes, they do! I just love these great James suede boots. Their understated cool is evident, but what lies hidden is their artisan craftsmanship, their flexible soles and their comfort. Eleven Collection is created for children ages 3 - 8 with growing feet. With vintage-inspired styles that have a modern appeal, these are shoes that are going to be handed down. Priced from $48 - $60.
You can win a pair of Eleven Collection shoes for your child. Simply take a peek at the Fall '08 Collection and leave us a comment telling us which style (and size) you'd choose. Please include your email address so we can contact you if you win. Deadline is Midnight, EST December 17, 2008.
