Finding shoes that my 5 year old and I agree on can be a challenge. She tends towards glitter and characters and soles that light up when she walks, and I prefer something that she isn’t going to destroy in 2 weeks – seriously, is she crawling through gravel all day at school? – and a price point that isn’t going to bankrupt me. Non-marking soles that aren’t slippery are mandatory, and they have to be easy enough for her to get on and off a number of times a day by herself. That’s quite the list of ‘must have’s’, isn’t it? I had noticed CHOOZE Shoes when we were back to school shopping a few weeks ago, so I was very pleased to receive a pair of their Mary Jane style, Jump in Charm Purple, for Ashlyn to try out.
I know that shoes are a hit when the dancing starts! Charmingly mismatched on purpose, CHOOZE Shoes have the following features:
- Non-marking rubber outsoles
- 100% cotton canvas lining
- Breathable padded eva insoles
- 100% vegan materials
- Adjustable straps
- 100% cotton canvas uppers
They are also machine washable, which is great! A fun little detail that I didn’t notice until I was taking pictures is that inside of each shoe, there is a small picture of a foot to remind your child which foot the shoe belongs on.
CHOOZE Shoes is a Good Returns company, which means that they invest annual profits in anti-poverty programs. The shoes come in ‘art boxes’ which are perfect to colour and repurpose as a new home for toys, or whatever your little artist dreams up. With everything from shoes to boots to slippers for babies, boys girls and women, it may be hard to CHOOZE just one pair!
One lucky CANADIAN reader will win one pair of CHOOZE shoes of their choice (subject to availability)!
