eleven shoes {Review and Giveaway} **Closed**

THIS POST MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. I MAY EARN FROM QUALIFYING PURCHASES.

imageEleven Shoes is the sister company to SeeKaiRun (which we love).  They make similar shoes for bigger kids (ages 3 to 8).  The are made of soft leather uppers with a flexible, yet durable sole.

The also feature a cushioned insole and easy to use Velcro or zipper closures on all of their shoes.  The colors are vibrant and fun, too!

imageSerious Tested: We chose the Chloe in berry (both Mr. Serious and I independently chose the same shoes, too).  The shoes are stylish and fun.  They go with almost all of #1’s outfits, too.  I like how brightly colored they are, yet not too flashy.  The perfect level of cute.
 
As soon as they arrived, I opened up the box and showed them to #1.  She is a shoe girl.  She loves all shoes.  But, she really loves these.  The leather is really soft, and she never complains about them (which she sometimes does with her other shoes).

DSC_5770They are very true to size.  We ordered a 10 and they are only a little bit big in the length.   The width of the shoes is wider than what we would normally get, but the Velcro closure goes almost the entire length of the strap allowing #1 to pull the strap further to tighten them up.  In the picture on the left, you can see where there is a little space between her foot and the edges of the shoes.

The soles are very strong yet flexible which allows her to move around in a non-restrictive way.  She was even practicing her jumping with them on.

I was worried about the fronts/toes getting scuffed up as that is usually the place #1 wears down her shoes.  So far, I haven’t noticed a scratch on them.

Most importantly, #1 continues to exude confidence and loves the shoes.  Every time I tell her or remind her to put her shoes on, these are now the first pair she goes to.  (Um, yeah…..who taught her this model pose?)

In fact, #2 even grabs them up every chance she gets and puts them on and wobbles around in them (it’s a bummer that See Kai Run doesn’t carry the same style in their shoes, too, so we could get them matching).

Improvements: It would be nice if they offered varied widths of shoes as I know children’s feet come in both all sizes and shapes.  I’d also like to see some matching pairs between the sister companies (because our girls love to be “matchy-matchy.”

  30. Whoa… super cute shoes!!

    I LOVE the Cate Pink ones- I would get them for my niece Nora- She is so picky about her shoes and she does not go out of the house without matching her shoes to her outfit (she's a serious DIVA in training)!!

    Would love to win!

  31. i like the nadia for my daughter emma

  32. The Chloe pink for my daughter Melody.

    Here's the thing. My twins have always worn the same size shoes within a couple of weeks of each other. Now, though, Jess is in a size 8 and Melody in a 7.5, and it's been that way for nearly a month. It didn't occur to me to set aside some shoes in the larger size to be "new" for Melody, so by the time she fits in them, they'll all be hand-me-downs from sis.

    I'd love to celebrate her growth with a pair of shoes that is just Melody's, and that Jess has to ask her permission to wear.

  33. Love your blog! And I love that this company has shoes for older children that are comfy and cute! I have a hard time finding shoes for Emmalee (12.5) they cut off at 12 in the cute matchy matchy shoes(we like to match too!)
