We were given a pair of Ikiki Chairman Meow shoes to facilitate our review. All opinions are our own.
Have you seen these shoes? They are seriously the cutest things on the planet! Meet the Ikiki Chairman Meow Squeaky Shoes – a soft, breathable, adorably cute shoe from a shoe company with a mission to help kids walk better. These little guys have been on heavy rotation when it comes time to put shoes on – and what was once a tiresome chore is now a fun task. I’ve never seen my kid put shoes on so fast!
The Ikiki Shoes came in a cute little cardboard box, with the shoes inside their own shoe bag (a nice touch if you ask me). I love the attention to detail on the shoes! The faces are so cute, and I love the bright colors – though it’s been difficult with my “everything must match” child.
The bottoms of the shoes are different to help with learning which shoe goes on which foot.
But I will have to say that my most favorite part of the Ikiki Chairman Meow is this little switch right here. A patent pending genius of a revolution that allows parents and kids to TURN OFF the squeaker. Don’t get me wrong, the squeaking is adorable, and it encourages heel-toe walking, as well as helps my daughter with rhythm… but sometimes mommy just needs it to not be so attention getting.
It’s cute for a few minutes, but walking around the grocery store for 30 minutes is too much. And I think everyone else around us agrees. On the other hand, having the squeaking is really good for knowing where my daughter is – squeak-squeak-squeak – but sometimes mommy needs quiet time too.
I love the velcro fastener and the ankle support that the high top gives. It’s non constricting so it won’t cause discomfort, but still supportive. This mom definitely approves. And Ikiki has so many other products, as well as soft soled versions for crawlers! Our next pair will definitely be the Narwhals!
I love my kitty shoes because they squeak and they have a kitty on the front of them. I like the bottom of them because there is blueish greenish on one and orange on the bottom of the other one. I like it because it squeaks but you can turn it off too, because sometimes I need to be more quiet and my daddy doesn’t like it.
Special Thanks to Ikiki for sending us these shoes for review!
