Review of U*neaks Sneakers for Kids9:05 AM
I don't think I've been this excited about a shoe since I begged my mom for some Nike Pumps (sadly I never got them.) Less gimmicky than most shoes, these comfy kicks are unique!
First of all, let me state that no cute shoe is worth putting little toes in an uncomfortable position. That being said, these shoes put my mind to ease instantly! U*neaks are 100% Mom-approved for comfy wear, and I love the non-slip soles. They had a roomy feel that kept my picky son from complaining (and that's a huge deal.) But what makes these shoes really cool are the clear side panels that allow you to see through the shoes to the socks inside. Thrifty Moms will find that you can match your shoes to most any outfit by simply changing the sock. (How cool!)
We tried out the Camel Rev design for boys, and my 5-year-old loved them! The U*neaks branded socks look fabulous underneath (check out the Madascar line), but they also worked well with your everyday plain socks. (Hint: Even the most trashed white socks look OK in these shoes, since the window doesn't show the bottom of the sock.)
They also have the most adorable girl designs. (The Pearlized Pink Paris Z-Strap shoes are so easy to put on!) Any girly-girl would feel like a princess in them.
U*neaks come in sizes ranging from 8 to 3.5 and are surprisingly affordable starting at $34.99. (Which when you consider that these shoes can replace almost every color of shoe in your kid's closet -- it's a fabulous deal!) Get your pair at the U*neaks website or these select retailers.
