Chooze Shoes for Kids

When the temperatures start warming up in the spring, our kids literally start begging to wear their new warm weather clothes, including new their shoes. One thing that is important to us, like all moms, is buying shoes that are both fun and functional. We want shoes that we know our kids want to wear, but also ones that are going to hold up to the test of time and keep their little feet moving and grooving. CHOOZE shoes are just that…fun and functional!

We love so many things about the CHOOZE brand. First of all, they are certainly fun! These shoes have so much personality. Each pair matches, but both shoes are not quite the same. Some of the differences are drastic and others are more subtle, but because each pair is intentionally different, they boost creativity and uniqueness in all kids that wear them!

CHOOZE Shoes for kids

As for the functional side of things, CHOOZE makes their shoes with vegan materials and they all have padded insoles and flexible designs to insure healthy foot development. We all know that for little feet that are still growing, that is extremely important. Their high-quality outsoles are made to stand the test of time… and they are sure to stand up to rough-and-tumble play. Bottom line, these shoes are made with kids in mind.

As if we didn’t have enough reasons to love these shoes, learning that they invest annual profits in anti-poverty programs was the icing on the cake. They offer support, training and loans to help women in need to start their own businesses and raise themselves out of poverty. Every time our kids wear CHOOZE shoes, we will be reminded that we are helping other kids in need.

   Spring shoes for kids: CHOOZE Shoes

There are numerous designs and styles to pick, from sandals to sneaker and even slippers. Since we have spring and summer on the brain, these Chill in Hug Flip-Flops ($25) are a perfect option. They will be easy to slip on as we head the pool, or just for an afternoon playing in the sun. They are sturdy, well-made, and will keep girls feeling cute and cool on warm days.

Cute flip-flops for girls

My son was so excited to wear the unisex Move Sneakers ($49) in the Chomp pattern. They are comfortable and perfect for playground play. We love the fit and the fact that they were easy to slip on without worrying about them slipping off, and (and this is a big one!) they have held up against the rough and tumble play of a little boy.

Some of our other favorite styles were the Jump Mary Janes ($49) for little girls, the Dream Ballet Flats ($49) for bigger girls, and the Scout Loafers ($49) for boys of all ages.

Be sure to follow CHOOZE Shoes on Facebook and Instagram!

We want to know…which pair will you CHOOZE?

Meet Addi, Liv and Emma

Kid Street Style

These cute girls, Addie (age 5), Liv (age 4) and Emma (age 2), are some of the most stylish sisters we’ve ever seen. Their mom, Candice Appel (@CandiceAppel), features their looks and everyday life with these cuties (and their big brother!) on her popular Instagram account and we eat up every single post.

What mom says

Kid Street Style Girls

“I’m kind of OCD about when it comes to dressing the girls,” Candice shares. “They have to coordinate.” While we know their mom likely spends a lot of time pulling together the girls’ outfits, they don’t have that matchy-matchy look that moms with style dread. The girls looks are fun, colorful at times and filled with each girl’s unique style.

We asked Candice what the girls would wear, if they could have the run of their closets and she reported back: “Addi loves dresses. She tries to wear her favorite Taylor Joelle Designs dress to school twice a week. Liv is all about comfort, preferring a comfy, soft tee that’s not too tight, a skirt that twirls and flip-flops. And, Emma is all about her Hunter boots right now.”

Where to shop

To get a look inspired by the Appel girls, try shopping at some of their favorite stores and with some of their favorite brands:

Our favorite picks from etnies Kids

etnies Kids

Just like us, you’ve probably heard about etnies Kids, but maybe you had no idea that they carry some of the coolest, most functional shoes for kids right now… and, for price points that won’t make you faint. Here are some of our favorites from their new fall collection…

etnies Kids High Rise

The etnies Kids High Rise ($55) are the classic etnies that we know and love. Available in sizes for toddlers and bigger kids, these are the all-time, super cool, will last through even the most rough-and-tumble kiddos. We love them for their sturdy feel — these are hardly a high-top that your little guy will have falling apart after the first wear. Plus, for fall, the High Rise is perfect for school days, as they are lined with cozy fleece inside to keep his toes warm on the playground. His favorite part about the etnies Kids High Rise? They look like the shoes the pros wear… and, they are, just on a smaller scale!

etnies Kids Scout

An instant favorite at our house was the etnies Kids Scout ($40). These lightweight tennis shoes came as a pleasant surprise to me — I didn’t realize that etnies Kids made shoes like these and as soon as my girls put them on, I knew I’d have a hard time getting them to wear anything else! Not only are they super light and flexible — perfect for both school and weekend adventures — but they come in the coolest, most fashionable patterns.

etnies Kids Scout Pink

My girls also loved the etnies Kids Scout for school. They both have tennis shoes that they wear on PE days, but compared to their new Scouts, their old shoes feel like bricks! I can tell they love them because they can go from the classroom to PE to the playground without skipping a beat, even making the transition with my 4th grader to Girls on the Run after school. The Scout is made to be as breathable and flexible as possible, with etnies’ signature STI Evolution Foam in the footbed that makes kids feel like they’re walking on marshmallows!

How you can #fall4etnies
