If there's one person in our house who isn't afraid to let her individuality and ideas stand out, it's our 7-year old daughter Eva. Even though I'm an adult, there are times where I am envious of her ability to be confident in who she is, and the fearlessness she possesses. Don't get me wrong, she's still seven; and like most 7-year old girls she has her moments of little girl meltdowns. But more often than not, she's perfectly willing to step in for a kid who's being bullied on the playground at school, or quietly give a hug to someone in need. She's sweet and she's also sassy and I love that Chooze Shoes, who sent me one pair of shoes at no cost to facilitate this review, celebrates all of these qualities and let's her wear her heart on her feet!
Every good pair of shoes starts out in a shoe box and Chooze Shoes is no exception. The difference with Chooze is they put their message right out in front. To them, it's not only important that you love the look and feel of their shoes, but that you love what Chooze represents.
Can Wearing 2 Different Shoes Change The World?
It's a step in the right direction. Because when you CHOOZE to wear 2 different shoes, you are making the choice to be different, to stand out, to change your perspective, and to be open to new ideas. We believe that it takes confidence and creativity to wear 2 different shoes - and these are the very qualities we all need to reach our fullest potential. - Chooze Shoes shoe box
Just in case you have't put two-and-two together yet, the brilliance and beauty of Chooze Shoes is that each pair of shoes comes with their own distinct theme yet two totally unique and different right and left shoes. Here's what you'll find with Chooze Shoes:
- Shoes for boys and girls
- Sizes 4T-3 (Youth)
- Variety of shoe styles (Sandals, Mary-Janes, Slip-Ons, Sneakers, Loafers, Ballet Flats, Slippers, Infant Shoes)
For her shoes, Eva chose the "Jump In Enchant" Mary-Jane shoes, which I love, because she can wear them with a dress or a skirt, or she can dress up a pair of jeans or even shorts and Capri pants! I love the bright colors and impossibly fun patterns in this pair of shoes! I was confident that no matter what style or pattern she chose, we'd both be happy, but I was equally as thrilled to see that Chooze Shoes not only makes a quality product, they back it up with their "100% Happiness Guarantee"!
Eva was eager to show off her Chooze shoes and I was quite surprised when she came downstairs in one of her more "subdued" outfits. She quickly told me, "Mom, this outfit isn't about my clothes, I want everyone to see my shoes!" These shoes are super fun and because they are all about being unique and different, you can really pair them with any style and color clothing. Or, you could always take some style advice from Eva. Go simple, and let the shoes do the talking!
These Mary-Janes from Chooze Shoes have proved to be super comfortable. You can absolutely wear them with bare feet, or with socks. While the sides of the shoes are made of a comfy, stretchy material, the bottom of the shoe has a nice solid sole. I love that these shoes come with a little tab on the back, which is helpful for young kids when they are putting their shoes on, and the Velcro straps mean kids (and parents) don't have to fret with the laces. That's not all you will find with each pair of Chooze Shoes:
- Adjustable straps ensure a great fit
- Cotton canvas uppers
- Cotton lining
- 100% vegan materials
- Anti-microbial removable padded insoles
I had to show you a close up of these beauties! One of my favorite features about Chooze Shoes is the fact that they are super breathable! No sweaty feet for my Eva in these shoes! The material keeps Eva's feet cool and comfortable, even in the warmer weather. Should the insoles ever wear out, all I have to do is head over to Chooze Shoes to pick up a replacement.
I couldn't be more thrilled with these adorable shoes! Everywhere she goes, when she's wearing her Chooze Shoes, Eva always graciously welcomes the compliments and questions about her unique choice of foot wear. More than just the fun and the quality of this product, I love the message these shoes send and ultimately, the confidence it builds in my daughter when she wears them. She is unique. She is different. She is Eva, and there's no one else like her!
