Bugaloo Kid's Soft Soled Shoes

There is nothing more wonderful to watch than your child's first steps! The amazement on his face (and on yours!)is so fun to experience.

But as a parent, it can be oh so NOT FUN to find shoes that fit your new walker but also don't hamper his new found freedom. For new wobbly walkers, hard soled shoes are out because they lack the give and take bend on the foot that helps our newest upright citizens balance!

So, the most logical option is to get a soft soled shoe that shapes the foot without constricting balance or movement and ensuring your child quickly gains confidence in his or her walking. The problem? Such shoes are usually VERY expensive and don't wash well in the washer. Trust me, I have experienced the 40 dollar pairs you can find out there, and they are great, but that is so expensive for something that will be outgrown soon and can't be washed!(and if you wash them, they come out all faded, twisted and are never as soft again) And the cheap kinds form Target? Yea, they wear out faster than anything, and in the end you've spent 40 dollars replacing them over and over....and over.

So what's a budget conscious and foot conscious mom to do? Turn to Bugaloo Kids!! The mom behind the design, Heidi, is a genius! She has made super durable soft soled shoes that will help your child grow and walk without damaging his feet AND at an affordable cost! The shoes come in all kinds of cute and wonderful designs and at $15 you can afford to have a couple of pairs!!

Also, I washed one shoe 4 times, and in the end, I can't tell the difference between the one I washed and the one I didn't-now that is quality!

Product information (click image below to enlarge)
Bugaloo Kids shoes have:

Bugaloo Kids is MADE IN THE USA, so you can be sure the product is top quality. But that is not even the best part! Every purchase helps to fight childhood slavery. 5% of each purchase goes directly to International Justice Mission to help fight human trafficking and to help the victims of such horror, most of which, sadly,are children.

That's something those $40 dollar shoes I bought can't claim. And helping children, along with the high quality, cute designs and budget friendly cost ensure I will be buying many pairs of these shoes for my son.

Thanks for the review- so good to know how the Bugaloos compare to Target brand and Robeez (besides their obvious victory in the cuteness dept). Thanks for doing a giveaway!
