CHOOZE Shoes is not your average shoe store for kids. I don’t think I’ve seen anything quite like their shoes before. It’s a very interesting concept. At CHOOZE Shoes, they celebrate each child’s individuality with shoes that don’t perfectly match! They believe that every child has the potential to be extraordinary. In all their shoes, the shoes are different and it’s meant to be that way. The left shoe will never be an exact replica of the right.
They are also a company with a heart. CHOOZE Shoes is a Good Returns company and invests 100% of its profits in anti-poverty programs which offer education, loans, support and training to women to help get them back on their feet again. Every purchase you make helps!
CHOOZE Shoes was founded by a mom of three kids who understands the importance of nurturing each child’s creativity and uniqueness. She also knows how to make a darn cute looking shoe that is also practical!
Bridget received a pair of CHOOZE Youth Spin Radiate shoes in size 2. You’ll notice right away that the patterns on each shoe are different, but with similarities. The colours are the same but one shoe has a flowery pattern and the other has a smaller circle pattern. It took Bridget a few minutes to notice that they weren’t the same and she asked me if they were supposed to be like that. I explained to her that was the way they were and why they were like that. She seemed to accept and understand my answer and told me the shoes were very comfy. She went to a Christmas party yesterday at her dad’s work and told me that these were the shoes she wanted to wear there!
The shoes can be worn for either indoor or outdoor. I like that the soles are durable with traction so they will be sturdy enough for outdoor play.
What I love is that the shoes are 100% machine washable so when they get dirty (which I know they will since Bridget is a whirlwind when it comes to making a mess), I can just pop them in the washing machine (in cold water, gentle cycle). Do not put them in the dryer though. They are made from 100% cotton, 100% vegan materials with an anti-microbial memory foam insole. Now I understand why they are so comfortable!
Even the box the shoes come in serves a purpose. It’s not just a regular shoe box, but one that kids can use to make art by colouring in the pattern. We are keeping ours as a box to hold crayons and art supplies.
Two Canadian readers will each win a pair of CHOOZE Shoes of your choice of style & size!
