Sometimes I covet Roo's clothes. Seriously, at four and a half, she already outdresses me. Her new school shoes are my current favorites. I sorely wish they were available in my size. The style is called Elaine, from See Kai Run's new collection.
Elaine is a black leather mary jane with a graceful asymmetrical pattern of tiny stars that run across both shoes. They remind me of Camper's Twin series, only scaled down for toddler sizes 9 and below. It makes me slightly wistful that this will be Roo's last pair of See Kai Run shoes since she is finally growing and will probably be a 10 by springtime. (Thank goodness for Eleven Collection's larger sizes!)
These shoes look great with anything Roo's wearing, no matter how brightly colored or mismatched.
See Kai Run now offers online ordering, and carries Eleven Collection for older kids and Smaller, a soft-soled line for newborn-18 month olds. I wish we'd gotten the chance to try Smaller but I think Jasper's huge, stomping feet are ready for See Kai Run already. He's not quite walking but he's already about a size 6. I am eyeing the Kian for him:
They look like they have sturdy ankle support for ungainly walkers, plus style up the wazzoo! My mom's maiden name was Kiyan, so obviously it's in the stars for Jasper to wear these shoes…
