Isabooties (Giveaway!)

I love seeing little tiny people just learning to walk.

Esther has been walking since 9 months!  I didn't even believe children could walk that early.  Lucy was close to a year old when she started to walk, and Julia was 10 or 11 months.  Esther has two big sisters to keep up with, so she didn't waste any time.  At 14 months now, I'm pulling her down off of the coffee table and anything else she decides to climb on.

I am a big believer in not putting my kids in chunky shoes.  Even at age 5 and 3 I tend to pick shoes with flexible soles for Lucy and Julia.  Esther only wore socks for quite a long time.  Now she wears shoes with very soft soles.  Here is link to more information on this topic.


Recently we had the chance to try out Isabooties soft soled shoes.  I got the pink ballet criss-crossers and Esther looks absolutely adorable in them.  Some things we like about them: they are made in the US, machine washable, and eco-friendly.  They are very durable and have held up well.


The shoes are extremely flexible, which is great.  I do think they are a bit wide, they tend to slip around on Esther's feet.  They are too big for her though, so as she grows they will work a bit better.  Maybe I should have gone a size smaller; check out their sizing chart here.  Esther likes wearing them and I'm sure we will get lots of use out of them.  Lucy and Julia think its great that Esther has her own ballerina shoes.

Isabooties has several cute styles to choose from.  In fact, pop over to their website, pick out your favorite and leave a comment letting me know.  Isabooties is giving away a pair to one of you!  I'll close this at midnight on April 9th.  If you are a follower of my blog (or become one) leave an extra comment for a second entry.  Thanks, be sure to stop by again soon!

*Giveaway Closed.  Congrats Vanessa!*
