Squeaker shoes are all the rage these days, especially for little ones learning to walk.
With a "squeak, squeak" here and a "squeak, squeak" there, beginning toddlers are encouraged to walk.
My 11-month-old daughter has just started to take her first independent steps and many times I've eyed pairs of squeaky shoes, wondering if I should give them a try.
And that's when Katie Bug Shoes swooped in and saved me from my indecision with a free pair to try and review.
My little princess LOVES the squeaky sounds! So much so that even when she's not trying to step, she's stomping her foot!
I only have one complaint when it comes to this adorable little footwear: taking them off has resulted in temper tantrums! (Other pairs of shoes she does her best to kick off, so this reaction alone speaks VOLUMES!)
My baby girl may love the squeak, but I like the way that simple little sound helps to keep track of my exploring tot. (Maybe that makes me a bit cynical but...)
Katie Bug Shoes is the exclusive carrier of Pickle, squeaky shoes designed for style, durability, and comfort.
I opted to try Orange Blossom because it so perfectly matches many of the Gymboree® lines.* There's nothing like a great, well-fitting shoe to match your outfit!
And now I'm trying to decide which pair I want to buy. I'm pretty sure we'll own each style before our Princess outgrows the love of squeakers!
Katie Bug Shoes offers (obviously) comfortable, stylish, quality shoes at affordable prices for both girls and boys. FREE SHIPPING too! (U.S. only)
