Shoe Review and Giveaway

My little Peanut has teeny, tiny, peanut-sized feet. She just moved into a size 3 shoe. Most shoes in her size are pre-walker shoes. I love the new soft-soled shoe revolution - they are so much better for a child's foot development - but she's been walking for almost 5 months now and she needs something that will give her feet a little more protection when she's playing outside.

I was recently given the opportunity to review a pair of Jack and Lily shoes. My search for the perfect shoe has officially ended. These shoes are exceptionally well made, with high quality leather uppers and a super flexible rubber sole that also gives her peanut-sized feet plenty of protection. We've tried other soft-soled varieties, but most of them are made with leather soles and with her love for the outdoors, we need shoes that can travel indoors and out without the worry of her stepping on something sharp.

The shoes arrived last Friday in an adorable little pink keepsake box. Let me just tell you, these shoes are amazing. Peanut has been running around in her new pair since they came in and I'm in love! No slipping and sliding and the easy velcro straps stay put. As a bonus, they are just so adorable.

Jack and Lily carries two great lines of baby and toddler shoes. The Original Collection is great for crawlers, cruisers and new walkers. They are made of genuine leather with a ski-resistant suede sole that allows your little one to explore their new mobility in total comfort and freedom of movement. The My Shoes collection are more structured shoes with soft rubber soles - Peanut has the Sandal style.

Buy one:
These shoes can be ordered directly from Jack and Lily or from one of their nationwide retailers. They range in price from $26-$36 . They are currently running a special with free shipping if you order two or more shoes. Check it out.

    I also just want to say we have so much in common... I'm a strong Christian, I was homeschooled K through 12th grade, I come from a big family though not as big as yours(4 girls, 2 boys), I was married in August of 2005, and had my first baby (a boy) in March of 2009, so he's 14 months right now. So interesting!

    I look forward to following your blog and getting to know you further. :)

  22. My 14 month-old would look great in Sport / navy & white (544).
