In his 4 and a half years, I have tried almost EVERY brand of shoes I could find and have had a hard time finding one that he truly loves. My son's most common complaints are usually that the shoes are too tight, too stiff or that they plain hurt his feet.
I am very impressed by KidOFit shoes and am quite bummed I didn't know about them sooner. Where do I even start...these shoes have so many awesome features!
The first thing I noticed about the shoes is how light and flexible they are! As I mentioned, if the shoes are too stiff, my son would refuse to wear them. KidOFit shoes are ready to put on and start playing in right away -- no need to break them in. Which brings me to the next point -- the opening. It has a wide opening making it easy for kids to put on and take off by themselves, helping them to feel independent, confident and practice learning an important skill. We've had very stiff shoes that my son simply could not put on by himself. Others had complicated straps or tongues, that we would need to help with or we had to adjust after he put on.
KidOFit shoes were created keeping children in mind. These shoes are the closest it gets to walking barefoot. This is the best way of promoting healthy foot development for young ones.
The shoes come with an additional insert (green) that you can use if the shoes are too loose. Alternately, if the shoes are too tight, you take out the insert that is already in it (yellow) and insert the extra insert that the shoes come with (which is thinner) and offers more room inside of the shoes. The heel of the shoes also have a velcro strap that you can adjust to your little ones' heels so that the shoes fit just right.
Ok...now for the COOLEST feature. The soles of the shoes are TRANSPARENT. Yes! You read that right. They are transparent. Because of this feature, you can see exactly where your child's toes are (no more feeling and guessing, making sure they are the right fit and size)!!! Such a great idea!
KidoFit has shoes for boys and girls from baby sizes (4-9) to toddler sizes (9.5-12). They even have free shipping and returns in the United States. Check them out, you will NOT be disappointed.
