Disclaimer: Rilleyroos sent me a pair of shoes to trial, for free, in exchange for writing this review All opinions are 100% my own.
Just because I am a boy mom doesn't mean that I have given up on getting cute stuff. While I recently found out that my definition of cute boy stuff is different than some other southern gals around here (I LOVE boy denim, had no idea that people existed that didn't love it), I am always on the hunt for items that will make my heart melt when I see them on my son. A good pair of brown summer sandals is just that!
Please ignore the outfit choice. Hubby dressed him. Also, please ignore the rash remnants as we are getting over hand, mouth foot AGAIN.
I was excited when Rileyroos contacted me to see if I would like to try a pair of their shoes (gratis in exchange for writing a review about it). I was also happy they timed it right because a month or two from now my boy would have sized himself right out of their product line. Rileyroos specializes in shoes for the little people in your life and their largest size is 18-24 months. I received the Chessie in chocolate in the 18-24 month size and it is the perfect fit for Weston at 19 months.
I have written about toddler and baby shoes before and over the past several months I have learned more about what I look for in the ideal toddler shoe. I like a shoe that is stylish (in my opinion), flexible, protective (no way to scrape your toes), and one that endures. Lets be honest, toddlers trip a LOT, so if a shoe scuffs immediately, I consider that kind of a disappointment. These shoes also seem to have a very wide toe box which I imagine must be good, nobody wants scrunched up toes. The double sided velcro also makes it easy to open the shoe up wide and slip a little foot inside. Easy on and off is key. You will not see this mama buy lace up shoes for a looooooong time.
