My youngest son has been a bit of a footwear aficionado every since he was a baby. From the time he first learned how to put on his shoes, he loved picking out his own footwear for whatever outfit he was wearing that day and he had quite a few pairs to choose from. Now, at three, he’s not quite as picky about his footwear as he once was. But he still gets excited every time he gets a new pair of shoes!
So when Chooze Canada contacted me and asked if I would be interested in reviewing the company’s innovative footwear, I requested a pair in Benjamin’s size so that he could enjoy a new pair of spring shoes. He couldn’t wait for his Chooze Shoes to arrive and when they finally did, he had them out of the box in no time.
Chooze Shoes are a unique new concept in children’s footwear. The sturdy canvas shoes are made with two different types of coordinating fabric so that each shoe is unique. It’s a way of celebrating the originality of every child and inspiring creativity and choice. But the Chooze Shoes difference doesn’t stop there! At the end of each year, Chooze Shoes invests its profits in anti-poverty programs that provide training, support and education to women to help permanently improve their quality of life.

Back in my early twenties, I worked as a waitress in my small-town restaurant. It was lots of fun and I loved the chance to visit and interact with the people in my community, but it was a job that required a lot of walking in a day. My boss understood how important good footwear was, so even though we had a dress code for clothing, we were allowed to wear running shoes or any other footwear that we found comfortable while working.
I didn’t mind working in comfy running shoes but I often wished for something a little dressier. If only I had known about Shoes for Crews back then! This innovative company specializes in footwear for the work industry. From cushioned insoles to reinforced heels, these shoes are made to keep feet comfortable all day long. And I loved the patented micro-channel tread pattern of the soles that gives the shoes their amazing grip.
I recently received a pair of shoes from Shoes for Crews to test out and I decided to get a pair that I could use when attending press events or special trips. The Allure Women’s Dress Shoes looked like they would be perfect for that and I liked the fact that they were water resistant so that they were suitable for use both indoors and out. [Read more…]
This year Benjamin started playschool and he was so excited about it. Finally he got to have all the things his brother had: a backpack, a lunch box and, of course, a special pair of school shoes. So when pediped gave us the chance to review a pair of the new fall pediped Flex runners, I was thrilled.
When Benjamin was just a baby, his very favourite pair of shoes was a cute pair of pediped Originals shoes. He had worn those shoes for as long as he possibly could and so I had high hopes that he would love the pediped Flex shoes he received just as much.
When it comes to shoe shopping, moms and kids usually have different priorities in mind. Moms want shoes that are high quality, fit well and are comfortable. Kids, on the other hand, want shoes that are cool! Fortunately, with Geox Canada, there’s no need for either faction to compromise!
Just in time for chillier days, Geox has released this year’s hip and happening Junior Fall Collection and if you haven’t heard of this premier Italian footwear line, you need to check it out! Geox uses an exclusive technology to create a special microporous membrane that is used in all its footwear. The membrane manages sweat and heat to keep water out and let moisture evaporate, ensuring that feet are warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The membrane makes Geox shoes both waterproof and breathable, which is why the shoes are the absolute best choice for an active child’s growing feet! [Read more…]
