Is there anything more precious then the sound of a babies foot steps? Well, Yes there is, its the sound of a sweet little 'squeak' every time he takes a step. Like the Adorable Pickle Squeaker Shoes by KatieBugShoes.com.
My grandson Russell received a pair of Pickle Squeaker shoes, in the "Woof" design, from KatieBugShoes.com and I Love them! They make me smile every time I hear Russell walking in these adorable shoes because the tiny "squeak" with every step is just so cute!
Russell loves them too. I actually think the squeaky sound makes him walk even more! You can tell by the look on his face when he takes a step, that he knows he is controlling the sound. When Russell is wearing his "Woof" shoes we can tell exactly where he is, no matter where he roams. If we ever got tired of the squeak (which I don't think we will), the squeaker can be easily removed from the side of the shoe soles.
KatieBugShoes.com is owned by Laura Wallis. She is the mother of 3 (4 if you include her husband, she says), Jack (7), Kate (5), and Maryn (2). She said she had a 'light bulb moment' when several years ago her kids were wearing some neat boutique style squeaky shoes and everyone kept asking her where she got them. That's when she decided to launch KatieBugShoes.com and carry her own brand of shoes called "Pickles", as well as other brands of shoes that she loves.
Laura says the goal of KatieBugShoes.com is to provide Stylish, Durable, Comfortable Shoes for Toddlers. I believe she has done a great job of meeting that goal because my grandsons Pickle Squeaker Shoes look very stylish with their earthy-looking green leather and the cute black & white "Woof" dog face on top. Durable...Oh yes, after wearing them a few weeks now, they still look like brand new, I think he will outgrow then long before he wears them out. As for Comfort, the Supple-soft leather and flexible soles require no "break-in" period and I believe Russell thinks they are very comfortable because he doesn't fuss when he is wearing them and when you take them off at nap-time, he insists on sleeping with them!
KatieBugShoes.com doesn't have a lot a choices for boys (yet!), but they have lots of choices for little girls. Just look at these cuties! Their sizes range from 4 to 8, so they are great for early walkers and toddlers.
Laura, owner of KatieBugShoes.com & Pickle Squeaker Shoes has generously offered to give one of our lucky readers a Free Pair of Pickle Shoes of your choice!
