My son has fat feet. Not cute little chubby baby toes, but giant square, wide, fat toddler-boy feet. He also hates putting on any type of clothing and will wriggle and wrestle me to the death to stay uncovered. That being said, it’s next to impossible to find shoes that are not a complete pain to put on.
These shoes from ikiki are an absolute dream. First of all, they are adorable. There are four animal characters that are offered in baby booties and toddler shoes. We opted for “Sascha Narwhalski” who is, you guess it, a narwhal-complete with a little horn that lives under the velcro strap. They are soft, super lightweight and have a squeaker built into the heel. Before you say, “Woah, I don’t want to hear my kid constantly squeaking all over the place”, consider this: it’s really easy to locate your wandering toddler in the event they escape from you during a shopping trip. (I discovered this while trying to compare wireless printers one night, trust me, it’s a handy feature). Plus, there is a handy little switch on the side of the shoe that lets you turn the squeaking off.
