Polliwalks Review and Giveaway!!!

We are having such beautiful October weather here in Seattle right now! For the next week, the forecast says 60's and sunny. . . perfect!!! Especially when the weather is nice, it can get tiresome to put Kirsten's socks and shoes on and off as many times a day as she wants to go outside. I wanted something that would be quick and easy to get on and off, but more protective of her feet than flip-flops. Polliwalks sent me these awesome shoes, and they are perfect!

Elmo shoes. . . what toddler could want more out of life than to run around outside wearing Sesame Street shoes???

*Polliwalks is committed to creating shoes that are fun, innovative, and more like toys for feet! They design their shoes from a kid's perspective, and they really are so playful and fun. Especially if you have a child who doesn't like to put their shoes on, these would be perfect!

Some of my favorite features about Polliwalks shoes are:

*They're made of closed cell foam. It's really soft and flexible, and super easy to clean! You don't have to worry about their shoes getting dirty, because these can just be hosed off or washed in the sink after playtime is over.

*The soles of the shoes are so creative and fun. . . They have a slip-resistant "footprinter" bottom that leaves footprints in the sand or mud of whatever animal the shoe represents!
Kirsten's Elmo shoes leave Elmo footprints, and this one is an example from their frog shoes:

*They fit really well! The slip-on back strap hugs the foot to make sure the shoe stays on, while remaining comfortable at the same time. They're also really easy for kids to take on and off themselves!

*These shoes are environmentally friendly. All their excess materials from molding the plastic are recycled, and all tags and hooks they use are made from recycled materials.


Polliwalks has a goal to make kids smile when they look at their shoes. And you know what? They really do! Kirsten loves to look down at her feet and laugh at them when she sees Elmo. She thinks the eyes that look up at her are hilarious!

Polliwalks also makes Sesame Street shoes in the Cookie Monster and Oscar the Grouch styles. I want to get her the Cookie Monster shoes when she grows out of the Elmo ones!

These shoes come in tons of other animal shapes and styles as well, in a huge variety of sizes and colors for all ages and genders! They have some really creative features, like the Fish Lips shoes that change color in the sun. These Firefly shoes have tails that light up!

These might be a little harder to clean, but I think these fluffy kitty shoes are totally cute. They look so comfy!
