Sophie’s Chic Boutique was started when a daughter wanted to go to Europe for Ballet. Yep, this store was created as a way for her to earn some money to go. Isn’t that great?!? (I appreciate the work ethics this Mom instilled!) From head to toe, they have some adorable items. Clips, dresses, Baby legs and shoes. And that’s just for the kids! Sophie’s Chic Boutique also carries diaper bags, cosmetic cases and more.
Kim (Mom of the now European Ballerina) sent the Twins 2 pairs of her adorable Squeaky Shoes. There are many styles for both girls and boys. And, new styles were just added!
My Twins got the Sophie Brown and Pink Flowers Squeaky Sandal, nice and trendy for the summer. And they also got the Brown w/ Pink Flowers on Side Squeaky Shoes, a Mary Jane style of shoe. These are adorable little leather shoes! I’m not sure if it’s the colors or the great designs of the flowers and stems, but the designs just makes me smile! It’s a nice quality shoe, and the stitching is pretty strong. I had to give it a tug to see if little hands could cause some damage, and everything stayed put.
The wide opening of the shoes makes putting them on easy, and the Velcro closure keeps the shoe on. And since they squeak, the girls are really trying to get them off, with no luck! The inside lining of the shoes is soft. The soles are flexible for their moving feet, and the bottom has great traction to prevent slips.
Now, if you’d like – the squeak can be taken out. But, I really have no intentions on doing that. My girls are quick, and travel in packs. Usually they explore and giggle away. But, when they discover an open door that my oldest daughter left for them – they are super-quiet to ensure I don’t get in their way. Squeaky shoes allow me to know where they are, even if I am in the other room. Plus, the fun squeak when they walk has really encouraged them to take more steps. And, in order for the shoes to squeak, they must walk heel to toe – so it also encourages proper walking.
As a nice little bonus, Kim sends out a bag of candy with every order! Shoes for babes, Candy for Mom! Thanks Kim! (Shhh…don’t tell Isabelle there was more than just that one piece)
~ 2 of my readers will each get one pair of squeaky shoes, winners’ choice!
