Looking for a unique, personalized baby item to give or to get? Consider taking a look at these shoes from Kids N’ Caboodle. When I first opened the box what really stood out was, other than my son’s name embroidered across the top of the foot, how ultra-soft the leather was. I’ve seen lots of shoes with this basic style for babies and toddlers (Robeez, Bobux). But the leather on these is more supple and has a higher quality feel. However, they are significantly more expensive than those better-known brands ($35.99 includes personalization, shipping and handling). They offer a large assortment of customizable colors and styles. Depending on the shoe style, different fonts are available as well.
I received a sample from their “Soft Soul” line. This style features the leather in a dark blue/light blue combo with dark blue letters. In the two tone style they have quite a large selection, 19 shoe colors and 16 text/ankle colors. I received their smallest size, which was still way too big for my newborn. Good thing he’s not in need of shoes just yet! By the time he gets to the age where he likes to pull off his socks, the gathered elasticized ankle should keep them in place. Other shoe options include solid color leather, suede and shearling finish at the ankle (to keep those baby ankles warm in the winter). They have additional options under their “Bouges” line for boys and girls. For boys, it includes various sports themes. The baseball and hockey shoes look well-balanced without personalization (the hockey ones are especially cute!). The football and soccer styles could go with or without it. Too bad I didn’t know about Kids N’ Caboodle when I had my girl. Their Organza Bow Bouges shoes are adorable! This line of shoes runs $29.99 and includes personalization, shipping and handling. Again, a bit pricey, but custom items tend to be that way. If having your choice of colors and the ability to make the shoes unique is important, then these are for you. Another bonus, you’ll never get your kid’s shoes mixed up at another play date again!
