From a young age, my daughter has been very opinionated about what she wears. She's gone through many phases in her life as a girl who is "so fashion." (Her words. At 3.) There was the "jeans are awful and ugly" phase which overlapped with the "dresses ONLY" phase, followed closely by the "wear shoes on the wrong feet every single day just because" phase. We've reached a pretty good balance now - she lets me pick outfits for her (especially on important occasions) without much protest and I let her express herself through some very questionable ensembles. Because, really, what's the harm in her wearing a teal floral shirt with a pink and orange striped skirt to school? I pick my battles and her funny choice of outfits isn't one of them.
CHOOZE Shoes was founded on this principle: empowering kids with creativity and confidence. Sharon, the designer and founder of CHOOZE, says "From a very young age our only daughter had an innate desire to express herself through unique wardrobe choices. As soon as she was old enough to walk, she would grab two different shoes and go about her day. She did it without the fear of failure or judgment, and she was so happy because of it. In time, I realized that the freedom to express ourselves is the key to unleash our potential."
Taking the concept of two different shoes and, literally, running with it, each mismatched pair of CHOOZE shoes coordinate but are not the same. The result is a 100 percent playful, happy and definitively youthful shoe that kids will be thrilled to wear.
Unlike his sister, my son doesn't usually get too excited about clothes or what he's wearing. But, the minute he laid his eyes on the Move In Navigate Sneakers, he found his new favorite pair of shoes. The slip on shoes are perfect for him with mismatched outer space theme. The shoes are practical, too, with removable antimicrobial padded insoles.
My daughter opted for the Mary Jane style Jump In in the Blink Coral color. The shoes are modern patterns of coral and teal with a sweet flower detail on the adjustable strap.
