Chooze Shoes: Mismatched and Totally Irresistible
Kids are typically pretty independent. Both of my girls were dressing themselves well before the age of two. And some of the outfits they came up with were totally fantastic.
Neither of them ever had trouble with matching up their shoes, but I’m willing to bet they would have been more than happy to rock a pair of Chooze Shoes. The purposely mismatched kicks for kids.
Aren’t they adorable??
Admittedly, as is sadly the case in many clothing and accessory lines, the girls shoes are definitely cuter than the boy shoes. But if you have a boy, you should still check out the selection. It’s cute … just not as cute as the girl’s shoes.
And they also have a women’s line, which is not something I’d wear. I think the shoes are cute, again, but I’m not sure they translate well into an adult shoe. Unless, of course, you’re one of those fabulously eclectic moms that can pull off any outfit … then you could totally rock these.
Another thing I love about Chooze? Their profits help fund anti-poverty programs that provide training, support, education, and loans to women so they can start their own businesses and help sustain their families. The loans are paid back within a year and the process starts again.
Why a loan instead of a grant? Because Chooze believes in a “hand-up” not a “hand-out.”
In addition, shoes are shipped in “art boxes” rather than shoe boxes. These boxes can be colored and reused for storage, rather than simply recycled (not that recycling is a bad option…). And, Chooze shoes are made strictly of vegan materials.
Sneakers and shoes start around $45 and sandals are closer to $25. Not bad for quality kid shoes.
