I love shoes! And because of that love I try to get my kids lots of them too! Well, they need more than the basic pair of tennis shoes, right? Because not everything goes with tennis shoes!
Now that I have a little boy I’m finding it harder and harder to find those cute shoes since it seems that most everything is geared towards girls. Whether it’s clothes or shoes what they have to offer for boys are simple & basic. But when I saw these shoes I was pretty impressed! Boumy has done a great job creating a durable leather shoe for kids.
The Boumy brand was created by Anouk Henderson in 1998, a mother of 2 boys, who had trouble finding stylish, high quality shoes that would stay on her son’s feet.
The shoes, which come in a wide variety of colors and styles, are made of 100% soft leather and have an elastic ankle that makes it easy to slip on and off. The shoes are flexible with a rough leather sole for gripping floors and allow they your child’s feet to move freely. I love the way they look and how easy they were to get on, the only trouble that I had was that the elastic seemed a bit tight and left a mark on my sons foot. He didn’t seem to mind them and ran around in them easily!
While looking through the site I had a hard time deciding which pair I wanted… there were so many that I wanted! I finally settled on the Sportstripe Navy because it looked like the pair that would go with most of his outfits. As soon as we got them I immediately slipped them on my son’s feet and he didn’t squirm or push them away as he’s done with other shoes. If they’re not on his feet he likes to play with them & wear them on his hand while he waves to me!
