J. always liked shoes. I think he still does but not the same extent as he did one or two years ago. I mean, yeah, he does wear mom’s and dad’s shoes around the house, but he is just being a goose. Back in the days he would wear shoes all day long. Now, as soon as we get home they are off his feet!
Since boys grow extremely fast I like to keep an eye out for shoes, specially sneakers because it is a well known fact that they make you run faster! Right?!
This is how I learned about Tsukihoshi, a brand established in Japan back in 1873! With years of experience to back them up, Tsukihoshi is by far the best pair of shoes my boys have ever owned.
Tsukihoshi Shoes sent J. a pair to review. I must say that I chose the sneakers. If I would have let him do so, well, it would have taken him weeks! It might have been his love of shoes or his love of mommy’s computer, it would have taken a while.
So, I chose the Child o1 sneakers in navy and red (RV $56). It simply screams boy all over!
The Child 01 sneakers are made with synthetic leather and a nylon mesh. Their sizes run from children’s 7 to 13.
- Balanced landing to keep arches healthy.
- Cup-insole with Green-Tea Polyphenol to eliminate odor.
- Great arch support that mold’s to your child’s feet.
- So light and flexible they feel like you are not wearing them!
- Machine washable! We all know this is a must with little kids that love to play in the dirt and jump into puddles (specially mud ones).
Even though this model of Tsukihoshi shoes are machine washable, flexible, and stink-free, my favorite feature is theirVelcro Fastener. It makes it easy for little kids to put their own shoes by themselves. The velcro strap is wide enough that it covers most of the top part of the shoe. The tongue is only sewn to one side of the shoe so that you, or your child, can put this shoe without fighting (we’ve all been there, trying to push a shoe onto a limb foot).
The straps on the back also help great for taking the shoes off. Or to tote them around the house, as it has been known to happen at my house!
J. has been using his new Tsukihoshi for a while now. He doesn’t complain at all (he had a pair of sneakers which made him very uncomfortable).
The shoes are so light he does run faster!! I have been trying to get a video of him running in his new Tsukihoshi shoes but he just doesn’t want to cooperate! If I have the video camera he doesn’t run; if I don’t have the video camera he runs like a lunatic! I will get him sooner or later.
