SkidDERS Review and Giveaway

CLOSED
Winners- #30, 1


We have hardwood floors in our home and a very active three year old. Sometimes the floors and our spirited girl don't always mix. Anyone who has wood floors knows that running and bouncing three year olds are bound to have slips and falls, especially when wearing slippery socks. Unfortunately living in Alaska it can get a little chilly so prancing around barefoot is not always ideal. Little ones gotta keep their tootsies warm! So when I learned about Skidders while browsing the internet I knew I had to find out what these cute and so called SkidProof shoes were all about.

Skidders Footwear was founded in 2008 with a unique collection of toddler shoes that can be worn both indoors and outdoors. The idea behind the Skidders Shoe was that kids need shoes to be light weight, fun and offer enhanced traction and protection. Skidders kids can walk, run and play safe indoors and outdoors.

We were sent a pair of adorable ballerina print Skidders to review. As soon as Penelope saw these she loved them, she is a ballerina in training after all. These were so much better then I expected! I expected a kind of slipper sock with those little rubber dots on the sole. The soles on these shoes are actually completely rubber. They have small "bumpy" grippers on the bottom making them pretty much slip proof and Penelope instantly loved walking around in them. They are also very easy for little hands to slip on. The actual shoe part is like a thick stretchy sock so they also appear to be very comfortable. I want a pair! These are perfect for wearing around the house but they are also made to be worn outdoors. If you live in a warmer, dryer climate then we do I can see how this would be practical unfortunately I think these will solely be an indoor shoe for us. Another nice thing about Skidders is they are washable. You can just toss them in your washer and get them all nice and clean again. Skidders Shoes come in several adorable styles for both boys and girls. They range in sizes from 12 months to 4 years. In addition to shoes Skidders also makes Socks and Gripper Knee Pads. We absolutely love our Skidders!

The people at Skidders were also generous enough to send along a couple extra pairs of Skidders Shoes for me to pass along to two of our readers.
I have a boys Sports print in a shoe size 4 (12 months) and

a girls Peace print in a shoe size 8 (24 months) for two of you.

Also in your comment let me know which pair of Skidders Shoes from the two I mentioned above you would pick if you won.
