The 17th Mommy Review

The 17th Mommy Review


Today's Mommy Review is for a pair of Sportie Wahoo Baby Shoes from Rileyroos!

Kim and Brian are the people behind Rileyroos. They dreamt it up when, after having their first child, they noticed a severe "lack of stylish and developmentally friendly shoe choices". Their attention to style and comfort, as well as detail, has made Rileyroos an extremely popular line of baby shoes!

Calvin has a pair of their Sportie line in the Wahoo design. These shoes are so cute, I can't get over it! They are just as stylish as Adult shoes (if not more so) but I have a sneaking suspicion that they're a lot more comfortable. It could be the oh-so-baby-soft leather (love it!), or it could be the flexibility, allowing their feet to move in a more natural way. I think it's both :)

I love how they even made the toes of them curl up in order to help babies get better leverage when they are crawling. It's little details like this, along with the quality and style, that make Rileyroos so amazing. Every mom needs to get her little one a pair! Trust me, when you get your Rileyroos, the only thing that will disappoint you is the fact that your little one will grow out of them. But that's why you just buy more ;) I have a sneaking suspicion that I may become, (or already am) a Rileyroos Addict. (Rileyroos Anonymous anyone?)

I like the Mary Janes in MINT. cdziuba@aol.com

Ashley said...

How cute are these?! My babes are too big, unfortunately, but I know many a little ones who would love having their feeties cozied up in a pair of these! My fave is the Sportie Wahoo...

Greta said...

These really ARE adorable. In a world where it is quite difficult to find stylish baby shoes, they stand apart, they're Rileyroos!

I think the Caters OR Sportie (in Aspen) would look adorable on my son!

Greta said...

P.S. I have your button on my blog.

"little sister" is my favorite

sabb266 said...

Okay this is just awesome, I just had to enter this contest and blog about it because the shoes are called Riley Roos I have a granddaughter named Riley so how absolutely perfect would it be for her to be wearing a pair of shoes with her name on them! I picked the JAKESTER - as the description says, they are a stylish, yet simple and who doesnt love the fact that they have a Velcro closure.

heacollins said...

I like the Caters boots in hotpink and the dakota (sunset). The boots would be great for our colorado fall/winters.. I would be so grateful to win this! thanks for the chance!

I love the Sportie in Wahoo. All these shoes are so adorable. Thanks for this giveaway.

layla said...

I like the Mary Janes in Brownie the best. Or maybe in Bubble Gum. It's so hard to decide. I love them all. My daughter learned to walk last month. We have been looking for shoes that will protect her feet but that aren't "clunky" and make her lose her balance. These sound perfect.

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

I really like the Caters boots for toddler girls in Cotton Candy pink. They look so comfy and just like Uggs. I am impressed by how a different sole was added for the toddler sizes. I can totally picture my daughter running around in those.

Thanks for the extra cool giveaway!!

I don't know if I have to post this everytime, but I will just in case. I have your button up on my blog A Blog of Goodies. Thanks again!!

Team Chilton said...

You reviewed the Sportie Whaoo...my favorite is the firefly (does that count for different). I love the colors, even though I'm sure my sons wouldn't have many outfits to match them, but as my husband says "clashing is the new matching." I think the colors are great! (butterscotch is another fave)

The Dakotas are just what I would need. Perfect for this summer weather and stylish. My poor son only has a few pairs of shoes because there are not many stylish and comfortable shoes out there for him. I really like this site, the shoes look so comfortable!

Kristinia - Loving Heart Mommy said...

I love being able to find cute and comfy shoes especially with soo many growing feet in my household. We checked out Rileyroos and I like the Caters, they remind me of my UGGS, soo cute for a lil' boy. I believe my son Gabriel could still fit the largest size. The cotton candy Caters would be adorable for our baby girl Helana though, she's due September 7th so I know no worries on the sizing there!
