eleven Review and Giveaway CLOSED


Shoes for Little Travelers.

I am convinced I have the world's quickest shoe destroyer.  I'm also convinced shoe companies are designing kids shoes with the intention of making them fall apart as quickly as possible.  I suppose there may be some logical reason for that little piece coming up and over the toe from the the bottom.  But in our family it peels back like a nicely sliced orange peel!
Toes poke through on my kids like I'm running some sort of orphan Annie kids home.  But I'm loving these shoes from eleven.  They are so so cute.  They are easy for my non show tying kiddo to put on himself but they look nicer than the typical velcro styles I can find.  The construction is impressive too.
Oh yeah, and they're comfortable.  They have to look of a dressier shoe but wear like a tennis shoe.
Now....if only they could make them in my size!!!!

About the shoes
Company Info: Eleven Collection is a sister company with See Kai Run, offering the perfect next shoe for every occasion. We are a family-run company headquartered in Portland, Oregon. Apparel and shoe designers Nancy Coronado and Cause Haun have collaborated to create this bold new line.

Sizing:
Eleven’s shoes are available in whole sizes (9-3) and are great for toddlers through early school age children (age 3-8).

Comfortable Fit:
  • Flexible, high-proportion rubber sole
  • Ample toe box
  • Cushioned insoles; padded collars
  • Easy on/off Velcro closures for adjustable fit

Premium Construction:
  • All-leather uppers
  • Durable soles for active kids

Independent Style:
  • Functional Northwest aesthetic
  • Bold, creative colors
  • Classic, vintage styles and swank modern accents

Care:
  • The exterior of our leather shoes can be sprayed with a water-repellent for extra protection, this is recommended for styles which included suede.
  • To clean our shoes, use a mild detergent and a damp cloth.
  • We do not recommend machine washing.

Retail Pricing: Shoes/Boots retail from $54-60; Sandals retail from $48-60.


In a former life, I was a shoe addict. Now, well I often look like a hobo and usually have about 2 pairs of shoes that I ever wear, and at least one of those is a pair of flip flops.

But, I could see myself easily being a kids shoe addict, especially if I had a girl. I mean, really, how cute are these shoes!?!?!?! I might even get a pair for myself if they came in my size!

But when it comes to my boys, I'm not much different. They typically have at max 2 pairs of shoes that they fit. Usually a pair of tennis shoes that they wear 99% of the time and then a nice pair of shoes for when we get dressed up, you know like 2 times a year.
But eleven has some pretty cute shoes for boys too! I mean, not cute, boys don't like to be cute! They're really cool shoes for boys.

But my favorite part of their shoes...can you tell me...are these tennis shoes, or dress shoes?? Because they're made like a tennis shoe, perfect for everyday wear BUT they look nice enough that they can wear them with almost any outfit and look great.
