Vincent Shoes Review & Giveaway


Vincent shoes were founded because of a little boy named Vincent. I am a BIG fan of little boys, but maybe it's because I'm biased because I have two little boys of my own....that has to be it :) When Vincent was born in 1998 in Stockholm Sweden, his uncle Thomas and partner Patrick wanted to find a pair of shoes to take him. Not finding anything they liked,  they began designing a line of their own, and the rest of history.

The Review: We received a pair of the Oskar children's shoes in blue for Chandler. As soon as we pulled the shoes out of the box, Chandler said, "Oh cool!" and immediately wanted to put them on. He loves this particular style and I do too. They are a great cool kid's sandal for summer, and I love that they are a closed toe sandal to protect his little feet. The front of the shoe has the toe bump, which protects those little toes from getting hurt. It really lets you know that their toes are protected, because we all know that little kids aren't always exactly careful. These also double as a great sneaker with socks. These shoes have awesome flexibility and after feeling the inside of the shoe and watching Chan wear them, they seem extremely comfortable and move well with his feet. The velcro is very functional, holds well, and enables Chandler to put his shoes on by himself, which he is VERY proud of.
On each of the shoes, Vincent adds Designers notes which are fun to read and very witty. I couldn't help but think of Chandler when I read the designer's note about the Oskar shoe we got for him:

"Oskar has all the elements necessary to grow into a stunt man. He climbs onto the countertops to reach the high cabinets then leaps down without a second thought. If your baseball is knocked out of the park, he’s the first one to scale the fence to get it back. His favorite pastime with friends is horseplay."

I love the little details Vincent adds to their  shoes, like the contrasting colors and stitching. I also love that there are a lot of gender neutral shoes that are offered in boy and girl colors. You can definitely tell there are some great designers designing these shoes, as they have some fashion forward styles. New collections come out in the Spring and Fall and offer about 40 different styles to choose from. The Vincent collections start with their baby shoes at 6 months, include a wide range of toddler shoes,  and go up to 8 years with their children's shoes.  Not sure what size your child should be wearing? Vincent has taken this into consideration and has a shoe fitter guide you can download and print out.
I am really impressed with Vincent and their shoes. Chan has worn them everywhere and they still look like new. Pretty great considering he is 3 and rough on everything he comes in contact with.

The Bottom Line: Fashion forward, awesome quality children's shoes

Price: $20-$55 depending on style
