Kazowe Shoes“Made in China” isn’t necessarily a selling point these days. Unless you’re the founder of Kazowe Shoes. And you’ve designed and manufactured those adorable kids shoes and boots specifically so your own children, adopted from China, can retain some ties to their homeland.

In addition to having a backstory that a mom like me wants to support,
the funky, stylish shoes from Kazowe, all adapted for Western
tastes from Eastern styles, are the kinds your kids will fall for hard.

The Kazowe
Fall Rider Boots
are the star of the collection–they merge wool
legwarmer and boot, for a totally cool fall look. In person the wool is
quite soft, and holds its shape nicely; no worries about it stretching
out before your kid has outgrown the shoe. Plus the sturdy rubber soles
leave a fun little alphabet print that I know would give my kids one
more reason to stomp around in the dirt. I’m super digging them in black
or red.

I’m also partial to the Cowboy-influenced Kazowe Winter
Boots
, especially in beige, with sensibly waterproof uppers and a
warm, fully lined inside; designer Gail Carruthers is a Canadian mom
after all. She’s looking out for our kids’ toes in the winter. I also
adore the two-toned red
and black mary jane
called Lily Pad, which I’m scared to show my
girls because I doubt they’d ever take them off.

Mamas of boys, you’re in luck too – the Bok
shoe
is rad (and under $35!) and the Jack
Collection
bridges that tricky line between sneaker and dress
shoe quite nicely.

Lots of moms have written to us over the last few months, asking about cool, affordable shoes for children now
that Vincent
Shoes
has bit the dust. I think Kazowe is fitting the bill perfectly. –Liz
