My oldest son loves his light-up shoes, but I've never bought any for the kids that actually squeak! I was contacted by Wee Squeak Shoes for a review and was immediately curious. I'd seen them in a children's specialty clothing store before and they looked so adorable. I knew I just had to have them!
About Wee Squeak Shoes
As parents of infants and toddlers, our inspiration for Wee Squeak shoes was watching our children in these shoes. We discovered these little gems in 2003 while in China adopting our oldest daughter, Chloe. However, during the adopting of our youngest daughter, Ellie, we had the idea to bring some shoes back for our friend's children. Our company, Wee Squeak, was born! We are fun parents, with fun shoes for fun kids!

Looking around the Wee Squeak website, I was immediately torn on which shoes to choose. There are so many cute shoes for boys and girls! I finally decided on the Boys' Tennies, their version of tennis shoes for kids, in navy blue. They are even cuter than they appear on the website and Liam's eyes lit up as soon as he heard them squeak. He couldn't wait to put them on.
Let me just say that we had the hardest time getting Liam to actually walk (due to his disorder and balance issues). He had the hardest time staying upright and just decided he could crawl around much better, so he didn't even start walking until this June, at 19 months! Our biggest mistake? Not buying Wee Squeak shoes earlier!! I am convinced that would have been more than enough encouragement for him to begin walking. Since putting his Tennies on, Liam has walked around everywhere. The first time he wore them, he would jump up and down, laughing his head off the entire time. It was so hilarious! Every time we've gone shopping or to the bank, he walks around so proudly, smiling and showing off his new "shoosh"

I cannot begin to describe how impressed I am with our Wee Squeak shoes and their ability to encourage Liam to walk more often. His balance and his leg strength has increased so very much and he no longer crawls at all. Another reason I love these shoes is because I know where he is at all times. I've even been putting them on him when we are at home. We now live on a river, so I want to keep an eye on him at all times, especially when we are playing outdoors. When we are out shopping, I'm always paranoid one of the kids will run off, but with the squeakers, I can keep up with Liam without a problem! I was initially worried that the squeakers would be annoying, but they are actually very cute and every time we go out, people ask us where we got the shoes and comment on how cute they are. However, if the squeaking ever gets to be annoying, they are removable!
These shoes are awesome and I highly recommend them! They are available in Sizes 1-12, which goes higher than any other squeaker shoes I've seen. My older son wears a size 10 and I just ordered him a pair of green velcro Wee Squeaks with a tattoo print on the sides. He has wanted a pair since his little brother got his!
So, are you ready to try out Wee Squeak Shoes?
