So I have to admit it, my 4 year old daughter has a very quirky personality. She, like many other little girls, loves princesses and fairies, and of course her favorite color is pink. However, if you ask Sophie if she wants to pretend to be a princess or a fairy, she vehemently refuses. See, these imaginary characters don't have enough of an edge for my little diva. She is a bit of a tough cookie, so she prefers to be a super hero, a villain, and yes, even a monster. (Guess her extensive wardrobe of dress-up Princess clothes will be collecting dust for a little while longer.)
So when I discovered the fun new footwear from Clawz, I knew these shoes would absolutely thrill my not-so-conventional little girl. You see, at first glance, these shoes look much like other rubber shoes commonly worn in summer. Where does the fun come in? The claws! Yes! These fun shoes are fashioned after the wildest of beasts, and have some foreboding looking claws at the toes! They even come in a wide variety of fun colors, and are offered for the whole family! Toddlers, kids, and adults alike can let their inner beast roar this summer in these whimsical shoes.
Naturally, Sophie just HAD to have the Clawz in Pink. Her shoes arrived very quickly, and were extremely well-packaged. Oh, you should have heard the squeals and giggles when she first caught a glance of these babies. And yes, she said her shoes would turn her into a "scary monster to chase Xander." Her words, not mine. Gotta love sibling rivalry!
Clawz are made from a soft yet durable rubber, and are ergonomically designed to provide a fierce yet comfortable look.
As you can see, the inside of these shoes has a bumpy pattern. Don't worry, though. They're squishy and soft, and actually feel like you're getting a gentle foot massage while you walk. Massages of any kind are a rare commodity in this house, so I am secretly a little jealous that Sophie gets to enjoy this luxury.
There are also straps that keep the Clawz secured on the foot. These can go around the heel area while on the run, or they can be pushed forward for a slip-on style shoe.
Clawz can be washed with ordinary soap and water, and even have air vents to help keep feet cool and avoid any sticky, sweaty, stinky feet. (You parents out there know how smelly itty-bitty feet can be! Or is that just MY brood?)
I can't help but smile when I look at the profile of these shoes. Sure, they're a bit kooky and a bit wild, but summer is all about fun. I think they'd be a great footwear option when we head to the local water park. They're super comfy, vibrantly colored, and obviously won't be harmed by exposure to the water. I think Sophie will love wearing these as we walk around the park, and they'll keep her little tootsies from being burned by the hot pavement.
Of course Sophie loves wearing her Clawz, whether it's indoors or outside. They're a wee bit roomy still, even when ordering the proper size based on her measurements, so this will allow her to wear these for a good long while. (You can check out the Clawz sizing chart HERE.)
I think I have literally created a monster in introducing my kids to Clawz. Sophie wears them all the time, even when she's in her PJ's and ready for bed. She also wears them outside playing, and all the kids in the neighborhood think she's got the coolest shoes ever!
Overall, I would definitely recommend Clawz if you're looking for a fun way to express your wild side this summer. These are great for the entire family, and are a wonderful value. While you may not choose to wear your Clawz to the office, you could definitely wear them around town. Just imagine the smiles from your children and passers-by alike when you unleash your inner animal with these fun, funky shoes!
