Got them the other day. Really nicely made although the size is larger than what you might buy at Walmart. Got an 8 since my guy is in a 7. They’re more like 9s but that’s ok with the way his lil feet keep growing! So happy to have squeaker shoes again
Of all the reviews for baby's first shoes, Ikiki's came out on top because of Duchess Bubblegum Sparkles. My daughter is currently a "cruising" almost 1 yr old. Purchased the size 5 based on the fit guide provided. With socks they are perfect, including room to grow. She squeaks them quite well...let's see how long the stay "on". Everything about buying these shoes was as expected. Updates and shipping status notices were nice AND the packaging was great (as a shoe hoarder- Mommy). Can't wait til she's rocking these shoes unassisted! The piggies are next
They arrived so fast & in a nice canvas bag. My two year old loves running around in them and we get so many compliments. My only issue is the soles are white so every time we get home, I have to clean them off. We have only had them a couple of days and there is already some permanent dirt built on them even though I have tried so hard to keep them nice and it’s only been a week. If I could change anything it would be the white soles! Other than that we love them.
My 3 yo daughter recently got SMOs, and I was having a hard time finding affordable shoes which would fit with her orthotics. At the recommendation of a FB group, I ordered these sneakers. They are true to the ikiki size chart and do not need to be sized up to fit SMOs (at least, for my child). The sneakers are stylish, have Velcro bands wide enough for the orthotics, and are good quality. The squeakers encourage my child to pick her feet up and jump, which is a skill she was having a hard time with. I will definitely purchase more shoes from ikiki!
I love these shoes, but most importantly my kid loves these shoes. She actually cried when we tried to take them off of her because she adores them so much. The squeakers are loud enough that you can hear them while your child runs or in my case prances through a playground area, insuring that you can track him or her as these kids tend to teleport. The quality and design is perfect. They look like and feel like real kid shoes rather than tiny adult shoes that seem to be slapped together with cardboard and spit like some other kid shoes.

No, we don't sell our shoes through normal stores. Doing so would mean we would have to either:
- 1. Charge more.
- 2. Not use such premium materials.
Our shoes run pretty true-to-size but it's always a good idea to check out our sizing guide.
The squeaker in the sole of your kid's shoes can become damaged in sand, water, or mud. If you want the squeaker to keep working (and we know at least your kids do) we recommend not getting them wet or sandy.
Yes! We have many customers that use orthotics, we typically suggest buying 2 sizes larger than your child's un-braced foot size in order to fit the braces. For more info see our "ikiki™ Mobility" page.
Standard free shipping (US only) takes about 3-5 business days. If you're eager to get squeaking, faster shipping options are available at checkout.
Usually this is caused by one of three things:
- The squeaker is turned off
If you can see red on the squeaker then slide the switch to the other side. (You might be reaching to slide it back to the off position soon).
- Your child isn't quite 20 lbs.
This usually only happens in the smallest sizes (3, 4 and sometimes 5). To test it squeeze the heel with your hand - if you hear a squeak then rest assure that as your child grows the squeaks will get louder and louder.
- The squeaker needs to be primed
Sometimes the squeakers need to be broken in to get the air circulating inside. Squeeze the squeaker by hand ten times and see if it starts squeaking.
If none of these resolves it please send us a message and let us make it right! While it isn't common sometimes the squeaker itself is defective.
It's better not to submerge the shoe - sometimes water can damage the reed which can keep them from squeaking. (And if that sounds good to you we recommend familiarizing yourself with how the "off switch" works).
To spot clean:
- Mix a small amount of hand or dish soap with warm water.
- Apply with a small cloth or sponge.
If you have deep stains an old toothbrush can do wonders. (We strongly recommend retiring it after this mission).
- Rinse with fresh, warm water.
You want to completely remove the soap. Repeat as needed.
- Let the shoes dry before your next adventure.
