I ordered two size 5, one pair of shoes and the other the sandal. The sandal was way too small with no room at the toe. Called to do an exchange and the rep over the phone confirmed that the sandals fit smaller than the shoe. I wanted to do an exchange but the rep never processed my request and size 6 was sold out by the time I reached out a second time. Sad. Really wanted these for my niece. Two stars for the let down on customer service but they’re really good shoes for my niece.
Love these little squeak sandals! They fit just as well over my daughter’s SMOs as the regular sneakers from ikiki. We’ll be buying the next size up when she outgrows these.
My 2 year old grand daughter loves these ikiki shoes, she has all the characters, when I found out there were sandals I just had to get those too! Nice fit, well made true to size, now if you could only restock Carl Reef the boys sandals, my 2 year old grandson could rock them for summer too. I hope you make more
These are our first pair of sandals and i will be back to buy another pair! We found IKIKI's last year and we have ended up buying 3 pairs of Dchess Bubbleguy shoes which are my little ladies faves so these were perfect for her.
My little one loves her "squeeky" sneakers as we call them... so had to get her the sandals of course. They are super cute and look very comfy which is what I was looking for in sandals for a 1 year old. Also the toe area is safe since they are closed in the front. Love the concept.

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. Check out our shipping policy here.
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.
The insoles are made to be easily removable. This makes it easier to to fit AFOs or SMOs. If you find that the heel of the insole is lifting or don't want sneaky kids to be able to remove them, we recommend putting a little flexible adhesive (like E6000 or Loctite Flexible Adhesive) under the insole.
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.
We have a great article to explain it!
We want to protect our critter friends, so none of our shoes use any animal products. ikikis are Vegan friendly. We do use 30% natural rubber, which contains latex.
