these shoes are one of Charlie's favorites! They squeek! We get so much attention when he is wearing them! Not only are they cute and fun but they are also comfortable for baby!
Got these shoes for my 11 month old daughter who just started walking. She laughs when they squeak. I like that you can turn the squeak off. They fit really nice!
My daughter loves these shoes.... she won't take them off
I feel like there's a gap in what's offered for children's shoes in retail stores vs what's actually needed. These shoes help fill that gap. When the squeakers stop behind me in the store I know that my 2 year old has stopped because something distracted her. They're my helpers to keep an ear out for her.
The construction of the shoe is durable, easy, and adorable.
If I could change anything I would make the squeaker a little softer but that's my personal opinion.
I originally bought these for my 1 year old, however when my 3 year old saw them and that they squeak she immediately wanted a pair. So she picked out the kitty shoes and LOVES them! Daycare and parents love the turn on/off switch ;-).

No, we don't sell our shoes through normal stores. Doing so would mean we would have to either:
- Charge more.
- Not use such premium materials.
(Yeah, we don't like those options either.)
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 your 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.
No! We want to protect our critter friends, so none of our shoes use any animal products. ikiki™s are Vegan friendly !
