Sizing Guide FAQs

Prince Kairu is back, and he's ready for summer :)

NOTE:  These sandals run large.  We recommend that you order *one size smaller* of the sandal than you would for our normal shoes.  If you ordered a sandal and it is too large or small, please contact us and we will exchange it for the right size for free.  (We’ll work on fixing the sizing for our next batch)

This is our initial trial run of ikiki sandals. We are still working on making the squeaker completely sand and waterproof but haven't quite figured out the best way to do that. We suggest turning the squeak "off" when your little one is near sand and water. We hope you love the sandals and would love to hear your feedback and ideas for improvement. Happy Squeaking!

As prince of the Frog Kingdom, Prince Kairu has many important responsibilities, like learning how to be a prince. But Prince Kairu would much rather spend his time catching flies or working toward his goal of being the first amphibious Olympic swimmer.

If he doesn't qualify for the swimming competitions, he's sure he would be a shoe-in for the high jump.

He loves them!

I was looking for shoes that will be fun and comfortable for my 1 year old. He loves being barefoot but at day care they require that he wear shoes. He got used to them so quickly that he know brings them to us to put them on. Ladies at the day care appreciate the on and off option :)

LOVE

We have had ikiki in the past and always love them. My son is obsessed with his prince kairus! He even likes to wear them around the house to make them squeak, it's super cute! They run big so we got the kairus a size smaller and they fit great with still a bit of growing room! Great for summer so his feet don't get too hot!

LOVE! - just one little thing...

I love these sandals for my one year old who just started walking. He has wide chubby feet and these fit great. However, after only 2 weeks of wear, the notch that controls the on/off for the squeaker has broken on one of the shoes. So technically only one shoe "works" but they still do the job of covering his feet otherwise. I'll likely call the company with my complaint. :)

So sorry to hear about the switch breaking on the shoes! I would be happy to send you a replacement. Are you still at the same address?

Happy Feet, happy kid

These new sandals are by far the best shoes Ikiki has made so far. I love them, but most importantly Isabelle loves them even more. When her shoes came in the mail, she already knew they were her shoes and had them on the wrong feet in seconds ( new mom and daughter will be 2 next month-so I don't know when they are actually supposed to start putting their shoes on) This was her 1st time actually trying to put her own shoes own. I should have paid better attention to instructions when Ikiki said to size down because they shoes do run big, but hey they still stay on her feet which is an amazing thing because she runs just to hear her shoes! The shoe is perfect!! I hope Ikiki makes more/different kind of sandals.



FAQs


We want to take the stress out of buying online, so if you got the wrong size we'll take care of shipping (both ways, US only). Just contact us within 30 days and let us know your Order #. We'll send you your correct size FIRST, with a new shipping label for the old pair included, so your little one won't have to go without their critter buddies.

The only thing we ask is that you check the size as soon as you get them* and if a size exchange is needed return them in new condition. We reserve the right to refuse worn shoes.

*If the shoes were a gift for a birthday or other special occasion, reach out to us and we'll work with you if they are still new, but were just waiting to be opened on the special day.


Our Site 90-Day Money Back Guarantee
If you or your little one doesn't love the shoes, contact us! Send them back within 90-days and we'll refund you, but they must be in new condition to be eligible. Applies to US orders only.

If you are an Amazon customer, you must be within their 30-day return policy.


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.
(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 you're eager to get squeaking, faster shipping options are available at checkout.


Usually this is caused by one of three things:
  1. 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).
  2. 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.
  3. 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:
  1. Mix a small amount of hand or dish soap with warm water.
  2. 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).
  3. Rinse with fresh, warm water.
    You want to completely remove the soap. Repeat as needed.
  4. Let the shoes dry before your next adventure.



We have a great article to explain it!
