Review and Giveaway: Polliwalks

I’m going to show my age here, but follow me while I reminisce for a minute….

The most FUN pair of shoes I had when I was growing up was Jellies!  Remember those?  Basically, they were clear rubbery shoes that just about everybody wore in the early 80’s.  I loved my Jellies.  I had a ton of colors and even some sparkly ones (I was a dork then, too)!  Who knew shoes could be FUN for kids?!?


Well, Polliwalks did!  This innovative company with the slogan “Fun for Feet,”  has perfectly combined fit, function and fun in their line of childrens shoes!

From their website:

Polliwalks™ was born from the imagination of long time footwear designer and former toy designer, Joel Rusnak.  He had the idea that children’s shoes should be fun and offer toy like features that will make wearing shoes a playful experience, while offering support, stability and comfort for little feet.

polliwalksanimals The shoes are offered in 11 different styles, all resembling animals!  From fish to puppies, cats to fireflys, Polliwalks has a shoe to fit your little one’s foot and imagination.  Each shoe features built -in arch support and a deep heel cup to ensure stability and support.  Not only does the shoe look like an animal, but it’s Footprinter Bottom will leave animal tracks to match when walking through sand, mud or water!  In addition, several products have added features like changing colors or light up tails!

Lily received a pair of Fish Lips in Sky Blue and she went BONKERS for these shoes!  The lips of the shoe turn purple when exposed to UV light, so Lily spent almost an hour running inside and outside to watch her shoes turn color.  I started to wonder if this was a shoe or a toy?!? LOL!


The fun design immediately drew her in, but it was the function that sold me!  The sandal design is great for slipping on and off when in a hurry.  However, the Fish Lips shoe features a removable elastic heel strap which ensures that the shoe will stay put.  The material is very low maintenance requiring only a damp cloth or mild soap for cleaning.

On her way to dance class, Lily stopped to demonstrate how her cool new shoes change color:
