Now that the weather is finally warming up, my kids are going to be outside running around, riding bike and playing outside almost every day and chance they get. With that comes the need of wearing a comfortable sneaker that can keep up with their rough play.
If your kids are anything like my kids, they like to create and make things their own. I was recently introduced to Fayvel, a customizable kids shoe that your child can decorate with Frieze Tags which are stick-on. Not only do kids get to customize and decorate their own shoe, but they get to wear a stylish and comfortable shoe to play in!
The Fayvel sneakers come in 4 different colors: pink, purple, green and blue. Currently, they come available in kids sizes 10, 11, 12, 13, 1 and 2 and sizes 3 and 4 will be available this May.
With the Fayvel sneakers, you can purchase Frieze Tags, which are velcro and stick right to the sides of the shoe. There are 13 different themes/packs available which each have 4 tags on them. The themes are: Medieval, Superhero's, Under the Sea, Pirates, Space, Fairies, Music, Spooky, Cruisin' (transportation), Winter Fun, Valentines, Valentines II and Sports.
We received a pair of the pink sneakers and purple sneakers, along with 10 packs of Frieze Tags to review with my daughter. She was so excited when her new shoes arrived at our home, and couldn't wait to try them on!
As you can see in the pictures above and below, the purple sneakers (as well as the blue sneakers) come with shoes laces, while the pink (and green sneakers) come in velcro lace style. We asked for a size 11 and they are true to fit.
Once my daughter tried on both shoes, she said they felt great and she couldn't wait to ride bike with them on once the snow melts outside! She loves both colors and really loves that she can put on the velcro sneakers herself since she hasn't mastered tying shoes on her own yet.
Putting on the Frieze Tags was very simple to do. You can put them on and take them off easily enough, but at the same time I know they are not going anywhere when my daughter is wearing them-- they are on very tightly. It's fun for my daughter to place the Frieze Tags on where she wants to on each side of her shoes, she gets to be creative and have fun at the same time!
I can't say anything negative about these shoes. My daughter feels that they are comfortable when wearing them, and we both love that she can design her shoes with fun Frieze Tags. I can say however, that I do wish there were more girly themed Frieze Tags. Hopefully Fayvel will come out with more! Also, I am curious to see how cleaning the off-white velcro color will be once they do get a little dirty from being outside.
Overall, we think both styles of Fayvel shoes are great and the Frieze Tags are easy and fun to use! Our son's feet aren't quite big enough to fit in Fayvel's smallest offered size sneaker, however once his feet are big enough I'd love to get him a pair in either green or blue!
