See Kai. See Kai crawl (in a pair of Smaller booties).
Look! Kai is walking (in her See Kai Run shoes).
Kai is growing. Her feet are getting bigger, too. Uh-oh! Kai needs new shoes: big-kid shoes.
Kai, the latest from beloved shoe manufacturer See Kai Run, fits feet sizes eight to thirteen. It’s perfect for the preschool crowd ready to ditch naps and sippies, but still provides flexible soles to support growing feet.
The fall line includes eight styles: two-tone trainers (black and gray, blue and gray) and brown ankle boots for little guys, plus Mary Janes (black patent, brown with hearts, pink with flowers, magenta) and gray boots with floral appliques for the gals.
Every pair (save for the girls’ boots) uses See Kai Run’s Velcro closure for easy on and off.
See Kai assert her independence.
