This week, we had the privilege of trying out a pair of black & white skull Booties from MEandREEKIE.
When I saw them in her shop, i thought they were quite possibly the cutest things i had ever seen. And at the time, her new little shop only had 19 sales!! I knew I could help to change that, and here we are. She graciously sent me the most amazing pair of shoes my boys have ever owned. The photos do not even do them justice. I opened up my package and honestly just couldn't believe it. The quality is by far some of the best I have seen on etsy... the materials? Top of the line... Every detail is perfection... "Boots have black cotton duckcloth on the outside (denimlike weight), soft, fuzzy, ivory fleece on the inside, next to the babies skin. Skull and crossbone ultrasuede applique are cut and sewn by me! Elastic in the back, around the ankle and a snap closure. Bottom is made of ultrasuede (ivory for smaller sizes, black for those over walking age). All seams are enclosed in bias tape to ensure the utmost comfort of your babies tootsies! These booties will not fall off! Guaranteed to last through your next child as well :) Available sizes, Newborn, 6, 9, 12, 18, 24 months, and 2-3 years" When she mentions the "fleece" inside i really think its an understatement... to me its like a Minky Lambie... it is soft like butter... so squishy... so warm... and totally baby approved. How do I know? Because ever since they came in... zavery spends about 3/4 of his time wearing them.
The other night was a TOTAL meltdown because I took them off to change his diaper and put on jammies... footie Jammies... well he wasn't having ANY of that, and made me put the booties ON TOP of the footies... can you believe it? Its a true story. I couldn't help but laugh and think.. i totally have to mention this in the review, lol.
Not into the black and white skull booties? (is that possible? lol) Have no fear... there are SO many other options in her shop...
First off, the girlie version.... Pink with a gray skull.... ADORABLE!
You can create your own... Gray denim w/ your choice of fleece... "FLEECE CHOICES - please specify when ordering:
white, ivory, light yellow, bright yellow, light blue, aqua blue, navy blue, bright pink, tangerine, burnt orange, red, lime green, olive green, forest green, lavender, grape, burgundy, eggplant, brown, black."
And my personal favorite (aside from the b&w skulls) Is the black with the red check/houndstooth..
I really recommend these 100% to anyone with a kid in the newborn to 3 range. Zaq has even been requesting a pair for himself... first thing he said... I wish i could have skull booties like that!! Maria? Christmas perhaps? lol could ya make that happen?
Well anyways - I know what you guys want... your prolly thinking... GET TO THE GOOD PART! WHAT CAN I WIN!?
