"We're extremely delighted to have won this award especially when you look at the other finalists in this category," says See Kai Run CEO, Helen Rockey. "These are all great brands with wonderful products."
Each year brands are nominated by the public for seven different award categories. From these nominees, Cribsie editors, along with a selection committee, choose the finalists. Finalists are then voted on by the general public. The Cribsies use a secure voting platform that limits users to one unique vote per email address.
When asked what she thought separated See Kai Run from the other footwear brands, Rockey said, "I believe parents recognize the importance of having a shoe that not only looks good on their kiddo but is good for them."
According to Rockey, See Kai Run uses a design approach they call, 'proportional engineering,' where shoes are constructed to the age and foot shape of a growing child.
"As an infant, children's feet are pudgy, cartilage hasn't formed into bone yet and is protected by fat pads," explained Rockey, "this means shoes need to allow feet to flex and toes to wiggle, so feet can form naturally. Our First Walker shoes do just that."
See Kai Run's Spring/Summer '20 collection features 17 different First Walker styles and colorways, including sneakers, sandals, dress shoes and active wear. You can find See Kai Run online and at brick and mortar footwear stores throughout the U.S. and Canada.
