A special thanks to Keep for providing the Miss Frugal Mommy blog with a product for free in exchange for an honest review!
“Launched in the summer of 2006, Keep came into being through the solid combination of timing, auspicious zodiacal forecasts and the deep desire to make classic, clean shoes without the bulk and bother of other brands. Keep is a shoe company, an amalgam of interests, a way of being, a force, a language, a family and many other things. We aim to keep things personal. We pay attention to the details. We try to keep things simple and pure.”
“…making all Keep products vegan and cruelty-free. This means no animals were harmed when making our shoes. This also means that we produce all of our footwear in factories audited by international, third-party non-profits who monitor ethical working conditions…”
“…We use natural, organic, and sustainably-grown materials as much as possible. We treasure the longtime traditions of handicraft, especially in textiles, and source materials from artisans in Guatemala, Japan and North America…”

There is nothing more important than providing your infant/toddler with the best shoes for their busy little feet. With summer just around the corner and many walks in store, I want to make sure my son’s feet are comfortable while doing so. Additionally, we are currently learning about being green at home and these beautifully made vegan shoes could not have come at a better time. What intrigued me most about Keep was the fact that they strive to use the most “…natural, organic, and sustainably-grown materials…” These handcrafted, high quality shoes are also available at a surprisingly affordable price, I would have expected them to be much more expensive judging from the quality!
So let me discuss how life with a three year old and a pair of Keep Vegan shoes has been the past month! The weather has been simply beautiful here in Georgia and we have spent many hours outdoors. From walks around the neighborhood, running through the backyard, jumping about the local playground and traveling store to store running errands, these shoes have been through it all! My son is a handful for sure and full of endless amounts of energy, his feet never seem to stop moving! With that being said, it’s important to me that he have comfortable and supportive shoes to keep him from falling. What I love most about the Kids Guerra Patriot shoes is how they are above the ankles, which provides the full ankle support that I love. They also provide plenty of cushion around the ankles and under the soles, so a day running around the yard won’t give my son sore feet.
One would assume that after all these shoes have been through, they would be quite worn. I have to say that these shoes have handled the elements and activity amazingly well and still look practically new! There is no doubt about it, these are very nice, high quality and well made shoes that were designed to last. The most delightful part about these shoes is how much my son adores them, he currently refuses to wear anything else. I no longer ask him which shoes he would like to wear today (generally to avoid a tantrum) but because I know which pair he is going to choose. He also finds such excitement in telling every person that will listen about his nice new shoes. A pair of shoes that both mother and son love and adore most defiantly says something about how great these Keep shoes are! I highly recommend these shoes, which are available in many styles for both infant/toddlers and adults. Plus did I mention how amazing their prices are!?
