Back to the Eleven shoes. They arrived in the mail today and they are just as expected. They fit perfectly which is what I wanted. Connor needs shoes that will fit right now. They have the best velcro closures I've ever seen. These shoes are going to stay on his feet because I'm not showing him how to take them off yet. Each shoe has two velcro closures that go both directions. I took a photo from above so you can see what I mean. The shoes are solid and look like they'll handle a lot of wear. They've got lot of grip on the bottom and I am just generally impressed with the overall quality. They even feel nice. Of course, they look great too which is always important.
The only bad news is that I am pretty sure that something is going on with the Eleven Shoes company. I am not 100% sure they going out of business but I believe that was the jist of what I read on Twitter the other day. Because of this, I just checked the www.kidsteals.com website archives to see if I could stock up on another pair or two and I could and I did. In fact, there are a couple styles available tonight that weren't there when I checked last so I got a different style for Connor and even got a pair for Aleena to wear when she's a bit older. Here's a direct link if you're interested. Eleven Shoes on the KidSteals Archives
