We got Elliott his first pair of Keep shoes a few years ago and before we had them, I loved the way they looked and I especially loved the bright green soles. Once he started wearing them, we decided they were officially awesome. Comfortable, sturdy and of course, stylish. Last year, for Preston's birthday I decided that he needed a pair too. He wears them almost every day and still raves about how comfortable they are and how they keep (pun intended!) really well, he's pretty hard on shoes, but I'm not one to talk! I would love to have some of my own... this pair would do just fine.
