These adorable animal sneakers from Ikiki are designed specifically to attract kids and to encourage them to get moving and playing. The goal for the project was to make a shoe that only kids would want to wear. Ikiki is a line of adorable animal sneakers that features playful animal faces and characteristics.

Each shoe has a built-in adjustable squeaker that is designed to aid children in developing good walking habits. The fun design appeals to children and the high-top ankle supporter appeals to parents. The soles of the shoes are cushioned and made to be extra flexible to keep up with fast-moving feet.

Instead of taking adult shoes and shrinking them down, Ikiki created a whole line of kid-only footwear. Ikiki designs children shoes, baby booties and hats for toddlers as well.
