'Ikiki' is a Line of Animal Shoes That Encourages Kids to Run & Walk

 - Jun 17, 2015
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.
