PaperKrane Review + Giveaway

Did you notice the super cute hi-top booties that Benjamin was wearing last week in the Whistle & Flute Review/Giveaway? We recently received the loveliest package from our friends + sponsors at PaperKrane, which included two different style booties and a mini paper crane mobile for Benjamin. 

PaperKrane is an online shop based out of Australia, created and owned by Kate Corleison. In June, she and her husband, Ken, welcomed their first baby, a daughter named Wren. Last week Little ONE Magazine featured little Miss Wren's nursery, including her fabulous paper crane mobile. I absolutely adore this mobile that Kate sent Benjamin! It's the perfect colors for us and was the inspiration in updating our shared master bedroom. I really debated where to put it because initially I wanted it over his crib, but he is just much too tall! Haha. I ended up putting it on a small wall near the window and above his toys, which I think is perfect for it! So whimsical.
Now, let's talk about these shoes, shall we? I l-o-v-e, love them! First of all, the fit is true to size. Benjamin is wearing a size 5 and in these booties he wears 12-18 mo. (5.5 inches). He has a wide foot and these fit snugly without being too tight. They're easy to slip on and have yet to slide off, even with Benjamin desperately tugging at them. The awesome thing about the hi-tops is that underneath the part that goes up to look like a boot (it can also be folded over) is the same elastic band, which means they stay on just as well. Benjamin is comfortable in them and wears them with zero fuss. Now that he's walking, its really important to me that he wears shoes for comfort and these just happen to be cute to boot. He isn't tripping over extra fabric or too firm of soles. Also, the suede fabric along the soles is really nice. I love the fabric choices all around - so fun and so unique! They're the type of shoes you'll want to match an outfit to.
Check out these new styles being released! The muted neutral colors are perfect for Fall/Winter and make them even more versatile. Also, if you don't follow PaperKrane on Facebook yet, let me be the first to share the exciting news that they're now offering flat rate shipping worldwide for only $10!
AND, they've teamed up with Love, Joleen to bring you this awesome giveaway to win a pair of PaperKrane booties for your favorite little one. This giveaway is open to all International readers! Yipee!! Booties fit most babies newborn to 18 months. See more styles here. Giveaway ends Thursday, October 10th at 11:59 pm EST. Good luck!
