With two boys I’m a huge fan of kid casual wear and clothing items that are going to last the entire time my kid fits into them. IFME Children’s Footwear sent complimentary shoes for me to try out with my sons and share my thoughts with readers. As always, all opinions are my own. To see my review posting policies please visit my policies page.
When the ultrasound showed me I was having my second son all I could think about was how the boys would someday be friends. And then I thought about all the cute outfits I’d get to dress them in. Yep, I’m that mom.
While I lean against matching outfits, I do love a good coordinated ensemble. When IFME Children’s Footwear sent me their lookbook of bright, colorful, and comfortable footwear for both babies and children I couldn’t resist a Brother Style post featuring brightly colored and playful kid casual wear.
The day I took these photos it was ridiculously bright outside and the Waffle Window across the street from this amazing wall was busy! After we shot our photos and enjoyed some waffles at least four other groups of people took photos at this wall. We ended up giving our balloons to someone who was celebrating his birthday and wanted to take photos with the yellow and teal. A great color combo if I might say. Speaking of great color combos… the fun color combinations of these shoes inspired the whole brother style photo shoot. I wanted it to be casual and bright.
Stripes, denim and the IFME shoes really gave the fun and casual feel that I wanted for the day. I didn’t worry about anything getting ruined when we ate waffles and played in the park. Perfect for two busy little guys.
IFME (The name IFME, short for “IF it was ME,” reflects the brand’s deep commitment to customer satisfaction) was launched in 1999 in Japan as the original brand of Marubeni Footwear. With a priority on the healthy development of children’s feet, the brand was developed based on research and development with Japanese medical professionals specializing in pediatric podiatry. Since 1999 IFME has sold a total of 16 million pairs of shoes globally and is launching in the states in spring 2016. Marubeni has named North American Shoe Company as its U.S. distributor and is looking to expand the iconic brand in the U.S. market.
