Everything was quiet. Lights were turned off. Rain and Richie were fast asleep. And so were the rest of the world. Only sound I could hear was the hum of the airconditioner, and the only light in the room was from the iPad, emitting on my face. I was catching up on my blog hopping when I saw something in Animetric's post that caught my attention...
LOOK AT THESE FUNKY MISMATCHED SHOES!!!!!!!!!!
I'm not much of a fashion person (actually I'm not at all) but I fell in love with these shoes right away. It was love at first sight! And I didn't want them for me. I wanted them for Rain! (It's true what they say that a mom's priorities will really intentionally change).
Apparently, they're called Chooze and this brand is known in the US and is now here in the Philippines on all KidSport Stores. They're known for making comfortable shoes that look different from each other, but retained an element which makes them look somehow the same. Like for example, same color scheme but different print. You get the point. It's their way of promoting and celebrating individuality and uniqueness!
Needless to say, I immediately joined Animetric's contest. But I remember I had already won one of giveaways before so I didn't want to push my luck. Luckily, a few days after, Mommy Fleur also held a Chooze giveaway! Yahoooo! And I felt like a lucky lotto winner when I found out after a few weeks that I win! woot! woot! It's in the stars!!!!

We went to KidSport in Galleria but because I have this bad habit of not reading, turns out the gift certificate I won was only valid at Shangri-La. Richie was not amused. So I just planned another trip to Shangri-La to claim it.

|My first Chooze crush!|
I was really hoping to get this design for Rain but they only had it in bigger sizes. (heartbroken). I wanted to get a size that would enable Rain to wear it for a long time. If i got her current size now, she would outgrow it in just a couple of weeks for sure.
Here are the final three! I tell you its probably the longest I have spent deciding on shoes. The one on the left is super cute though I thought they looked too different from afar. People might think my child really has on two different shoes by mistake hehe (Nakaka OC hahaha! That's just my opinion). The red is super cute too! But red is hard to pair with a lot of Rain's dainty colored outfits. So I went with the one in the middle :-) it was just right that it looked different but it has the same lilac shade.
You can tell the quality of the shoes are sturdy enough for everyday use, and comfortable. And also, it's easy to wear! No complicated shoe strings. I can't wait till it fits her perfectly! Thinking of buying one for me too! :-) Heheheehe.
