I had never heard of IFME Children’s Footwear until I was recently given the opportunity to work with the brand and boy am I thrilled about it. Recently, the brand launched its first spring collection in America early this year (2016). "The name IFME, short for 'IF it was ME,' reflects the brand’s deep commitment to customer satisfaction." The size range for Baby is 4.5 – 7 and for Child is 8 – 1. So even though Dane has grown past the shoes, they still work great for Declan AND potentially for the new baby arriving this fall!
My mother brought him home this past weekend asking where to get another pair for him and potentially the rest of the gang (obviously she enjoyed the stress-free style). He's mentioned several times how much better his feet and toes feel. He says they aren't confined, his toes can wiggle when they need to, and he feels like "they can breathe" which I think is just great especially as a mother of boys. If Declan is happy and asking for another pair, I know this is the brand for him!
"IFME offers unique features and design elements that support a child’s foot movement and help muscles exert their full potential. To promote correct foot position and posture, IFME has developed a unique functional insole that allows the toes to splay and advances healthy arch development. IFME shoes also utilize a unique technology called MOFF, or “Marvelous Odor Free Fiber.” This natural cotton-based deodorizing fiber is mechanically treated by superior nanotechnology. MOFF absorbs 150 times as much ammonia odor as activated charcoal, at 20 times the speed, keeping children’s active feet odor free."
Available to Purchase/Cost: Shoes styles
The MSRP ranges between $40.00 - $45.00 in store and even better priced on Amazon for the kids shoes.
Recommendation: I think these are great shoes and while I do think they seem a bit costly for a child's shoe (especially one they can grow out of quite quickly) they are a healthy, quality shoe. I am hoping the price drops a little with now expanding to the U.S.! Whether you have a boy, girl, or infant you will want to check their selection out.
