Mama Loves: KEEN

Welcome to another week of Mama Loves! I'm so thrilled that you stopped by!

Not sure what Mama Loves is? Check out the Mama Loves page for the scoop on what Mama Loves is all about.

Also---to see all the amazing ideas that have been shared here, check out the Mama Loves Pinterest page. So many crazy-good ideas there!
Couple great ideas to check out this week:
Our rule for shoes for our girls is to get them one pair of well-made, supportive shoes at a time. That's it. So---they wear them to church, the park, and everywhere in between.

At the recommendation of a friend, and fellow twin mama, we decided to get the girls KEEN sandals for the summer. I have to tell you, this was a great recommendation---mamas do know best, after all. Hence the whole reason for this linky party!

This spring, Amazon was having a great sale on KEEN sandals, so we made our purchase. Two pairs of the Newport H2 Sandals.

 Here's what I love about them: 
  • They dry really quickly. The girls love to help their mama water the flowers, which really means that they just love to play in the water, and their feet, inevitably get wet.
  • They are sandals, but the protect their toes from getting banged up. 
  • And, by far, the best feature is that they are machine washable! Yes, that's right! They get muddy, they get smelly; just throw them in the wash, and they air dry lickety-split (there's that word again!).
My friend also tells me that they hold up really well, so the resale value is pretty fantastic when you're all finished with them. So far, I'd have to say that she's right. I just ran our girls' shoes through the wash the other day, and they came out of the wash looking like I'd just taken them out of the shoebox for the first time.

Can't wait to see what you're loving!

This is our second year to buy some type of athletic sandals like that. We buy Stride Rite brand, but they boast some of the same features...including being machine washable. I love them for all the same reasons you outlined!

Those look like a nifty pair of shoes...I could learn a thing or two from YOU too! My kids have WAY too many pairs of pair at a time sounds like a great idea!

Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?

I'm getting fed up of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
