Take It From Me: Skidders Review & GIVEAWAY (closed)

Skidders Review & GIVEAWAY (closed)

Skidders bring a whole new spin to wearing socks and shoes! Their unique, fun, and colorful footwear will have you and your kids walking in comfort and style!
While browsing through my neighborhood Target store, I stumbled across the interesting looking Skidders Shoes. Knowing that I had a 3 ½ year-old daughter who hates to wear socks with her shoes and a 1 ½ year-old boy who could definitely use some traction for walking around on our hard wood floors, I told myself that I must look up this company when I got home and was so pleased that I did.
The Skidders website was way more than I was expecting. Not only did they have great information and detail on their products, but I found such a vast array of products that they offered which I did not see in the Target store. I knew I had to contact them for a review and was so happy to try out their items. 
There are multiple Skidders products to fit the needs and personalities of both you and your kids!
First is their line of Crossover Socks for boys and girls. These Crossover Socks take a new approach to wearing socks with Skidders fusing their gripper material onto the ENTIRE bottom of each sock and then detailing them with fun designs. This gives your kids a lot more traction and stability especially when compared to most other “gripper type socks” that only place a few simple dots on the bottoms of their socks. My son got to review a pair of their Crossover Socks in the Crossbones design and they worked great! It was very amusing comparing the Skidders Crossover Socks with the other socks my son has. I had been using both plain socks and some socks with a grip dots on the bottoms and always had preferred the ones with the grips. However, I was blown away with how much of a difference the Skidders Crossover Socks actually made- particularly on the wood floors that fill most of our house! I don’t really worry about him slipping and falling (a fear that comes into play a lot specifically when going down our wood stairs) because the Crossover Socks are super skid-proof, keeping him safe and sound in all of his indoor adventures!
Next are the Skidders Shoes for girls and boys. Their one-of-a-kind design includes both a durable, non-slip outsole AND a cushioned insole to give your kids great comfort and protection during indoor and outdoor play. I was fascinated with the HUGE selection of styles and designs these shoes came in! They have practically any design to match your kids’ personality! Your kids will love showing off their bright, colorful, and stylish Skidders to others!
My daughter got a pair of Brown and Pink Polka Dot Skidders Shoes and loves them! She never really likes to wear socks with her shoes because they are a hassle to put on and can be uncomfortable if not worn right. The easy pull-on design of the Skidders Shoes was perfect for her. She had no problems taking them on and off and appreciated feeling in control. My daughter and I thought the cute girly colors were adorable and really enjoyed the flexibility, stability, and traction that the lightweight soles provided. Another HUGE PLUS that I love…they are machine washable! Talk about mommy & kid-friendly!
Lastly, Skidders has a line of Gripper Socks which cater to women. That’s right, don’t think you are getting left out of the Skidders fun! These socks give women enhanced traction and protection with the soft, rubber grips found on the bottoms. You can choose from a variety of colors and styles to match any preference! I got a pair of the Grey Solid Color-Heather design Gripper Socks. I really liked the cute pink gripper detailing design on the bottom of the socks. They are very comfortable to wear and have finally given me an excuse to throw away the hideous gripper socks I got at the hospital from my son’s birth that I’ve been keeping. I am for sure bringing these comfy and stylish socks to the hospital for all my walking around! For now, they help my unbalanced prego body stay firm in my steps as I travel around on my wood floors!
If you want to keep you and your childrens’ feet comfortable, safe and stylish- you gotta get some Skidders!

  100. My youngest son is nearly 15 months old and we haven't even gotten his 1 year pictures taken yet. At first it was finding the time and the money, and then we were waiting because he kept on falling over getting terrible looking bruises on his forehead! If I won I'd love to get the Firetruck or Crossbones socks, and the Monkey Banana Hybrid Skidders for him.
