Thanks to our ikiki shoes leaving the house has been fun, simple, and extra comfortable. We finally have shoes that are easy to put on, made for developing walking feet, and inspire my independent free spirited children. So when we saw they were releasing new friends we knew we needed to add them to our ikiki zoo!

This spring ikiki released a new friend Leo Longfire.

The moment my son saw Leo’s lime green skin with cool spikes he was ready to take him on an adventure.


Leo’s ikiki Adventure

On a bright sunny day Leo heard a cry for help from his home of iron and rock. 

As he listened closer he recognized it was Princess Patty Potamus!

She needed help!

Leo quickly jumped into action to save his precious friend.

With high tops, breathable skin, and durable soles he knew nothing could stop him on his voyage! 

Leo quickly suited up and tightened his velcro.

Then with an ikiki battle cry, he began his quest to save Princess Patty.

With strong ankle support he charged up the green mountain towards the magic castle. 

With every squeak he knew he was one step closer to seeing Princess Patty’s glittering soles! 

When he arrived to the castle he spotted Princess Patty!

She was squeaking for help from the top of the castle’s tallest tower.

But the castle was full of challenges and obstacles to trip Leo up!

First Leo turned off his squeakers in order to not attract any bad guys.

He quietly descended the steep shoot without leaving a trace of evidence by using his white nonskid bottoms. 

Then with his breathable skin, Leo kept cool while crossing the firey lake of lava.  

With durable rubber soles Leo conquered each step up Slipper Slope Mountain.

At last he met his final obstacle!

With flexibility Leo grasped each stone rung to climb the giant beanstalk.

Princess Patty was saved!

Princess Patty and Leo were finally reunited to make the perfect ikiki pair! 

The End

We hope we’ve inspired you to find your little one their ikiki solemate and take them on a wild adventure!

  1. (OUR NEW FRIEND LEO) I checked out their site with all the different style of shoes that they have and I liked a lot of them that I would pick out for my grandson to wear.

  2. These look like fun desigms that my great nephew would like for his shoes! 🙂

  3. These shoes are such a cool idea! Another way for kids to imagine and play while being warm and safe!

  4. Those shoes are the cutest! They have such adorable animal characters.

  5. That has to be one of the most adorable, fun and creative ways to review/describe the features and benefits of a pair of shoes I have yet to read and you managed to do it while still explaining features like rubber soles, breathable skin, squeakers that turn on and off and more! This brand has so many adorable characters and colors and styles and I wish I could get at least several for our little grandson, especially since he crazy loves ALL animals just like Me/Gramma and his PopPop.

  6. Made me smile “First Leo turned off his squeakers”. I can say it would be nice to know where they are by sound. But I can see my great niece discovering how to turn them on and off. Zayada is almost 2 and she wants to do everything.

  7. These shoes are too cute and I love how they have an on/off switch for the squeaker! Great idea!
