PlanetShoes-logoI like to make eco-friendly purchasing decisions whenever possible. However, one area where we hadn’t taken that step before was with our shoes.

Since both of the girls had just grown and needed new shoes, I was excited to team up with to review a pair of shoes for each of them. offers a huge variety of shoes for men, women and kids and they even have an Eco Shop.

Zoë chose the Keen Network H2 in Raya Lilac Sachet and Kaylee chose the Geox Jr New Jocker in Pink.

Kaylee is easy to shop for when it comes to shoes. She loves shoes. She likes to change her shoes a few times a day because she loves them so much.

Fall will be here before we know it though, and I’ll need to get her back into closed toe shoes because she’s been rocking sandals and flips all summer.

So, I had her look through the tennis shoes and she loved the Geox Jr New Jocker in Pink, so we went with those.

Zoë is a little more of a challenge when it comes to shoes. They have to fit just right or she won’t wear them. We spent quite a bit of time looking at shoes before she settled on a pair she thought she’d like – the Keen Network H2 shoes.


The first pair of Keen Network H2 shoes we received were a little too tight on her. Thank goodness for the awesome return policy that offers!

They just sent me a shipping label to return that pair. Then we ordered the next size up and they were shipped out promptly. Their policy is convenient and re-assuring when you have a little one that’s tough to shop for.

After walking around in them for a bit, she decided that she did, in fact, like this pair. Whew. She said they’ll be perfect for playing outside at her new school. And I think she’s absolutely right!
