Last night my girl nail guru Christina Rinaldi (yes moms/ladies she will give you the most relaxing nail experience while pimping your nails out, hit her up!) tagged me in a photo on IG, I click on the photo and I’m like yes they’ve finally launched. I’m referring to the newest kids on the kidswear block, AKID. I have to admit after stumbling onto their Instagram feed during one of my normal hashtag quests a few months back, I immediately clicked that blue button- FOLLOWING (imagine me saying this insanely loud the way Charlie Sheen famously said winning).
First thought my visual taste buds were beyond satisfied. The cutest kids, wearing the cutest shoes and minimal styling which I absolutely love! Then I thought who the heck is behind all this goodness? Little google search yields Matt George & Ashleigh Dempster. Parents check, footwear vets check, stylish check it all made sense. The husband and wife team are no design novices, which was more than evident after I combed the site. There are currently three styles available Anthony, Atticus & Jasper. I’m probably going to lean toward the Anthony, a basic high top avail. in five colorways as my top fav. The Atticus is remniscent of the classic timberland boot but the boot is taken up a notch with the 4 killer color options like zebra. Jasper is a sneaker boot hybrid again next level with 5 color choices including red & gold!
The line ranges from size 4-12, depending on the style and the brand promises a new product launch every 4-6 weeks. They are using quality materials and technology like 100% Natural Premium soft full grain leathers, eva footbeds, lightweight soles and the mandatory feature in a kids shoe -wait for it- THE SIDE ZIP. Tell me you can not relate when your kid goes to the dark side because they can not get their shoe off, yes lol! I am so sold on this line but I’m going to give you one last tidbit of info. to set your day off, the price points are perfect for the quality offered. So let’s all give AKID a warm welcome to the world of kids fashion, cheers!
