When the folks at Polliwalks sent me some samples of their latest kids shoes, I at first was not sure how they were different from Crocs, but I quickly noticed that all of their shoes come with the front in the shape of a duck, alligator, frog, or lady bug. These plastic clogs are great; my kids were pretty excited that their shoe had an animal “face” and to discover that their new shoes incorporated animal tracks into the treads. They has a lot of fun at the beach trekking around in the sand just so they could make their own prints! Developed by a couple living in Newburyport, the small 5 person team has managed to create a product that’s fun and unique. Poliwalks are great for the summer as they’re waterproof, clean easily in the washing machine, and the soft foam allows for an easy slip on or off. I also like Polliwalks environmental focus, in the production of the shoe, no material is wasted and excess plastics are used in other parts of the shoe. I would definitely recommend Polliwalks to any parent with kids up to 12, they make a fun, practical gift.
