Frequently Asked Questions

About See Kai Run

  • Who Is Kai?

Our Shoes

  • What are the different lines available for purchase at
  • See Kai Run offers 3 lines of footwear – Smaller soft-soled crib shoes, sized 0-24 months, See Kai Run first walkers, sizes 3-9, and our Kai collection, shoes for bigger kids in whole and half sizes 8-3y. For details on which shoe is right for you, please see our brand comparison page.
  • Why are baby or toddler shoes with flexible soles better for my child?
  • While pediatricians now agree that barefoot is best for proper foot and muscular development, it is not always practical. Flexible soles are recommended because they are protective for indoor and outdoor wear, yet not restrictive. The soles of Smaller crib shoes are made from soft suede, with non-slip rubber pads for traction. See Kai Run shoes incorporate a very flexible, yet durable rubber for the soles of our first walkers. Both allow plenty of freedom for developing little feet.
  • What is the APMA Seal of Acceptance?
  • The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) is the premier organization of physicians and surgeons who specialize in foot and ankle health. Their Seal of Acceptance certifies that See Kai Run and Smaller footwear meet their rigorous standards for healthy foot development, functionality and safety.
  • How often do new styles come out?
  • We offer a new line of booties, shoes and legwear twice a year. Typically, the spring/summer line launches in February and our fall/winter line is released in August.
  • Are See Kai Run shoes made from genuine leather?
  • Yes! See Kai Run and Smaller uppers are made from buttery-soft leather with breathable leather lining. Only quality materials are used to ensure the soft, flexible, comfortable shoes that are ideal for your child’s feet.
  • Is the leather used in See Kai Run products safe for my child?
  • Yes! See Kai Run cares about the safety of your child and takes great care in ensuring that the leather used for our shoes meets the most stringent available US and international guidelines.

  • How often should you measure your child’s foot for the best fit?
  • Children’s feet grow quickly! Measure at least every two months during the first year, and approximately every three months from 1- 6 years. You can never tell when your child will have a growth spurt.
  • How can I ensure the best fit if I order through
  • Please refer to our comparison page to see which line of shoes is best for you. Once you know which size range is appropriate, refer to our sizing page, which will give you shoe dimensions and measuring tips. Remember to measure your child’s foot often and allow for growing room – ˝ to one centimeter extra is recommended when selecting a shoe size – more if the child will wear socks with the shoes.

  • Yes, we have printable sizing charts for our shoes. You can also view sizing charts for Smaller, See Kai Run and Kai on our sizing page. A direct link to the sizing charts is also available on every product page.

Caring for the shoes

  • Are See Kai Run shoes appropriate for indoor and outdoor wear?
  • Smaller soft-soled crib shoes are ideal for indoor use. Please note that if used outdoors, these crib shoes are not waterproof and should only be used in dry conditions. See Kai Run's sturdy yet flexible rubber soles allow kids to venture outdoors or stay inside. Kai shoes are made with outdoor exploration in mind. Durable soles have superior traction for active kids.
  • Are shoes machine washable?
  • While shoes may hold up in the washing machine, we do not recommend this method for cleaning our leather and sneaker shoes. Runners can be washed in a mesh laundering bag on a gentle cycle with cold water. Use a mild laundry detergent and do not use bleach. Do not put Runners in the drying machine or allow them to dry in direct sunlight.
  • What is the best way to care for sneakers and shoes?
  • The exterior of our leather shoes and sneakers can be sprayed with a non-toxic water repellent for extra protection. To clean our shoes, use a little mild detergent and a damp cloth and allow to air dry. Runners can be cold washed and air dried.
