See Kai Run! Tristan Shoes Review

see kai run logo

See Kai Run® is the idea of Seattle mom, Cause Haun. In 2004, she was on a quest for the perfect first shoe for her son, Kai. Unable to find shoes in fun, sophisticated styles that were suitable for outdoor play and still promoted the healthy development of little feet, she created her own line of shoes that satisfied all these needs.


It is amazing how our children inspire us to do amazing things. Cause Haun, inspired by her son, created See Kai Run so that he might have healthy developmental shoes that were also just as stylish as designer shoes. All See Kai Run shoes, from the soft soled baby booties called Smaller® to larger post-toddler / school age shoes called Kai™, have been awarded the APMA’s prestigious Seal of Acceptance for foot health and functionality. However, I love them because they are really, incredibly, cute.

Judah calls his See Kai Run shoes his Truck Shoes because of the little red truck on the logo. It appears on the box and also on the bottom and inside of the shoes so they’re his “little red truck shoes” and they’re his absolute favorite. We’ve had the shoes for a few weeks now and he still has the box they came in. It’s small details like that that our children love, even as we love the shoes themselves for their stability or design, little ones love the little things that make them personable.

This pair of See Kai Run shoes are called Tristan and they have many great features:

  • Handcrafted from butter-soft leather
  • Flexible rubber sole – healthy for developing feet but sturdy enough for outdoor play!
  • Generous width and wide toe box for plenty of wiggle room!
  • Padded collars for extra comfort
  • Adjustable hook and loop closures make shoes easy to get on and ensure a great fit
  • Breathable leather insole and lining

The handcrafted from butter-soft leather and flexible rubber sole makes them very comfortable for Judah’s feet, especially since he likes to be on his toes a lot. With most shoes I’ve noticed that it tends to be hard on the tips of his toes and I’ve had many problems with his nails because of it. I haven’t had a problem since the first day Judah started wearing the Tristan shoes. They’re soft on his feet, quick to put on and his toes have lots of room against soft leather to wiggle and run on.

Tristan Shoes


My son loves his “little red truck” shoes very much (and the box they came in) and it’s wonderful to have a comfortable pair of shoes with a fantastic design. Our See Kai Run shoes have held up against the climbing, running, falling, kicking and tumbling through the fall leaves, the park gravel and the dirt roads we wander. That’s always a testament to a great pair of shoes. Afterall, See Kai Run was made by a mom for her little boy so I know that they’re going to keep up with mine.

Today is See Kai Run’s Birthday! And they’ve added stylish Organic Socks! Happy Birthday See Kai Run!
