Vivo Kids Shoe First Impression Review

Vivo Kids Shoe First Impression Review

I don’t know about your kids but mine LOVE being barefoot, I’m scrubbing red dirt from the carpet on a daily basis!

You should be able to spread your toes apart in shoes but every shoe I have owned does not have that kind of toe space. So, I recently…
