Fashionable Twinkle Toes Winter Boots for Girls by Skechers {Giveaway} | 2014 Holiday Gift Guide

Disclosure: I received the following boots from Skechers at no cost to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own and were not influenced. 

Today is the last day of our Holiday Gift Guide event, and today we are featuring SKECHERS and their girl's boots, specifically the Twinkle Toes line! When browsing SKECHERS' selection of Twinkle Toes boots, it was really hard to narrow down which pair my daughter wanted...just like most girls, she wanted them all! We finally narrowed it down to one pair and needless to say, my daughter was super excited when her new boots arrived at our home for more than several reasons. For one- they are adorable! Two- they light up, three- they have pom poms (yay!), and four- they are going to keep her feet warm! Okay so maybe reason number four keeps mom more happy, but still!

Here are the beauties, the cuties, the Booties!!!

Girls' Twinkle Toes: Glamslam - Runaway Dreamer Slip-On Boots:

Give her some warm fuzzy fun with the SKECHERS Twinkle Toes: Glamslam - Runaway Dreamer boot. Soft suede-textured fabric and sweater knit fabric upper in a slip on mid calf light up cool weather casual boot with sequin accents (adapted from
As you can see, this boot has a sweater shaft. My daughter has never had a boot like this, so I think she was all the more excited when she saw it for the first time! There are so many great and vibrant colors, plus patterns and prints on this sweater fabric, totally fun for any little girl! This boot also has a upper soft suede-textured microfiber fabric and a faux fur collar trim.

Once my daughter put on her new boots and she started walking around she immediately started shouting for me. "Mom, mom, hurry come look"!  I rushed over thinking she fell or something went wrong, only to see that her boots were lighting up and she was grinning like it was Christmas morning. I had forgotten to tell her about the little Twinkle Toe magic in these boots, which gave her a big surprise! I do not have the best picture shown above on the right, but when my daughter walks the "snowflake" (I'll call it) lights up! Super fun!

Overall, these boots are very adorable and cute! They are definitely going to keep my little girl's feet warm all winter long, all while in fashion! The only thing I wish is that the poms poms were on more securely. My toddler son ripped off a pom pom and I have had to sewn it back on already which is not a boot flaw, just something to be cautious of.

Overall, I do recommend this boot and can say that my daughter loves wearing them, and is comfortable while wearing them!
