Bugaboo shoes: review and giveaway

Two more weeks and Spring finally starts, I'm so ready for more sun and warmer days!! Apparently we're going to have some snow tomorrow!
I had the opportunity to review a pair of Bugaboo shoes. I have to admit I had a very hard time deciding which pair to choose, but ultimately I chose the yellow Lola Lu, perfect for Spring and Summer.
  

I just love everything about this shoe. It's a soft yellow color with stylish stitching on the front of the shoe.  I love the contrast of the red flower on top and I know you can't really see it very well on this picture, but the middle of the flower has a little sparkle on it. They are made from cowhide leather with extra cushion on the heal (no blisters for Abby!) and a pliable rubber sole, so the shoe just moves naturally with Abby's feet. 
Even the bottom of the shoe is fun and vibrant! I love the hearts!


Some more info on Bugaboo:
Bugaboo Shoe Company was formed after their first daughter's adoption. Searching for quality leather toddler and children's shoes that were unique, stylish, and affordable was exhausting. Many children's shoes that were reasonably priced were made out of man made materials and caused our daughters feet to sweat excessively; while other shoes offered little to no flexibility to the extent that our daughter refused to walk while wearing them. Since we live in the Midwest, we also wanted the sole of the shoe to be made from a rubber which provided traction, pliable enough to bend and could be worn during all seasons. Thus Bugaboo Shoe Company was formed. Everything that we wanted and could not find made the foundation for Bugaboo shoes; quality leather, pliable rubber sole, style and flair, all at a reasonable price. We hope you love your Bugaboos too.

Quality leather, ultra comfort and style, all at an affordable price; this is Bugaboo Shoe Company promise.
We pride ourselves on making developmentally supportive shoes with the following:

1. All of our shoes are made from breathable lambskin or cowhide leather and lined with pigskin leather.
2. All of our shoes have a pliable rubber sole; so the shoe moves with the natural motion of little feet.
3. All of our shoes have additional cushion around the heal, no need to worry about blisters or rubbing.
4. All of our shoes are light weight, easy for new walkers and runners to maneuver in.
5. All of our shoes have Velcro closer to properly secure each individual child's foot.
6. Our toddler shoes have hand sewn soles so they will not split when children are learning to walk.
7. All of our shoes are adorable.

Compared with the pre-walkers and walking shoes currently available in the marketplace, Bugaboo Shoe Company offers the softest lambskin and calfskin leather shoes allowing tiny feet to breathe freely while supplying ultimate flexibility; both necessities for developing healthy feet. Bugaboo shoes offer complete protection to precious feet with a pliable rubber sole and a strong velcro strap.

The Bugaboo Shoe Co. carries both boys and girls shoes ranging from size 3 to size 12, depending on the style you choose. Their shoes come in two different size categories: toddler's and children's. The difference you ask? 
The toddler shoes are made of the softest lambskin leather and have an amazing pliable rubber sole. Compared with the children's shoes they have a wide width for the complete natural movement of the foot, similar to walking barefoot which is recommended by many pediatricians. Their children's shoes are made of calfskin leather and have an amazing traction bottom. 

Here are some examples of girls and boys styles:
