Running Bear is the brainchild of advocate and mother Lisa K who is the wife of South African pop star Danny K. She has a love and affinity for shoes and children so this proved to be the perfect marriage of both.
The brand was hugely inspired by Lisa’s very personal experience with her first, born son Jayden. She struggled to find a shoe that was stylish, comfortable and functional while still benefitting his development. This resulted in the creation of the Running Bear Moccasins. Running Bear Moccasins are designed with love and care by Lisa herself always with the objective of keeping your little one’s precious feet in mind. The elastic opening makes the moccasins easy to put on and take off and most importantly they stay on! These fashionable, soft leather moccasins imitate barefoot walking and help strengthen their muscles and ligaments. They are handmade with the highest quality leather, sourced internationally. They are durable and are suitable for both pre-walkers and toddlers alike. They are crafted in such a way that encourages the natural development of your child’s growing feet without inhibiting them.
The range is fun, cool and playful with a contemporary bohemian undertone that will undoubtedly make your child stand out from the crowd.
Every pair of moccasins comes with a complimentary, personalized book called The Story of Running Bear, dreamed up by Lisa herself. The book makes for perfect night time reading and will have your little one looking forward to putting on their Running Bear Moccasins every day.
The attention to detail and personal touch is what makes this brand feel really special. “I care deeply about creating a product that I would be proud of my child wearing. No corners were cut in creating a shoe of the highest quality,” says Lisa. Running Bear Moccasins are affordable, stylish, functional and funky.
