This Super-Cute Collab Brings ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ To a Favorite Kids’ Shoe Brand

The beloved story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar by renowned author Eric Carle has captivated kiddos for over 50 years, with over 50 million copies sold worldwide — and it was inspired by the simplest of objects: a hole punch.

“One day I was punching holes with a hole puncher into a stack of paper, and I thought of a bookworm and so I created a story called A Week with Willi the Worm,” Carle has stated. When his editor advised him that a green worm would be more well-received, Carle had the idea of making it a caterpillar instead. And, like the hungry protagonist in his most famous book, the story went through a metamorphosis to become the tale we know and love today.

In celebration of this classic, kids’ shoe brand See Kai Run has teamed up with The World of Eric Carle to create possibly the most adorable shoes on the planet. Not only are they super cute, but each pair is specifically designed for kids’ growing and developing feet, and every style is approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA).

Check them out and you’ll agree – these need to be added to your kiddo’s spring footwear lineup ASAP.
