Mommies! I need some baby shoe help!

Its been awhile since I have bought baby shoes! I know that their first pair of walking shoes is important to help promote a good foot pattern, or some shenanigans like that! Back in the day Stride Rite made a natural motion system that was for new walkers.

So help me! Good brands to start looking for!
Thanks!

i bought Stride Rite shoes for them, but they wear them only for parties or when they have to wear shoes.

i suck, sorry.

I've seen Robeez for good prices at Marshalls. Pedipeds are also supposed to be good. We don't have the actual thing, but got some knock offs from Target.

The baby Pedipeds are awesome...they are like slippers and so cute. they have a soft bottom that conforms to their foot bed to make it as close to being bare foot as possible. My daughter is 3 and still fits into the 18-24 months and she loves them. It's the only shoe she likes to wear. They can be worn outside too.

I've bought DD Robeez, Pediped and Striderite and the only ones she'll keep on her feet are the Pedipeds.

Robeez for sure! I love all the baby shoes that are fancy but they can't walk in them!

i'm not a mommy but I always buy all the shoes of my nephew, I tried a lot of brands
I suggest:
-Pediped
-Tommy Hillfiger have some awesome baby sandals and shoes
-If you want something different try minetonka baby moccasins
-And Vincent shoes (european brand)

Robeez for sure but I know you already know about those Kara.

I really liked See Kai Run shoes for Trey when he was an itty bitty guy. http://www.seekairun.com/ They sell 'em down at the baby store on 5th St just down from 5th St Public Market. I can't think of the name right now.

WHen Nicholas was learning to walk, and still crawling, etc I loved Pedipeds!! So cute, esp for boys. He has some robeez too but i like them better for girls. I tried a few knockoffs and quite honestly they were a waste of money, they didn't stay on his feet. I would maybe invest in 1 pair of quality pre-walkers like Robeezo or Pedipeds.

Then when we was full on walking but still quite clumsy I did buy his first pair of true walkers (sandals cause it was summer) at Stride ride. When he got really stable I moved on to cheap shoes LOL.

My son was barefoot most of the time too!!

But when he did need shoes for going out, he had a pair of see kai run and weebit shoes made by Simple.

The weebit shoe is made of natural hemp if I remember correctly and come in a variety of colors. I bought mine at Foods for the Family but Amazon currently has them.

You will like them

My DD had some Robeez, cute little Vans crib shoes & some adorable baby Uggs. Her feet are wide, so most shoes don't work for her. When she really started walking I started buying her Stride Rite. She usually rotates between these and her Crocs.

I absolutely LOVE Umi shoes for my DS. They're heavyweight enough to protect his feet, but flexible too. I like this style in particular: http://www.endless.com/dp/B001CSZX4C...SIN=B001CSZX4C

Haha, me too. I think it helps their little feet to find balance easier. I really like these Puma's too because they are more like slippers and very flexible, they STAY ON (big plus), they are easy to put on, and provide a little protection.

They make all sorts of different colors, but you just have to look around a bit.

Oh, and I do agree with the above recommendations for PediPed and Umi. My daughter had a few pairs and they have nice flexible soles. PediPed also has a double cushion footbed liner of which one can be taken out to extend wear as the foot grows or use both for narrow feet.
