hola mommas, my large 16 month old is going to out of his robeez soon, they are already the biggest. what are some of the brands of other softer soled shoes??
I always just feel shoes and try to bend the soles. If they are fairly bendy then they are flexible enough for DD. This may be moot if you do your shopping online but my DD is hard to fit so she has to try on shoes and walk around a little so I can see if they make her trip or lose her balance. Hth, sorry I don't have more solid leads for you
I agree with bendy soles -- I've found Converse and Livie and Luca shoes to be flexible enough for comfortable outside wear.
But if you are looking for truly soft-soled shoes, try Soft Star (softstarshoes.com). Small company, American-made, soft leather shoes for the whole family. We like them a lot.

I've been happy with Skidders and water socks. I like the water socks more than the Skidders, though.

i have fallen in love big time with See Kia Run, just amazing. and you can look around amazon for some sold out styles for cheap too. we just got a few of our favorites from last falls line since we like the brighter bolder winter colors.
one of our twns wears othortics to support his feet while he grows out of ankle pronation so the ortho doc saw his shoes, he raved about them and what a good balence of lateral support and flexible sole they were, he was really impressed. and like has been mentioned they are amazingly cute and super super quality build.
So what if I don't fit cleanly into a defined parenting style, my kids don't fit into a personality archetype either!
