Does anyone here have slippers for their babe that they could not live without?? We have used the Robeez slippers for about 3 months with our ds. I really liked them at first. I loved that they would not slip off ds's feet and that they were easy to put on. Latley I have noticed red marks on my sons ankles when I have taken the slippers off. I was thinking of getting the next size up but now I am wondering if there are slippers out there that any of you find better. Please let me know. Thanks in advance.

The bobux elastic was a little looser and they ran bigger generally I think...but I like the robeez better, personally. anyone else have babes with thicker ankles for comparison.

I think the Robeez are indeed the bomb-diggety. I have a thick-ankled child and I just replaced the elastic with a slightly looser one. Got it from the notions department at the drug store. You can definitely get more wear out them using this method because the elastic will stop fitting them before the slipper itself, at least this has been my experience.

my momma bought my little one some snow babies slippers and i love them! they are easy to slip on and they have a toggle to tighten and loosen as well as the little slip-resistant things on the bottom (my mind isnt working well enogh to remember what they are called right now). plus they make lyllys feet look like tellytubby feet

I absolutely adore Padraig slippers! There multi colored wool upper with a thick sting to tie and the inside is fluffy comfort. The bottoms are no slip leather. These are the best slippers ever! And there the same price as Robeez. Here's a picture from a website:

They sell the quite a few places. Good Luck!
