For my 13 mo DD we have Robeez. She's not walking yet and they are super flexible, almost like a really tough sock

When she starts walking and the weather is warmer I think we'll go to See Kai Run.

DS also wears Robeez... well, the ones we bought at Target. They don't seem quite as slip-proof but work well outside. He's been walking a little over a month. They are fine for outside, too. We plan on using these or similar (maybe pedipeds?) until he's muuuch older... since he just falls on his face with his specially-fitted, stage 2 Stride Rites (the soles are still a little too hard, and he also trips b/c they are rubber not leather and they "stick" when he takes a step... hard to explain).

the best price for the soft shoes is probably target. i think they're around $12. and they have some really cute ones. dd loved her soft shoes.
we also got her some knock-off crocks at payless for around $12 for running around in muddy areas or wading through the creek. she loved these cuz she could easily put them on and take them off and i think they were really comfy on her feet. she picks what shoes she wants to wear and she always chose the crocks.

our son wore bobux until he could walk and then we got him some pedipeds. I love the pedipeds because they still have a soft sole so it's easier to walk in, but it's not so soft where I'm worried about him walking on rocks and the like, ykwim? I think once the weather warms up we'll get him some crocks too.

Pedipeds rock! And they just released their larger size line. Endless.com carries them and they have $-5 overnight shipping sometimes (they pay you $5 to ship it overnight

We love Pedipeds too. But ds had gotten too big for the Originals so I just got him a pair of Flex and I them. You can see them here. The only place you can order the Flex right now is from their website but I am sure that will change.

My ds loves his Livie and Luca elephant shoes. I can't say enough good things about them.

Pedipeds when he was first learning to walk, then See Kai Run once he was really booking it, and now we have SKR, Keen, Stride Rite. He likes all of them, although he likes the look of his Keen sandals and the way they have a little elastic thing on the top to tug on.

ebay tends to have some great deals on used shoes if you are willing to wait

Robeez, Pedipeds, and StrideRites. First we start with the Robeez, then Pedipeds for a little more support. Something with a solid bottom is needed around here with the rainy weather as well. We also get shoes from Target.

www.softstarshoes.com makes WONDERFUL toddler and childrens shoes of many styles. I have bought 3 pairs from them-two moccasins and one pair of regular shoes. The regular shoes are very soft and bend right in half. This is a great company with a good goal in mind-the environment. They sell leather and vegan as well.

Joyful mama of 3.

My dd's feet are very wide. See Kai Run are the only shoes that fit. She finds them very comfortable. Here's a link http://www.seekairun.com/index.html . It seems you can order direct now. Ebay might be a little cheaper.
