Who makes the best shoes for fat feet? Robeeze cut off her circulation. She can pull the off the cheapies from Target. I would like to find some in a mary-jane style with funky colors. TIA.

ETA: She is starting to stand and cruising is just around the corner.

They are pricey, but Soft Star Shoes worked great for my daughter's fat little feet.

Oh, those are cute and definitely pricey. But if they fit and stay on it will be a good investment.

I like pedipeds. We used shoshoes with my DS but my DD takes those out no problem. I love pedipeds. They are a bit more firm than robeezz but very well made and flexible.

Isabooties work wonders on our kicker. I have friends that report they are the only thing that keep their little one's sock on! Similar to Robeez but animal-friendly and 'softer'. Our son has chubby legs and the elastic doesn 't bother him.

I LOVE pedipeds (their little girl shoes have me hankering for a daughter next time around) Check Amazon for some pretty good prices (some styles for around $16 last I checked)

We love ShooShoes They work wonderfully on DD's chubby feet and she doesn't seem to mind them at all. They are good quality shoes and she can't get them off.

See Kai Run are super.

Not Mary Janes, but really comfy alternative to baby shoes are the Swedish Moccasins, either at Hana Andersson or Nowali. Sometimes you can find new ones on ebay...

My little guy's feet are so fat, none of the mainstream shoes fit him.
But I found someone on Etsy (Soulbaby) who makes them custom to your LO's measurements, and the fit is incredible! And they stay on like the were superglued!

Life with a toddler: it's not so much the volume, it's the pitch!

Bobux, Shoo Shoos or See Kai Run

Bobux are very similar to Robeez but have a MUCH more forgiving elastic design, so they seem to fit much looser around the ankles, even on "average" ankles. But also note that the maryjane style will fit differently than the "regular" soft shoes.

These are what we use and we LOVE them! We have 3 pairs and Lizzie has never tried to take them off, she's 9 months and just starting to cruise

I am in love with LL Bean's soft soled shoes. Some styles were on sale after Xmas for $9.95 from $19.95. I stocked up! The lobsters are out fave at the moment. LOL She has yet to figure out how to pull them off too.

I got a pair of leather and seude-soled booties from LL Bean for $20 (ten on sale, actually) which I like a lot. They are a little big for her now, but will be good for spring and (occassionally) summer.

Jack & Lily is another good brand that stay on my DD's fat little feet.
