I know there have been tons of posts on soft shoes, and I've gone to many of the sites people have recommended previously, so sorry for yet another shoe post.<br><br>
My daughter is 11 mths old, but running (she's been walking independently for 2 months now, and with assistance for around2-3 mths before that)... she has some Isabooties, and Robeez, but there are times when I would really like to have some shoes with slightly more protection from sharp stuff (like if she stepped on a piece of glass on the sidewalk or something that I didn't see).<br><br>
Is there such thing as the equivalent of double-thick Robeez? Pedipeds seem like they might be what I'm looking for, but I don't want to rush DD into shoes that are developmentally inappropriate. Some sites have their shoes divided up into categories like crawling, walking and running. Would it be ok to put an 11 mth old into shoes in the walking category only? What does running really mean? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

I have love the robeez, up until my 20mo just got 2 pairs of pedipeds a few weeks ago and they are wonderful for going outside! she hasn't worn robeez since! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> I am already planning on getting her another pair too! too bad they don't come in sizes over 18-24months though! (she's in this size currently with lots of room to grow, but you know how that goes <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> )

hmm... we had gotten some Pedoodles and those are super thick!! Soft, but thick! I was sort of hesitant to put such a young LO into shoes with that much sole. Same with See Kai Run. I've never seen SKR shoes IRL, though.<br><br>
The joshoes might be good, since they're exactly two layers of suede, and some foam in between if you like (and the $$ is good). :0

Joshoes, without the foam, are perfect. They have 2 layers of suede in the sole and the leather is much thicker and sturdier than Robeez. The foam will make them a little thicker but I don't think it's necessary. My 4 yr. old has 1 pair with foam and one without and he doesn't notice a difference, they are a tiny bit thicker but the double layer is really plenty. You can add PUL or foam to waterproof the soles, though.

I really like pedipeds. My twins are 10 mo and have a pair of pedipeds and robeez. The pedipeds are better for outside learning to walk.

Pedipeds are really good for outdoor, because they have two layers of leather and a thin layer of foam between them.
