just got ds his first pair yesterday and they are super cute but holy cow, I worked up a serious sweat trying to get them on.

Anybody have this problem. I got him the running/jumping line, measured like they said and he was sized at 5 1/2 inches which made him a size 22. The only thing I did not try yet was the wider insert. His ankles are pretty chubby but the new shoes did not leave marks around his ankles, once I got them on anyway.


Any thoughts/suggestions?
Thanks

I don't know if this will help your son but I had trouble getting them on one of my twins (the other was fine). I spread the top elastic (ankle part) while I am putting them on his feet and it works...I don't know why but I hope it does for you as well.

You can also try rolling up adult socks into a ball and stuffing them into the shoes. This will stretch out the opening. I had the same problem with a pair of preschoolians that had sport laces. The owner of the company suggested this technique. It worked for me. Good Luck!

It just took me a few days to come up with a "technique" to get them on!! I have to do it from in front of DD and stretch the opening as I do so...
