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. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nut.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nut"><br>
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. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Any thoughts/suggestions?<br>
Thanks

I've not had trouble with the preschoolians, but pedoodles are hard for me to get on dd.<br><br>
wider insert might help, dunno!

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!<br>

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...
