My little dude isn't walking yet, but he cruises everywhere. He stays barefoot or he wear socks. I don't know what kind of shoes to get him when he does start to walk. I'll keep him barefoot when he's at home, but I'd like shoes for when we're out. I know soft-soled are the best but there seems to be a lot to choose from. Any recommendations would be great. FWIW, we are financially strapped and I absolutely cannot afford to pay $30 for shoes. I was just looking at Pedipeds online and they are about $30 bucks. Anything similiar out there for less money?
