I've been looking at See Kai Run shoes for my 13 mo DD and was wondering what other momma's had to say about them or other brands!<br><br>
Right now, DD is wearing soft soles and we're needing to find a better alternative with summer coming and more outside time.<br>
Thanks!

We swear by our SKR's. Love love love them. Even the ones DS outgrew look pretty amazing and the kiddo is hard on his shoes!!

I love how they look, but I will not be buying another pair. I don't like how the tounge always slides down uncomfortably in the shoe, & also my son (who is an excellent walker) often trips on the rubber that sticks out beyond the toe.

We've never had either of those problems and we have 3 different pairs of SKR's.

Great for fat feet. My dd wears 3.5XW and the size 3 SKR shoes fit her perfectly.

I love the way they look, and my dd has no problem walking in them, but a bit of the stitching has started to come loose on the top, from her crawling in them on pavement. That said, I'll still probably stick with them in the future

We love our SKR. My DD and DS2 both have a pair. They are sooo cute, they walk great in them, and they arent too badly priced... I figure Stride Rites are more expensive and no where near as flexible...

We loved them when ds was just starting to walk and wanted more than a leather sole. They are very flexible and were easy to get on.

SKR are by far the best option out there when moving from complete soft soles. Dh and I are total "shoe" people, <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> and we have tried them all. We haven't had any problems like the previous op mentioned and we have gone through a few pairs now...sandals, sneaker, fall shoes, and winter boots. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug"> If you want some good trippable shoes, try crocs. Those things are miserable, and even I trip up in them. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br><br>
The best place to get SKR, I think, is DandelionBaby.com. You can usually find a coupon code for them as well. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> (10% off w/coupon code "momfinds") and $5.95 flat rate shipping.

We had one pair. They are fine for early walkers. I think we had a fair amount of tripping.<br><br>
My friends all had them too. I think we would all agree that they came off very easily. They do not offer good traction. It really depends on how active your kid is. I would not buy another pair.<br><br>
I would go to a good kids shoe store and try on all the option. I recommend closed toe for summer.

loved ours, thought DS walked better in them than barefoot, just wish I'd found them sooner (his feet were too wide for Robeez-type shoes).

We love them, too! My guy has a cute little pair of the sneaker-ish ones. I want to get him a pair of the closed-toe sandals for summer.<br><br>
They are perfect. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

Very cute, nice flexible sole but are best for toddlers with chubby feet.<br><br>
We ended up spending a little more $$ and getting Ecco's for dd's early walking phase; we just couldn't beat those shoes/sandals for wear. Got our money's worth! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
