Ds is outgrowing his current sandals fast. We went to Payless last night and they didn't have anything. they barely had any boy stuff in his size (5.5 to 6). The only things I can find in stores have very stiff soles, which I don't want. I would love Pedipeds, but I cannot afford $30 for shoes. Are there any flexible sandals out there for a good price?

I saw some at A Children's Place with very flexible soles for $5. Target had some good ones by Cherokee that were teva-like and quite flexible for $10.

I was at Wal-mart with dp, and I found the two softest-soled sandals I could. The softest are jelly shoes, and the others are velcro sandals. Dd loves them, but both pairs rub her ankles a little because the upper is kind of stiff.<br><br>
They didn't have croc type shoes her size (4), but my 5 yr old niece has pink crocs and dd (16 mos) LOVES them. The soles are nice and soft...I'd get her some if I could find them.<br><br>
It is so great to have the sandals, though, so I don't have to put on her leather shoes every time she doesn't want to walk barefoot on something.

I second the target purchase. I got some boys sandals for my daughter, and they are very nice (teva like).

If you have a Marshall's near you, check them out! They carry, at times, a great variety of kidlet shoes. And name brand. Also, Ross would be worth checking out. Consignment shops might be worth checking into, or Craigslist.<br><br>
Good luck~<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/treehugger.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Treehugger">:

Did you ask if they had any in the back? My DS (will be 2 in Sept) just grew out of his 6's and I went to payless, too. I got him THE LAST PAIR of sandles in size 7. Phew!

I have horrible luck at Payless. They have three pairs of boy shoes. I found fake crocs at Walmart that ds loves. He will take off the leather ones and put those on now. I am happy that he wears them since he follows his brother around and would get his feet hurt. Most of the time he is barefoot though.

I got these for ds (2yo): <a href="http://www.shoewarehouse.ca/collection/detail.cfm?category=4&subCategory=170&pageNum=1&prodID=14841" target="_blank">http://www.shoewarehouse.ca/collecti...1&prodID=14841</a><br><br>
I *love* them. You can't tell by the picture, but you can literally fold them in half. And while crocs get super slippery when wet, these are fasted so they can't fall off.<br><br>
I got them for about $15, I think, because they were having a b1g1 1/2 off sale.

I love the Lands End children's sandals. DD (almost 3) has worn them the last two summers. I get them at Sears.<br><br>
At the end of the season last summer, I bought 2 pairs for $3.50 each. I had to guess the size, but fortunately, I guessed right.<br><br>
The shoes are really flexible, easy to put on, and have some microbe thing that keeps bacteria out.<br><br>
The regular price is like $17.50.

There's a seperate section of Speedo stuff at Target (ours is in the back with swimming toys, etc)-- AWAY from the shoes-- and they have some pretty flexible sandals for both boys and girls (they're closed over the top and have a velcro strap across the back. I found them after buying my dd the Champion ones from Payless that are the same style but not quite as flexible (why did Target hide them while I was shopping for shoes?!) We haven't tried them on-- some of that style can be too tight for chubby feet (Nike makes some like that) Anyway- I'd check them out and hope that they haven't sold out all the summer stuff already!

we have some from target, too. i got the cutest pair of see kai run sandals, but for some reason my boy refused to even try them on. so back to the store went the 35$ toddler shoes and i picked up a 7$ pair at target and he loves them. the soles are fairly flexible, i wanted something that would hold up on muddy/rocky terrain and they are good so far.

Too bad he isn't a size 5 cause I have a pair of harvey pedipeds.<br><br>
In any case, I did find some amazing pairs of sandles at Gymbo on clearence that were in the bin above their clearance rack. Literally they were as bendable and as similar as the see kai soles that it made me wonder if they were manufactured by the same company.<br><br>
