Toddler shoes 

I am going shopping today for some shoes for the boys but I have no idea of what shoes I need to get. I have done some research on pre walker shoes but I feel like they need much more than pre walkers now. 

I will be going to an actual shoe shop for kids and see what they recommend. I am struggling with babies wearing shoes. I thought that it was better for babies to not wear shoes. 

Although getting their first baby shoes bronzed doesn’t seem to be as popular a practice as it once was, parents always seem eager to get their baby’s first pair of shoes.

Almost too eager, in fact, and way before their baby actually needs them.

Remember that according to the American Academy of Pediatrics, babies don’t actually need to wear shoes until they begin to walk. Shoes are meant to protect your baby’s feet, especially as she begins to walk outside, and don’t help her learn to walk any faster. 

In fact, especially if they aren’t flexible or don’t have non-skid soles, many baby shoes can actually make it harder for your baby to take her first steps.

Soft-Sole Shoes

Many parents look for a soft-sole shoe as the first baby shoes they buy.

Popular brands for crawlers and prewalkers include:

Popular brands for crawlers and prewalkers include:

  • Robeez
  • pediped
  • Stride Rite prewalkers
  • Umi
  • Preschoolians crawlers
  • New Balance
  • Lacoste
  • Jack and Lily leather shoes for infants and toddlers
  • IsaBooties
  • Skechers
  • Vans
  • Merrell
  • Nina Kids

Of course, you could just dress up your baby in a good pair of socks until she is walking. When she is at the cruising and crawling level, soft socks with non-skid soles should work well enough that you don’t necessarily need shoes yet.

If your infant is wearing decorative shoes as part of an outfit, be sure to take them off whenever she begins to cruise around or walk.

First Baby Shoes

Your child will then transition to walker and 

toddler shoes once she is walking well.

I hope this information helps you when trying to figure out when and what shoes to buy for your walking babies.
