I got my DS a pair of slippers from Clarks when he started cruising. They come in different widths so fit really nicely, have a nice flexible sole and look really comfy. He wears them a lot now he's started toddling. I suppose though he'll be due some proper shoes fairly soon.
Leather padders all the way- they go up to adult sizes so definitely in your DS's size unless he has very unusually large feet for a baby! Delay the first hard soled shoes as long as possible- they really only need them for protection and warmth.
My DS is in Clarks cruiser shoes - lots of people on here don't rate them but i think they're fine - he has time in the day without shoes but i like them on when he's at nursery / we're out and about. We got him measured and fitted at a Clarks in retail park - £14 compared to spend£26 in the normal shops
DS is just starting to walk using furniture to move around. Obviously I've no intention of putting him in shoes indoors, no need for that, but outside he obviously needs shoes. Problem is the pre walker shoes are getting a bit small for him.
Do I look at getting him first proper shoes? Or are there stretchier variations of the baby shoes I can put him in?
