Shoe advice for crawling baby

DD (10 months) is about to start nursery and has just learnt to crawl. She had her first visit today and was crawling around outside both on concrete and play mats. The nursery assistant noticed that she had bare feet (she pulled her socks off immediately, as usual) and suggested that we get her some soft shoes, both to protect her feet and for if it's cold out.

Do we need to get her 'proper' shoes yet, or would something like this do?

Don't buy proper shoes until she has been walking a couple of weeks. That is what my cousin told us, she is a trained childrens shoe fitter.

I would go for the wee soft shoes, Robeez I think they are called.

I found that our DC found them harder to take off than other shoes.

Try Daisyroots!
They are leather & breathable, but much more important is the fact that they are impossible for a small child to pull off grin. DD was 4 years old before she could get hers off & we continued to use them until she outgrew their size chart- perfect.

I think she'd probably try and pull those off too tbh... Generally leave off shoes for as long as poss. Think DS had a pair of soft leather shoes (shoo shoos are nice but pricey as hanaflower says) when he went to his CM at 1 yr, but only worn outside I think...

Shoo shoos are also good, like leather bootees really but tough enough to protect feet.

I found a website once that did them cheap...will see if I can find it again...

Bobux are another good brand of soft leather slipper. The shoes you linked to are very unlikely to stay on.

Looks like we've all found the same kind of thing, just in different places grin
They really do work don't they!

Thanks for the replies everyone! Can't believe the prices of some of these shock but I suppose it's better to spend a bit extra if the cheap ones will get yanked off every five minutes...
