Shoes for new walkers

DD has been walking a little while and wants to walk when playing outside but its still snowy and cold here and I can't find anything to suit the job. She is a size 2 to 3 but I can't get boots that small to fit over here ankles, or actually get her foot into them as her feet are still baby 'club' shaped. Bigger boots just slip off, trainers just get soaked.

At the minute we use thicker plastic bags over several pairs of woolen socks and a snowsuit pulled down to protect the top of the foot/bag. This has been fine for crawling but I don't think will last for walking.

Is there another solution I'm missing?

There are some booties made out of snowsuit material I've seen - hang on and I'll try to find them. They open up like a bag then have a toggle to tighten at the ankle iirc.

Size 3 wellies plus tights and socks? Primark and most supermarkets have wellies in a 3
