Soft soled toddler shoes

Have just returned from Clarks, very despondent. DS is nearly 3 and has a very slight gross motor delay, so although enthusiastic, lacks skill on his feet. He's just been measured as a 6F and all the shoes Clarks could offer me had very inflexible soles. I pointed out some lovely soft canvas shoes and was told they were for cruising babies... we have a pair at home half a size smaller ffs.

Can anyone recommend somewhere for ergonomic, nice looking soft soled shoes? We do a lot of walking outside so they do still need to be rubber.

Do they no longer do Doodles? Startrite might be worth a try too.

Bobux are great for young children's shoes

Also look at european brands like ricosta

Bobux are brilliant. DS won't wear anything else now.

Ricosta Pepino. So soft! We get them at a local independent shoe shop.
