Favorite Baby Shoes for Beginning Walkers

In Fashion by Madison MayberryLeave a Comment

A couple months ago I put out a call on Instagram asking for your favorite baby shoes for beginning walkers. While Truett isn’t *quite* walking yet, he is cruising along on all of the things and just starting to stand on his own, too.

I don’t know why, but with Ainsley and Collins I never found any baby shoes I truly LOVED for those early and pre-walking stages. So! I set out on a quest this summer to find shoes that were truly awesome for baby feet.

Since we are spending a lot of time outdoors and at the park this summer, I needed baby shoes that would stay on, be good for developing feet, and be friendly for those first steps and beyond. Here’s what I found + have been loving…

FAVORITE ALL PURPOSE :: Pediped Originals
Hands down these are my favorite shoes of all that we bought! I had never heard of OR tried Pediped but I’m officially sold. They are made with leather soles that are diamond treated for a little added grip with lots of flexibility for little feet. And their shoes are all certified by the American Podiatric Medical Association for being beneficial for developing feet.

I bought a lot of other baby shoes, but these are the ones that I specifically seek out each day when we head to the park. An added bonus? They are easy to put on and they stay put all day!

Really, these are just THE cutest kids shoes around. I never splurged on a pair of Freshly Picked Moccasins for the girls – I got cheap knock-offs – but now that I have a pair of Freshly Picked I can see what all the fuss is about. They are extremely well made, comfortable and ultimately flexible for beginning walkers, and come in a ton of adorable colors, colors and patterns.

FAVORITE BUDGET CHOICE :: Surprize by Stride Rite
The soles of these shoes aren’t as flexible as other shoes that I mentioned above, so I don’t love them quite as much, but they are well made and easy to put on and a quality shoe for the price.

These shoes are also certified by the American Podiatric Medical Association and are a hybrid of moccasin style meets shoe. Like Freshly Picked, they are also super cute and come in a bunch of fun patterns and styles.
