Pediatricians and experts agree that the best shoes for new walkers are no shoes, but that’s not very practical when they’ve got so much terrain to cover. The most important feature in a new walker shoe is a soft flexible sole which will let them grip the ground. A bootie-type shoe is great for indoor walking. On wet surfaces you’re going to want a rubberized sole.
Little Sprouts carries See Kai Run which have soft rubberized soles, Robeez Original which have leather bottoms, and Robeez Mini Shoez which have rubberized bottoms. We will soon be carrying Rileyroos which are soft and flexible with rubberized pads.
