My DS is 14 months and not yet walking. He has never worn shoes up till now but as he is close to walking and will be spending more time outdoors due to the nicer weather I want to get him wearing some shoes. I bought him a pair of sandals but when I put them on him he cries and hits at his feet like I've encased them in cement blocks or something. It gets so bad I end up giving in and taking them off. Has anyone else had this problem? Should I just persist until he gets used to it? Are there any good 'first' shoes I could get him?
