    Default First shoes for 15 month old boy


    Hi, as the title states, can anyone recommend good winter shoes for a 15 month old boy? He is starting to walk so something appropriate. I have no idea and I have been encouraging bare foot walking or socks if its cold. Brands and stores to purchase would be helpful.
    TIA

    When dd was first walking I found soft soled skate brand shoes fitted best. She mostly wore DC and Vans.

    The best shoes our DS has had is a pair of Vans.

    We've purchased more Vans in the next two sizes up for him.

    You can source them at surf or skate shops, or online.

    I bought my son red shoes from Target. They've got a fire department theme, and letters (grip) on the soles. They were only $15. They were a little heavier than what he was used to, but he very quickly got used to them. And buying them from Target was handy, cos he lost one while we were on holidays and I was able to easily buy a replacement pair.

    They are easy to get on, and he only spent a day or two pulling them off (velcro) before getting bored with it. I bought them in size four when he was about 13months old, and they still fit at 16months.
