My 2yo is very attached to his shoes. I seem to remember that's something quite common?
Anyway this particular pair of shoes is getting way too small so he needs to move on to the next pair.
I can't get him to put them on. I was successful once and he broke down in tears and hysterics within seconds of wearing them
Any tactics out there?

How about taking him out and letting him help pick a new pair?
Just a thought

I'm sure you've thought of it, but can they be ordered in the next size up?

Second taking him to the shoe shop, DS will only wear shoes that he chooses!

I found that as long as he could see the old shoes he only wanted them. His them and told him we need shoes on or we can't go out - shoes went straight on.

The shoes shop is a good idea. Tricky part is that he needs some adjustment done to them by a podiatrist and not all shoes can have them.
Also his grand mother has already bought him 3 pairs of brand new shoes in the next size up 😏
I'm going to try and hide them tomorrow morning. Will see how that pan out 😁

My dd is very picky over her shoes she is happy to have one pair for everything. I would always have to let her pick them (some werent to my taste) now she is older we negotiate, she lets me buy her two pairs of shoes and she gets a milkshake

I would get rid of the old ones and just do not budge on the fact that he must wear shoes or stay indoors/at home. It might be hard, but he just has to adjust, he can't wear too small shoes, they will damage his feet.

My DS loved his last pair of shoes and would out any others on. They were getting too small so i brought new ones & put the old ones out of sight.
He chucked few tanties over his 'shooz' but gave in
