We had a padded one, while annoying to clean it had all the other functions we wanted, like the recline, the tray was removable, so we we're able to use it at the dinning table, with both kids we used it as a chair at the table until they we able to use a normal chair, DS just stopped using it, he is 4, we could also adjust the height so we could use it a coffee table height.
So I think come up with a list of features you want, no point buying an expensive one of you don't use half the stuff, because ours was so versatile we got I think 8yrs out of it with 2 kids, and I've just given it to my cousin so it'll be getting some more use soon!

Never said it would cause health problems.
Just said it's quite uncomfortable to have feet dangling. And for an infant who is learning to eat it's not the ideal position. Ask any physio who works with children.
Oh...and yeah stokke are expensive. But for price per use. .and using it for years, plus has footrest that can be adjusted and easy to clean. .worth it for us. But maybe not for everyone.

I guess I've never really thought about the high chair like that. I'd spend a fortune on my kids and I do but my kids were all out of high chairs by 18 months so I didn't see the point.

We have photos of dd asleep in her highchair and rarely sleeps in any position other then cot or car seat so cant be too uncomfortable. Dinner is only a short period so not sitting longer then 15 months. At 20 months can acknowledge is in pain or uncomfortable and will let it be known

People can have different opinions about what works for them. The OP asks for pros and cons. I shared my experience with my DD. And pros of what we used. And that I was really happy with our purchase. That's all. It's okay to have a different opinion.

I've had three high chairs, for cleaning and price I loved my ikea one. I had to buy a padded proper one for my youngest as he had poor core control, but it was horrible to clean and big and cumbersome. We now have stokke high chairs, yes very expensive but my 5 & 3 yo will get years of use out of them and I wish I'd started with them.
If your child has any food/fussy eating issues I would go with the stokke or mocka, I've had two separate speech pathologists (who specialize in feeding) recommend them.
