Good walking shoes

Postby babyhelstrup » Wed Apr 27, 2011 3:10 pm

I've heard that good shoes are important for the early part of foot development/ walking. My LO has wide feet. She is a pretty good walker/ runner now. I have been only buying StrideRite shoes. Is there another quality brand?

StrideRite is the best I have heard of for wide feet. They can be expensive.

We have gotten some Keens for DS also. They are often made wide for stability. We generally buy our stuff at consignment or second hand stores, so it depends what we can find. He is in his second pair of Keens though, and we love them. The current ones are sandals. Keens are also expensive though.

Striderite is awesome. They have an outlet near me and they sell on ebay might be worth looking into!

Ohhh did not even think abt ebay! But I am kinda strange abt using used shoes....

We have an outlet also they are not that much less and dont seem to carry a varity of the W shoes or her size... Maybe it iwas just luck. I did find on Shoebuy.com Striderite shoes about $3-$5 less with free shipping. Plus I found a 10% off coupon.... Still puts them at 35 a shoe. I dont even spend that much on my shoes and I will wear them for years not months

See Kai Run. They're awesome! Well made and easy to get on & off. They're pricey, but if you watch, you can get them on sale.

I thought that we were not supposed to use, used shoes because there is already another child's imprint in the cushioning which messes with ...oh I don't know.

We bought Natives for my son as an "early-walker". The soles are super flexible which is fantastic because he still crawls a bit here or there and they have the give he needs but firm enough to help him figure his way out.

I also appreciate that the Natives can get wet (summer!), hose off and be worn basically everywhere.

We've been using Pediped brand shoes. Joey still wears his Pediped Originals for early walkers, but we're about to try the Grip n Go style. They are pretty expensive too, about on par with Striderite prices, but alot of times you can catch a sale and they e-mail coupons too. Once you get up into the styles for older kids they have some that are waterproof and machine washable.
