Re: What does a 1 year old/young toddler need?
Does he walk? I would go to a reputable shoe place and get his foot measured, then choose a sturdy and well-made shoe endorsed by the American Podiatry Association (or whatever they are called, the boxes have stickers on them). Stride Rite is a good brand.
