Re: What brand of shoes do you prefer for your toddler?
I used to put crocs type shoes on my daughter but after seeing a 20/20 piece on the dangers of them, especially in situations such as escalators (they get caught in the sides or at the top and cut and could rip off toes!)
My personal fave that I've had on my daughter is Sketchers. I wear Sketchers myself, but I like the Sketchers because they have the elastic on the tongue that is loose enough that she can pull her tennis shoes on by herself, but snug enough that her feet don't slide around. They're also the only brand of shoes that hold up to her abuse!
