Question What brand of shoes do you prefer for your toddler?

I loved the soft pedipeds, but they are no longer big enough.. I really would like to get a good sturdy pair for him to wear a while, through the fall/winter/and hopefully spring next year.. I thought about stride rites, keds, Nike, Reeboks etc.. but would like some opinions! TIA..

Vans are what have fit best on both of my boys. they have super duper wide feet and my 2yo will undo velcro so has to have laces. that doesn't leave me with a lot of choices.

I am so glad to hear this! I found my LO a pair of Vans ankle highs at a thrift store for $3 and put them away for when he can fit them (they are size 5.5 baby)

Ecco all the way. They are very lightweight and flexible but supportive for walking. Held up great and resale is fantastic.

Re: What brand of shoes do you prefer for your toddler?

I usually buy Stride Rite, but recently I bought a pair of Robeez tredz, and 2 pair of Pediped Flex (they were on a really good sale), and I love them both! They're nice and flexible like the original Robeez, and Pedipeds, but they have a sole so they're durable enough for a very active toddler. My DD seems to be very comfortable in them both, and they're holding up great.
