Re: How long to wear soft soled shoes?

My kids wear soft-soled shoes exclusively until running outdoors on sidewalks for extensive periods of time (usually around 2), then they get 1 pair of VERY flexible thin-soled shoes.

Soft-soled shoes remain the main footwear until at least age 3.

My DD is 4.5 and I still test every shoe for extreme flexibility. If the sole is not light, thin, and VERY flexible, I don't buy it. Yes, I pay more for her shoes, but it's worth it.

I'm going to check out the soft star shoes that are linked above.
