Keens are practically indestructible. I have three boys and the Keens are always still good enough to pass down several times.

Re: What shoes does your 3 yo son wear

DS is 13 now, but when he was 3 he only wore Stride Rite shoes. He was a very active boy (he's a lazy teenager now lol) and all of his shoes lasted and were in good enough condition to pass on to my friend who is using them right now.

I buy my 3 yo DS stride rite as well. He has very wide feet and their wides fit well. He also has a pair of crocs that used to be ODD's and they have held up to a serious beating

Keens. My 4 year old daughter has been wearing her Keens for ... I think almost a year, wow. Anyway, I will definitely be able to pass them down to her brother. They look like they've hardly been worn, but I know what they've been through.

Re: What shoes does your 3 yo son wear

If DS is playing hard outside he is mostly in his rain boots. We have two pair bc he is always getting a pair wet. We love mud puddles and the hose! He has stride rites that are super easy to put on and for a while he was just wearing skidders but I can't find them big enough. We will probably go from rain boots to winter boots here as I like his feet protected.

Yep, DS had to wear extra wide shoes, and Stride Rite were the only ones that fit him correctly. Thankfully his feet have narrowed a bit as he has grown, so he can wear "normal" shoes now.

I also love Keens. I have a few different pairs of them, DH has the sandals, and DS used to wear their shoes and sandals as he was growing out of the need for extra wide shoes.

Re: What shoes does your 3 yo son wear

Tharen wore soft soles until he was about 3 and then went into DC and Osiris sneakers because they are the only sneakers that fit his super wide feet. Kearnan wore Converse All Stars. I love Converse sneakers and prefer to wear them myself. If I could figure out how to get them to fit Tharen that is what I would buy for him. They have flexible soles and come up over the toe. Kearnan wore a pair for 2 years and didn't wear them out.
