Help with finding shoes for a chubby foot.

My little boy has chubby little feet and I'd like to find some flexible soled shoe. He is 15 mos and will be in a size 7. Any ideas where to look or what shoe might work?

Re: Help with finding shoes for a chubby foot.

My guys have chubby feet too - they're starting to slim down finally though. We have Robeez and JoShoes soft soled shoes, New Balance running shoes (look at Joe's New Balance Outlet for deals), and Stride Rite dress shoes (very flexible soles). NB and SR come in wide and extra-wide widths and fit my guys really well.

I was going to suggest the Stride Rite shoes. Fairly pricey, I know, but they are excellent shoes and they have the widths for probably every foot, from regular to super extra wide.

Thanks. I had some soft soled (wiggees) and they were stretched around the ankle so far they made marks on his ankles. So then I bought some cute very flexible carter's shoes but he outgrew those so fast they are barely broke in.

That's what I was going to say. And any soft soled leather shoe will fit well.

Another vote for See Kai Run or Pedipeds (and endless.com usually has negative $5 overnight shipping and they carry pedipeds).

I just measured his foot for a pair of Pedipeds and it is too big. I printed out their sizing chart and his toes go above the XL mark. Any other ideas?
