I need some soft soled shoes for my DD that are narrow...any suggestions?

I bought my DD a pair of pedipeds the other day. I was SO excited to get them...they are adorable!! I tried them on her, and they are perfect in the length, but I can fit my finger in the side of her shoe because they are so wide on her. So now I have to return them and start the search all over again. I SOO wanted to keep them because they are so stinkin cute! I have one pair of shoes from Target that fit well, but everything else I have tried have been too wide. Are See Kai Run shoes wide as well?? I really need a nice pair of shoes for summer (preferably sandals) that she can well with her play and sun dresses. Anybody have a DD with narrow feet that could help me out?? Thanks!!!

eta- Is it bad that they are a little wide? They stay on her feet because of the velcro strap, but I've been told that if they are too wide they have trouble walking. She is just starting to try to walk on her own, so I definately don't want to make things harder. What's the proper way they should fit when they are first learning how to walk?

SKR shoes are very wide. DD went through a period of time (9-12 months) where her feet were long, but pretty wide, so SKRs worked perfectly then. But once they narrowed out a lot, the shoes just fell off, even though we'd fasten them as tight as they could get.

My daughter is 20.5 months old and wears a size 7.5-8 narrow, but in certain brands can get away with a regular width (Skechers are pretty good, so are Buster Brown and Stride Rite). She can't wear your "typical" baby-type shoe, because her feet are just too skinny and long.

Have you tried Preschoolians? Those are quite narrow.

My daughter has narrow feet. I got some skr and they literally fell off of her feet. I buy all of her shoes from an online store called TINY SOLES. They are good at guiding you about the diff. shoes. The only ones that really work well for Caroline are ROBEEZ TREDZ. They are narrow.

I second Robeez Tredz. They run quite narrow, hold up well, are very flexible in the sole.

Soft Star custom makes shoes in the US...can be pricey, but they are great shoes!

What about leather soft-soled shoes like Robeez? Target has a cheaper brand of them as well. They fit my DD who has wide/thick feet, but also the little girl I nanny, who has very slender feet.

Thanks so much! I think I will try some of the Robeez Tredz and see how they work.

Stride Rite does narrow. They are worth the high price, IMO. DD's have worn like iron. The prewalker shoes are great too.
