Best Toddler Shoes???

My lil girl just turned 15mth and has started walking, still wobbly but she gets up after each fall and keeps going.
What is the BEST kind of shoes out there?
I tried pedi-ped soft soles....its not bad but i dont know if she's getting enough support.
My MIL thinks she needs something with thicker soles.
Has anyone tried puddlejumpers?
I need to find shoes that are comfortable and support my lil

  • Stride Rite makes the BEST walking shoes out there. Most of the parents I know buy those for their LO's.

  • Pediped were all that Ava wore when she started walking at 9 months. She even wore them outdoors on hard surfaces and she seemed to be really supported. Stride rite makes really nice shoes as well and has a lower end brand sold at Kohls and some other stores that is a little less expensive, (I think Munchkins??) which is nice.

    Puddle Jumpers are a lot like the toddler harder-soled Pedipeds and very nice as well! :)

  • Soft flexible soles like pediped are the best thing right now. Actually bare foot is the best, but when she can't be barefoot any of the soft leather shoes work great. I got mine at Target or Babies-r-us for a lot cheaper then most of the ones online. There are also many free patterns online if you sew at all. You can get small scraps of fabric or reclaim clothes that no longer fit or are worn out or buy some at the thrift stores for cheap and make your own.
