  • My son started when he learned how to walk and always when he was outside.

  • I don't think any child should wear shoes all the time...all my kids run around outside with bare feet. but when we are going out or something they wear shoes. I would say shoes become important when they learn to walk.

  • 24/7? Never. I think by age two they should be wearing them most of the time.

  • My daughter is 16 months old and only wears shoes if we go out of the house like for a walk or to the store. When we are inside, she is barefoot just like us. I had never heard they should wear them all the time.

  • I didnt think they were supposed to wear them 24/7. Mine never did. I will put shoes on them when we go outside sometimes, but not inside.

  • I bought mine shoes when they started walking. I think it's good for them to be barefoot sometimes. So they don't always have them on.

  • mine wear them if we're going somewhere and outside in the winter time,sumer they run around outside barefoot. in the house they go barefoot too I've never heard about keeping them on all the time either.

  • Only when they start to walk a lot. What's the point otherwise? Mine does not wear them in the house. I don't like shoes in the house.
