  • Some think going bare foot is best. We bought our daughter Robeez and Striderite.

  • Nothing at all. And only if she will be outside, then, really, really soft shoes..almost sock -like. The Robeez are good.

  • Barefoot is best. If you wan't to use something then go with soft-soled moccasins like robeez

  • Robeez are great - anything with a super flexible sole is good. Some of my favorite brands are see kai run, pedoodle, and pediped :)

  • Robeez, Striderite, or Pedipeds are all really good.

  • Another vote for Robeez! Barefoot is best but if you need to protect her feet for outside they are the next best thing!

  • Barefoot if she is inside. DS was walking at 10 months. We bought him some black pumas because they are flat soles that are rubbery and pretty flexible for when he was outside. We didn't have a stride rite where we were otherwise I would have tried to get something from there.
