Hi Ladies! I need some advice on what kinds of play shoes work well for a toddler in hot weather. Last year he went barefoot where possible, and I got these soft sneakers with socks for outside or at the park (when he'd be playing in gravel, sand or other uncomfortable stuff.) This year, he's a lot better at walking and running, but he's still pretty clumsy and still shuffles a lot so he needs good foot protection. But it really does get very hot here... I'd hate to force him to wear socks and sneakers again. I was thinking about some closed toe sandals, but I'm not sure if he'll get blisters or if he'd still have to deal with sand and mulch getting under foot all the time. Ditto with crocs... and I heard that crocs get slippery when your feet sweat. I'm thinking of just taking him to a specialty kids shoe store where they can fit him with a crazy expensive but comfortable option... but I just hate spending tons of money on shoes.
What kind of shoes do you think would be good for hot, clumsy feet?
