3 months and one year no. There little feet grow way too much an will b buying shoes again n a few weeks. 4 year old yes. I would and have. My daughters sneakers are stride rites. They cost about 40 bucks. I wanted a good sturdy pair of shoes that were comfy and fit her feet good. She's for other shoes that are by so costly but she needed a good pair of shoes se can run n play in.

Then I would.  If you have it, why not?  I did that for our little girl.  She's almost 2 too.  But now, she's gotten to a point where she wants shoes every where we go lol.

he is almost 2 and he walks wonderfully so I am wanting to get him sturdy shoes

For the older one yes, the babies, .. eh, ok for the 3 month old no.  The 1 yr old, if walking or learning to walk, probably.  We bought our little girl some at stride rite, the pre-walker ones for around 35ish.  The 3 month old though, prob not.  I love baby toes.  But that's just me.

I don't like to spend more than $20 on shoes they will grow out of in the blink of an eye. But I usually can find nice name brand shoes for about $20 Like my DD's black and pink Nikes

Also is able to wear them for a good 6 months (is about how long we have had this pair) so far so I can justify them since she's able to wear em for a lil while. Her last pair laste a year and when we got rid of em were still n good shape just didn't fit.

I don't even buy them shoes until they are walking....so absolutely not for the 3 month old and...wait a second.....absolutely not for the 1 and 4 year old too.

But hey, you do what you want to do with your money. Money is relative to the family, and certain things are more important to some than others.

3 months, no.  But, all 4 of my kids spent their toddler years in Stride Rite shoes.  Shoes that fit well and are designed for developing toddler feet are of utmost importance.  Cheap shoes that break down do not offer the proper support for those learning to walk and forming the shape of their feet.  Poor shoe quality in toddler years can develop foot problems for the future.

So, $40 for shoes for a toddler is not a bad price to pay so long as they are truly shoes that are designed for the forming toddler feet learning to walk.
