As adults who can stand when we wear shoes that hurt our feet? I can’t even imagine being an infant or toddler who cannot express that their feet are hurting.:( I felt so terrible one time when JeNoah my three year old was an infant. He was 6 months old and I bought him these sneakers that were adorable. One night when I was putting him in the tub, I saw a little blister on his toe from the shoes. I could have cried! His little feet were too wide for the shoes.

It is important that we buy shoes for toddlers that are comfortable for them. I can honestly admit that I just fell in love with those sneakers but unfortunately he could not wear them. It is not about what we like if it interferes with their comfort.

  • Have your toddler’s foot sized properly: You can take your child into a shoes for toddlers store and have their foot sized. That is the only way to have an accurate measurement. We can pinch the top of the shoe and attempt to do it but it’s better to get it done correctly. I have done this plenty of times and the sales clerks are always so polite and happy to help out, even if I am not buying shoes in their store. You will be pleasantly surprised that you may think your toddler is in one size when in fact they need a bigger one. So please just try to get a proper measurement. Their little feet are worth it. This is important, especially for those little ones starting to walk. They really need comfortable shoes.

The Look

I know what some of you may be thinking. We are talking about shoes for toddlers, what does it matter how they look? I bet some of you are thinking that, huh? Well it matters to this mom and it always has. I care about how my child dresses and it matters to me a great deal. It is just as important as my son to get nice shoes as well as his parents.

Speaking for myself, I am very particular about the types of shoes I buy for my son. I am not going to go into certain details because what I may not like, others may. We are entitled to be “picky” about what we want for our children.

So keep that in mind when you are searching for the “perfect pair of shoes”. It is possible to get shoes for toddlers with a kewl look, great comfort and at an affordable price. Just put some extra effort in to saving money. Enjoy this time because before you know it they will be buying their own shoes.
