Top 10 Shoes for New Walkers


  • Robeez Soft Soles 1 of 10
    Robeez Soft Soles
    As one of the leaders in infant footwear, Robeez has gained the trust of parents and parenting experts alike. During their early months, my girls practically lived in these super-soft soles! I also like how the elasticized back keeps the shoes snugly fastened.

  • Jemos 2 of 10
    Jemos
    Super comfortable and stylish to boot, Jemos uses high-quality, buttery soft leather remnants to make these earth-friendly shoes that give just the right amount of support for those early years and a ton of cushiony, padded comfort. My youngest used to refer to these as her “slippers.”

  • Stride Rite SRT Shoes 3 of 10
    Stride Rite SRT Shoes
    I bought these when my youngest daughter started walking at 9 months. If you have an early walker or a baby who is prone to trips and slips, nothing beats Stride Rite’s SRT shoes. They have excellent tread, flexible outsoles and rounded edges that mimic the shape of baby’s foot.

  • Pediped Originals 4 of 10
    Pediped Originals
    Pedipeds are the go-to brand for simple and stylish baby shoes. Their velcro fasteners make them easy to slide on and off, and their cushioned insoles provide comfort whether your child is playing inside or outside. We found them perfect for daily runs in the grass.

  • Umi Infant Pre-Walker Shoes 5 of 10
    Umi Infant Pre-Walker Shoes
    My daughter loves her dresses but with her fast-paced walking style and early clumsiness, we needed a shoe that was a bit more … outdoor-friendly. With their leather and rubber traction outsoles, wrap toe design and heel bumpers, these European-inspired shoes ensure a “stubless” walking experience.

  • See Kai Run Smaller 6 of 10
    See Kai Run Smaller
    These are an all-in-one package: classy style, soft soles with non-slip rubber and padded, breathable linings. I will most likely be leaning toward these shoes when my son is born as they have a terrific range of styles for boys.

  • Robeez Mini Shoez 7 of 10
    Robeez Mini Shoez
    These comfortable, slip-free and supportive shoes are similar to Stride Rite’s SRTs but are a bit more lightweight. My eldest daughter alternated these with her Robeez soft soles depending on her outfit.

  • Superga Infant/Toddler Torino Bambino Sneaker 8 of 10
    Superga Infant/Toddler Torino Bambino Sneaker
    Superga has been creating casual, chic and super-comfortable footwear for nearly 100 years. This is most likely one of the reasons why celebrity parents have learned to love the brand. Violet and Seraphina Affleck, Nahla Aubrey and Honor Warren are just a few of the celebrity kids who are fans.

  • I-Walk Sneakers by Bobux 9 of 10
    I-Walk Sneakers by Bobux
    If your little one wants to wear 'big kid' shoes, these are a great option. The styles mimic adult shoes but provide a fit suitable for infants. The flexible gum rubber sole and lace-free design prevent slips and trips, and an added bonus: they are made with the same leather used by ECCO shoes!

  • Converse Chuck Taylor First Star (Infant) 10 of 10
    Converse Chuck Taylor First Star (Infant)
    Padded insoles, non-skid grip outsoles and a name that really says it all — Converse! For $20.00 you can get your baby his or her first pair of designer sneakers. Although they don’t provide the same support as the styles above, these were a fun choice when my girls were infants.
