    Best early walker shoes

    I'm thinking ahead to this fall and winter and I'm gonna need some shoes for Aubrei. She's a great walker but her balance is really tricky so I need something that'll be as close to bare feet as possible but still have a non skid bottom. I also need tiny sizes, I think she's about a 2 with room to grow right now. They've also got to be able to keep her feet warm. I'm willing to spend what I need to in order to get what I want, is there anything that meets my criteria? I'm lost, I've always bought Converses for my kids but she can't wear those, I've tried some of Ella's old ones but she just falls in them . Help!

    I don't like tiny converse because while the soles are flexible when they are big, when they are small, they just are stiff. Any of the super flexible brands will be fine. I'm a huge soft star fan for the littles. You can get a custom made shoe. :-) I also like the stride rite line that is super flexible. Oh and Pediped grip and gos!

    SoftStar! You can get Ramblers and add a sheepskin inner sole.

    I like their merry janes. :-)

    They have a beautiful new ballerina flat out that I'm itching to try.

    Walmart has some Mary janes by Healthtex that have the squishy rubber bottoms like stride rite. Reese has had at least 7-8 pairs of different sizes and colors.

    I love Stride Rite SRT soft motion shoes and boots. The bottoms are completely flexible (and comparable to barefoot), but they are warm and you can get cute fur lined ones for winter.

    Scarlett wore them last winter when she was a new walker and they were perfect! Scarlett had these and the bottoms were completely flexible: [ame="http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00APV5EVO/ref=mp_s_a_1_41?qid=1406077122&sr=8-41&pi=AC_SX110_SY165_QL70"]Stride Rite SRT Dakota Boot (Toddler):Amazon:Shoes[/ame] (I also have two SR SRT boots that are brand new somewhere in swap that were too small for Scarlett.)

    I was trying to think of the SR line and that's it! I wish they made them in big sizes haha!
