Now that Finn is walking more and more, I figured it was finally time to get him his first pair of shoes. I wasn't sure how he would react to having something on his feet, as he's never worn shoes before (I've put shoes off with all my kids until they were walking), and I've never been able to keep socks on him. So he's been a barefoot boy for over two years now.
I was a little torn on what to go with for him. Do we put him in some kind of "special" shoe? He doesn't wear orthotics, and, though I'm not an expert, I haven't noticed anything indicating that he needs orthotics. So "special" shoes (whatever those might be) seem kind of unnecessary. I decided to start with Pedipeds. These were the first shoes Lilah wore, and I loved them. They're all-leather, soft-soled (but durable enough for outside), and lightweight - in other words, not too cumbersome or restricting. Plus, they're super cute, and when you're a cool little dude like Finn, you gotta have the stylin' kicks.
But alas, he figured out very quickly how to take them off. So we'll see. I sure do like these shoes. But I think I'll try some Converse sneakers that tie next.
