Best shoes for new walkers ever!

I want to start by saying I did receive these shoes free from Bzzagent who partnered with Stride rite in exchange for my honest review. I know many people will read my first line and then just skim past my review. BUT I assure you this is my honest opinion of these shoes so please keep reading for some honest pros and cons of these shoes. A con is this particular shoe style does run small. My son is a size 3 and the size 3 of this style was so exact on his foot there was no room at all. We now know to order a 3.5 in these for next time to have an exact fit with a tiny bit of room. If you want to be safe with these then just order one full size up. Now my son is currently 12 months old and started walking about a month and a half ago. He always hated other brands of shoes because he had such a hard time walking in them and would trip over his own feet. Other shoes also would sometimes just slip off his feet. He disliked shoes up until the moment we were introduced to Stride Rite soft motion. We put these shoes on, and even though they were his exact size and kind of tight, he was able to walk right away like as if nothing was on his feet! I was shocked to see how easily he was able to walk in these because other shoes he would trip or stumble and then sit down and pull off. With these shoes he was able to walk so easily because the bottom sole of the shoe is rounded and flexible so it felt like nothing was on his feet at all! Also, another pro is he was unable to pull these off because they stay nicely shaped to their feet and have a velcro making it nearly impossible to get off. He wore these shoes on his first birthday and he was able to walk around and had a blast in these shoes. And we have the cutest pictures of him wearing these very stylish shoes. The thing I have been loving about Stride rite is they are very stylish and there are so many different styles. Also, the inside of the shoes has a lining that is padded to make it comfortable to wear for long periods of time. I ended up ordering two more pairs of shoes from stride rite so even though I tried this pair for free, I ended up loving them so much that I spent my own money to get my son another pair of sneakers in the correct size and some boots for winter. We seriously are a huge fan of this brand and I am so thankful that I got to try them free at first because now I know the true quality of these shoes. I will be purchasing this brand going forward!
