Good For Learning To Walk

Thanks to Stride Rite, we were able to try the Soft Motion line for free. We selected the 'Medley' Sneaker since it is just as colorful as our little girl. We love the look and the ability to velcro these tightly on her feet. Our daughter just turned a year and is in between crawling and walking. She is able to walk, but doesn't like to unless she is pushing something or holding our hand. These shoes seem like they increase her balance when she wears them. My biggest concern was that they would be too rigid to allow her to feel the ground, but right out of the box I saw they are significantly more flexible than I imagined, while still maintaining a good sense of durability. The shoes stay on her feet through all her flailing activities, but I do have one thing I wasn't completely happy with. While the velcro strap allows the shoe to fit securely, she is able to very easily pull the velcro off and remove the shoe. I know kids are going to do that anyway, but other shoes we've tried we more resistant to that temptation. Overall I recommend giving these shoes a shot. I can't really speak to how much easier they made walking, but they certainly didn't hurt her progress.
