nike free Many parents buy popular "grown-up" brands of shoes for their babies and toddlers. The tiny versions are admittedly extremely cute. They can also be very expensive.
But did you know that these kinds of shoes actually aren't the best choice for toddlers?
Toddlers are, by definition, learning to walk. They are unsteady on their feet, and balance is a huge issue. While pediatricians and other experts recommend that "barefoot is best" at this stage, it often isn't practical to go barefoot except at home.
The best shoes for little ones are very flexible, with sturdy but soft soles. The tough rubber of most tennis shoes and other "grown-up" brands is meant to be very inflexible -- exactly the opposite of what your toddler needs.

It's extremely important that toddler shoes fit properly. When thick-soled shoes are even a little too large -- like when a parent buys them "with room to grow" -- they aren't as comfortable as the ones that fit. They wear unevenly. These shoes get labeled as "ouchy" and then your toddler doesn't want to wear them at all.
If a shoe is too large, your toddler's balance will be off. He is likely to trip and fall more -- especially if the soles are thick and less sensitive to changes in the ground under his feet. Buying shoes that fit will be safer and much more fun for everyone as you treat fewer "owies" caused by tripping and falling.

If you are thinking of buying Nikes or another "grown-up" brand of shoes for your toddler, consider whether your toddler will be as comfortable in these as he would be in shoes with more flexible soles.
