Pediatricians and experts agree that the best shoes for new walkers are no shoes, but with the weather starting to get a little chillier, you’re probably starting to think about buying baby his first walking shoes. The most important feature in a new walker shoe is a soft flexible sole which will let them grip the ground. A bootie-type shoe like Robeez are awesome for indoor walking but on cold and/or wet surfaces, you’re going to want a rubberized sole.
