|stride rite Natural Motion System shoes in Kit and Billy|
Experts agree that barefoot is best for early walkers, but it’s not always practical. To bridge the gap between baby booties like Robeez and regular shoes, stride rite has introduced an innovative line, Natural Motion System™ Early Walkers ($42), for baby sizes 2-5 (both medium and wide widths). They feature thin supportive outsoles with multidirectional flexible grooves to allow those little piggies grip the floor, comfy insoles that cup baby’s foot, breathable leather linings, and are made of recycled rubber, water-based inks and stitching. Packaged in cute gift boxes (also made of recycled materials), they make a great shower or first birthday gift.
