Except when I saw Rileyroos, these fantastic parent-designed kid’s shoes that I’d actually wear if they came in my size. While these stylish kicks still definitely imitate barefoot walking, they’ve got a padded rubber sole, sort of like a driving shoe, that provides comfort and traction on your carpet and at the playground. And their signature curled toe actually provides your walkers with leverage between crawling and walking.
Considering my one-year-old has been walking for three months and still wobbles around, he can use all the help he can get. Find them at Bediboo, a great go-to place for keeping your kiddos cute (like they really need any extra help with that). -Kristen
