Soft Baby Shoes

As soon as your baby starts to walk, you need to think about getting his or her first pair of shoes. Experts agree that the best kind of footwear for baby to start with is soft baby shoes. They allow the natural flexibility to allow your baby to learn to walk and balance properly while giving the necessary protection that baby's feet need.

Soft shoes for your baby protect the feet against cold and dirt. Although babies need to learn how to walk in bare feet, they also need to get accustomed to the feeling of shoes. Soft shoes are a good transition between bare feet and hard shoes.

Soft shoes should be made of a natural material such as leather or cotton to allow your baby's feet to breathe. Because your baby is so active, his or her feet will perspire quite a bit, and natural materials allow the perspiration to escape.

Many people consider buying shoes as a baby gift, but they are not necessarily the best gift. Just like adult shoes, baby shoes need to be fitted properly. This means the baby should be taken to a shoe store that specializes in baby shoes. The staff should have experience in fitting baby shoes.

Although it's best to buy baby shoes and store where you can try them on, many people prefer the convenience of buying mail order. Many companies specialize in mail order shoes, and have guides that help you in selecting the correct size and style. Mail-order shoes may be less expensive than those bought in a store but there will be an extra charge for shipping.

No matter where you buy shoes, try to get the best quality for your money. Look closely at the construction -- the stitching should be evenly spaced and at a consistent distance from the edge. The dies used for baby shoes need to be nontoxic because babies will put almost everything into their mouths, including shoes.
