So, both of my girls are solid walker-runner-jumper-climbers. Even so, I still have that yearning for Robeez and Robeez-esque shoes. Sweet leather crib shoes melt my heart.
Crab has long skinny feet that appear (sorry honey) flat. That comes from me. You are welcome. That said, she was raised in the creme de la creme of shoes. Lots of European shoes like Umi and a ton of Stride Rites peppered with the occasional Keds. I was very concerned about proper foot care. These days, she is happiest in a pair of Crocs.
Gonzo has cute, chubby feet. She is a size 6 toddler. As the second child, she has been given hand-me-downs and cheap shoes. Well, I put a pair of cheapo shoes on her the other day and after a day on the town, her beautiful little chubby heels were bleeding! Bad mommy. She was crying for two days saying how her feet hurt. Bad. Bad. Mommy. So I caved and bought a pair of buttery soft Robeez Tredz - the new line that has thick rubber soles instead of leather soles.
They just arrived today. I am excited to see how she does with them. I bought a traditional fishermans sandal style. They are not for heavy duty use, but I plan on monitoring the sole wear and seeing how they hold up.
