While searching for first shoes for my little one, I found these shoes that are super comfy. I am sure you & your little one will love it too.
A good pair of branded first walker shoes (Pedipeds, Clarks, Bobux, Striderite) are always very expensive ($60 AUD or more) and the little ones always outgrow them so fast. Don’t pay for branding anymore when you can get great first walker shoes at a fraction of the price & still provides great comfort.
- Turned-up toe prevents stumbling.
- Toe box has enough room for toes to spread as in barefoot walking.
- Outsole is designed to bend easily at toe area. This design helps children to walk smoothly.
- Big and hard counter holds heel and ankle firmly and promotes correct walking.
- Wide opening and hook-and-loop strap for easy wearing. Wide strap secures fit.

The shoe industry does not have consistent standards that apply to all shoe stores, brands and shoes. To reduce the risk of our shoes not fitting your child (Note: postage is not covered for returns/exchanges), we recommend you measure your child’s feet before ordering as the size may not correspond directly with your child’s typical size. Refer to the Measure & Fit section below on how to do so.
Shoes are brand new, unused & unworn.
How to measure your child’s feet:
- Stand your child barefoot on a piece of paper.
- Draw a line at the top of the child’s longest toe and at the heel of the foot. Repeat for the other foot to ensure you measure both feet for accuracy. If one foot is larger, choose the larger foot.
- Use a ruler to measure the distance between the two lines. This is the measured foot length. The shoe inner length should be between 1 cm to 2cm longer for growth and wiggle room.
- E.g. Child’s foot measures 11 cm, add on minimum 0.5 cm for growth, preferably 1 cm so choose shoes with inner length of 12 cm. Always allow between 0.5 cm – 1 cm extra for growth and comfort when selecting the correct shoe size. 2 cm if wearing socks or if baby is on the taller and plumper side.
- It is always safer to get shoes that are bigger than smaller size as baby feet grows very fast during this period.
