Baby Steps: 7 first walker shoes for stylish first steps

First steps are all about picture moments and baby book updates, but ensuring that little feet are well protected as they take their first step is of utmost important. That’s why we’ve pulled together some brands we love, for functional and fashionable first steps.

 

However, before you begin adding them to your cart, here are some things to keep in mind:

 

  • Shoes should be lightweight and flexible to support natural foot movement
  • Shoes should be made of leather or mesh to allow your baby’s feet to breathe comfortably
  • Shoes should have rubber soles for traction to prevent slipping or sliding
