DS is 11.5 months old and can walk across the room before losing his balance. I haven't gotten shoes for him yet, but was wondering what I should get since he is in this transition phase of almost walking, but not quite yet. If I buy soft-soled leather shoes, will he not have that much more time in them? Can he still wear those shoes once he is fully walking? Or should I just move onto the more supportive shoes? Which ones would you recommend? I know, lotsa questions here!
