Hailey has just started in the past week tottering/walking along with her walker & up until now she has only worn socks & soft slippery type things.I was wondering is now the time to get her measured in Clarks or somewhere similar for prewalkers?…She is 14 months old now,i dont know if she will do damage to her feet just walking about in socks?.
Any info appreciated as always…February 8, 2013 at 10:25 am #126836
bare foot is best – and the physio i take my older dd told me this. She said that kids should be properly walking before being fitted for shoes of any description. The likes of the shoobees /shoo shoo are best for what Hailey is at at the moment – google them.

this is type of soft shoe i mean. Next do a similare type shoe i think.
could totally be co-incidence but i got my dd1 fitted for prewalkers when she was barely standing and i went with clarkes – she’s flat footed and attends physio – she’s not to bad mind but wearing Clarkes didn’t help as they have no arch support in them
by the time dd2 started to walk we’d been to first phsyio with dd1 so dd2 went into these type of shoes until she was totally sturdy then she went into Pabloski shoes…..start rite is supposed to be another good make.February 8, 2013 at 12:31 pm #126841
Yeah – basically same. No shoes until she is running round the place. Until then bare feet & if the floors too cold etc slipper socks (socks with non-slip bits on bottom) Heatons usually have them…..February 8, 2013 at 8:56 pm #126853AnonymousInactive
Thanks for that ladies,i will look into soft slippery type shoes,i guess she still needs to be measured for them though?
Do they sell those socks with grips on anywhere other than heatons,as there is no store near me.February 8, 2013 at 10:17 pm #126854
Marks & Sparks? Next, Tesco & Dunnes at times – might be some left over from ChristmasFebruary 11, 2013 at 8:47 am #126868

Shoo shoo are the best, i loved them. If you goggle them you might find some good offers.February 16, 2013 at 7:14 pm #126933

I got socks in dunnes with grippers on the soles but she still seems to slip & slide a bit (we have wooden floors downstairs).she is zooming around with her walker,she loves it….i cant wait till she can learn to turn it though!….as im up & down turning it around for her when she reaches the walls at either end of the room!February 17, 2013 at 8:09 pm #126941
try next haileysmum – a few websites have them too google shoo shoo, shu shu, i got mine in a shoe shop in drogheda but it’s closed not sure if victor dwyers have them.
i’m sure one of the mammies on here was involved in something similar but that’s going back about 3yearsFebruary 17, 2013 at 11:44 pm #126942
With my first was advised to restrict use of walkers at this stage & to use bare feet & let them be independent. Told was best to help them get balance. Seemed to work too – once I got over my obsession that tiny toes would be cold. Had laminate / lino / tiled floors too. Just don’t polish them or use cleaners with polish in them. Hot water enough. That’s what I was told & haven’t found fault wuth advice yet! Good luck with the sock hunt – I always seemed to be looking for the blooming things at the wrong time of the year!February 18, 2013 at 11:12 am #126945Taylor5Member
shoo shoo are just like being in barefeet, they were designed to be like a second skin iykwim.
