Any Shoes That Actually Stay on an 9 Month Old?

I have a very active 9 month old boy and am having a hard time keeping his feet covered now that the weather is turning colder, most kinds of shoes he just kicks off or pulls off any advice on what kind of shoe to use or other methods of keeping his little toes warm thru the winter?

What can I do next?

Most are variations on the same theme as Robeez (though with slight differences in width, leather, designs, etc.):

My 9-month-old guy has a wide foot, so ShooShoos work well (hand-me-downs from big sistser). And Soft Star Dorado's w/ velcro are staying on well (my son also removes everything from his feet as soon as you put it on), but these are pretty pricey and I only got mine because I found them for 40% off (and even that still stung).

N., I just noticed you posted this a while ago but go to walmart. They have the most adorable shoes for 10$ they are soft soled but have tread rubber on the bottom. I have 2 pair for my daughter. They are hannging on an end cap display by the infants stuff not in the shoe section. They come in several styles. They are like robeez but have the tread for walkers

Stride rite shoes are great, but can get to be a little pricey. I have very active 14 month old twin boys that have been wearing shows since they were 2 months old. I found walking shoes that look just like stride rites walking shoes for about $10-$15 at Payless and that is what my guys have been wearing for the past 6 months. They work great and they cant get them off. They give them the support they need for walking too.

Have you tried the leather slippers they have for babies. There is the name-brand Robeez (kind of pricey, like ($28/pair)which you can find at Stride Rite stores but Carters and Target both have cheaper versions (around $12 last I bought). My niece had Robeez, my daughter had the Target ones and there was no difference (except the price) They stay on really well and are pretty slip resistant. Also they are machine washable and are good for learning to walk since they have soft soles. You can put socks on underneath and they are not easy to pull off, my niece can get anything off except these.

Hope this helps.

Hi! My 8 month old is EXTREMELY active and also hates anything on his feet. I've found that hi top sneakers or boots[ I found little timberlands that are like his dads that are sooo cute!] work the best. Make sure that they have velcro and not laces, otherwise he unties them and gets them off. But the velcro keeps them tight. We've been able to keep shoes on since we've dicovered this. good luck!

you can try robez or stage 2 shoes at stride rite where they con just below the ankle bones and they lace up. Stride rite has awesime sohes, just go in there tell them your problem and they can find the style of shoes that will work best for your situation!

Sorry to say, there are no shoes that will stay on or other ways to make them stay, short of super glue, and if yours is anyhting like mine are/were that wouldn't help either! I have a 7.5 and 2.5 year old, they both hate shoes! First chance they get they take them off. The oldest we can tell to put his back on and he does, the youngest, he takes them off in the car and before we get him our we're usually putting socks and shoes back on his feet, even if it's only been 5 minutes! My only suggestion is get velcro, that way it doesn't take you too long to get back on him! Works great for my 2 yr old!!!!
Good luck,

Robeez, Robeez, Robeez my little boy would always pull his shoes off and someone suggested Robeez and I tried them. Actually my doctor recomended them. She told me that by using hard soled she that babys feet were not able to grow probally so that is what caused them probelms when they got older. She told me to use Robeez. You can buy them at striderite off of Sawmill road. The are a little expensive but worth it!! Also striderite will measure you little ones feet to make sure he is wearing the right size. Hope this helps!! A.

I saw the copycat Robeez at Target, they look very similar and are only $12.99. I would go with these. We received a pair of Robeez for my daughter's first birthday. They were adorable, and pretty easy to put on and keep on. The only problem I had with them, is for her age she was already walking and we walked outside in the grassy morning dew and the wetness. They received incredible wear and tear in two months, but she's was using them as breaks in her little car, running in the grass etc.
