I need your help, friends. My baby boy has some remarkably big, fat wide baby feet- too fat for human baby shoes, in fact. Truly, the little Velcro straps on his baby Vans burst spontaneously when they see his feet coming. He has very high arches that simply can't be contained in any foot containment unit. Either we can't get shoes on (because they are usually too narrow) or we wrestle and wrangle them in place and find we can't buckle/tie/Velcro or otherwise fasten the shoes over his high arches. Many a dream of wearing cute TOMS or little leather loafers has been dashed by his big little piggies. In addition to hampering his style, he needs some support. He's started to walk, so we need to solve this dilemma. He is 13 months and in a toddler size 5 or 6. Can anyone offer any tips/styles/brands for toddler shoes that accommodate the plus-sized foot?
