Toddler shoes can be tricky. You want footwear that looks good, for sure, but when it comes to toddler shoes for boys and girls, it’s what on the inside that counts. Jane Andersen, DPM, a board-certified podiatrist based in North Carolina, explained what to look for when buying toddler shoes. The primary goal is to protect their little feet. She told Fatherly, “They’re learning how to walk and when you put on a shoe, it prevents them from slipping.”

The key elements to look for make total sense. “You want a flexible shoe without a rigid sole. You want the foot to develop on its own,” she says. “In a perfect world, toddlers could walk barefoot, but in this case a thin sole protects their feet.” When it comes to sizing, “Make sure you ask if there’s any pain or if the shoe rubs anything. You want a little bit of room, a thumb’s width, in the toe box so there’s room to grow. It’s important to have them try on the shoe and be able to test them and wear them around,” says Anderson.
