This is a great shoe! I choose it for my baby learning to walk. I had purchased this same shoe for my nephew and remembered the shoe was very lite and would be great for little feet learning to walk. My son was walking on his own in no time and these shoes were perfect! Other shoes were too heavy or wide for his little feet. They are also cool and stylin' on the playground! I actually bought the same shoe 2 sizes bigger for when he outgrows the ones he is wearing now.
