Walkin' Shoes?

So Lyla has started to walk and I dont really know what to do for outside. All her shoes aren't for walking and I can't have her barefoot. Can anyone recommend some decent walking shoes?

We just bought some from pediped. They are supposed to be really good for walking/learning to walk. They arent a hard rubber sole, they're soft but great for outside.

I've heard good things about stride rite too, though I couldnt find a pair big enough for Owen that still had the soft sole. Im sure he will outgrow the pedipeds before long (we are on the largest size soft sole) and we will probably have to switch to the hard soles pretty soon!

Robeez have been ideal for both DS and my JJ, but they are a bit spendy, like $25-$30 for shoes that will fit for a few months). Target now sells some imitation robeez (called ministar) that are half the price. Lila has one pair of each (ministar and robeez) and the only difference I can see is that the robeez have softer leather.

Adrian is still in his Robeez and will be for a while (you can find deals on them on ebay), but he also has some pedipeds and See Kai Run sandals that I like for when things get more rugged this summer.
