VEGAN CHILDREN'S SHOES
Baby Vegan didn't wear shoes until they started to walk. We have been through a lot in quick succession, which were either: too big, too hard to get on, or just fell off. Baby Vegan couldn't walk in shoes at first, and preferred to be barefoot. They have now learnt to walk with more confidence, and I think would be happy in any shoes.
The first shoes which stayed on Baby Vegan's feet were some Primark plimsolls from a charity shop. They took one off on a train after a few days, and that was the end of them.
We later bought some moccasin style sock slippers with a sole. These mostly stay on, but do need adjustment occasionally when the foot falls off the sole.
Ankle length welly boots are possible to both put on the foot and then stay there. At first they wouldn't go on, but Baby Vegan seems to have learnt how to hold their foot to help us now. At first Baby Vegan had some trouble walking, but got the hang of it. One fell off when Baby Vegan was in their carrier, probably on the bus.
