Re: How long to wear soft soled shoes?
We stopped having DS wear soft-soled shoes when the weather got really cold. We were taking him outdoors to the playground every day, even in the middle of January, and he needed something with thicker soles and more insulation. He started walking in July, so he was in soft-soled shoes for 4-5 months. I am totally for letting kids wear soft soles as long as possible, but for us, "as long as possible" wasn't really as long as I would have liked.
