So I wrote down some of the brands you listed and sent my mom and DS off to the stores (I am on bed rest). She took him to an upscale, old-fashioned kids shoes store I guess. I about choked when I heard that but she says she is footing the bill...
Anyways, apparently DS has a gigantic, wide, and tall foot. Of all the shoes he sold only 3 pair were a style he could fit. So in the end there's no way he would have fit in converse shoes. He has some Japanese brand shoe... The guy assured her they came highly recommended and were light and flexible.
Gonna keep this thread book marked for the next pair he will need (and then I can buy them myself! Woo hoo!) I love the suggestions.
