Jacob got his first pair of real shoes today. Sigh. My little boy is growing up!
We took him to Stride Rite to get measured and he's a 5.5 extra wide. Which is apparently super hard to find. Shocker. I mean, Josh wears a 16 in shoes and neither of us can buy clothes in stores (have to buy online), so I don't know why it shocks/annoys me that we can't just run into Payless and grab a pair of shoes for the little dude.
Anywaysssss.... We went to Nordstrom which has a great selection of baby shoes, especially wide sizes! The girl who helped us was super sweet and told me she was excited for a challenge (aka finding shoes to fit my man-child is a challenge).
All the Stride Rite shoes were too tight, so we settled on a pair of Keens. They're more of a sandal/Crock-like shoe, but I think they'll work great for the summer. And they're waterproof and basically indestructible. And they're pretty dang cute on his chubby feet. Hehe :)
We ended up getting a regular size (i.e. not wide), but went up a size to a 6.
