First walking shoes

Now that our daughter is walking we need to get her shoes. How do you determine the right size? Any brands that are better? What should we avoid?

I have heard they only last a few months before the shoes get too small. We don't want to spend a lot so want to know what has worked well for others!

    My sister has always bought the cheap robeez once they started walking. They are leather, soft sole shoes. I don't worry about shoes until they start walking outside. It's easier on them to just go barefoot.

      Honestly I've never gotten too technical with it. I went to walmart and tried shoes on him until I found some that fit. And if I'm buying them, they have to be on sale. Baby feet come in so many shapes and sizes it's just easier to try them on.

        We just tried shoes on in the store and found a pair that fits well. We have her practice walking in them everyday.
