When I had my son it was very difficult to keep sneakers on his feet as he was beginning to crawl and walk. I was always losing a shoe in the store or car because they wouldn't stay secured on his feet.
These days, there are socks that look like sneakers and shoes. They stay on the feet very well and are fashioned to go with any color or type of outfit that is put on the toddler or baby.
This set of six pairs of socks are made from cotton, which is important because baby's feet have a tendency to sweat and the cotton will wick away the moisture from the soles of the feet. They have anti-skid bottoms so that the child can get a secure footing as they are attempting to stand or crawl.
The cost is inexpensive and they would make a great add-on shower gift for the anticipation of a baby boy. The sizing is 12-24 months.
