The Best Summer Sandals for Chunky, Wide Toddler Feet

Does your toddler's feet look like this?  Chunky, doughy, and delicious?  My 21-month old has feet that look like fresh-baked loaves of bread.  I forget that they're extra chunky until I shop for shoes.

Saltwater Sandals are so cute for kids! Greyson started walking last July and we kept him in soft-soled shoes as he was learning to walk, so we didn't get the sandals last year.  But, as soon as it got above 70 degrees, which happened this week, I went out sandal shopping.  I originally thought that the Sharks model would be good for Greyson since the toes are protected from being scraped.  But his chunky feet wouldn't fit into them!  We got the Surfer model since the front strap is adjustable.  Greyson is wearing a 6.5 shoe these days and I got the sandals in size 7 (whole sizes only), so he has some room to grow.  The size 6 was exactly right for him, but he'd probably grow out of them in a few weeks.

I love these sandals and so does Greyson.  He was comfortably running in them as soon as he put them on and he wants to wear them every day.  When it was cold again yesterday, he still wanted to wear the sandals, so I put on some socks and then the sandals.  He looked like a senior citizen, but he rocked the look with confidence.
