On Saturday, my mom and I took Little B shopping for some new shoes (his Sperrys lasted approximately 2.5 minutes). As I suspected, he has refused to wear “regular” shoes because his feet are extremely wide and previous pairs were downright uncomfortable. Not just extra wide, but extra extra wide (I find this to be both hilarious and adorable. I mean, how cute is this pic of him testing out a very manly navy pair?!). Short of enlisting some Italian shoemaker to construct Little B’s special kicks, the only place I have found that carries his size is Stride Rite (where I shopped with my mom for shoes decades ago - how nostalgic!). Moms, I need some help! Do you know of other brands that carry my little guy’s size?
