The soft leather shoes are fabby. They have a suede sole so do give grip on wood floors.

DD had Starchild ones, http://pixiekids.co.uk/index.php?main_p ... t6vtk8mgd4 :D but you can also get inch blue, shoo shoos and some others that i can't remember the name of

I really like bobux shoes. They are fantastic. They have soft ones and i-walk ones.

We have some inch blue and some starchild ones and both are good on our laminate and wood floors.at 10 months tho we've had to get the 12 to 18 m/large ones.the elastic was too tight on the 6 to 12m and his feet were right at the end.

I struggled with this as we had the same problem with slipping and Grace has very high arches and small feet at the time so TBH getting a cruiser or crawler shoe that actually fit her properly was a nightmare...
She's on the verge of walking now and has 'proper' (albeit very soft) clarkes shoes but we ended up going up a whole size to get them to fit and they're perfect not to long or anything, weird huh!!

Shooshoes however are the best non-structured shoe fit I've found and brilliant - they're better than her inch-blue ones too so I'd go for those...
They're ok-ish for outside though the soles are very thin but you'd want to have a seperate pair for inside ;)

There are some gorgeously pretty ones available for girls too ;) :giggle:

http://www.zootjes.com/ This is what we used with Emi.
I think they are the best, not slippery and she can't pull them out herself ;)
