Help with shoes!

My 4 year old son has had no shoes, that don't hurt his feet for several months! I have bought around forty different pairs now and he will wear them for fifteen minutes and say they hurt. He used to wear shoes constantly and I know this is no fun for him either. I even bought a pair of extra wide stride rite shoes, cut the bungee laces off and used regular laces, really loose. Yesterday he said he will just always go barefoot. I feel so alone with this problem. Please help!

I've had the same problem most of my life. It sometimes seems like every shoe made on the planet was designed to torture me. Because of this, I spent most of my childhood barefoot, and transitioned to flip-flops later. I've finally found a pair of sketchers that are actually comfortable, and it's pure bliss! They're the ones that sort of resemble beach shoes that kids wear in the water.
