Robeez, are they worth it?

Just curious what you all think, and how they compare to cheaper knock offs.

Oh yeah. I mean, there are lots of different brands of knock-offs and I can't guarantee every one, but mine did just fine. There was absolutely zero difference in the performance between the two.

I had them for all of my kids and loved them. I just found that it helped to keep their socks on, otherwise they'd pull them off. Although I found the knock-offs worked just as well. I only ever bought 1 pair that my son got for his first Christmas, all the other ones were hand-me-downs.

Here's a link for some of the ones at ToysrUs, online. They're really cute. And I threw mine in the washer with no problems.

I also just checked out Target. Not bad prices either! My issues with buying expensive brands are, it's just a waste of money to me. They grow through them so quickly.

I always buy the Robeez second hand. Once Upon a Child in Canada has a ton of them. I've tried others, the Robeez seem to hold up a bit better.

Ok, I bought the ones at target, and they look and feel the exact same as Robeez. I wonder if the company makes them adn sells them to stores like target for cheep sales.

The knockoffs are fine IMO. Robeez are too expensive and kids grow out of shoes way too fast.

I like Bramies better (they are Canadian I think), but they are really hard to find. I think they sell them at tourist shops here. The leather on them is waaaaaay softer and even my daughter couldn't get them off (she was obsessed with shoe removal).

Personally I prefer stride rites for our 2.5 year old son. They are a bit on the pricey side but worth it!



Edit to add: Ha! Sride rites make Robeez's..I'd say they are worth it! I love sride rites! :) Our son currently has a pair of SRT Landon's.

I have used them, I didnt know thats what they were called. I was all about letting my son go barefoot while he learned how to walk, around 10 months, however I had to put him in daycare shortly after and they wouldnt take him without shoes. So I found some leather "robeez" that allowed him to walk without the confinements of traditional shoes, and yet it met the daycares requirements...of course now I am back at home with him full time and if were not outside we are barefoot.

My son received them as a gift and I loved them! But, I never bought him another pair after that. It was also before I discovered Craigslist too. (I'm a CL junkie-got some NWT kid clothing posted right now! Matching sibling sets)

Huh. I never new I could put Robeez in the wash.



Never tried any knock-offs, but I love Robeez. Since my kids rarely wear shoes they were the best option when going out.

I've had both Robeez and cheap knock-offs and I thought they were both about the same really. I received the Robeez as gifts or hand-me-downs and bought the knock-offs. I'd definitely go for the cheap ones again. After been worn, they both look exactly the same. And they were all very cute, so why spend the extra cash?

I had them for my son, but I cannot find them. I want to buy some for my daughter, and saw that Target sell something similiar.

Robeez are these awesome shoes for little ones that are made of leather (not crazy about that...) but help their feet develop properly when walking instead of regular shoes. Shoes tend to not let babies use their feet the way they should.

I buy Robeez because I think they're cute and comfortable for my little guy. He doesn't slip when he runs but I have tried other slippers too and they are basically all the same. I think its just a personnal choice.

I loved them, however I never bought them new... They're machine washable, so I had no problem buying them used. I never had to buy the knockoffs. However, I'm very tempted to buy some of the cute ones off of Etsy!

I never thought so. I got really nice soft soled shoes for my son at Toys R Us. I'd imagine Babys R Us would have had them too.
