As I remember both my kids was around 9 to 10 months when they start to walked. They will take a few steps here and there but they crawls a lot. Both my girls waited until 16 to 18 months to really walk. Base on my personal experience. Barefoot is the best when you train your toddlers how to walk. Until I saw that they are completely walking without any wobbling or anything that's the time they wear the cute little shoes. The reason I did this because, I feel that baby's who are just beginning to walk may stumble over there heavy shoes. What I did was I would stand behind holding my toddler's hands and walked with her. Once I knew she had enough confidence, I would let go one hand at a time then she just figured it out that she was doing it on her own she would get excited as well as I and I would make a great cheer and clap.
