the bird has her cute little leather shoes (her very first shoes) but, we needed something more practical and ventilated for our vacation. i spotted these adorable little keen newport h2 sandals at rei and had to pick them up. she loves them and they fit her really well - just a touch big, which is great because they will last us all summer. they go on easy and are really durable. i was so happy that they come in size 4, which is really tough to find for the bird's little feet!
