The news that Pediped was introducing a new line of shoes for toddlers was very exciting for me. I had fallen in love with the “Originals” line that my six-month-old daughter wears everywhere and I was ecstatic that my three-and-a-half-year-old son could have the benefits of Pediped as well.
I promptly ordered the “Conner” camouflage running shoe in size 29 (US size 12) and the adorable “Giselle” Mary Jane style shoe in chocolate brown with polka dots, for my 18-month-old niece. The new “Flex” line offers the same quality, comfort and style as the “Original” Pediped line with the exception of their new flexible, skid-resistant rubber soles, arch supports and customizable insoles (perfect since my son isn’t quite into size 12 yet!).
They have also been recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association as promoting quality foot health, something incredibly reassuring for parents who are trying to find the best footwear possible for their pre-schoolers.
My son loves his new Pediped “Flex” shoes so much he wears them everywhere. I love them because they are stylish, good for his feet, and because he can slip them on easily himself. They are appropriate for both indoor and outdoor use and come in a variety of cool colours and styles for boys (not to mention the super-cute options for girls!).
I have already ordered my son a pair of “Flex” sandals for the summer months and can’t wait for them to arrive. I’m also planning to get a pair that he can take to school with him in September as his “indoor” shoes. They will take him from the classroom to the gym in style and comfort and I won’t have to worry about him having trouble changing his shoes by himself. Of course, when my baby girl outgrows her “Originals”, I will be looking to keep her feet developing healthfully and fashionably in the Pediped “Flex” line as well.
So, I guess the only question I have for Pediped at this point is: When are you coming out with a line of cute and comfy shoes for adults???
