Pediped Review + Giveaway

This springtime we had the opportunity to review a few Pediped shoes with our children, and we would love to share our experience with you along with host a fabulous giveaway!  Pediped has long been known for their Originals infant shoe, but their high-quality kicks for toddlers and bigger kids are catching on quickly, and with shoes that are boasted as approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association for promoting healthy foot development, it's a brand parents shouldn't overlook.  We have loved seeing our children wear their Pediped shoes this springtime and can't wait to tell you all about it!

For our review, we chose one pair of Grip 'n' Go shoes and one pair of Pediped Flex shoes; both of these shoes weathered the wear and and life of our busy growing girls!  After outgrowing the Pediped original style, the next step is the Grip 'n' Go style.  These wonderful toddler shoes are designed for those who have learned to walk and need a more structured shoe that can handle various walking surfaces. The Grip 'n' Go style is almost a hybrid between a soft sole and a regular walking shoe. It has all the flexibility and freedom of a soft sole, with the sturdiness and convenience of a traditional walking shoe. In Seattle, a soft sole shoe doesn't alway cut it with the weather we have, but these were perfect to wear on wetter days with their awesome outsole to protect feet from the elements. These are super comfortable for busy little feet since they are extra padded around the ankle with a nice cushioned sole. The quick velcro strap makes getting ready fast and easy, which we all know is a major plus when the family is headed out the door! We appreciated the sweet appliqued design on these maryjanes, available in three different color schemes - it was hard to select one! The brown and pink is a classic and useful combo that hides dirt and matches a huge variety of outfits. These are such a great transition from the Pediped Originals. Pediped quality always exceeds our expectations and these are a truly a fabulous toddler shoe - perfect for all of your adventures together! Here is Charlotte smelling the flowers in her Pediped Grip 'n' Go "Sadie" shoes!

Pediped Flex is an ideal shoe for children ages 1-8 who are confident walkers, and ready to graduate from toddler shoes.  The Flex shoes are designed with lightweight rubber soles and maximum flexibility, yet made with softer materials inside the shoe for comfort and ease of wear.  All Pediped Flex shoes are made with excellent craftsmanship and attention to detail, and we've never experienced quality issues with this brand.  The Flex shoe we tested out was the "Bianca", which recently sold out at the Pediped website, but is available at other retailers such as Diapers.com and Amazon.com.  The most similar design still available is the "Bailey".  This mary jane shoe is perfect for active girls who run and play, yet still need a sense of girly fashion and style.  The simple style and solid colors look great with most outfits, as well as uniforms.  One of the best attributes of these shoes is the traction and grip on the sole.  The Pediped Flex shoes we tried out withstood many midday walks to preschool, running around (the sometimes muddy) Seattle area parks, climbing on playground toys, and more without accidents or slips.   The durability of this shoe is top-notch and ideal for any active preschool or primary school student!  Here is an epic picture of Ruthie and Leah at the park, Ruthie is wearing the black "Bianca" Flex Pediped shoe.
Pediped offers free shipping and returns on orders over $35, and often shares promotions and sales that are worth checking out.  We suggest signing up for the e-mail newsletter to stay abreast of all sales and shopping opportunities.  We are also excited to host a giveaway for Pediped!  To enter, leave us a comment stating which shoe you think is perfect for your little one.  You can earn an additional entry by "Liking" Pediped on Facebook and leaving a comment here stating you did so.

My daughter is just on the verge of walking, and just on the verge of outgrowing her current soft-soled shoes! Since silver is our go-to neutral in our house, I'd love the Original "Betty" style in that color!
