Do you remember your baby's first real pair of shoes?

I certainly remember my daughters! You see, for the longest time, we had trouble finding the right pair to fit her feet. She had an odd foot size, they were small in length, but quite tall and chubby. We'd find some that fit in length, but they would be too tight a squeeze for the height. We could size up to get them on her feet, but then they'd be several sizes too big. So mostly, she did without.

When she started to walk more, we knew that we needed to come up with a solution. That was when we discovered Pediped...and more specifically, the Pediped Flex. This unique systems allowed us to find the perfect fit for my daughter.

So, what's the Pediped Flex Fit System?

With the Flex Fit System™, each pair of pediped Flex® closed-toe shoes comes with an additional 2 millimeter insole to customize the fit of the shoe so it is just right for each child. These insoles can reduce a shoe size by almost half a size.

To use, simply lift the colored insole that comes inside the shoe and place the white additional insole underneath. Afterward, be sure to replace the original insole as this will be the layer next to your child’s foot. Check the fit: shoes should fit snug, but not tight. When there is no need for the extra white insole, simply take it out and use the original insole by itself. This insole should remain in the shoe at all times to ensure comfort for your child.


Not only did this allow us to find the best fit possible, it also helped those same shoes fit longer! With rapidly growing baby feet, this was certainly a plus!! So, as my daughter has continued to grow, Pediped shoes have continued to be our top pick for her!


But it's not just the fit that make them last, it's the quality too. I don't know about your kids, but mine are rough on shoes! They need their shoes to be able to keep up with the playing they put them through- especially in the warm spring and summer months that allow them to spend more time outside. With other shoes, we have found that we often need to replace them even before the kids have had a chance to outgrow them. They end up with holes or falling apart. It's not pretty. With my daughter's Pediped shoes, we have found that even after regular every day wear, there is still plenty of life left in them long after they've outgrown.



If your little one isn't quite ready for Flex, Pediped offers a style that is perfect for all stages:

Originals®
·        pediped® Originals® are the first step in the pediped® footwear system. Soft-soled, and flexible, these shoes are recommended by pediatricians and podiatrists, as the design closely mimics barefoot walking, and do not force a child to change their natural stride. Each style is lined with a slip-resistant leather sole and includes pediped® patented signature hand-stitching, allowing for a breathable shoe. Originals® styles retail starting at $37 and are available for children in sizes newborn to 24 months.

Grip ‘n’ Go™
·        Grip ‘n’ Go™ styles provide a smooth transition for a child learning to walk with a more confident stride. The second step in the pediped® footwear system, all Grip ‘n’ Go™ shoes include G2 Technology™, which contains a specialized soft rubber sole for additional cushion, rounded edges that mimic the natural shape of a foot to help with stability, a grip zone for additional traction, and a soft toe box that allows toes to curl and grip the floor. Varied styles come with additional features such as Memory Foam Technology™, and machine-washable capabilities. Grip ‘n’ Go™ styles retail starting at $48 and are available in EU sizes 19-23, US kids 4-7.

Flex®
The third, and final, step in the pediped® footwear system is Flex®. For those who have a developed a solid, natural stride, Flex® combines high quality materials and advanced technology to create the perfect, stylish choice for all-day comfortable wear. Most styles include the Flex Fit System™, which offers a customizable fit with the use of additional insoles, extending the life of a pair of shoes up to two months. To top it off, a cushioned arch support and flexible rubber soles ensure coziness and ongoing healthy foot development. Flex® styles retail starting at $39.95 and are available in EU sizes 20-38, US 5 kids-6 youth (available sizes vary between styles).


With the warmer weather now approaching it's time to start thinking about spring and summer shoes...and with over 70 new styles to choose from you're sure to find a style that your little one will love from crib to play!
