As fun as it is buying toys for the little ones, we also have to (or should) think practically and buy them things they could really use. I LOVE giving shoes as a gift because they are always needed with the way kids grow so fast! One of our favorite brands year round is pediped® and I was thrilled to receive a pair of pedipeds® for Addy for review this holiday season! They really do make the perfect toddler gift!
One reason I love pediped® so much is that they really pay attention to the needs of our little ones and their feet. They have the best first shoes on the market! The first shoes (the Originals) are ideal for infants and children who are learning to walk. You can then transition your little one to the Grip n Go shoes, which are perfect for the active toddler transitioning from early walking to their confident strides. Finally, you can stay in pedipeds® with the Flex shoes. These shoes are the ultimate shoe for confident walkers who have developed a solid natural stride. pediped® has your little ones covered for years and you can trust their quality won’t harm your little one’s feet! The shoes are approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association for promoting healthy feet.
We received the Grip n Go Giselle in Chocolate Brown for review. Addy is 22 months and is definitely an active toddler who has gotten very confident in her stride so there are the perfect stage of shoes for her. At first I was concerned, being that it’s winter here in Michigan, that her feet would get wet and cold. I’ve found though it’s not been a problem since we typically carry her to and from the car when it’s snowed. The Giselle shoe is a Mary Jane style with a Velcro strap, which makes for easy off and on! This is perfect for our little Miss Independent! The shoes have an all leather upper and lining, all of great quality!
The bottoms of the shoes so have a great sole for toddlers! The sole is an all natural rubber sole. The G2 Technology is also a huge benefit of these shoes for your little ones! The inside arch support is also priceless and needed for toddlers working on their confident strides.
Whether your child is crawling, learning to walk, or running all around, pediped® has a stylish shoe that fits comfortably and ensures healthy foot development. We trust pediped with our kids’ feet, and we are sure you’d be happy with this decision, too!
Purchase: pediped® carries shoes for children from birth until approximately 7-8 years old. We LOVE pediped and we are sure you will, too! You can purchase the shoes on their website or you can search for a pediped® retailer near you!
