Closed – Congrats to the lucky winner, Linda !
When I was getting Emma’s closet ready for fall, I discovered the Pediped Originals I had reviewed back in March. I decided to try them on her with my fingers crossed, but they no longer fit her growing feet. It was a sad moment for me; partly because my little baby is no longer a baby, but mostly because I loved the Grace shoe from Pediped.
Angela and Brian Edgeworth started Pediped in 2004 when trying to find the perfect shoe for their little girl. Like any good parent, they wanted the highest quality, most comfortable and best style in a shoe for their child. This is exactly what the company offers today, through over 3000 stores world-wide.
There are three lines offered by Pediped footwear. The Originals® mimic barefoot walking for children who are learning to walk, the Grip ‘n’ Go™ line is for the kids who are transitioning from those first few steps until they develop a confident stride, and the Flex® is for experienced little walkers and runners.
Emma is now in that experienced walker phase, though she specializes in running. We received the Giselle style from the Flex line. They’re a chocolate brown leather shoe with pastel dots. What I first noticed just by looking at them as they came out of the box is that they’re adorable and perfect for fall. But what really makes these shoes special is all in the engineering.
First, they’re made from leather to allow her feet to breathe. Also, the sole is flexible to keep up with her activities. Emma likes to stand on her tippy toes and walk around, and she can actually do that wearing these Flex shoes. Finally, the heel cushion distributes foot pressure evenly, which is an essential quality to ensure foot health.
With the rate at which Emma’s feet are growing, I greatly appreciate the Pediped Flex Fit System. The insole that comes along with the shoe provides an additional 2mm of thickness to the inside of the shoes, which can be removed as little feet grow and extra room is needed. Every shoe should have this! Sure, you can always buy a size up but with Flex Fit, the shoe will fit nice and snugly to begin with.
It’s another great design from Pediped. If you like a good deal (and who doesn’t?), Pediped is now offering Free Shipping with this promotional code: 75ship.
