When it comes to shoe shopping for your children, most parents cringe at the thought. While we love to buy our kids the trendiest must-have styles, we hate to spend the money on them because we know how fast their feet grow. At the same time, we know that we might have to spend a little extra money to provide our children with quality shoes that will protect their feet.
Pediped has been a household favorite for years for children’s shoes. They’ve been seen on celebrity babies and kids and have been the topic of conversation in popular magazines and websites. What makes Pediped shoes special and unique is their barefoot-like feel. Their shoes are even approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association for promoting healthy foot development. What’s even better is that there shoes won’t break the bank.
My daughter recently got her first pair of Pediped Grip ‘n’ Go shoes and she’s absolutely loving them. Finally a pair of shoes that she’s excited to wear. She received the Bree Grip ‘n
Go’s in the Bubblegum print. The Bree shoes come equipped with Pediped’s famous G2 Technology.
G2 Technology™ is specially designed for children transitioning from early walking to walking with a more confident stride. G2 Technology™ includes a soft rubber sole, rounded edges that mimic the natural shape of a child’s foot, heel stability, and a soft toe box that allows toes to curl and grip the floor.
The all natural rubber soles gives kids an extra grip on slipper surfaces and the mary-jane Velcro strap makes these shoes ideal for toddlers. The canvas upper portion of the shoe resists dirt and is easy to wipe.
