pediped footwear Originals Collection {Review & Giveaway} ARV $32

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

When I look back through photos of Big Sister E during the time she was around 13 months old until approximately 18 or 19 months old, there are a few things that stick out to me.


First, those cheeks looked so much bigger when the rest of her was smaller, so it's a good thing she grew into them a little bit. Second, where in the world did the time go? Are these pictures from this lifetime? Third, I'm not surprised that her adorable pair of pink pediped shoes made its way into so many of the photos, they truly were with her every step of the way.


pediped footwear was created in 2004 by new parents, Angela and Brian Edgeworth, after they were unable to find the perfect pair of shoes for their daughter. In the six years since then, parents and children alike have recognized pediped's unique, extremely cute styles, their exceptional quality and unparalleled comfort and have made this company into one of the biggest names in children's footwear in the United States.

What makes pediped shoes so amazing? To start, there is a pair of shoes for every age for infants through toddlers. The pediped Originals line closely mimics barefoot walking and the slip-resistant leather sole, soft foam insert and flexible uppers all contribute to making these the best choice for developing little feet.

And have you LOOKED at them? They are adorable! There are more than 75 designs that range from dressy to casual in an entire rainbow of colors, including some great new sandals, mary janes and sneakers for the upcoming spring and summer months. Available in sizes ranging from newborn to 18-24 months, these are the only shoes that your little one will need for the first two years for indoors or out.

For a little extra pizazz, the pediped Couture Collection has the same great comfort and healthy foot development as the Originals but with eye-catching colors and shine. What fashinista's outfit wouldn't be complete next season with the new Aurelia - Silver Gladiator sandals (shown at left)? C'mon, the metallic fringe! Tiny feet are even cuter with fringe!

When your little one outgrows the Originals and Couture Collections, the pediped Flex line contains the perfect rubber soled shoes for growing feet. For ages 1 - 5+ years, these shoes even contain a special Flex Fit System that allows children to adjust the fit of their shoes and prolong the amount of time they can wear them. Is there a parent around that doesn't appreciate getting MORE use out of a pair of shoes?

In addition, pediped has revealed two great new features included in some of their new Flex footwear. Their DRYZ Technology, a specially-formulated, odor resistant insole that controls moisture and temperature, will rid your child of dirty, smelly shoes! These select Flex shoes are made out of Clarino, a wash-and-wear fabric that allows you to simply toss them in the washing machine for easy cleaning.

pediped's other new addition to their Flex Collection is their Memory Foam Technology, or MFT. Available in select sandals and the new ballet flat collection, the use of memory foam allows the shoes to mold to a child's foot and create a personalized, extremely comfortable insole. A memory foam pillow under my foot? Sounds pretty cushy to me!

Considering how happy I was with Big Sister E's pink Originals (she wore them all the way through crawling, little steps and into fully walking), how well they fit her feet and held up to her constant use... I couldn't help but purchase a pair for Little Sister B before she was even born. Fortunately for her, that just meant that as she outgrew her polka dot Giselle shoes, she had the next size ready and waiting.


Available in more than 3000 stores in the United States and 40 countries worldwide, pediped footwear has created the "next best thing to bare feet." Not only do their shoes provide style and comfort, but they promote healthy foot development as well. From birth until around age 5, shoes from pediped will keep your child's feet safe, secure and pretty darn good-looking. And, thanks to the generosity of pediped, one person will get to see for themselves, because...

One lucky person will win a pair of pediped Originals shoes of their own! The winner will select gender and size and pediped will choose the style! ARV $32!
