When I began planning my Anniversary Bash, I knew I wanted to include those companies that I personally think are really great. And out of all the products my household used in the past year, one that definitely withstood the test of time as a favorite was none other than pediped footwear. Both of my daughters wore the pairs that we own for as long as possible and truly learned to walk while wearing these shoes.
Plus, they were just so darn cute.

There are a lot of soft-soled baby shoes out there, but pediped just has a little something extra. Combine their unique, fashionable styles with their exceptional quality and their unparalleled comfort and it really is no wonder that they are one of the biggest names in children's footwear across the country. And whichever age or stage of development your child is in, from infant to toddler, pediped has a pair of shoes that will keep their feet safe, healthy and looking good at the same time.
Have a crawler who is just learning to walk? The pediped Originals line encourages a natural foot shape and the slip-resistant leather sole, soft foam insert and flexible uppers all contribute to making these shoes perfect for developing little feet. With styles available that are both dressy or casual in sandals, mary janes or sneakers, the Originals come in size 0 - 24 months and range from $16 - $32 to completely outfit those little feet for their first two years.
Like the Originals but want something a little more? The pediped Couture collection has the same benefits but with head-turning colors and shine. Why not add a little gladiator fashion to a miniature wardrobe with metallic fringe sandals for $42?
After having outgrown the Originals and Couture Collections, the pediped Flex line feature high quality, fine leather and a soft, flexible rubber sole for confident walkers and their natural stride. Designed for ages 1 - 5+, these shoes provide maximum flexibility and shock absorption as well as pediped's Flex Fit System to actually adjust for a custom fit and prolong their use. In sizes 5 - 12.5 for anywhere from $15 - $52, this collection is perfect for all aspects of the toddler years.
In addition, many of the Flex collection include the great new features that pediped recently revealed. Their DRYZ Technology, a specially-formulated, odor-resistant insole allows the shoes to be simply thrown in the washing machine for easy cleaning. Or, for extreme comfort, select footwear from pediped includes Memory Foam Technology, or MFT, to really allow the shoes to mold to a child's foot. I'd love a pair in my size!
Finally, debuting in time for fall, pediped will introduce a line of Grip 'n' Go shoes that are similar to the Originals but with a specialized soft rubber sole and rounded edges. This collection bridges the gap between their adorable footwear designed for pre-walkers and those for children with a strong stride. In sizes 4 - 7, the Grip 'n' Go line retail for $45 and will be available for shipping this August.
Clearly, we're big fans of pediped footwear. Available throughout the United States and in 40 countries worldwide, they really have created the "next best thing to bare feet." For the first five years of childhood, you can depend on their stylish and comfortable shoes to promote healthy foot development and keep your child's feet safe and stylish. What more is there?
