On the plus side, at least I know that whenever I pull out my shoes and boots from previous years that they will always fit. After all, my size 8 feet will still be the same size 8 feet year after year.
As for my kids... not exactly. As any parent knows, it can often feel like you're continually having to check to see if your children's toes are scrunched or if their heel has enough room, as their feet just seem to grow and grow.
Fortunately, we always know that whenever their is a change in season and new footwear is therefore needed, my kids can count on the comfort, style, and versatility that we know, love and have come to depend on from pediped footwear.
The unparalleled quality, durability and distinctive, fashionable styles — with new ones being added all the time — from pediped are perfect for everything from casual to dressy occasions. No matter what age or stage of development your child is in, from infant to age 7, pediped has a pair of shoes that will keep their feet safe, healthy and looking good at the same time.
This year pediped debuted its Fall/Winter 2012 Collection with an innovative line of athletic shoes featuring Ultra Light Technology, a collection of waterproof cold weather boots and more than 80 new design offerings.
First, for the youngest crowd, the Originals.
The Originals line of soft-soled flexible infant shoes is recommended by pediatricians and podiatrists because the shoe's design closely mimics barefoot walking. Priced from $35 to $43 in sizes for children 0-24 months, there have been 15 new styles added to the Originals collection this season and a great new non-slip sole.
Highlights include Hazel, a suede boot for girls, and Betty and Stella for more formal events. For boys, casual sneaker shoes Frederick and Jett are comfortable and stylish options.
|L-R: Hazel, Frederick, Stella|
Next up, the adorable Grip 'n' Go.
Grip 'n' Go footwear is made with all the benefits of Originals, but with special G2 Technology for active toddlers that are transitioning to walking with a more confident stride. Retailing between $48 and $52, this line is available for children 9 months to 3 years in age.
New for the Fall/Winter season, Sadie is a casual style with whimsical details and is available in navy, pink and brown. Isabella Red and Naomi, two Flex and Originals customer favorites, have been added to the Grip 'n' Go girls' line. More than six new designs have been added to the boys Grip 'n' Go line including casual athletic styles Jax, Jett and Frederick.

Finally, pediped Flex is the ultimate shoe for confident walkers who have developed a solid, natural stride. With more than 75 styles, the pediped Fall/Winter collection features a style for every occasion and personality.
With more back-to-school options than ever before, pediped Flex (ranging in price from $47-$79 in EU sizes 20-33) are perfect to head to the classroom in style. Vail, a slip-on shoe available in brown and black, and Hayden, made with breathable mesh, are new boys styles that can handle both the playground and the classroom.
At the same time, Bianca, Bailey and Dakota, available in classic colors, are durable and styled to match school uniforms for girls. Even though Big Sister E doesn't wear a uniform to school, she has still been loving the Bianca in black for weekdays as well as weekends. The comfort, the shiny appearance, the Flex Fit System — it all comes together to result in a really great pair of shoes!
We're really happy with the way that these shoes have a dressy appearance, yet a flexible fit like a tennis shoe. They're the best of both worlds!
New to the pediped brand, their innovative line of washable athletic shoes, made with Ultra-Light Technology, are specially designed to support children's growing feet. Consisting of 12 styles for both boys and girls, this collection is engineered for comfort and built for speed by featuring flex grooves to support natural foot movement and heal cushioning, are extremely flexible and are machine washable.
To round out pediped's new additions, their line of cold weather boots was created as a result of customer demand. Featuring rugged, self-cleaning soles, a waterproof exterior, a gusseted tongue and a temperature rating of -20°C, this line provides the ultimate in durability, style and comfort. Styles include Cruz, a colorful boot for boys and girls, Harper, a stylish boot for girls, and Spencer, a comfortable ankle boot for boys.
