I think shoes that allow for proper development of growing feet is really important. My mom was the one that always drilled that into my head years ago and now that I have kids of my own, I want to make sure they have proper shoes! I’ve written about pediped here before because they’re a go-to brand for us. They’re great for growing feet and they are all super cute, too! Actually, Ryan (our 4yo) has a number of shoes, but ALWAYS insists on wearing his pedipeds. If I try to put on anything else, he says “noooo, these aren’t comfortable, I want my brown ones!” True story.
Pediped is “the next best thing to bare feet” and they really focus on quality, comfort, and style while promoting healthy foot development. They have different styles of shoes based on your child’s age and what they need for their growing feet: Originals (0-24mo), Grip ‘n’ Go (9mo – 3yrs), and Flex (1-8yrs).
Rebecca recently received the “Bree” mary janes in Bubblegum from the Grip ‘n’ Go line to try out. Sooooo cute! She loves to put them on herself with the velcro strap. All natural rubber sole and a canvas top… they’re comfy and adorable. I thought I’d give her a little room to grow into them because I wanted them to fit this summer, too. She’s in a size 6 right now, but I got her these in the pediped size 23 (which is a US size 7). They are definitely big on her and I’m sure the size 22 would have been a great fit. Thankfully the velcro strap can be pulled over a bit and they work just fine. We wear with socks, too!
These also come in a pretty “Seashore” color! There are so many adorable shoes at pediped (for girls AND boys) and I’m always shopping to see what’s new. Ryan will be getting some new pediped sandals soon for the summer, too!
We headed outside on the first semi-warm day this “spring” (weeks ago – and now what’s with the snow in mid-April?!). She was trying out her new shoes so I shot a quick video of the cuteness She’s stomping around because I asked her about her shoes, haha, silly girl.
