Whenever I am shopping for shoes for the ladybug, there are several features that I seek: Quality, comfort, functionality, and of course I want the shoes to be as cute as possible. Pediped has all of these qualities and then some.
They have one of the biggest varieties on kid’s shoes and the Pediped shoes are designed to promote healthy foot development.
Pediped was one of the first children’s footwear companies to be awarded with the American Podiatric Medical Association Seal of acceptance for promoting healthy foot development. The great thing about Pediped, besides what I just mentioned, is the fact that they have such a great variety of designs that there is a shoe for you no matter what are you looking for.
They have shoe sizes from newborn to age 2+ (original design) and their rubber- soled shoes for children 1-6 years of age (flex). Pediped has recently launched a new line of athletic footwear! Engineered for comfort and built for speed, pediped's new line of athletic footwear has an ultra-light weight of just five ounces (based on a size 27), flex grooves for maximum flexibility and are machine washable.
The new line of waterproof cold weather boots, created as a result of customer demand, have a temperature rating of -20 degrees, self-cleaning soles and a waterproof exterior.
The Fall Winter 2012 Collection also includes more than 80 new design offerings across pediped’s existing three lines: Originals®, Grip 'n' Go™ and Flex®. The new designs feature pediped’s signature comfortable fit along with a broadened range of colors and fabrics that includes navy, metallics, three-dimensional details and suede.
The lucky ladybug had the chance to try one of the shoes of the new athletic shoe line. The Flex Neptune - Silver, Raspberry. The ladybug started kindergarten this year and the school has been very specific on the kids only wearing sneakers…Which I was not aware of until she started, so I needed a pair of good quality, durable tennis shoes for her and that is where Pediped came in to play.
The Flex Neptune is a stylish light weight design that features a Velcro closure that allows little ones like my little lady that is not trained on how to tie her shoes yet, to put on and off her own shoes giving them a feeling of independence that is really important for them at this age.
The lightweight Neptune features flex grooves which provides extreme flexibility, and a breathable mesh upper allows for airflow….awesome for weather places like Florida, but also for extra comfort.
The shoes also feature a heel cushion that protects against impact and distributes pressure evenly. The Flex Fit System™ feature, allows kids to adjust the fit of their shoes….Since the ladybug spends about 8 hours a day in her shoes, this is certainly one of my favorite features as this specific feature allows the extended use of the shoes throughout the day.
Of course the school is not the only place where the Flex performs wonderfully as the bug loves wearing them on the playground also. The Flex Neptune has a retail price of 59.00 and on sale for 49.00 on the Pediped site right now.
