It’s back to school time, and the weather is finally turning cool here in Michigan, where we had a whopping 5 months of summer this year due to the drought and heat waves. We lined up a Pediped kids shoe review to give you all a few more ideas for great shoes for fall, winter, and spring, since Pediped is not only one of the few companies that offers a line of sturdy shoes with flexible soles up through the preschooler years, but also just developed a line of athletic shoes for small children. (See what former Major League Baseball player Tom Glavine has to say about the shoes here.) We checked out some of their athletic-looking girls’ shoes, which are a combo Mary Jane velcro and athletic running shoe style. I was delighted to discover that they are machine washable! They are also well-made, and with a flexible sole that’s plenty hard enough to keep rocks on the playground from bumping Baby Girl’s feet. Just perfect. These particular shoes also have vents in the sides, so I think she’ll wear them in the spring when she grows into them a bit and when it’s heating up, possibly for another whopper of a summer here in the who-unplugged-the-freezer North.
What did Baby Girl think of her Pediped shoes? Well, I asked her. Check out her little tap dance number and her favorite feature of the shoes in our 29 Diapers Pediped Shoes Review video. And if you are thinking of picking up a pair of these, you should know they come wrapped in star cellophane paper inside a nice shoe box, which makes for a nice gift. Baby Girl kept opening the box, putting her shoes on, and then wrapping it all up in the star paper so she could do it all over again and saying, “My present!”
You can check out the full line of Pediped shoes for babies through kids 7-8 years old at Pediped’s website, where you can also sign up for updates to stay in the loop on new styles and sales.
