Like many other people I seem to get rather nostalgic around December/January. On the one hand you look forward to everything the new year has in store for you, on the other hand you look back at the year that is behind you and how much has happened. A year ago our littlest one was only 4 months old, a gorgeous chubby baby who I carried around wherever I went. Now she is a cheeky 16 month old, talking all day and running around non stop, I guess it is what older siblings do to you. And proper walking and running asks for proper shoes, so just like the twins she has been fitted with some Pediped shoes.
Sold in over 40 countries worldwide Pediped shoes are known as the ‘next best thing to bare feet’ and are awarded the American Podiatric Medical Association Seal of Acceptance for the promotion of healthy foot development. My daughter has been stepping around in the soft soled Pediped Originals, recommended by pediatricians and podiatrists because they closely mimic barefoot walking.
What I love about the Pediped Originals is that the sole is not ultra thin and floppy (a real issue when walking outside), instead it features two layers of high quality leather and a soft foam insert so it is both flexible and protective at the same time. Together with the adjustable velcro strap this makes for a supportive fit that is perfect for growing feet. The velcro strap allows us to put the shoes on as tight or loose as needed, ideal for my daughter who’s chubby feet are often bothered by eczema.
The Pediped Originals are available in boys and girls styles in sizes 0-6, 6-12, 12-18 and 18-24 months. Children can wear the Pediped Originals for as long as they fit, depending on the child this will be around two years of age. The next step up will be the Pediped Grip ‘n Go, I can’t wait to see what gorgeous new designs are available when my little girl is ready to move up to this next size.
