pediped Originals Footwear: Paving the Way for New Walkers

03/09/2009 at 11:30 AM ET

Our baby girl has started walking and is happily sporting the Addison Mary Janes ($32) from pediped‘s Originals line — for newborns up to age 24 months. We love the Addison’s cheery neopolitan stripes (goes with everything) and the cute little pink bows. The hand-stitched soles are thick and made up of two layers of leather and 3mm of foam, so our little girl’s feet are protected from the elements and also grip the ground nicely. Other great features of the Addison include a fabric upper and velcro closures.

pediped’s Originals has been recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association for being beneficial to children’s growing feet. pediped’s Flex Line  is for children ages 1-5 and comes in larger sizes than the Originals and have rubber soles. The Addison’s also come in the Flex style. We also love the Giselle Mary Janes. You can get it in either a brown or  fuschia leather upper in their Originals Line and in their Flex Line, as well as a new sandal in their Flex Line in brown or white — from pediped’s  new spring/summer line.

I love these shoes but my only comment is that they don’t have really cute ones for boys!!! The camo one is super cute and we have that but the rest are not nearly as cute as the girl shoes! Bummer.

My 13 month old LOVES her pediped originals. She has four pairs (Isabella in brown and white, Grace (adorable with the polka dots!), and McKenna). In her mind she’s never fully dressed without her shoes! Every morning she grabs her shoes and sits down, asking me to put them on. Sometimes she tries to put them on herself, but she just ends up dropping them on her foot. Hehe. It’s so cute. She’s only ever really liked these shoes. She’s had other “shoes”, but she’s just not interested in any but pediped.

And I love how well these shoes protect her. She can run around outside on many surfaces in them. I had wanted to leave her in socks at daycare, but even with the nonskid socks she was slipping and hitting her head. One day she hit her head pretty hard. It’s been these shoes everyday since then. I’m amazed at how great the grip the ground. She hasn’t hit her head once since she started wearing these all day!

Excellent, excellent shoes! I can’t say enough about them!

Those shoes are so pretty, I would like a pair for myself!
