Do you have a preschooler that never slows down? I do! Kiernan is starting preschool in the fall and I swear he never stops..running… jumping.. flipping.. everything! He is very hard on shoes and it seems like we just buy a pair and he is already growing out of them. He is mostly concerned about how they look but with growth I am worried about how they feel and the health of his feet. Pediped has all stages taken care of for us!

Choosing The Right Shoes
Sometimes I buy shoes because they are cute or cheap, not just for the kids but for myself too. All to often when I wear them my feet are killing me. I get blisters, cramped toes, and whatever else. I don’t like it and I’m sure my kids don’t want to suffer either. With Pediped picking the right shoes for kids isn’t very hard, they have a printable shoe sizer on their website. Just print it out and make sure it’s scaled correctly, place your child’s foot on and mark at the toe… be sure to measure both feet often times their feet are different sizes and you will need the larger size shoes.
Shoes For Just the Right Stage
Pediped has mastered shoes and the shoe needs of children from first steps to size 6 youths. Pediped’s Step 1 is the Originals: these soft soled shoes are made for those 1st steps, they mimic barefoot walking. Step 2 is the Grip ‘n’ Go shoes: these shoes have a very flexible sole but offer a greater line of foot protection. Step 3 is Flex Shoes: this stage features cushioned arch support and soft rubber soles that promote proper foot development, some of these are the Flex Fit System which allows you to remove the insole to elongate wear time for the child. Kiernan loves how comfortable his shoes are. I love that they many pairs of Pediped shoes are MACHINE washable!
