Amazing to think that just 5 short months ago he took his first steps. Now he clambers happily up his slide, our grassy knoll, and anywhere his little feet and toes can get a grip! My mommy heart wants him to slow down and come back into my arms! But since he’s running around now, the best way to love him at this fast pace is make sure he has healthy development!
As someone who has a horrific time finding shoes that don’t make my feet scream for mercy (nevermind show some fashion sense!), I am definitely concerned with how my baby’s feet develop and grow.
I fell hard for pediped shoes earlier this year as a “first shoe” for the newly walking baby. Now my son’s favorite thing to do (anywhere, anytime) is “running!” Down hallways, church aisle, strawberry field rows. Can’t let go of that guy otherwise, he’s off!
He loves to pull his “Deak-ahs” (sneakers) out of the shoe basket whenever I tell him we’re getting in the car! His new favorites? These gray, red, and blue pediped – the Adrian pediped in the Flex line. So easy to put on, with all-natural rubber soles, and what I love best: Machine Washable! Now that he’s playing everywhere, it’s good to know I can clean these shoes up in a jiffy without worry!
The Flex style shoe from pediped uses the Flex Fit system – an insert that can reduce a shoe by almost a half size, extending the life of a pair of shoes. Just remove the insert when your child grows a bit and you can continue to wear the shoe!
Having just one boy, I know the pediped Adventure Line (outdoor shoe) is one I’ll keep an eye on, but for the girls, I can tell you the new pediped Fall/Winter 2011 line is full of metallic glitter, patent leather, and suede – get ready for holiday parties! The new line also has larger sizing in certain styles!
Pedipeds come in Original (soft-soled infant), Grip ‘n’ Go (transition to confident walking), and Flex (for solid strides) styles for each stage of a child’s walking development!
