My 1-year-old son wears nothing but Pediped originals toddler shoes, I don’t trust any other brand on his precious feet. This is his second Pediped Originals review and I’m still just as thrilled with them as I was the first time. Sean’s foot is growing fast and I needed a new pair of shoes in a slightly larger size, Sean is wearing the 12-18 (medium) size now. Originals are recommended for 0 to 24 months of age. There is a nice selection of different styles, colors, and cost $35.00. If I could I would buy a pair in every color and style. I was recently sent the Jake style in Navy for my son to try. I knew he would enjoy wearing them, just like he enjoyed the last pair.
The soft, flexible soles of Originals® are recommended by pediatricians and podiatrists because they allow children to closely mimic barefoot walking. Originals® are made of the highest quality leather on the market today and feature a soft foam insert between leather layers. They are so comfortable, your child will not want to take them off!
My son is talking strides and standing unassisted. I know now more than ever it’s important to choose shoes that will still allow him to curl is toes and grip while he tries to walk. So many shoes made for babies and toddlers restrict walking in that the toe box of the shoe is not flexible enough to allow little toes to curl under. Pediped Originals are great for beginner walkers and feature leather soles for maximum flexibility. Our entire house has wood flooring and tile throughout, that’s why the diamond leather tread is so important. It’s very slip resistant yet still crafted completely of high-quality, non-toxic leather that allows little toes to move, grip, and feel the floor.
Originals for Pediped are the only shoes my son will keep on his feet. I’ve bought a few pairs of sandals for him and the moment I get them on his feet I turn around and they are off.
Improved More Slip Resistant Sole for Pediped Originals
The new diamond leather tread is more slip resistant!! The sole includes the highest quality leather on the market today plus a soft foam insert. Children’s feet are protected while they are on the move.
