No better way to start off the new school year on the right foot than with an amazing and adorable pair of new shoes, am I right!? Of course they've also gotta be comfy, durable, and good for our children's feet, which is why my family always runs to pediped, a company that was awarded the American Podiatric Medical Association Seal of Acceptance for the promotion of healthy foot development! They've sent us 3 pair of shoes in exchange for our review, and are also giving away a pair (winner's choice of size and design) in my $400 value Back to School Giveaway (enter to win here by 8/29/19)!!
We've done several reviews and giveaways of pediped shoes over the years, and I can honestly say every single pair has held up beautifully through my kids' heavy usage until outgrown, and then transitioned seamlessly into being well-loved great condition hand-me-down shoes! One of the fastest growing children's footwear brands in the United States, pediped is sold in over 750 stores in the US and 40 countries worldwide, with an offering of more than 120 designs in sizes US newborn through 6Y. They really are the cream of the crop, so when those iconic purple boxes arrive on our doorstep, we're all kicking our heels up with excitement!
This time around, I was really feeling the greys. The moment I laid eyes on the Flex Logan Silver boots with faux fur I just lit up, mostly because I knew my girls would literally squeal with joy when opening the boxes. And they did!! These sneaker boots have such a fun pattern, silver but also kind of iridescent. With faux laces (because let's face it, who has the patience to deal with 3 year olds trying to tie real laces in the morning rush to school!?) and a great big velcro strap on the top (with a velcro piece on the top of the fur tongue, to make sure they're super secure)! They feature man-made material and suede uppers, all-natural rubber soles, a breathable canvas lining, and 5 other color options in case silver isn't your child's cup of tea. Available in sizes 26 - 36 (9 - 4.5Y), they retail for $59.95 on their website and Amazon (affiliate link).
For my son, I opted for the Flex Dani Grey Orange sneakers which have a bit of a cute skater vibe, don't you think? Featuring man-made and mesh uppers and all-natural rubber soles. I'm all about nurturing my children's independence, with as little frustration (for them and me) as possible, so I'm just really loving the stretchy faux laces and chunky stylish velcro straps on all of their new shoes! Are you feeling me!? I'm not seeing this exact color on the website anymore, but you can find them on Amazon (affiliate link) or in 11 other color options in the Dani design on pediped's website, retailing for $59.95 in sizes 24 - 33 (7.5 - 2Y).
Both the Dani and Logan shoes are approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association for promoting healthy foot development, and feature pediped's Flex Fit System, meaning they come with removable inserts that can adjust the shoe nearly a half a size, meaning they will fit your child properly for longer. How's that for upping your bang for your buck!?
As I mentioned, pediped has over a hundred styles of shoes for babies through big kids. We're talking crib shoes, dress shoes, sneakers, sandals, boots, you name it! So head on over to their website to shop for your kiddo's next pair(s) of shoes!! And don't forget, you can win a pair in my $400 value Back to School giveaway ending 8/29!! Enter to win here!!
