Finding a good pair of shoes for your baby or toddler isn't exactly easy, or cheap. They can't tell you if something is pinching or if the shoes feel too big or too small. If they are too grippy they might trip 'em up, if they're not grippy enough, they might slip. And then there's the fact that they grow out of them in the blink of an eye. GAH! It's enough to drive a sane parent, well, INSANE!!
There are a handful of trusted, loved, and affordable brands of children's shoes out there, and I'm here to tell you about one of them (and also to offer you the chance to win TWO PAIRS of them below!!). So let's get started, shall we??

I recently got my hands on pediped's new Grip 'n' Go Orion sneakers for my almost 2 year old. My first impression? THEY ARE LIGHT AS AIR!!! Seriously, I couldn't believe how lightweight they are. A quick peak at their website tells me they're all of 5 ounces. WHAT!?? We got the silver/orange color, so my little guy thinks he's got astronaut feet now. Haha! They also come in "ocean" (a beautiful blue / green / black combo). Here's what else blew my mind: they're water-safe and MACHINE WASHABLE!!! Ahhhhh it's like they read my mind. Guess my toddler isn't the only one who likes jumping into muddy puddles all. the. TIME! Anyway, here's my guy modeling them for ya:
