pediped, a brand renowned for their comfortable and fashionable kids’ shoes, recently debuted their Fall/Winter 2012 Collection with an innovative line of athletic shoes featuring Ultra Light Technology’¢, a collection of waterproof cold weather boots and more than 80 new design offerings.
Now that my baby is walking, I have been looking for a sturdy shoe for her, and we have been loving the durable and strong pediped shoes that are both engineered for comfort and built for speed. Their new line of athletic footwear is also a great addition to their shoe catalog that is ultra-light weight of just five ounces (based on a size 27), has flex grooves for maximum flexibility and are machine washable. The new line of waterproof cold weather boots, created as a result of customer demand, have a temperature rating of -20 degrees, self-cleaning soles and a waterproof exterior. The new athletic styles and the new cold weather boots are great new styles for school, the holiday, etc.
The Fall Winter 2012 Collection also includes more than 80 new design offerings across pediped’s existing three lines: Originals®, Grip ‘n’ Go’¢ and Flex®. The new designs feature pediped’s signature comfortable fit along with a broadened range of colors and fabrics that includes navy, metallics, three-dimensional details and suede.
We tested out the adorable Originals Sadie – Navy and I loved how this Mary Jane-style shoe comfortable held my daughter’s foot while providing a sturdy and soft bottom so that she could freely move around. I also really appreciated the sweet and whimsical design complete with green and red flowers.
- The Originals® line of soft-soled flexible infant shoes is recommended by pediatricians and podiatrists because the shoe’s design closely mimics barefoot walking.
- Fifteen new styles are added this season. Highlights include Hazel, a suede boot for girls, and Betty and Stella for more formal events. For boys, casual sneaker shoes Frederick and Jett are comfortable and stylish options.
