My 18-month old son loves shoes. Actually, let me correct myself. Hubby loves buying him shoes! So much that there were 2 consecutive weekends that he bought 2 pairs of shoes! Most of the time, he’d just go to Foot Locker or Finish Line or Nordstrom Rack and look at some of the shoes that would fit our baby. But he has never bought a Pediped so when I had the chance to review one, I was excited!
Pediped has always designed shoes that help develop healthy feet. Comfort, quality and style are the 3 things they always prioritize when creating their products. They have even been awarded the American Podiatric Medical Association Seal of Acceptance because of this. And as a mom, it’s a big thing to know that these shoes are actually doing my son’s feet some good.
The particular shoe I received from pediped is the Grip n Go Christopher (Navy). It also comes in Chocolate Brown and costs $48 on the pediped website. It’s a sneaker style shoe with velcro straps. It has a leather and suede upper and all-natural rubber sole. It applies the G2 Technology and it includes “a soft rubber sole, rounded edges that mimic the natural shape of a child’s foot, heel stability, and a soft toe box that allows toes to curl and grip the floor“.
When I tried it on my son and it fit him well, I was so happy. I let him run around the house wearing the shoes and it seemed as though he was having so much fun. The shoes were so light! The other shoes that hubby bought him that were really expensive were also really heavy. And for a baby who’s always running, those other shoes caused my son to trip so often. But not with pediped. That’s why I love these shoes so much!
