Did you know that approximately 70% of foot problems come from wearing the wrong shoes? Most people don’t know this, but shoes are one of the most important purchases you can make, especially for a developing child. Wearing shoes that are too tight or rigid can actually alter the shape of a child’s feet, creating all sorts of future issues. The same goes with hand-me-down shoes that have already been shaped and “formed.” And with foot problems come back problems, and then it’s just a matter of time before everything gets “out of whack.” So choosing the right shoes for your child is not only desirable but necessary. I look at it as a tiny investment in my child’s future wellness.
Pediped shoes are specifically engineered to promote healthy foot development in infants, toddlers and children (up to approximately 8 years old) at their targeted stage of development from their first steps and beyond. They are comfortable, flexible, durable, stylish shoes with exceptional quality and optimal fit, and are endorsed by the American Podiatric Medical Association. Certain styles are even machine-washable!
From memory foam insoles (that act like a custom insole) to Flex Fit inserts (for a more customized and snug fit and prolonged wearability), pediped knows the latest in footwear technology. That is why all 3 of our kids have worn pediped as their first pair of shoes. And now that our oldest is into sports and all things active, it was important for us to have the best athletic shoe for his growing feet – pediped’s new athletic line. The new Ultra Lite Technology is everything an athletic shoe should be for a child:
- Light weight
- Flex grooves on the soles (provide flexibility and natural foot movement)
- Heel cushion (for even pressure distribution and impact protection)
- Breathable mesh uppers (for dry and comfortable feet)
All three of my kids love their new shoes! My infant, who was not accustomed to wearing any shoes at all, giggles each time we put them on and never thinks of removing them (they feel that natural). And because of his current wiggly, on-the-go and never-stay-still phase, I like that they are easy and fast to put on and take off. My daughter adores her new boots “just like mommy’s” and has never complained about any discomfort. She can even comfortably run and play in them all day. My oldest actually prefers his new pediped tennis shoes to all other shoes.
Check out their new athletic line and their adorable Fall/Winter line (including cold weather boots!) and keep your kids fashionably comfortable this season.
