pediped Originals® are the first step in the pediped® footwear system and the best first shoes your child will ever wear. When children learn to walk, they tend to shuffle, so it is important for their feet to feel the floor. Doctors recommend shoes with soft leather soles because they most closely mimic barefoot walking and do not force children to change their natural stride.
Originals® feature soft, flexible leather soles and a roomy toebox so feet can move, grip, and feel the floor. This way, little feet can grow properly and develop strength, musculature, and the grasping action of the toes. Originals® closely resemble the natural shape of the foot and are so comfortable your child will not want to take them off!
We encourage children to stay in Originals® as long as possible, but once your child is walking, he or she can transition to Grip ‘n’ Go
pediped Grip 'n' Go™ are the perfect shoes for a toddler transitioning from early walking to walking with a more confident stride. Grip 'n' Go™ are made with all the benefits of Originals® but with special G2 Technology™ for active toddlers. G2 Technology™ includes a specialized 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.
Grip 'n' Go™ are great for indoor and outdoor wear and provide active toddlers the ideal combination of protection and flexibility as they improve their walking ability. Once your child is walking confidently, he or she is ready for pediped Flex®.
pediped Flex® is the big step in the pediped footwear system and the ultimate shoe for confident walkers who have developed a solid, natural stride. Flex® combine everything you could want in a rubber soled shoe: high quality materials, soft and flexible soles, and adorable styles.
Each pair uses advanced technology to maximize the flexibility and absorb shock in the heel. The uniquely engineered density of the rubber soles ensures they flex to their maximum capacity.
Most Flex® styles include the Flex Fit System™, which provides a customizable fit with the use of additional insoles. These can be inserted for a snugger fit at the beginning and then removed as the foot grows. The Flex Fit System™ can extend the life of a pair of shoes up to two months!
pediped Flex® are the perfect, stylish choice for all-day wear and non-stop comfort.
