Skipping Around Town in pedipeds (review)

13 Jun

Picture 1120130612-142118.jpgLast week I received a reminder note from my daughter’s teacher that sandals without a back are not permitted at school. My daughter loves sandals and the couple she has don’t have a back.  Luckily, I recently received a pair of pediped Vivian sandals for review. I loved pedipeds when my girls were learning to walk because not only do they have many great styles to choose from, they come in various stages from infant with a soft sole to a sole with a little more stability and grip for the little one’s taking their first steps. After they outgrew their last pair, I never realized the sizes went as high as a 10/11, which my girls wear now. Pediped sizes start at newborn and go all the way up to 8 years old.
The pediped system , the three steps below, is available for boys and girls:

First Steps:

Next Steps:

• The Grip ‘n’ Go™ line is made with all the benefits of the Originals®, but adds special feature G2 technology for the unbalanced toddler transitioning into walking more confidently.

• The Grip ‘n’ Go™ line will retail at $48, and will be available for children ranging from nine months to three years of age.

Big Steps:

• Flex® is the ultimate shoe for an established walker who has developed a confident, natural stride. The Flex® line offers more than 50 styles covering an array of color options ranging from pastels and neons to signature browns and black.

• The innovative line of washable athletic shoes, made with Ultra Light Technology™, is especially designed to support children’s growing feet. Featuring flex grooves to support natural foot movement and heal cushioning, this line provides maximum flexibility while remaining light as air.

• Flex® styles range in price from $39 to $59 and are available in EU sizes 20-33 (available sizes vary between styles).

20130612-142106.jpgWhat I love about the pediped Vivian Flex sandal:

  • Ideal for active girls while still looking adorable with the dressed my daughter loves to wear.
  • Velcro straps made it easy for my daughter to get on and off on her own.
  • Able to scoot or go run in the park after school without having to go home and change shoes.
  • Closed back, perfect for school or camp this summer
  • Durable
  • Reasonably priced: $35.99
