I received product compensation from pediped in exchange for my honest review. Please know that all opinions expressed here are 100% my own! I only promote things that I truly love!
We’re already a few weeks into summer here in my neck of the woods, and my daughter and I are already kicking things off to a great start! We’ve filled almost every day of the week in our calendar with a fun activity for us to do together to get us out of the house and enjoying the world around us. Earlier this week we attended a fun little animal show in our community with lots of interesting and exotic animals. I just knew my toddler would be into it, because she’s an animal lover through and through!
But it wasn’t long after we arrived that she started getting a little restless. The animal show required children to stay seated and remain relatively calm once the animals were brought out so as to not startle them. Since the words “stay seated” and “remain calm” do not fit into my daughter’s vocabulary, she quickly began fidgeting and squirming and whining to leave. I knew she loved the animals, but what she really wanted to do was hit the ground running and play.
We stayed about halfway through the animal show before we quietly dipped out and loaded up in the car to head to a nearby playground so she could get some of that energy out that she had been bottling up. And sure enough, the moment we pulled up at the playground she squealed with joy and ran ahead of me to go check out the playground equipment.
One thing I’ve been so thankful for throughout my daughter’s toddlerhood is having high quality and functional shoes that will keep up with her busy little feet that are always on the go. When it comes to finding the perfect shoe for my little one to wear, I always prefer pediped – hands down!
pediped footwear is crafted from genuine leather and is approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association for promoting healthy foot development. pediped closely mimic the shape the natural shape of a child’s foot, so there’s no worry about little feet tripping over themselves because of an oddly shaped shoe. The Grip ‘N’ Go™ line from pediped was made specifically with toddlers in mind who have graduated from the early walking stage and have developed a much more confident on-the-go stride.
My little Sweet T has been rocking the pediped Grip ‘N’ Go™ shoes in Nikki White this summer. I selected these shoes because they’re extremely flexible, have just the right about of toe coverage to protect her little toes without being fully enclosed, plus they’re absolutely gorgeous! Her closet is primarily made up of pinks and bright colors, and these little shoes will match just about everything she owns! She can wear them on the playground with shorts and a t-shirt one day, and she can wear them with a sweet little dress to church the next!
These Grip ‘N’ Go™ shoes are made with with a plush Memory Foam Technology™ that acts like a custom insole that shapes perfectly to the foot and supports it in all of the right places. It prevents feet from slipping around inside the shoe, provides excellent absorption and also provides the proper arch support that children need. It’s hard to find a summertime shoe that has arch support, so these shoes are a real home run in my book!
These particular shoes are available in multiple colors and sizes (up to a size 7 for toddlers.) My daughter will very soon be growing into the Flex style of shoe for toddlers and bigger kids, which are available in sizes 6-kids to 6 youth.
The pediped Grip ‘N’ Go™ Nikki White retails for $49.95 and can be found at select retailers of purchased online. If you’ve got your eye on gorgeous pair of summer sandals, or if another pair of pediped footwear has caught your eye, make sure you download the free sizing tool to ensure that you get the proper size for your little one. From my personal experience with pediped, the sizing runs just a tiny bit small, so sizing your child’s foot before purchase is very important!
