pediped footwear proved mom wrong- in the best of ways!
In full disclosure, I had two immediate reservations about pediped, a brand I had little personal experience with. The 1st was price. Henry’s little feet grow so fast and he is SO rough on shoes, that I was concerned the price was a bit on the higher end. The second, was the online size chart is so expansive, that I thought, surely I am going to order him the wrong size!
I could not have been more wrong in my judgment. I was so wrong in fact, that I made sure to show these shoes to my sister-n-laws’ with similarly aged children, right away.

Quality features. The durable quality of pediped materials (and the fact many are washable- huge bonus) will extend the life of these shoes, therefore making the cost even more reasonable!
Sizing. A half size range (via both UK/ US charts) ensured a great fit and again extends the life of wear with little feet!
Bottom Line: I am so thrilled with the selection I made for Henry! So thrilled, I need a pair for my older son, too! We are absolutely loving to Flex in style Sahara, part of the Adventure Line. It’s water safe, washable, eco-friendly and rugged! Featuring a lot of flex in the footbed, extra cushion in heel- PLUS reflective, secure, velco straps! The Sahara is very stylish and Henry LOVES to wear them! I have NO reservations in recommending these shoes!
