Pediped uses the latest technology, plus the highest quality materials and craftsmanship to create shoes for children that are designed to care for their feet from crawling, to those amazing first steps and into the toddler years. The philosophy of pediped has always been Comfort, Quality and Style, which is why pediped was one of the first children's shoe companies the American Podiatric Medical Association awarded their Seal of Acceptance for promoting healthy foot development.
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!
It is recommended to stay in Originals® as long as possible, but once your child is walking, he or she can transition to Grip ‘n’ Go
