Slippery Soles
I thought I loved these shoes, but when my son tried to crawl and walk in them, he would just slip and fall and bang himself on the floor etc. I will be returning them and getting a different soled shoe. My daughter wore a pair of pediped while learning to walk and we never had an issue though.... hmmm... nice looking shoes though

Sizing Chart Wrong!!!!
I'm soooo upset about the shoes not fitting my little one. I went thru the process of printing out your sizing chart, and measuring my little ones feet to insure this wouldn't happen. His little foot measured 22in, which on your guide indicates 18-24mo size shoes. He is only 10mo. old, but he has always been big for his age so I figured I'd trust your guidelines. Well, they're huge on him! I will reorder him the correct size because I do believe in your product, my daughters first pair of walking shoes were pedipeds...but now I'll have to wait until you credit my account this return which you state could be 3-4 weeks.

We are so sorry for this issue. If your printer is not scaled correctly the sizing chart will not read correctly. Again we apologize for the issue.
Love them so much I'm buying another pair
My Ryon has worn these nearly every day since he was 7 months old (he's now 19 months) and they look like new. I will now be ordering the same one's in the next size up as he's outgrown them. We love them so much. Worth every penny. His other casual shoes are stiff and he walks funny in them. These are like slippers. He moves much more naturally.

Construction has gone down hill
I give these a 2 out of 5 because the inner sole has fallen out of these shoes. I always bought pedipeds for my first born son and the quality was far superior. I am not sure what happened since then but now it seems like they are cutting corners to save money. The pedipeds my firstborn wore had an inner sole that was stitched down all along the edges. So the sole stayed put! These are adhered with some cheap type of glue and after just wearing them 4 or 5 times, the sole has pulled out of them. Now the secondary sole that was underneath the leather sole is also pulling up. For the price, this should not be happening. And it makes me even more mad that this was clearly a conscious design change from the way they used to be made. Yet another example of a huge company who produced a great product and is just surviving on the "name brand" it built up previously. Very disappointing.

Cute shoes
I really like these shoes, they are perfect for my son who just took his first steps last week. Right now he's taking 3-4 steps and also crawling. I really wanted a shoe that was bendable yet sturdy for when he's walking full time. I just had him measured 2 days ago and he's measuring at a 5.5 US and that works with the 18-24 month shoe size. I like the style, it works great with shorts and jeans and I also like it because it fits my personal taste of no crazy colors or cartoon characters. What's also convenient is the shoe opens widely so it's easy to get on a squirmy 1 year old. My only reason for giving it 4 out of 5 stars is the leather lining inside the shoe is loose. It's the part that his foot rests on, when you take his shoe off, the whole thing comes out with his foot. I'm worried about him taking his shoes off without me noticing and then him yanking the leather lining out of the shoe and possibly eating it...he's a toddler, they put everything in their mouths. That's my one issue. I think I'll find some sort of leather adhesive and stick it down myself, it's no big deal but I think pediped should look into this.

Love the orange stripes!
We bought these for our 11 month son as he is just learning to walk, & we wanted proper shoes to help his feet develop properly. The best thing about Pediped shoes is that they are great quality, very well made & stylish too! Totally worth the high price tag in my opinion. Plus they will last a long time as he has lots of room to grow, & we bought 12-18 months. We have had so many compliments with these shoes, & with the others as well (we bought 4 for our son & also 4 as birthday gifts). Another thing I'd like to mention is that their customer service is fantastic. I placed my order so that I could receive these shoes in time for a birthday party we were attending. Due to the long weekend, we weren't due to receive our package until after the party, but after hearing my dilemma the customer service agent (Angelica) ensured me that I would receive my package on time, & I did! She was always quick to reply to my emails & very courteous & professional. I will continue to buy Pediped shoes for my son & also as gifts!

Frederick shoes - look so cool!
We LOVE these shoes and my 1 year old son keeps trying to put them on his feet. The only down-side for us is that initially they were not wide enough for his chubby feet but they are now the perfect fit, perhaps because they were his first shoes? Highly recommend them.

Love these shoes
Our little guy has only worn Pediped shoes. Being a spring baby he enjoyed bare feet for the first several months of his life. Once it got cooler we started trying out shoes. Our first pair were the Adrian originals and we loved them. The held up even after he started crawling and eventually walking. The leather soles are perfect for new walkers and fit great to his feet. And I'm happy because they're so cute!

Great first shoes
I purchased these as my son's first walking shoes as he's learning to take steps by himself. I bought other cheaper shoes and he seemed to be having some trouble walking in them. He does great in his Pedipeds though. He is almost 10 months and I got him the 12-18 month size. Although he has plenty of room to grow, they are not bulky or cumbersome. I liked the neutral color of the brown. They match all of his outfits. I'm very pleased with my purchase and glad I invested in quality shoes for his developing feet.

Inner soles come out
Good shoes but the inner soles come out, also the ones I got, the layer under the sole was damaged. Now I have to return these shoes, in the process I lost $5 for shipping that is not refundable. So chose some other shoes

Cute and great!
Ordered these for my son and he loves them! My first son wore pedipeds all the time but my second one has a bigger foot and needed some cute new shoes. They are perfect fit!

Amazing!
Love these shoes and brand in general. We have 3 pairs now and love them all. My sons feet are chunky and these shoes are so easy to put on. They make it easy for him to walk in also. I highly recommend. They do run on the smaller size though. So get the bigger size.

Perfect pre-shoes!
These are the only shoes that my son is happy to wear. They are so nice, soft, light, easy-to-wear , strong and resistant. Even though ,I would like to call your kind attention to a little problem: the inner sole always come off. The shipping is very fast and convenient.

Coming apart
My son will be 12 months old in 2 weeks. He is average-to-small for his age. I bought these shoes about 1 month ago. He is already growing out of them! Also, the insoles are coming out and he has only worn them a dozen times or less. The outside construction seem to be quality.

I was disappointed because these shoes did not fit my son. He is 14 months old and I got a 12-18 month size but they didn't fit. I wish your website had some sort of size chart so that you can get a better idea.
