Cute but straps too short for wide feet
The shoes were cute and well made but we had to send them back - the velcro straps were very short (about 2/3rds of the other pediped shoes we've bought) and we just couldn't close them over my son's fairly wide feet. Disappointing as this would be an easy design issue to fix.
Overall Fit: too small

nice shoe, but seems to run small
My son received a pair of these for christmas, and they look really nice, but they did not fit as expected. He is a 27 in another model of pediped brand shoes, but in this style the shoe barely fits him even with the inserts taken out. Also, as an adult who exclusively wears barefoot style shoes, I wish the sole were not so thick and rigid. I am hoping it will get better as they are worn, but the fact that they come so rigid is disappointing in a shoe that is supposed to be the next best thing to bare feet. since the thicker, rigid soles do not allow the foot to move naturally! The younger child version of the pediped shoes is more true to the barefoot style - we use those with my daughter, and i wish that sort of sole were available for older kids

Excellent as always!
I'm a huge fan of Pediped shoes and this one didn't disappoint either. They're very smart looking (we have the white ones) and my son reported that they're comfortable and fast :) I'm sure they will stay that way for a long time!

Runs big
Great shoe. Ran a bit big even though we measured our son's foot so we had to return it and get a full size smaller.

Charleston White sneakers
They are very nice sneakers. Seem like they are a quality shoe but def a snug fit if child wears an orthotic in shoe. I even ordered a size up & removed insert but snug. I think I'll stick to New Balance for adequate width with orthotic.

not as good
I have been buying Pediped shoes for my sons for three years, mostly from Zappos.com. My sons enjoy riding a bike and drag their feet on the ground when they want to stop on their balance bikes. I had been very happy with the quality, comfort, and durability of the shoes until I bought these ones. The strap design is different from the older darker models. I didn't mind at first until I tried to put them on with lightly thicker socks on my son. The straps don't come any where near to close so they keep on come off. Also the center piece is sawed on one side that the whole shape of shoe shifts to one side that my son walked funny sometimes. I almost wanted a refund on these shoes, but it took some time to find out all of these and now my son needs a new pair of shoes. I see Pediped has gone back to the older design of the straps that I will give it a second chance. I won't purchase these even if they were 70% off.

Very classy
A pair of very classy shoes which my son loves to wear. Leather did get a bit yellowish from the sand, otherwise perfect. Only in the later months when cleaning them I realised one side of the upper heel was faulty, pushing on the inside causing traction on the Achilles tendon. But I haven't heard any complaint from my boy, only the inner fabric got a hole in it quite soon. I give it a 4 due to the fault.

Perfect shoes!
I bought these for my just 3 year old son to start his pre-school. They are a fabulous fit and amazingly comfortable....he absolutely loves them and said that he never wanted to take them off and actually wants to go to bed wearing them! Yes, as far as he is concerned, they are that good!!

Smart looking shoes!
These are our first Pediped purchase and I really like them! They are well made and they don't hurt my son's feet! He has wide feet so we ordered a size up per their suggestions and they fit! Great shoe.

Great shoes
I just ordered these for my 6 year old son's school shoes this year. His uniform requires all black or brown shoes. They just arrived in the mail. I have been looking for something that he can play sports in as well since at recess he is playing soccer, running, etc. I love the toe reinforcement so the shoe won't wear in that area, they also have great support. I also love the velcro straps so I don't have to worry about him tripping on loose shoe strings. I am sure they will hold up well!

Stylish and comfy
My 3.5 year old doesn't like to wear shoes, but he'll wear these comfy and stylish sneaks! He is required to wear black shoes for school and he also wore those with a suit at a wedding. The shoe looked very nice with his attire and he wore the shoes for over an hour (a record for us!). We're using the inserts now and hope to get 6 - 9 months of wear.

Comfy shoes
Generally look and looks comfy. I did hear that this batch could be with flaws but after careful checking I didn't see anything worth worrying about. Fits in really easy, but probably because I bought a bigger size. The only reason I didn't give it a five is that these shoes are heavier and bulkier than they appear in picture. I expected to keep them on my kid's feet before the heat really hits, but they already make his feet sweat and it's only April. Other than that they are so far so good.

great pediped shoe - poor FedEx delivery
All best about pediped shoe - nice, light, our son loved it. Quick shipment to Europe. Would recommend pediped to anybody for great customer experience. Bad experience started with FedEx - it took ages for them to actually deliver the package and only after several conversations with FedEx customer support.

Comfortable shoes
Nice comfortable shoes. However, I wish that Pediped came up with more shoes and sandals for bigger boys. Please release more styles in sizes 34, 35, 36, and 37.
