Kids can feel the difference!

We can’t count the times parents have told us how much their children love pediped® shoes and even refuse to wear other footwear. We know kids can feel the difference that healthy footwear makes. From day one, our mantra—comfort, quality and style—has been the same.

Comfort

pediped® footwear is made with premium grade, non-toxic materials. Foam insoles & cushions provide a comfortable fit, while padded heels absorb shock.

Quality

Unsurpassed quality and craftsmanship have earned pediped® footwear a loyal following. Premium grade leather, distinctive styling and remarkable attention to detail have resulted in truly exceptional shoes.

Style

With fashion-forward styles to choose from for every walking stage, pediped® strives to give parents the look they want, at a price they can afford, all the while being healthy for children's feet.

Healthy Foot Development

Accepted American Podiatric Medical Association pediped Originals®, Grip ‘n’ Go™, and Flex® have been officially recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) as being beneficial for children's growing feet. In fact, our shoes were among the first children’s footwear to be awarded the American Podiatric Medical Association Seal of Acceptance for promoting healthy foot development.

Technologies
pediped® cares about the health and well being of your child's growing feet. We have performed extensive research and testing to develop the latest technologies in children's footwear. From our unique memory foam insoles to our light-weight, water-safe footwear, our innovative features ensure support and comfort for little feet. Take a look below to learn about the different technologies available in many pediped® shoes.

Flex Fit System


With the Flex Fit System, each pair of pediped® Flex® closed-toe shoes comes with an additional 2 millimeter insert to customize the fit of the shoe so it is just right for each child. These inserts can reduce a shoe size by almost half a size.

Flex Fit Shoe Diagram

To use, simply lift the colored insole that comes inside the shoe and place the white additional insert underneath. Afterward, be sure to replace the original insole as this will be the layer next to your child’s foot. Check the fit: shoes should fit snug, but not tight. When there is no need for the extra white insert, simply take it out and use the original insole by itself. This insole should remain in the shoe at all times to ensure comfort for your child.

Please note: Flex Fit System™ inserts are not available with sandals and Adventure (water) styles.

Machine Washable

No more dirty shoes! pediped® Grip 'n' Go and Flex® feature select styles that are machine washable. To wash, simply remove all insoles and place shoes in the washing machine. For best results, wash shoes alone in cold water, on gentle cycle. Do not add bleach; use regular detergent. Allow shoes to air dry with Velcro open (away from sunlight) before re-inserting the insoles. Do not put shoes in the dryer.

Memory Foam Technology

The bones in a child's foot are composed of cartilage, which eventually hardens to form 26 permanent bones per foot. These bones will need to last a lifetime. A shoe that is too rigid or too tight can effectively change the shape of a child's foot, but pediped® footwear with Memory Foam Technology (MFT) helps ensure an excellent fit and outstanding comfort. MFT includes a memory foam insole that shapes perfectly to a child's foot, thus acting like a custom insole and supporting the foot in all the right places. MFT also provides excellent absorption, prevents foot slippage in the shoe and improves the fit of every shoe. MFT is available in select Grip 'n' Go (for active toddlers) and Flex® (for confident walkers).

Ultra Light Technology

Ultra Light Technology is specially designed to support kids' feet in all activities while remaining light as air. Ultra Light Technology includes flex grooves for natural foot movement and maximum flexibility, heel cushioning that distributes pressure evenly, and a breathable mesh upper that allows airflow through the body of the shoe.

Water Safe

Our water-safe shoes are light-weight, eco-friendly, and able to handle dunks and splashes, so they still look great after a day at the pool or beach. Featuring quick-dry EVA footbeds which are designed to express water quickly, your little one will go from wet to dry in a hurry.

Waterproof

pediped's line of Cold Weather boots are constructed with a combination of waterproof materials including leather and nylon to keep feet comfortable and dry. The waterproof membrane and gusseted tongue ensure protection from cold weather elements.

Vegan

We've created a specially curated selection of vegan shoes, made, of course, with all the pediped® quality and comfort you expect for your all-natural wild child. When you see our vegan technology symbol on any of your favorite styles, you can rest assured that it was made with no animal products or by-products.

Eco Friendly

The eco-friendly microfiber used in our Adventure Line and select athletic shoes is made with a solvent-free manufacturing process. This process results in reduced carbon dioxide emissions and reduced water and energy use. Look for eco-friendly shoes in select styles of Grip 'n' Go (for active toddlers) and Flex® (for confident walkers).

G2 Technology

G2 Technology (available in pediped® Grip 'n' Go shoes) provides active toddlers with the ideal combination of protection and flexibility as they improve their walking ability. G2 Technology includes a specialized soft rubber sole, rounded edges that mimic the natural shape of a child's foot, heel stability and a soft toe box that allows toes to curl and grip the floor. Look for shoes with G2 Technology in pediped® Grip 'n' Go shoes.

Slip Resistant Sole

Not only is the all natural leather sole on pediped® Originals® incredibly flexible, but it also features a diamond tread to provide slip resistance.
