Back-to-school shopping is probably one of the biggest shopping adventures we have in our house. I mean, we do normal shopping, but back-to-school shopping is huge because we have to get all new supplies and clothes for Thaddeus. One of the biggest items we have to purchase is shoes. Thaddeus goes through several pairs of shoes throughout the school year, and I mean probably 5-6 pair of shoes! This year we were given the opportunity to review the pediped® Fall/Winter 2012 Collection, which includes a new athletic line and Thaddeus was ecstatic!
About New Athletic Line
Engineered for comfort and built for speed, pediped’s new line of athletic footwear has an ultra-light weight of just five ounces (based on a size 27), flex grooves for maximum flexibility and are machine washable. The new line of waterproof cold weather boots, created as a result of customer demand, have a temperature rating of -20 degrees, self-cleaning soles and a waterproof exterior. The Fall Winter 2012 Collection also includes more than 80 new design offerings across pediped’s existing three lines: Originals®, Grip ‘n’ Go™ and Flex®. The new designs feature pediped’s signature comfortable fit along with a broadened range of colors and fabrics that includes navy, metallics, three-dimensional details and suede.
School started for Thaddeus during the first week of September and his pediped shoes arrived just a couple of weeks later. Ever since they arrived he has worn no other shoes. I even asked him one morning before school why he doesn’t wear any of the other shoes we purchased for him. His response:
Because I like these ones much better!
Personally, I happen to love their new athletic line and that they have shoes for all occasions; holidays, school, and just every day wear! Just check out these great new lines.
I have been surprised at how well the pediped shoes have held up since we received them. Thaddeus is wearing them every day and other than a small spot in the front coming lose they still look brand new! If only I could keep Thaddeus from dragging his feet when he plays they’d be in perfect condition.
Thaddeus is always on the go and I love that these shoes fit nice and snug. They not only stay on his feet when he is running but also when he is kicking a football! He always tends to lose his shoes during running or kicking because although the shoes fit in length they don’t seem to get tight enough around his foot. Kind of like they are wide foot shoes and he’s got super skinny feet. Not with his pediped shoes!
One of the things that we hate that Thaddeus loves to do is he is always wearing his shoes and scuffing up the floors in the house. We have bare floors throughout the house and we’ve yet to find a pair of shoes for Thaddeus that didn’t scuff up the floors. That is until the pediped shoes arrived! I’ve yet to see a scuff in any room of the house due to him crawling around on the floor or running through the house with his shoes on. SCORE!
Thaddeus is almost too old for pediped shoes, but they do offer them for toddlers and youth sizes for both boys and girls and they have an awesome printable guide to measure your child’s feet to ensure you get the correct size!
