Pediped® launches its Fall & Winter 2012 Collection with an innovative line of athletic shoes featuring Ultra Light Technology™, a collection of waterproof cold weather boots and more than 80 new design offerings. I was able to receive a sample of Originals to review with Zach, which I’m super excited about.
The Originals line features soft soles that are perfect for infants because they closely mimic barefoot walking. This season, Pediped launches 15 new styles of Originals. Highlights of the season include Hazel (suede boots for girls), Frederick, and Jett (casual sneaker shoes). I received a pair of Jake in Navy Blue. These shoes are very light-weight and stylish to say the least. I’ve tried a variety of shoes with Zach and most of the time they are either too thick and he has a hard time walking in them, or too thin and they end up tearing.
The Jake Originals are very comfortable on Zach and he is able to walk in them like a pro. What I love about these shoes is that they actual stay on his feet and aren’t too easy for him to take off by himself (a really good thing!). The Jake Originals feature a nubuck upper, all-leather sole, a velcro strap that securely stays in place. These shoes are also approved by the American Pediatric Medical Association for promoting healthy foot development.
The Jake Originals are seriously perfect for Zach and are made of good quality material, so I know they’re going to last him a while. These shoes are also very flexible, so he’s able to run in them with ease- perfect for playing in outside. The Jake Originals are also slip-resistant, so I can easily take him out in the rain without worrying that he’ll fall.
The Originals collection are available for children ages 0-24 months.
They retail from $35 to $43. The Jake Originals cost $35
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.
