Win $75 to Shop for Shoes at Pediped!

by Andrea Updyke

Any parent can attest to the fact that we seem to be always buying shoes for our kids. Their feet just grow so dang fast! It’s next to impossible to keep up. Twice in my almost 4 year old son’s life, I have found myself with him in the shoe store getting sized only to realize he has been wearing shoes 2 and even 3 sizes too small! We leave with the correct size and I leave the store vowing to measure his feet every other day. We can’t keep our kids from growing, so we do our best to keep up.

Of course, keeping their feet protected and well supported is also important, which is where Pediped comes in. They specialize is great quality shoes for children that look great and support their feet as they grow. We were asked to review a pair of shoes so I decided to order the Flex Jones pair ($45).

These sneakers are adorable and have some really great features. Not only are they approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association for promoting healthy foot development, they also come with the Flex Fit system which extends the life of the shoe. The Flex Fit system is basically an extra insole that goes inside the shoe to help if the fit is a little big. Once their feet grow, you remove the insoles to create more room giving almost a half size of difference! For a mom like me who can never seem to stay ahead of the game, I am totally sold on this feature. Oscar loves them too and has already asked to wear them!

The sizing runs a little big so keep that in mind if you plan to make an order. In our case, bigger is better because he will definitely grow into them!

Pediped has tons of great shoe styles for boys and girls from babies to age 8. Like Pediped on Facebook for all the latest updates!

Blogging since 2003, Andrea didn’t truly find her voice until the birth of her first son in 2009. Since that time her words have focused on the magical world of mothering small children, pregnancy and the lifestyle that surrounds caring for a home and family. In her blog, Lil-Kid-Things, she explores the ongoing process of becoming a mom, while at the same time celebrating ordinary life and exploring the awe that motherhood brings. Andrea’s goal is to encourage new moms to hang in there and know that they aren’t alone. Even at 3 am.
