I am absolutely in love with these shoes. Yes, it’s true. I love Pediped’s Flex line. It’s not often I get really excited over a pair of children’s shoes, but I recently received a pair of Jake sneakers from the Pediped Flex collection and I think they are super. And it’s not just me. My 5 year old absolutely adores them, so much I really had a hard time getting him to take them off. He even wanted to wear them to school the next day despite the very heavy snow on the ground. My 3 year also is so in love with them too, so I’ll soon be ordering a pair in his size too. He’s not a big shoe lover, by any means, but he loves these. We all love how they look and they love how they feel. My 5 year old has been wearing them in the house giving them the best workout he can with the huge piles of snow outside. He says they are extremely comfortable, so much so that he’d sleep in them if he could. He’s asked that next time he gets new shoes, we get the same ones plus he no longer wants any of his current shoes- only Flex from now on. He’s going to be very, very sad when he finds out he’s almost at the top of the size range. Not only do I wish they were available for bigger kids, I wish they were available for me too.
I love the features. First of all they are very cute and look adorable on. Plus they really do flex. Unlike my sons current sneaks, these are so much more flexible and comfy, I’m inclined to let his other shoes go too. They are designed to allow for a more natural foot movement, great for developing feet, plus they have a really nice shock absorbing heel cushion for an even more comfort. I also love the Flex Fit system comprised of 2 insoles that allow for a more customized fit or a bit longer wear as the foot grows. And the main insoles are very cushy too. The Jake is also very easy to get on and off, even on my son’s slightly wide foot. We had none of the struggling that we often have. He can easily pull them on and off thanks to the easy lace-look elastic and the big velcro strap, easy on, yet a nice secure fit.
Pediped offers a full footwear system that will take you straight through from first shoes at 0-6 month up to sizes for your 6 year old. The 3 collections offer the perfect shoe for each stage of your child’s development. My 4 children have all started out with Pedipeds and I am thrilled to try out the Flex line. My only regret is that I didn’t try them sooner. In 2005, my oldest son’s first shoes were Pediped Originals because we loved that they allowed for a barefoot like experience for beginning walkers. We also love the Grip ‘N’ Go line for offering a bit more support & a slip free sole for toddlers that are jetting around a bit more. And now with the Flex line, we really can have the perfect shoes for each stage in a young walker’s development all the way up though Kindergarten. Not only can Pediped meet your little one’s shoe needs, you will also find socks and tights from this fantastic company.
