I love a soft leather sole for children’s shoes. The soft flexibility allows a child’s foot to develop normally yet still protects it from the grime and sharp thingies on the ground. So, of course, pediped Originals shoes have earned their place on the top of my list for kiddos under the age of two. This spring pediped is introducing a new slip resistant leather sole to their 2012 Spring/Summer collection.

pediped Originals New Sole

pediped Originals are designed for to be a child’s first shoes. As children learn to walk they shuffle their feet and experts say it is important for them to feel the floor. A flexible sole like pediped Originals is ideal when bare feet aren’t practical. pediped Originals also have a roomy toebox to allow the feet to move and grow properly. The child’s feet develop naturally without relying on the support of the shoe and feel comfortable. The velcro fasteners help parents get the shoes on and adjust for optimal fit.

The new slip resistant leather sole features a slip resistant diamond design on the same high quality leather sole pediped has been known for. My little man loved running around in his. I just wish he wasn’t so big (can’t believe he’s two already!) and about to outgrow them. He’d be wearing these for a long time otherwise.
