With the start of school and cooler weather, now is the time to consider whether you have everything you need for your child’s wardrobe. And as fast as my kids seem to grow it is always important to stay on top of how their footwear is holding up and if they still fit! A new pair of shoes or boots might be just what you need to be ready for the fall season.
Pediped has new athletic styles and new cold weather boots both of which are perfect for school, holidays and every day! The 2012 Fall/Winter Collection features an innovative line of athletic shoes with Ultra Light Technology™ and more than 80 new design offerings. They also have a collection of waterproof cold weather boots!
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 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.
I was most excited about the new athletic line of shoes for up children up to 7 years or 8 years. Since my husband is a marathon runner, it is very important that his kids have a great pair of athletic shoes which are flexible and light.
The Pediped Athletic Line with Ultra Light Technology features a shoe that not only weighs almost nothing at 5 oz (for a size 10 children’s shoe) but has great flexibility for natural foot movement, all things that make my husband giddy when he saw our new Flex Saturn shoes in black, silver and orange.
I love that they are machine washable and feature velcro straps to make it quick to get out the door in the morning. And of course the quality is fantastic, something I’ve come to expect from Pediped since buying my first pair of originals for my six year old Lucian when he was an infant.
Lucian likes how cool they look and that they are his very favorite color, orange. I’ve asked him several times over the last couple of weeks about his thoughts on his new shoes and if they were comfortable. He says they are “great!” and it is easy to run in them.
Since Lucian wears a school uniform there aren’t a lot of things he can pick out to show off his own sense of style. Unlike the girls who can choose hair accessories and fun tights, shoes are the only way for boys to stand out from the crowd. These are perfect for Lucian to still look great in his school uniform but have proper footwear for recess and gym. And I know that unless he outgrows them, they will last his entire school year no matter how rough he is on his shoes.
