pediped® footwear was founded in 2005 by Angela and Brian Edgeworth. After their first daughter Caroline was born, Angela started to do a lot of thinking about footwear and the kind of shoes that would be best for her child. She wanted a shoe that was comfortable and stylish and that could be worn both indoors and out. Most importantly, she wanted a shoe that was healthy for her daughter’s feet.
After doing a lot of research, Angela discovered that doctors recommended barefoot walking or soft leather sole shoes, but the choices for infants and toddlers were limited.That is when Angela and her husband Brian decided to create the perfect shoe, which would be the "next best thing to bare feet”.
pediped® has become one of the fastest growing children's footwear brands in the U.S. and offers more than 120 designs spanning EU sizes 17-38. pediped’s three footwear lines include Originals® (soft soled shoes for children ages birth to 2), Grip ‘n’ Go™ (soft rubber soled shoes for children about 9 months to 3 years) and Flex® (rubber soled shoes for children about 1-9 years). pediped® is sold all around the world.
The pediped® philosophy is simple: comfort, quality and style, in that order, which is why pediped® was one of the first children’s shoe companies the American Podiatric Medical Association awarded their Seal of Acceptance for promoting healthy foot development.
MATERIALS AND CRAFTSMANSHIP
pediped® uses only the highest quality leathers, and our craftsmanship is second to none.The soles on an Originals® shoe are made of two layers of slip-resistant, high quality leather.The soles on Grip ‘n’ Go™ are a thin, natural rubber that provides an ideal level of protection and flexibility. Flex® soles are also made of natural rubber to allow maximum flexibility.
pediped® creates stylish shoes that are the perfect combination of timelessness and trend. We strive to achieve great style while maintaining comfort and quality. Clean, modern colors, with a nod to the classics, and an element of surprise are the fundamental principles of the pediped® design philosophy. Our primary design considerations continue to be comfort, simplicity, and quality. This philosophy applies to all products that we design. pediped® hopes that moms and dads like the styles as much as they like the fact that the shoes are healthy for their child’s developing feet.

pediped® Flex® shoes are amazing! My daughter is very picky when it comes to shoes so I was pleasantly surprised when she instantly fell in love with her pediped® Flex® shoes. I'm a runner so my daughter loves to run with me so finding her a pair of really good shoes with cushioned arch support is a must. These pediped® Flex® shoes are extremely supportive yet very lightweight and comfortable. Usually after we go running her shoes are the first thing to go as soon as we walk in the door but now I have to remind her to take her shoes off. She says it's because she forgets she's even wearing them, The Flex Fit System™ by pediped is absolutely amazing and I love that it offers a customizable fit with the use of additional insoles, extending the life of a pair of shoes up to two months. Shoes are expensive so as a mom of 4 I love that I can get a little extra use from them, especially because they're top quality shoes that my child actually enjoys wearing. My daughter and I love pediped shoes and I highly recommend them!
