[SPONSORED POST* – GIVEAWAY details in this post] Parents endeavour to give their children the very best, and I am no exception. As a mother to a little girl, I am always on the lookout for quality clothes, toys, books, foods and other knick-knacks.
In the series ‘I Have My Eye On‘, I share my favourite finds for my daughter.
Part of the latest Spring/Summer 2014 collection – MIrabella White Sandals in Grip ‘n’ Go
We have been fans of pediped® shoes for the looooongest time. Well, it is after all the one brand we go to for Faith’s shoes ever since she started walking! We have amassed more than ten pairs (don’t be so quick to write me off as a spendthrift, okay, I’m just very, very, very picky about getting comfortable shoes for children), and have even stocked up on designs that will serve Faith well for when she grows older. Talk about being far-sighted…well, you can’t expect me to pass up on great, classic designs that may get sold out in a jiffy, can you?!
Granted, pediped® shoes may be more pricey than your average pair, but like I said, we are talking about an average pair. Faith has been toddling about in pediped® shoes for almost a year now, and I love that she has been comfortable in all of them thus far. She absolutely adores the shoes, often demanding to wear them even when we are home, and I think that is the perfect testament to how good they feel on her feet. I mean, you do know that kids will go into a ‘NONONONONO’ trance, or kick/scream/plank/resist/bite like their life depended on it if they don’t want something, don’t you? And if they want something, well, it’s hard to stop them from getting it too.
I reckon there is a reason why Faith loves these shoes so much. pediped® has after all been awarded the American Podiatric Medical Association of Seal of Acceptance for the promotion of natural and healthy foot development. The pediped® footwear system, consisting of three ranges catered for different stages, is designed to protect children’s feet, from when they are crawling to when they take their first steps and subsequently, to when they stride and run confidently. Comfort is the priority here, and it doesn’t hurt that pediped® has got some stunning designs that will take a child from casual day outs, to rough-and-tumble play dates, school and even formal parties. As a mother, I cannot emphasise how important it is for my daughter to be comfortable. I have suffered from wearing one too many pairs of shoes that bite and offer little support, and the last thing I want is for Faith to be in pain when all she wants is to walk and run freely wherever she goes.
Now, here’s a little history on our experience with pediped® shoes. We first started Faith on Originals®, which have flexible, soft soles that closely mimic barefoot walking (this is in turn important for healthy development of growing feet and good posture). She grew well in them and once she started taking more confident strides, we added shoes from the Grip ‘n’ Go™ range, designed for toddlers transitioning from early walking to confident strides, to her collection. Both systems have worked so well for her that I will definitely be putting her on the Flex® range (caters to confident walkers) when the time comes.
Besides being made with premium, high-quality, non-toxic leather, we noticed that foam insoles and cushions have been added to provide a comfortable fit for those cute, chubby feet of our daughter, along with padded heels to absorb the shock from all that walking and running. The shoes boast great non-slip soles as well (all-natural leather for Originals® and rubber for the other two ranges), that do not hinder Faith from walking properly (you know those shoes which have far too many grooves on the soles, that trip you up because there is just too much friction? Who knew that could be a bad thing?). I am also very particular about how my kid dresses, and if you look at the styles that pediped® carries, you’d probably know why I love purchasing them for Faith. The comfort, supreme quality and designs are enough to convince me in bagging the shoes over and over again, even if they are more expensive, even if I am usually very reluctant to spend more than certain amounts on things that she will outgrow sooner than others. THESE SHOES ARE WORTH IT.
The Spring/Summer 2014 collection continues to tempt us too! There are more than 20 new styles and colours for the latest season, and new designs have been added to the water-safe adventure and machine-washable lines, perfect for children who love to live life on the edge! Faith is a little more reserved and less outdoorsy, much like her mother, so we have chosen to be sponsored with the Mirabella White Sandals, which are versatile and perfect for most occasions. We can have her wear socks, or go without when wearing them. They come with velcro straps at the tip and ankle; one can adjust the fits accordingly to accomodate narrower/wider feet/ankles. I like that it’s rather feminine without being outrightly girly too! I’d be honest with you here…erm, I actually really adore the designs for boys; the Frederick Glacier Grey is something that I wanted to get for Faith (yes, Faith!), but it only comes in Originals® (Mamas and Papas with babies, please get this because it is just too cute and stylish for words).
Of course, I’m not leaving without giving you a chance to win some sweeeeeeet pediped® shoes, and the great news is there are THREE pairs up for grabs, so that means THREE winners will be randomly selected, and each will walk away with one pair of shoes!
