First shoes for kids: The next best thing to barefeet, Pediped

Being parents second time round to Ava who just turned 10 months old, we find ourselves more chill and not overly OCD in tracking her every milestone. As long as she is healthy, happy and growing well, we are not fussed over the smallest things. I may not know exactly how many day old she is (...about 9 months, oh think it's 10 months already), when she sprouted her first tooth or when she started to crawl, but when we are shopping for her, we do not compromise on quality and comfort. 

We have heard a lot about Pediped shoes from fellow parents, online and in magazines, and when we were looking for Ava's first pair of shoes, we were drawn to this pair of Isabella Red shoes from Pediped's Grip 'n' Go range and couldn't wait to have her take her first steps in them. 


These days she has started to pull herself up to a standing position and can cruise around the house. She is also keen on taking baby steps when we go for walks instead of being carried or sitting in the stroller. We started putting on shoes for her whenever we go out so she will get used to wearing shoes and encourages her to take a few steps in them.

Here's why the selection for baby's first pair of shoes is important and what we love about Pediped's Isabella Red. 

1) Comfort for baby's delicate feet 

For baby's first pair of walking shoes, we feel that it is important to consider its comfort level for baby's feet. Pediped uses the highest quality leather and the soles on its Grip ‘n’ Go™ range are a thin natural rubber that provides an ideal level of flexibility and protection. With padded heels to absorb shock, this is perfect for baby's first steps.

2) Support for baby's first steps 

The Pediped footwear system boosts of three ranges of shoes, Originals from 0-24 month,
Grip ‘n’ Go™(9 month - 3 years) and Flex (1 - 6 years) to cater to your kid's needs as he grows from baby to active toddler and a confident walker.  

The Grip ‘n’ Go™range has soft, flexible soles and allow children to mimic barefoot walking closely. They also have a special G2 Technology™, which includes a soft rubber sole, rounded edges that mimic the shape of a child’s foot, heel stability, and a soft toe box to allow toes to grip the floor. These encourages babies to be more confident walkers as they feel comfortable wearing the shoes and it provides them with adequate support.

3) Assurance for parents

With its unsurpassed quality and craftsmanship, Pediped footwear has earned a loyal following. Word of mouth from other fellow parents are the best testimonies. The footwear have also been officially recognized by the American Pediatric Medical Association (APMA) as being beneficial for children's growing feet and awarded the AMPA Seal of Acceptance for promoting healthy foot development. This multiple award winning brand and range of shoes sets the new standard in children's shoes. This gives parents added assurance that they are making the right choice in purchasing this range of shoes for their kids. 

4) Comfortable shoes are not stylish

Says who? Pediped creates stylish shoes that are the perfect combination of timelessness and trend. The brand launches two collection a year, you'd be spoilt for choice. We chose this pair of shoes in patent bright red that's ideal to jazz up an everyday casual outfit or to add glamour to a little black dress. 

Pediped range of shoes may come at a higher price tag from $64 - $99, but we feel that it's important for kids to start walking in the right pair of shoes with adequate support that can guide them as they grow into their toddler years.
