pediped: Award-Winning Baby Shoes Perfect for First Steps


Did you know that around 70% of foot problems come from wearing the wrong footwear or ill-fitting shoes? Also, a shoe that is too rigid or too tight can change the shape of your child’s foot! 

When your child first begins to walk, providing proper foot protection while enabling maximum movement is important for his or her foot development. Allowing your little one to go barefoot or wear soft sole shoes while inside helps the feet to grow normally and to develop musculature, strength, and the grasping action of the toes.

When walking outside or on rough surfaces, an infant’s feet should always be protected in lightweight, flexible footwear made of natural materials. pediped® footwear’s Originals® line of soft sole footwear is the next best thing to bare feet and provides the protection and flexibility for both indoor and outdoor walking.

pediped® Originals® are the ideal first shoe for beginning walkers. The soft leather, slip resistant outsole allows children to feel the floor below them while providing traction with every step. Developed by a mom looking for the healthiest footwear for her child, pediped® shoes are designed to AAP and American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) standards. Crafted completely of high-quality, non-toxic leather, pediped® Originals baby shoes feature a diamond tread sole that is perfect for little ones learning to walk. 

Whether a child is crawling, learning to walk, or running around, pediped® has a stylish shoe that fits comfortably and ensures healthy foot development. Each of the three footwear lines featured in the pediped® footwear system is specially designed to meet the needs of a particular walking stage.
