For our new line of street styles, we started completely from scratch, even designing a new outsole. Our new soles feature a 100% rubber outsole, a woven midsole for flexibility, and a foam cushion lined footbed. Our Street Soles were designed to look like popular, vulcanized soles, but with improved durability and protection.
Dani may be the first arrival, but don’t forget to keep an eye out for Barbara, Logan, and Eclipse who are coming soon!
Wait until you see the other colors!

Whether you’re a new mom or buying a baby shower gift, there can be a surprising amount of research and thought needed before you pick out the right one! Below are important factors to consider when selection proper footwear:
Is Barefoot Best?
It’s suggested that barefoot is better for babies learning how to walk. They can curl and grip their toes on the ground as they build the strength of the foot and arch. However, when barefoot isn’t practical—when it’s too hot, or cold, or if you just want to keep baby's feet protected, shoes are the way to go!
The Originals® Difference
The soft, flexible soles of Originals® are recommended by pediatricians and podiatrists because they allow children to closely mimic barefoot walking. Not only is the all natural leather sole on Originals® incredibly flexible, but it also features a diamond tread to provide slip resistance. Originals® are made of the highest quality leather on the market and they also feature a soft foam insert between leather layers. pediped® Originals are the best first shoe ever and ideal for infants and children learning to walk so they can feel and grip the floor.
Fit is Key
70% of foot problems come from improper footwear or ill-fitting shoes, which can impede a baby’s ability to perform typical gross motor movements and, of course, can be very uncomfortable. While it may seem like it’s too big, room in the toe box is important for the toes to have the proper space to move comfortably in Originals® genuine leather soles! Keep in mind that baby's feet grow in spurts and often require new shoes every three to six months.
