Eclipse: Stylish Fashion Boots you can Wash!

Another Flex® street sole has arrived—meet our newest fashion boot, Eclipse.

Our Black/Blueprint/Limeade colorways feature a tough-to-scratch, man made leather surface.  While it has an extremely smooth hand feel—there are no compromises on durability.  

Our Dusty Rose & Blue options have an “aged” look for style.  Their cool colors don’t fade after washing, and scuffs and scratches are a part of the cool, stylish look.

All Eclipse colorways have an elastic gore for added comfort and fit. The inside inside zipper makes this fashion boot easy to slide on and take off.  Along with being lightweight and flexible, Eclipse is made without any animal products or by-products. It get's even better, all of the colorways are also Machine Washable.

Unlike our other fashion boots and Flex® shoes, the footbed is secured down to prevent it from pushing forward and wrinkling under the toes when putting it on.  The flex fit system still work perfectly—they just need to be worn on top of the footbed!

On trend and easily wearable, every closet should have a place for Eclipse.

What do you think of Eclipse?

Designer Closet Giveaway: The Boo-tiful Matilda!

We went into the Designer Closet this month for a classic look in style and color, but perfect for Halloween—and school!  This is Matilda!

Matilda was almost a part of this season’s new street sole line, but was cut due to its similarity to the more familiar looking Barbara.  It separates itself with a T-strap which some of our staff really loved!

As with all of our Flex® shoes, Matilda will come with an additional 2 millimeter insole that customizes the fit and can reduce the shoe by almost half a size if needed!  You’ll get more out of Matilda thanks to this flexibility. 



Check out the some of the many ways your little one can wear Matilda for Halloween!

Do you prefer a classic single strap Mary Jane, or a t-strap like Matilda?

Who won Sydney Stone Grey?

Congratulations to Helen Tan!  She has won a one-of-a-kind pair of Grip 'n' Go's: Sydney Stone Grey!

"The shoes look comfortable. And the grey color is my favorite for baby items, looking elegant, chic and gender neutral. These will be THE everyday sandals for my little one!"

We loved reading all your comments about the shoes, and all the love for the color grey!

Here's other great comments we've seen--even a poem:

Darlisha B.

"I love the grey option, especially since our toddler doesn't wear a ton of pink, which is the color most girl sandals come in. This grey would be complimentary to the greens, blues, yellows, and oranges that fill our baby's closet. We would definitely purchase shoes in this color. Please please make a pair of Mary Jane's in this shade!"

Karen C.P.

Hi Sydney Stone Grey! 

You will surely make little Adrian's day

So come home with us ok?

And then we can play all day...

Margarita R.

"This  is a classic color and style that should be revisited as it is gender neutral and can go with any outfit. The only thing that woukd make this even better, would be, a darker sole. It would making the shoe look more pristine longer as little ones can get up to a lot in these shoes."

We can't wait to go back into the Designer Closet and hear from you guys again !




pediped Cares

We’ve seen hurricanes, fires, and now earthquakes upend the lives of millions around the globe.  Knowing that many families were displaced from their homes, we spent some time finding great organizations (from individuals to larger operations) to help distribute shoes for kids on our customers’ behalf.  

We want to thank the following organization for helping us get your donations to those in need:

Zappos | Baby2Baby | Victory Christian Center | The Motherhood Center | Walking Tots | Goddard School | @issarocks + More!

We hope that these would help, even in a small way, while everyone recovers and rebuilds.

Designer's Closet Giveaway: Grip 'n' Go Sydney Stone Grey

It’s our third designer closet giveaway and this time, we’ve pulled out a great Grip ‘n’ Go style that was cut from our lineup. 
This is Sydney Stone Grey:


These one-of-a-kind sandals will pair perfectly with almost any outfit with their sleek look and neutral color. The memory foam footbed is a cozy resting spot for little toes and the upper is 100% high quality leather.

"Sydney Stone Grey was an option we tried, and while it came out looking very nice, we decided to go with the more popular Navy combo." - Jenevieve F., pediped footwear designer

Did we make a mistake by not including grey along with navy in the spring line?  Would you like to see more shoes in this grey color?

Why did we cut a shoe in half?


Designed with casual fashion in mind with no compromises in pediped quality, some of our new street sole styles have arrived (with more on their way)!


From construction to materials and having a low drop for a barefoot feel, they'll benefit your little ones far beyond their great casual looks.  These stylish new additions may surprise you with how different they are from other brands, and if you need to see to believe it--we cut these shoes in half to show you!  


Quite the difference, right?

All our street soles also feature the Flex Fit System, and many are machine washable and vegan!


We feel like we've made the step in the right direction with our new street soles.  What do you think?
