Back-to-School Shoe Giveaway!

pediped giveaway

One of my favorite things about the back-to-school time of year is NEW SHOES!

Although I’ve never loved shopping and I’m not really into clothing all that much, I loved (and still love) getting new shoes.

Every September, we got one new pair of “indoor shoes” that we kept at school and changed into each day after we got to school. We changed our shoes at recess and then again before we went home — do schools still do this?

I can still remember begging my mom for Barbie shoes at the beginning of 2nd grade… and her refusing to buy them for me. She knew I really wasn’t into Barbies anyway, and the only reason I was asking for them was because one of my friends had them. She told me that by the end of 2nd grade, I wouldn’t want to wear Barbie shoes around school anyway… and she was right!

Fast-forward 22 years, and I have Nora begging me for a ridiculous pair of HIGH HEEL shoes with a picture of Elsa and Anna on them… sorry girly, I think we’ll choose something a bit more practical for a FOUR year old!!

For the last few years, I’ve worked closely with pediped, an amazing line of high-quality children’s shoes, to help promote their brand and their products.

If you’ve never heard of pediped or if you’ve never tried their shoes, let me just briefly share a few reasons why our family loves them SO much.

  • The shoes are SOOOOOOO easy to get on and off — even for pudgy toddler feet and squirmy baby feet!
  • They are super high quality and we’ve never yet had a pair get worn out before the kids grow out of them (even for Simon — and he is hard on his shoes!)
  • They are comfortable for the kids. Nora often complains about how her shoes feel — but she never complains about her pedipeds.
  • The larger sizes come with an insert so you can buy a size up and use the insert until the kid’s feet are larger… this way, you can get more wear out of the same pair of shoes!
  • They are designed to ensure healthy foot development for kids of all ages.

If that’s not enough to sell you, then you should know that the pediped shoes are REALLY cute… or maybe it’s just my shoe models 🙂

pediped has three different lines of children’s shoes:

1. Original: Best for infants and small children learning to walk.

2. Grip ‘n Go: Best for active toddlers who are already walking.

3. Flex: Perfect for more experienced walkers.

We went with the Flex shoes for Nora — she picked these out herself (in both pink and silver!) She loves the sparkles and the flower… I love that she can quickly and easily get them on and off herself!

Simon also got some Flex shoes (in blue, of course) and new boots that he is SUPER excited about!

And Mr. James also got these shoes and the cutest, softest, most comfy little baby boots you’ve ever seen!

Our kiddos are loving THEIR “back-to-school shoes” and I’m excited to be able to give away a couple pairs of pediped shoes for those of you who might still need to pick up a pair of back-to-school shoes for your kids!

    Thanks for the giveaway! I’d love to try them for my 2 girls.
    Regarding your story about “indoor shoes” for school – where did you grow up? I have never heard of anything like this before. The closest I heard of or experienced was either in winter when we wore snow boots and we had the option to bring other shoes to change into at school so we didn’t have to wear the boots all day, or in gym we had to bring separate gym shoes starting in middle school.

    It’s funny; my 4-year-old wants exactly those shoes too! I’ve seen pedipeds before and was curious about them. I felt at the time they wouldn’t be worth it as kiddo was growing so fast that it didn’t matter if the her shoes wore out by the time we needed to get new ones. But, now she’s so hard on shoes, we probably should look into getting sturdier ones. Thanks for sharing your experience with this brand! Will check them out even if I don’t win the raffle (entered under my legal name).

    Love Pediped. Every time I buy a different brand of shoes for my kids, I wish I would have bought Pedipeds. Lately I’ve been having great luck at pedipedoutlet.com. Most pairs are $30 or less.

    Andrea, I think it’s great that your school required students to have a pair of indoor shoes. I’m sure that having to change shoes twice a day at school helped to inculcate in you at a young age the habit of cleanliness and neatness. You must have gone to a private school. I entered the drawing but regardless I will be looking for these shoes for my two little boys, perhaps to give them as gifts at Christmas.

    I have been buying pediped shoes for the last few years after your recommendations. My 4 year old has the same shoes as Nora (in silver). I’m getting ready to buy both my girls the Mary Jane sneakers so I’ll hold off to see if I win the contest!!

    Andrea, thanks for the introduction to this line of shoes. As a grandmother I’m no longer “in the know” as to the latest and greatest for children 🙂 But I totally agree with you that shoes are so important for very young children’s healthy foot development. I just might have to get my two little boys Pediped for Christmas!
