Pediped’s New Adventure Line & Giselle Flex Review : The Next Best Thing to Bare Feet


I fell in love with pediped in 2007 when Emma received a couple pair for her 1st birthday. I had found an article about how flexible footwear is so important to growing feet. I had always thought that firm “walking shoes” that people bronze were what babies needed to learn how to walk.  After some research on the topic I was sold. Then I found pediped originals. After some reading on the subject, I loved that pediped mimics barefoot walking… perfect!

I have been hooked ever since.

I was so sad when Emma grew out of her original pedipeds. I actually saved them. They are tucked away in their original boxes in her closet. I’m not sure why I am saving them… but it makes me smile to think about them.

Since then, Emma has graduated into the older children’s line of pediped Flex®. These still mimic barefoot walking, but with extra protection on the bottoms (and super flexible soles).

Emma was sent a pair of Giselle to review. Although we are familiar with the Flex® line, it has been a while since we owned a pair. Taking them out of the box, I quickly remembered why I love pediped and started questioning why we didn’t own them anymore.

Pediped shoes are made from quality materials (premium grade, non toxic leather)… but most of all, they are comfortable! Pediped’s mantra has always been comfort, quality and style.. in that order. Emma did not want to take them off!

Pediped shoes are also stylish. With 120 styles to choose from there is a pair for just about any taste.


The Giselle shoes that Emma is modeling have a brown base with adorable polka dots. These grab your attention, add spunk to an outfit, and the Mary Jane style is classic. The Flex come with an additional insert to allow your child to wear them for even longer. When the shoes are a bit big, slide in the insert. As their foot grows and takes up more room in the shoe, remove it for a few extra months of use.
