LOVE these shoes. I have been a huge Pediped
fan for several years but we had gotten away from them recently. My daughter just started Kindergarten and she has been wearing Keds
and Cienta to school for the most part but with PE starting this week she needed some good tennis shoes
that were washable, durable and easy for her to get on and off on her own without the help of a teacher. I had a hard time finding some velcro
shoes that didn't look silly and were not all plastic. Due to an Eczema problem she has to wear breathable or leather shoes
. Over the summer she had a pair of Reebok
Real Flex that she loved but they are NOT washable and they tied. When I came across these I debated because they looked so bulky. I caved and got them so she had something to wear this week for PE. I am so glad that I did. She put them on straight out of the box and has worn them all day. She refused to take them off and actually fell asleep in them. I ordered the purple/silver and they are super cute, super flexible and very light weight. They are more bulky than the Reebok
but not as bulky as the picture seems. I ordered the sz 30 (12.5-13) for my 5.5 year old since her last pr of Pedipeds were the 29 and they are now too small. These shoes seem to run pretty true to size if not a tad big. I had to use the extra fit inserts to get the perfect fit, but that means they should last her a while before she outgrows them. We will def be getting more of these.
