New Shoes

Little man’s athletic new shoes, courtesy of pediped- these are the Flex Jupiter in Grey Orange*, and he was very excited to sport them around…he said they are “kinda cool!” (kinda is his new word)

The Jupiter features Ultra Light Technology™ (they are 5 oz) and five flex grooves for provide maximum flexibility- great for little athletes that never stop moving.

The top is breathable mesh, the sole is natural rubber, and the heel is cushioned on the outside for impact protection (a good thing since kids love to jump around so much).

I love the velcro strap and elastic “laces” that don’t require tying- they stretch to accommodate your child’s foot, and then shrink back to securely and comfortably support and protect.

They are also machine washable…we hand down shoes in this house (a benefit of having children of the same gender, and quality shoes like pediped that don’t wear easily) so being able to toss them in the wash after a good and messy play date is important!

Shoes in pediped’s Flex line feature the Flex Fit System™, an insole placed under the regular shoes’ insoles to adjust the fit and grow with your child’s feet. These shoes are full and half sizes (his are 12-12.5) so the Flex Fit System keeps these Jupiter athletic shoes snug as his feet grow…when he’s ready for 12.5, just remove them to give more room.
