|Clara's first pair of Pediped's...|
But today isn't the day for that. Sorry. But I DID want to tell you that my favorite baby/toddler shoe brand, Pediped, is having a sale at their website where some of their styles are 60% off with free shipping if you spend over $75 (and a rewards club to earn $$$ towards future purchases). Also, many styles are considered "purchases with a purpose" which donates proceeds directly to children's charities. I should mention that this site always has a "sale" section...which is where I purchase Clara's shoes from (and some of their sales are better than others).
They are really the only shoe brand I have put on my child once she started walking (there are a couple exceptions to this...and I will go into that in another post.) They have different shoes for different "walking" stages...with plenty of education and explanations on their site to help guide you to what your child's shoe gear needs are. Be forwarded, these shoes are not cheap...and I have tried a few different brands that are cheaper but was never impressed (and in some circumstances I was rather horrified) with the construction, the durability, and the overall structure of the shoe.
I believe in good shoes. I will always recommend good shoes.
I give these opinions of Pediped freely, without being a paid sponsor, and I didn't receive any endorsements or promotional items either (though...that would be completely rad if I did!)
(Oh...before I forget, and while it is fresh in my mind...please don't put your newly walking baby/toddler in shoes with heels....and then parade her around town. There is plenty of time for her to wear heels when she is older. It is not the time while her little bones are developing...mmmmk?)
