Technology

pediped® cares about the health and well being of your child’s growing feet. We have performed extensive research and testing to develop the latest technologies in children’s footwear. From our unique memory foam insoles to our light-weight, water-safe footwear, our innovative features ensure support and comfort for little feet. Take a look below to learn about the different technologies available in many pediped® shoes.

Ultra Light Technology™ is specially designed to support kids’ feet in all activities while remaining light as air. Ultra Light Technology™ includes flex grooves for natural foot movement and maximum flexibility, heel cushioning that distributes pressure evenly, and a breathable mesh upper that allows airflow through the body of the shoe.

G2 Technology™ (available in pediped Grip ‘n’ Go™ shoes) provides active toddlers with the ideal combination of protection and flexibility as they improve their walking ability. G2 Technology™ includes a specialized soft rubber sole, rounded edges that mimic the natural shape of a child’s foot, heel stability and a soft toe box that allows toes to curl and grip the floor. Look for shoes with G2 Technology™ in pediped Grip 'n' Go™ shoes.

With the Flex Fit System™, each pair of pediped Flex® closed-toe shoes comes with an additional 2 millimeter insole to customize the fit of the shoe so it is just right for each child. These insoles can reduce a shoe size by almost half a size.

To use, simply lift the colored insole that comes inside the shoe and place the white additional insole underneath. Afterward, be sure to replace the original insole as this will be the layer next to your child’s foot. Check the fit: shoes should fit snug, but not tight. When there is no need for the extra white insole, simply take it out and use the original insole by itself. This insole should remain in the shoe at all times to ensure comfort for your child.

Please note: Flex Fit System™ inserts are not available with sandals and Adventure (water) styles.

The bones in a child’s foot are composed of cartilage, which eventually hardens to form 26 permanent bones per foot. These bones will need to last a lifetime. A shoe that is too rigid or too tight can effectively change the shape of a child’s foot, but pediped® footwear with Memory Foam Technology™ (MFT™) provides the support and comfort that our children’s feet deserve.

MFT™ includes a memory foam insole that shapes perfectly to a child’s foot, thus acting like a custom insole and supporting the foot in all the right places. MFT™ also provides excellent absorption, prevents foot slippage in the shoe and improves the fit of every shoe. MFT™ is available in select Grip ‘n’ Go™ (for active toddlers) and Flex® (for confident walkers).

No more dirty shoes! pediped Grip ‘n’ Go™ and Flex® feature select styles that are machine washable. Parents can rest easy with this line of wash and wear footwear.

To wash, simply remove all insoles and place shoes in the washing machine. For best results, wash shoes alone in cold water, on gentle cycle. Do not add bleach; use regular detergent. Allow shoes to air dry with Velcro open (away from sunlight) before re-inserting the insoles. Do not put shoes in the dryer.

Our water-safe shoes are light-weight, eco-friendly, and able to handle dunks and splashes, so they still look great after a day at the pool or beach. Soft Neoprene lining keeps them water-safe inside and out, while a natural rubber sole and toe cap provide flexibility and protection. Best of all, these shoes are machine washable! Look for water-safe technology in select pediped Flex® styles.

The eco-friendly microfiber used in our Adventure Line and select athletic shoes is made with a solvent-free manufacturing process. This process results in reduced carbon dioxide emissions and reduced water and energy use. Look for eco-friendly shoes in select styles of Grip ‘n’ Go™ (for active toddlers) and Flex® (for confident walkers).

An update on the beloved pediped® Originals shoes, our non-slip sole is available on all new Spring/Summer 2012 styles. The sole features a diamond tread to reduce potential slipping and is made of all-natural leather, just like before.
