Being a mom of two boys is so much fun! It’s also quite a lot of exercise. If you didn’t know, little boys require a LOT of outside play time to get all their crazies out. They love anything outdoors, so now that the weather is warming up, we are going to make a point to get outside every day if we can. We have so many awesome parks nearby, which was one of the reasons we chose this neighborhood. We also want to start going on a family walk around the neighborhood at least three times a week. It would be great for me to get some exercise and for all of us to get some fresh air.

When your kids are on their feet a lot, it’s really important to make sure they have a great pair of shoes. I’ve partnered with pediped® to show off some awesome shoes your kids will love! At the end of this post, you’ll have a chance to WIN a pair of pediped® shoes for your little one! Of course, all thoughts are my own and I choose to partner with brands that I actually use and love!

Our boys have been wearing their pediped® shoes for a few months now and they hold up REALLY well to little boy activeness. They are super cute and most importantly, very well made. The quality is amazing! Both boys love to wear them and they provide great support for little, growing feet.

Andrew and Aidan had so much fun at the park this afternoon while wearing their favorite shoes:

My boys are three and four years old. Andrew will be starting Kindergarten in the fall. After testing out pediped® shoes for a few months, I definitely think they are amazing and will be perfect for his school year!  Both boys love to wear them and we love the quality and support they offer while still looking cute and stylish. I love that they have different styles for each age group. My boys aren’t quite ready to tie their own shoes, but with the kid-friendly design that pediped® offers, they can put their shoes on all by themselves, which is a big help when getting ready for preschool each morning! With comfort, support, and style, you can’t go wrong! They work well for everyday use, kids’ activities (running and playing at the park), and lots of walking. And being machine washable makes it a HUGE win for this mama! I can definitely say that pediped® shoes are kid tested and mom approved!

  1. I look for both comfort and durability when it comes to my kids shoes. I don’t want to spend too much because they grow so fast, but I definitely want them to be comfortable and last.

  2. I look first for comfort because they are worthless to me if my kid won’t wear them! Secondly but equally important is durability for me. I don’t want to pay for something that falls apart after we use it three times; not only because that’s a waste of money but also because my daughter gets very attached to her favorite things so when they are worn out that can be very traumatic!

  3. I love for quality comfort. We have a pair of pediped baby shoes that have been through 4 kids now! Love the quality of pediped shoes!
