Why I believe Pediped Footwear is a Smart Choice for Parents

IMG_7639Being a mommy of a growing boy, you can just imagine the things you have to replace. Some more often then you would like, Its insane how you can just wish your kid would just stop growing. One realization kicks in its Pretty evident your little one isn’t so little. IMG_7665
Since we can’t stop time and put a pause on our little ones from growing so . But at least we can invest in a brand that offers us an opportunity in a pair of shoes that won’t send us running back to the store before your little ones get some good use out of there brand new shoes.

IMG_7460 You might be asking How is this possible? You may be wondering why would a brand make shoes that is actually a half size bigger? Boy do I have the answer for you. Have you ever heard of PediPed? Have you ever been to Town Square on Las Vegas Blvd?
IMG_7673My growing boy had the opportunity to test out a pair of flex Pediped shoes (For Honest Review). Which I never heard of before. Upon exploring there website they had a very good selection with different features that would fit your childs need and moms need to have her kid’s shoe fashionable. I was literally impressed with the variety of shoes available. I honestly alway thought Pediped’s were designed for infants.


My son was gifted a pair when he first started walking. They were the best, the material was durable, and it was designed perfectly for my little ones feet. Not once did I see him struggling with these shoes on. I was pretty bummed when he out grew them. Once he outgrew the infant shoe I started purchasing him shoes from various stores that had great deals.

IMG_7615But now that my little one is growing and he’s becoming more active in school and sports. I was on the search to find shoes that I could invest in and accommodate my sons needs without breaking the bank every time. So I started doing my research online and asking other moms for recommendations. After receiving his shoes I went on the the website to learn more about the shoe and brand. So you might be asking yourself, Why Pediped? Here are a few reason to consider the brand. The details are well explained which can leave you asking Why not Pediped.

Laceez Review by Marianne

Hey mamas! I was privileged to review Laceez and I must say this product saves me time when you have an active 3 year old, 6 year old, and 8 year old running around. We all know, mamas: time is a precious commodity in short supply with busy families on the go. There’s just so many positives to this product, from turning any shoe with shoe laces into a slip on, so the shoe still looks fashionable; not having to worry about my kiddos falling down because of untied shoe laces; saving time by not having to tie (and untie!) my super active (read: super squirmy) 3 year old’s shoe laces; and last but not least, I don’t have to purchase those ugly Velcro slip on shoes (lol you know what I’m talking about, no offense)! I would definitely buy more and I would actually buy some for me too (I have small feet so I can buy an extra large kids 3-4).

I asked my kids if they liked their new laces and they love the cool hot blue color and they are so happy that it takes them no time at all to put their shoes on: Think of all the precious bounce house minutes you can save up! I wish they had these when we were kids!

Laceez are elastic shoelaces that turns any shoe into a slip-on. Basically, you remove old shoe laces from the shoe, lace up the Laceez like you would normally do as the old laces, then at the top inserts of shoe insert the patented aglets (tip of the Laceez, which is what holds the laces together). Voila, you’ve got a stylish slip on shoe!

You can purchase Laceez at: for $6.99. You can also follow them on Facebook, Instagram @mylaceez, Pinterest, and Twitter.  They offer 7 colors and 5 kid size ranges and make great gifts too.
