One of my all time favorite brand of kids shoes is Pediped. They are on the pricier side of shoes when it comes to kids shoes but the price tag is well worth the cost. Logan is now 7 and tears through sneakers. My mom bought him ones for school that were expensive (because she is grandma and that is what Grandmas do, spoil the grandchildren) and with in a few weeks the coloring was scrapped off of them and the looked dingy. No cleaning would get them clean either (I tried).
Up until now when looking for shoes it was more of what it cute and good for my kids feet, now with Logan its those plus what will stand up to the rough and tumble of a boy. My answer is Pediped, he can run in gym or recess, drag his feet when he is walking and they don’t get all scuffed. Sure they get dirty but a quick run through the washer then sit out for a day to dry and the look good as new. With him having a shoe that is going to last until his feet need new shoes (since his feet are growing crazy fast) is important. Buying a new pair of shoes for him every few weeks is not in the budget and spending the few extra bucks on quality shoes that will stand up to his active play are much better then me buying cheap ones and having to keep replacing them.
We were sent the Saturn Navy Orange sneakers, Logan loved the colors and they make just about any outfit he wants to wear! He is bing on the color orange this year so seeing orange in the sneakers he was sent made his day 🙂
