After actually seeing and feeling them, I would seriously consider paying full price for them. They’re not even in the same neighborhood as Robeez. It’s hard to explain the quality, but I think you can see it quite a bit in the photos. If they had my size, I’d totally wear ’em!
My son was about 14 months old when I bought these, but I chose a size 6-12 months using their printable sizing chart. This is supposed to be equivalent to a 4-4.5 US. I was actually worried that they might be a bit big, especially after reading that a 12 month size usually fits up to around 14 months (my son is quite small for his age.) Above, left is the Pediped compared to a size 3 “crib” style shoe. Right is a size 4 sneaker, the 6-12 month pediped, the size 3 crib shoe, and a size 4 sandal. Keep in mind of course that there’s no bulky rubber sole on the pediped originals.
I’ve eyeballed these shoes since long before a little boy was so much as a thought in my mind. I just love “little man” clothes! Squee!
To compare size: on the left (left to right) is the size 5 pediped flex, 12-18 month pediped originals, size 4 sandals, size 4 sneaker, size 3 crib shoe and size 6-12 month pediped originals. On the right (top to bottom): pediped originals 6-12 month, size 3 crib shoe, size 4 sneaker, size 4 sandal, size 12-18 month pediped originals and size 5 pediped flex.
So do they “flex?” Why, yes. Yes, they do.
I definitely recommend watching the sale categories on both pediped and kinderbliss. I’m still stoked that I got 3 pair for about the cost of one!

[…] affiliate links. We’ve been huge Pediped fans since my 5 year old was a baby. I wrote about the originals when he was wearing them in 2010, and all but one, very loved pair was passed on to his little […]
I wanted to thank you when i read your review i was going to buy pediped from the regular website until you mentioned kinderbliss you saved me more than half off! the changes I am talking about are from their sizing chart 6-12 months is equivalent to 3.5-4 but when you purchase them it says 5-5.5 us pediped contacted me regarding this issue and said they are working hard to fix this issue and they are aware of the problem thank you so much! l
Uh oh, I hope they get that worked out! I’m so glad you saved some money. Enjoy your Pedipeds, we love them!
size has changed in pediped chart
We just bought my son some grip & go a few months ago (this post is about 3 years old!) and I didn’t notice anything. I’ll take a look now and see what has changed, thanks!
I don’t see any changes: http://www.pediped.com/sizing.aspx but maybe I’m just being dense!
We are skipping the Robeez for new baby too. Straight to the Pedipeds. DS LOVED them and he got a million compliments on them too.
Ack, this post is such a mess. A lot of my spacing etc. was messed up when I moved from blogger. :-p
We LOVE Pediped!! My littlest is wearing the grip & go now. 🙂
[…] my son was little, I discovered Pediped originals (I did write about them too if you’re interested.) I liked Pediped better than Robeez as he got older and walked […]
