Today we are talking about back to school shoes. Not just any shoes, but adorable shoes for kids that are my must-have for going back to school. Yes, after this long break, many parents are ready for the little ones to go back to school but we want them to start off on the right foot. Well, at least in the right shoes!
Back to school fashion is so important because if the child feels good in what they are wearing on the first day, it sets the tone for how they will feel about going back. If they helped pick out their outfit and shoes and feel confident and ready to take over the world (or school!), that first day will hopefully go that much smoother.
This year (just like previous years!), my kids are going back to school in pediped shoes! They have been wearing pedipeds since they were teeny-tiny and they still love picking out their new styles for the year.
Check out some of these old photos of my kids and look at their feet! Pedipeds! This was our annual photo in the leaves when my little guy was just a toddler! He’s going into first grade now. Sniff. Sniff.

This was my daughter on her first day of kindergarten! Sure, they lost her on the bus on the way home but at least her feet were comfortable! 🙂
And first day of first grade? Yep, adorable silver pedipeds!
So, let’s get out of memory lane and get back to Baby Gizmo Must Have Monday! The new fall pediped collection is out and many new styles have been added this season, including a range of back to school shoes available in larger sizes up to 38 (US Youth 6). That is fabulous for my 5th grader who can still fit in pedipeds!!
Featured in the collection are Mary Janes, sneakers and everyday styles! The Originals® collection got a lux update with fourteen new styles including a friendly owl named Jazzie. New machine washable options are added in both Grip ‘n’ Go™ and Flex®, and more than ten new styles are available for back to school including the highly anticipated styles offered up to size 38, Ann, Alex and Highlander.
These are my son’s Highlanders that he is wearing for the first day of school!
As we explored the news styles, here is what we found…
There are 14 new styles in the Originals® line for newborn to 24 months including favorites Aryanna, Connie and Grayson. Available in soft suede is Brittany and Jazzie, and new styles Gordon and Clive are stylish neutrals crafted from genuine leather and suede.
There are 8 new Grip ‘n’ Go™ styles including genuine leather options Lorraine and Starlite. Two new machine washable styles are added with Gehrig and Franklin. Remember the Grip ‘n’ Go have special feature G2 Technology™, making it the perfect shoe for active toddlers transitioning from early walking to a confident stride.
In the Flex® line for the established walker who has developed a confident, natural stride, Ann, Sarah, and Highlander are some of our favorite new choices!
