For Party & Play


As one of seven children, ill fitting, bargain shoes were - not surprisingly - the norm. And while it didn’t bother me in the least back then, resulting bunions (a major nuisance for this shoe addict) have left me particularly sensitive about the fit and comfort of Laurel’s footwear.

While there are some terrific soft-soled play shoe options on the market, we love that pediped makes typically unyielding, uncomfortable baby/toddler dress shoes a thing of the past. Offered in sizes 0-24 months, pediped’s collection includes stylish, fun Mary Janes, patent shoes, penny loafers, sandals, and athletic shoes. And perhaps because of the soft-soled construction, their boy and girl kicks can work both at your next party, or just out and about every day, giving parents more bang for their shoe buck. Podiatrists also give this footwear line a thumbs up due to the cushioned leather soles, wide toe box, and soft leather uppers.

The new, funky Zoe shoes in metallic pink are a must have for girls (shown; $29). With cute star cutouts, a glimmering finish, and super comfy construction (not to mention easy on/off Velcro fasteners for parents), your babe can and will want to wear these everywhere.
