Have you started thinking about Back to school yet? I know, it's hard to do since we are right in middle of summer - but let's face it we will be sending our kids back to school in no time. I still can't believe I will have a first grader this year!
I like to begin my back to school shopping early, and I like to do it online to avoid the crowd, be inside in the A/C, and save some gas money! I learnt my lesson last year when I went the week before school started to go shopping. I guess everyone did the same thing I did and procrastinated. This year-that will not be happening.
While I was doing some early back to school online shopping, I came across a great site called TinySoles.
Here is a little about TinySoles before I begin my review:
TinySoles is a shoe store dedicated to providing the most complete selection of stylish, comfortable shoes for babies, infants, toddlers and kids. TinySoles personally test all of their shoe brands on their own kids first and if they don't love them, they won't sell them! What a great philosophy!
Some great brands that TinySoles carry are pediped, Keen, Merrell Kids, Robeez, See Kai Run, & Stride Rite!
For our review I was allowed to choose a pair of shoes, and let me tell you the decision was not an easy one! They have SO many great brands and such a great selection. But in the end, I ended up choosing a pair of shoes my son can wear to school and something I know that will last.
pediped Flex Jones (Blue)
I have been a pediped fan for a while now, my youngest son has a pair that I purchased and they have lasted longer than any other shoe I have ever bought for my children.
The pediped Flex Jones is a pretty awesome shoe, it has a casual yet sporty look, and you know what else I love about these? The Velcro strap! Last year I cannot tell you how many times my son would come home with his shoes untied. Tying shoes is something we are definitely working on this summer. I also love the upper Suede material which is super easy to clean compared to cloth! The rubber soles are extremely flexible and are not stiff at all and fit my sons foot perfectly.
pediped also has a great thing called the Flex Fit System. It provides additional insoles that can be inserted for a snug fit then removed for room as your child's foot grows. These insoles can reduce shoe size by almost half a size, extending the life of the shoe.
The last pair of pediped's I purchased I bought them big on purpose, and I chose to get a size bigger with these as well just for the fact that they have the Flex Fit System. Which does really work, and in the long run saves me money because I am not buying shoes as often!
Not only are pediped shoes stylish but they are extremely good for your little ones feet. They have been approved by the American Podiatric Medical Association for promoting healthy foot development. Just take a look at the chart above and you will see some of the reason's why pediped is so great.
So as you may have noticed I am totally in love with pediped's Flex Jones shoes but I am also very much in love with TinySoles.
Not only do they have a great selection of children's shoes but they also have some great accessories such as bags, socks, hair clips, and raincoats. Not only can you get all your favorite shoe brands but you can also get all your other back to school necessities at Tiny Soles.
They have an excellent shipping policy as well - all orders $20 and over ship for FREE! Which by they way, they ship super fast!
I am extremely satisfied with the pediped Flex Jones shoes but even more so with TinySoles. Their customer service reps are extremely helpful, their site is easy to navigate, and like I mentioned before they have super fast shipping. TinySoles also stocks all shoes in house, which means if you can put it
in your cart it will ship the same day. They also offer a new deal daily Monday through Friday at an amazing
price until it’s gone!
The pediped Flex Jones retail for $44 but are currently on sale for $40 (what a bargain!) and will ship for FREE automatically.
A huge thank you to TinySoles for letting us review a pair of shoes. We are going to be long time customers!
