Pediped Portia Gladiator Sandals

Most moms have heard of our bought a pair of soft-soled shoes for their little tot from Pediped. I think we can all agree that they make the most adorable, comfortable and flexible shoes around. When your baby transitions into the toddler phase, a good pair of starter shoes is a must. But even I was surprised by just how chic the brand's latest "couture" shoe collection is. From cute mary-janes to trendy gladiator sandals, the new Pediped couture collection has what every little fashionista should have on her pretty feet.

My personal favorite are the 'portia' roman gladiator-style sandals in pink mock-croc leather. The stylish pair feature cushioned soles and Velcro fastening, and the embossed leather exterior has a slight sheen to it so your cutie will stand out among the rest. The couture collection is priced at $42(not bad!) - about $10-15 more than Pediped's original designs. The collection is only available for girls 0-24 months, but let's keep our fingers crossed that the overwhelming success of this collection will nudge the folks at Pediped to expand the collection to include more styles, sizes and, perhaps, even a few boy designs. C'mon, Pediped, throw mama a bone over here. I've got two boys who simply won't wear pink!!!
