pediped® footwear Launches Spring/Summer 2020 Adventure Line with new colors and styles

The Adventure Line is water-safe, machine washable, eco-friendly and perfect for all outdoor activities. 

pediped®’s Adventure Line of high-quality shoes that are perfect for outdoor activities come in an array of new colors and styles. The Adventure Line offers eco-friendly, low-maintenance, water-safe shoes that are rugged and functional, yet provide the style and comfortable fit that pediped® is renowned for.


The Adventure Line is constructed with an eco-friendly, sustainable luxury microfiber that is formulated without any solvents during the manufacturing process. This process results in reduced carbon dioxide emissions, a reduction in water usage and less use of energy. Crafted using water-safe washable material, allowing kids to run, jump and play in all types of outdoor activities, while providing easy shoe cleanup for parents.

The natural rubber sole provides ultimate flexibility, and the toe caps protect feet and provide longer wear for active kids. Velcro straps keep the shoe securely in place while making it easy for kids to pull the shoe on and off. Just like all pediped® shoes, the Adventure Line is lightweight, comfortable and stylish.

As part of its “Bringing the Zoo to You” initiative, offering educational and entertaining activities and content from the Los Angeles Zoo into animal-lovers’ homes during the COVID-19 crisis, the L.A.
