Pedoodles Eco-friendly Children’s Shoes–Plus Giveaway!

My daughter fell in love with her  Pedoodles Petal Jumpers the minute she pried them out of their eco-friendly box.   These shoes are well-made and comfortable for young walkers.  Flexible rubber soles protect delicate feet from the wet and pebbly ground.   On top of all this, Pedoodles leave a small footprint (pun intended!) because they’re made from “premium leather remnants from furniture.”  The soles are also made from recycled materials.

Joy’s son Roscoe, who sprints, jumps, and gallops through life, hasn’t managed to even scuff up these sturdy shoes yet.  He enjoys wearing them and looks rather dapper in the Blue Bumper Cars design.  We will always give you a truthful review here at The Green Baby Guide, and Joy and I both give these shoes our stamp of approval.

Not all of Pedoodles’ shoes are made from recycled materials, and at first I had trouble seeking out the eco-friendly designs on the website.  Just look for the “eco-friendly” label on some of the shoes in the Next Steps Collection, which will fit children from eight months to about three years old (U.S. sizes 4-9.5).   Pedoodles makes some adorable newborn shoes as well, but these aren’t made from salvaged materials.

Pedoodles are reasonably priced at around $35.00.  I know several dedicated garage sale shoppers who draw the line at used shoes (and underwear!), so it’s good to know that there is the option of getting new shoes made from recycled materials.  They would also make an excellent baby shower gift.

Post a comment by Tuesday and you will be entered to win a pair of these charming shoes.  The winner can choose any of the eco-friendly designs in the Next Steps Collection.


  1. I think Ethan would look adorable in a pair of Tidal Waves. I hope to win!

  2. Oh, I love them already. Thanks for the thorough review. I need to get a pair of shoes for my 14 month old for this winter!

  3. Perfect timing! My daughter is outgrowing all of her summer sandals and we desperately need some new fall shoes, and these look adorable!!!!! Thanks for the heads up, I love finding out about eco friendly products for my daughter!

  4. Thanks for the suggestion on sorting out the eco-friendly designs. I love that the Petal Jumpers aren’t your typically pink girly-shoes, espeically since I have a little girl who love her “boy” shoes. Even better if they hold up to your claim of being scuff-free, even after a hearty romp and gallop.

    Thanks for your review!

  5. I didn’t even know these shoes existed. It’s great that they’re made from recycled materials! My son is 13 months and just took his first step by himself yesterday. I would love to try out a pair on him. Thanks for the info!

  6. What cute shoes! Love that they’re recycled too! Would love to win a pair for the little guy I’m expecting in December!

  7. Love these! Recycled is fantastic!

  8. I’m all for recycled! The shoes are adorable. A walking recycler — what a concept. My little one would love to sport them!

  9. Oh, they’re so lovely! At almost four, Freddie has ideas about what goes on his feet – and I’m having a tough time selling Simple Eco-Sneaks instead of the current nursery school must-have, Skechers.

    But Fiona? She’s not due for three more weeks, and I’ll have a good three years or so of choosing her footwear. Win or not, I’m certain a pair of those Pedal Jumpers are in her future!

  10. I would love to win these!

  11. These are all so cute! I especially love the Tuxedo style.

  12. What adorable shoes! We are in the market for winter shoes for my toddler right now, and it’s great that there are eco-friendly options out there 🙂

  13. My guy is 9 months today and just starting to stand, he will be ready in no time. Thanks for the info.

  14. Oo, those are actually pretty cute. I’ve been considering buying something like this for my little guy, who is hopefully going to walk one of these days (my boys like to take their time, hehe). 35 bucks is rather expensive for kid shoes, though, so I’d love to win a pair for him.

  15. May I have a chance? Those shoes are great! My daughter is only 5 months, but she’s already crawling, so she might be needing them sooner than we expect…

  16. I’m such a lover of baby shoes. There are so many cute ones out there, these included. However, we don’t own any. Still a little too pricey for us.

  17. Wow,
    Those are fabulous. Thanks for sharing about them. It’s good to know that they’re so sturdy too.

  18. I’ve been following your site for a while, but this is my first comment.

    I love these shoes! My favorites are the Sweet Lady Janes- what a cute name, too!

  19. These look fun. I like the idea of green shoes for my 8 month old. Thanks for the review. I love your site.

  20. these could not be cuter, and i love how creatively they are recycled.

  21. That is such a great way to use remnants! Those petal jumpers are ridiculously cute.

  22. These shoes look and sound great! My little guy is outgrowing his shoes fast. Hope I win! Thanks for the opportunity!

  23. I love The Northwoods or The Ranger. Both are very cute. Thanks.

  24. These shoes are so super cute.

  25. These are adorable!!! Crossing my fingers!

  26. Hop, skip and jump for joy – definately! How gorgeous are these shoes . . . only to be a kiddie again . . . at least i can still puddle jump with my lil miss. Fingers crossed here too x.

  27. I knew about these, but not that they were eco-friendly. I’d love to get a pair for my daughter! 🙂 Fingers crossed here also! X

  28. I may never get them off my little girl!

  29. these look awesome! i would love to get a pair for my baby boy

  30. These are great, I love that they use reclaimed leather. My favorite would be the blue bumper cars for my son. The girls shoes are adorable, but unfortunately, it’s all-boy around here.

  31. Wow….I hadn’t even thought about eco-friendly shoes! They’re all sooooooo cute, whoever wins will have a hard time choosing! Thanks for the giveaway!

  32. Doing research on eco shoes for my baby… there are lots of options out there… I also like ScooterBees, Simple, and SoftStar – but these little shoes are super cute too! I hope the leather wasn’t tanned with chromium though…

  33. So cute and it’s great that they are friendly to the earth. I’d love to win a pair because I don’t think I could ever sopend $35 for a pair of baby shoes….

  34. I have recently become more earth friendly than i earlier was. Lately I have shifted to environment friendly detergents, cleaners as also not using disposables that just adds to landfills. But i guess it all of us individually who can bring about a more greener and safer planet. Kudos to Peedodles for finding even more ways.

  35. A new father who recently started CDing and came to the website for a good detergent for the job and I also get entered in a giveaway! Thanks

  36. love the shoes…
    my lil kangaroo would look adorable hopping around in them.

  37. oh so adorable!!!

  38. Thanks to everyone who entered this giveaway! I just chose the winner using a random number generator. The winner is . . . #34: Jennifer! Jennifer, we’ll be contacting you via email.
