pediped® Announces Official Shoe Naming Contest

Children’s footwear brand will name a shoe after one of its greatest fans

Henderson, Nev. (December 2014) — Award-winning children’s footwear brand pediped® will name a new style after one of its fans. Parents and caregivers around the world have the opportunity to submit their child’s name for the chance at naming a pediped® shoe after him or her. The winning name will be used for a style in the pediped® Spring/Summer 2016 Collection.  The contest will be hosted on Instagram and fans must follow @pedipedfootwear to participate.

To enter the contest, fans must post a picture of their child, with his or her name, and the reason why pediped® should name a shoe after him or her. The photo must be posted with the contest hashtag #namethatpediped and the pediped® Instagram account must be tagged as @pedipedfootwear.

“We are very excited to get our fans more involved in helping us name new styles”, said founder Angela Edgeworth. “In the past we have used names that our customers recommended, and we have named styles after previous models and employee’s children, but never after one of our biggest fans. I know my girls love having a shoe named after them. It’s unique and exciting!”.

Photo entries will be accepted until 11:59pm PST on January 11, 2015. The winner will receive a $100 pediped gift card and a free pair of the style named. pediped® will announce the winner in February upon the official launch of the Spring/Summer 2015 Collection.
