America will have the chance to vote for their favorite, too. The photo that receives the most votes on pediped.com from September 21 to Oct 2 in each stage, Originals, Grip ‘n’ Go and Flex, will be featured on pediped.com and in pediped® marketing materials.
“We always love meeting customers and making them a part of the pediped® family and we think the Casting Call contest will be a great way to do just that,” said Angela Edgeworth, Founder and President of pediped® footwear.
