    I really like the quality of these shoes. They usually don’t need replacing until after my child has out grown them and usually another child wrars them after that.

    I’m in my sixties and I wore Stride Rites when I was little. I also bought them for my own kids and now I get them for the little kids in the family. The quality is still there.

    I know for a fact you cannot beat the quality of their shoes. When I was a kid, I wore a quad E shoe width and this is the only place my parents would take me for shoes. Great styles and awesome shoes

    We’ve own a few pairs of stride . rite. Shoes and they definitely hold up better than a lot of other brands we’ve owned. Love the quality and my daughter never complains so they must be comfy!

    I’ve always thought their shoes were so cute, but I love all of the features- especially the no stink lining and that most are available in wide sizes!

    My son has had several pair of these shoes in the past. They are always his favorite…they are just unbeatable in cuteness and comfort.

    I really like Stride Rite shoes. This company makes very high quality products and stands behind their products and will go above and beyond to help customers. Stride Rite was my first job when I was 17 (many years ago) and I was quite surprised the amount of training and extensive courses I had to complete to be able to size children’s feet which is really important in getting the correct shoes in both style and size for your child.

    We are actually deciding between a few Pediped and Stride Rites for our son right now, and its so hard! We’ve narrowed it down to four new pairs, but Stride Rite has just so many great ones this season!
