Stride Rite was so very kind to offer me a pair of their sneakers for my son to try out. I was so glad to see that they had some Toddler sneakers with Velcro as we are still working on mastering the art of tying shoes. So I chose the Toddler Walker Shoes in Blue. My son is very particular on the sneakers he’ll let me buy, as he’s kind of obsessed with the color blue and has grown fond of his old pair. But when they arrived I convinced him to give them a try by running circles around our main level of our house. He came back saying,”Mommy, I really do like these new shoes! Thanks for making me try them.” LOL.
My daughter has had a Stride Rite sneakers for a year now and worn them pretty much everywhere we go and they have held up amazingly. I’ve tried a few inexpensive off-brands but my kids are just so active that they rip apart the soles fairly fast and I usually end up buying two pair, depleting my savings. I’m now convinced that while they are going through just the one size a year that I will continue to pay the extra for the better quality shoes.
Now is a good time to try them, too, as they have that Buy One Get One Half Off Sale Going on. Hope you are able to find a great pair that you’ll kids will love, too!
Disclaimer: A special Thank You to Stride Rite for giving me a chance to test out their shoes for my son now, too. It will be the ultimate test as he has endless energy, running constantly everywhere!! I always provide honest reviews and let my sponsors know this before accepting any offers.
