My family LOVES Stride Rite Shoes—with 30 to 40 tests per shoe to ensure proper fit and durability, I feel confident that they are the best fit for my children’s growing feet. Stride Rite has been the only place I will shop for my children’s shoes, and I have yet to be disappointed. They are incredibly durable (which is so important with the way kids tear up their shoes) and comfortable (which is a necessity for a child learning to walk).

Not only does Stride Rite offer top quality shoes for kids, their customer service is amazing! I always stock up when they are having a sale, but one year, my son’s feet grew too fast and he had already out-grown a pair of shoes I had bought nine months ago. I almost didn’t even bring them back to the store figuring that they wouldn’t accept a return from nine months ago with no receipt, but to my surprise, they happily did! I was able to exchange the shoes that didn’t fit my son for a new pair with no questions asked—after that, I knew I would be a customer for life!

Although I love Stride Rite, they tend to be pricey (quality products usually are!), so I always look for their big sales. They have one each spring and fall and I stock up on shoes for everyone!

Stride Rite is currently offering their Back-to-School Sale: Buy One Get One Half Off!! The sale is valid in stores and online at If you shop online, simply enter the code FALLBOGO to receive your discount. It is a GREAT deal for such high-quality shoes!
