My baby is so comfortable wearing these shoes, they are soft and good quality. They are so easy to put in and she cannot take them off. She is 11 months and I bought size 4, they are a little big, but not too much. I love them.

These are cute but Stride Rite Toddler shoes tend to be much stiffer (in the leather and the sole) than the Infant versions. These shoes would take a bit of "breaking in" for my toddler to be able to put them on and wear them comfortably.

The lights on one shoe stayed on constantly the second time my daughter wore the shoes. After a couple of days of being on constantly, the lights died.

My daughter has wide feet with a high instep and these were perfect! She said they are very comfortable and very cushiony. They are sturdy enough for recess and perfect for uniforms or just a good solid school shoe. They do scuff easily though.

These are great shoes. Stride Rite is always a winner. Really cute, well made, and good support for growing feet. They run true to size in length. My grandson does not usually take a wide, but he probably could have done with wide in these shoes - on one foot, you have to pull to get the velcro together.

Stride Rite are the only shoes my daughter can wear. I appreciate that they come in wide, they're durable, and most scuffs can be wiped off. Great shoe for the price.

Not sure what is different about this shoe but my 4 year old's ankle was bloody when she took them off from the strap rubbing up against her. (she even had socks on) She LOVES mary jane style shoes and that is pretty much all she will wear. This is the only pair that we've had that problem with. :( She won't let me return them because they are Ariel so I'm not sure what we are going to do.

We have wide feet and find it challenging to find good looking shoes that fit well. The shoes fit my child well and met our expectations in all ways.

This shoe is adorable. I have a 2-year-old with big feet -- measured at 9.5 XW at the Stride Rite store, so I bought these for him. He has wide feet, and also 'tall' feet (high instep) It's nice to have a neutral shoe choice for him that isn't covered in neon colors from toe to heel. Unfortunately, it's really hard to get these shoes onto his feet. He isn't able to push much on his own (he doesn't understand that concept very well yet), and he says "ouch!" sometimes while I'm putting them on. I think the problem is that the elastic band that is stretched across the top is too tight, so even though the shoe has a hook-and-loop strap, your kid has to be able to shove his heel down into the shoe in order to get these to fit. We did like some other styles: the Stride Rite Christopher is awesome in fit because of the double velcro straps (although not as cute). The Saucony Kids Baby Ride 7 is super lightweight and fits perfectly, but comes in funky colors.

I bought this shoe along with a Saucony brand. They are a little heavier than the Saucony shoe. I am also not a fan of the two velcro straps, I prefer the X style elastic with one velcro strap on top, but I didn't know I didn't like it until we got it in person. They are nice shoes, and they seem that they will hold up to a 2 1/2 year old well. They are also easy to get on and off, which is perfect for a child learning to put them on. Overall I would buy this brand again! Wish our Stride Rite outlet near us would carry more in his size so we could try on in store, but happy to have Zappos!

I have bought these over the years for my son for school. I always seem to come back to these shoes when others disappoint. I only gave it four stars because I think they look worn a bit too soon, but they structurally hold up. I have found this with other stride right shoes. Maybe my son is very hard on shoes. Overall good buy and worth the money.

This shoe is true to size and very durable. Easy to wipe down and does not scuff easy. Bought for both my kids as their first walking shoe and helped them learn to walk with shoes on! My whole family used these as first pair of walking shoes, try it!

Excellent shoe! My 6-year old has extra wide feet and rejects most new shoes. The XW fit him so well that I also ordered the next size up, just so I'd have it when he outgrows these. The shoe is also super lightweight but seemingly durable. Had never ordered Stride Rite shoes before but I'm now a fan.

Great buy, no problems of any kind, true size and width. I bought a W size 1. I have worn everyday for the last three months and they are still going strong! I highly recommend these! They are a great looking style, too!

Illinois winters bring a variety of weather conditions, so I purchased these as an in between boot for my son. Just as all other Stride Rite shoes that I have purchased, they have been great. The hook and loop closure make them easy for him to put on. The tread on the bottom is also good for walking through snow. The design makes the shoe dressy enough for church, but casual enough for jeans.

Cute but difficult to put on/off. I would consider getting these again but only when my son is old enough to do it himself and not resisting.

These little beauties are just the CUTEST THINGS! I bought these for my niece and couldn't stop smiling when I saw them right out of the box. They are even cuter in person than in the picture supplied here. Her mother says they are perfect and she looks so adorable in them. I've told everyone I know that they should get these for someone special in their lives. We did end up returning the first pair because they were a bit snug (should have used the size chart...it was spot on for the second pair). Return was super easy and shipping was very quick on both orders. My advice and get a pair before they are gone! :)

This shoe is fantastic! My 21-month old son has extra wide feet and finding shoes for chubby feet is difficult. I originally purchased the New Balance Kids KV990I tennis shoe in 8 XW and they were tight. I returned them and purchased this shoe in 8 XW. They are easy to put on and off. The Velcro straps are long and go over his entire foot with no problem. They are good looking shoes that can be worn casually or dressy. My son runs around in them all day long. For weeks he was telling and showing everyone his "new shoes".

Excellent shoe for 2.5 yr old. Durable, stylish, versatile. Sometimes stride rite can have a babyish look. Love the pink and blue. Good toe design, not as easy to scuff, scratch. Solid velcro strap but flexible for comfort. Highly recommend. Perfect fit.

I am very pleased with my purchase. I went to a Stride Rite outlet store only to find their stock depleted. I knew what size I needed and was able to get my son's school shoes very quickly and for a reasonable price. The shoe is very sturdy, with thick sole and leather uppers.
