My kids love to play, and stay active. You always find them in sneakers because they make them run faster. I’ve always been a fan of Stride Rite because I know they put a lot of thought into how kids play and what their feet need. They are taking it a step further now by really thinking about the parents and making the shoes machine washable.
My daughter is a sneaker kid. She always has her sneakers on. From the moment she’s dress to when it’s pj time her feet are wearing sneakers. It’s no surprise when I say that her shoes need to be washed because she’s a kid and walks through things that I wouldn’t and plays hard on the playground, which is mulch and dirt.
There’s also a comfort factor with their shoes. They have the memory foam sole insert and there’s always enough cushion in the heel, and to date none of my kids have gotten a blister from Stride Rite shoes.

With the Made to Play sneakers I know I’m getting quality. I’ve bought the cheaper shoes, but they don’t last like Stride Rite. I also love that they have these Terry Mary Jane sneakers. She still looks nice, but can play and have fun. The boys styles are also great, and they even have a limited edition Star Wars line.
That’s not all with winter time coming you’ll want to get the kids some Snoots. It’s a sneaker and boot combined. I’m loving the idea that I won’t have to send in an extra pair of shoes with these, and they styles are great. I bought some for the kids and they can’t wait for it to snow.
Overall a child having the proper shoes is the most important thing so make sure they are fitted correctly and they feel comfortable in them.
