Not quite how they look online but still a great shoe! I ordered these shoes thinking that they were a taupey grey-brown with a white sole, they're actually like a chocolate brown with a tan sole. But that's ok! They fit my son really well and he seems able to walk and stand easily in them. We will definitely be ordering from stride rite again

BEST Shoes For New Walkers I got these free to review **BUT this is an honest review. These shoes are really well made and I think I could easily pass them on to a sibling after my son grows out of them. The sole is flexible and unlike your average sneaker. They must be very comfortable because my son prefers them now to his other sneakers. I do think they are a bit narrow, glad I bought the narrow ones or I'd have had to return and exchange them, but true to size. I would recommend these shoes and I plan on buying a pair of soft motions when my 4 month old gets older.

Enthusiastic Two Thumbs UP! I received these free through BzzAgent, and was really excited to try them out, although I was skeptical that a toddler shoe could really be anything but typical. I was surprised. My baby boy has chubby feet. I struggle to get his feet in most shoes. These, due to the sizing, do not have that problem. They are wide open, and a snap to put on. No fuss. They are light, and very flexible, which makes walking and running practice less dangerous. My toddler face plants a lot in most shoes, as he trips over his own feet, especially when the shoes are bulky or heavy. Not with these shoes. They protect his feet, but give him the freedom he has when he is barefoot. I love them!!!

Another Great Shoe! Beginning with my oldest child's first pair of shoes, I have always bought Stride Rite and always will. The Soft Motion line of shoes are simply the BEST for new and young walkers. The shoes help my toddler to be steady on his feet and seem to "mold" to his foot- the memory foam must be comfortable because my little guy does NOT like to wear shoes and he keeps these on! The styles are trendy and I wish the sizes ran bigger! My "baby" is off of the charts in weight, height, head size, etc. At only 21 months he wears a 3T, and unfortunately this line won't fit his young feet much longer. My only complaint is that I wish the straps were longer on the W and XW sizes. With a pudgy foot, the straps barely reach across the shoes. While I have purchased Stride Rite continually in the past, and will in the future, I tried these shoes for free thanks to Stride Rite and BzzAgent.

Great First Shoe, Minor Complaints My main complaint is that with only one strip of velcro to secure the shoe, my son can easily undo it and take the shoes off. We've nearly lost a shoe on many stroller rides when he's removed it. Also, I would note that though we bought the shoe in a wide size, it's still pretty snug on my little one's chubby feet. Note: these shoes were received as part of a BzzAgent Campaign in exchange for feedback.
