be a champion of kids.


every kid deserves a good pair of shoes.

As parents, we stand by kids. Kids that really love shoes. And kids that really needs shoes. That’s why we partner with Soles4Souls to fight poverty in over 127 countries through the donation of new and used shoes.


Help us reach our goal of donating $100,000 this back-to-School Season.

Millions of children around the globe are not allowed to attend school without proper footwear, resulting in the continued cycle of extreme poverty generation after generation. In developed nations such as the United States or Canada, 1 in 5 children live below the national poverty line. When Soles4Souls helps provide a pair of shoes, they are helping bridge the economic gap. For these families, a new pair of shoes provides dignity and hope.

This back-to-school season, you can help Stride Rite reach our goal of donating up to $100,000 to Soles4Souls to send kids back to school around the globe. Stride Rite will donate 1% of its net profit on the sale of shoes to consumers from July 28, 2016 through September 5, 2016.*
