we know kids’ shoes.

We’ve been a step ahead of kids since 1919. We’re all too familiar with their affinity for mud, their rookie grasp of gravity, and their insatiable desire for dressing up like maniacs, superheroes, princesses, and superhero princess maniacs. So our shoes aren’t just stylish, they’re designed to be up to the task of being worn by kids—and easy on parents.

At Stride Rite, we are passionate about kids. They inspire us in everything we do. That is why we are always looking to find ways for our customers and our associates to give back. Throughout our history, we have been fortunate to partner with amazing organizations such as K.I.D.S, Cradles for Crayons and United Way. And in 2014, we took our commitment to kids to a new level by partnering with Soles4Souls. Learn more about how you can become a champion (of kids) with Stride Rite and Soles4Souls ›
