Rated 1 out of 5Â by msemm Almost unwearable
I bought these as a bridge between two sizes of my son's made-2-plays which I love. When he runs, and he never walks, the hard plastic closure tab rubs against the front of his ankle. I try to fasten the velcro so that the tab is away from him but it is so short thats not really possible. I am now trimming it with a scissors which looks terrible but thats the only way he can wear them. We haven't had problems with fraying because he only wears them on the odd morning that the made-2-plays are hiding from me. Really disappointed. I would have taken them back but the store is an hour away.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Spidey's Mom Not StrideRite Quality
Bought these for my Spidey-obsessed 3-year-old. They are exactly the shoes he wanted in terms of styling--he loves how they light up, and he loves that the lights are on the top, where he can see them. Unfortunately, the stitching near the big toe on both shoes has come undone after only six weeks or so of wear, so that there are visible holes in the upper. I'm very loyal to StrideRite, and we typically buy new sneakers only twice/year; it's always growing feet that makes the purchase necessary, never that the shoe has fallen apart. I'm afraid these don't live up to StrideRite's trademark quality. I expect more from StrideRite, and I expect more from shoes at this price point.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by MrsJK Cute design, stitching didn't hold up!
My 4 year old fell in love with these the moment he saw them. The design is great and the lights continue to work. Sadly, after only a few months of wearing them, all of the stitching on the toes of both shoes have come undone. My son is quite active, but living in the Northeast and having had a very snowy winter, he has mainly just been wearing these to and from school, not even outside to play. I decided on spending the $$ on Stride Rite thinking these sneakers would hold up longer than just a few months. He can't even wear them to/from school now b/c the holes are so bad that snow gets in and his socks get drenched. Overall, I am really disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by swtpeasmam These shoes are AWESOME!
My son is currently 22 months and a size 7.5 shoe. He was transitioning from the baby sizes to toddler and I wasn't sure what to expect so I bought the next size up. The day comes when I pull them out of the box and try them on his feet. HE LOVES THEM! I take them off and after his bath he puts them on (backwards) and goes to lay down in his bed. He has a fit when I try to remove them so I wait till he falls asleep. The next morning he wakes up to put them on himself again! The shoes are amazingly durable and easy to clean with a baby wipe when the lighted eyes are dirty. They got wet one day and one shoe didn't light back up till the shoe dried up. Worth every penny! And he has no idea who spiderman is.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Silly Baba, Silly Mama Cool lights and great sneaker
My son is almost 3 and loved these shoes the moment he entered the store. I wasn't intending on buying sneakers, but before I knew it he kicked off his boots and had the the display ones one. We got the shoes in his size and he lit up with glee. The lights work well with no issues, hope they last a long time as that's what he loved. The sneakers are also good qualify with superior grip and they are also flexible. I do a bend test before buying any shoes for him and this one held up. We exclusively wear Stride Rite and Keen shoes so I am very happy with this purchase. I think it'll last a long time.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Jlamyx Poor Quality
My grandson loved these shoes so we really tried to make them work! We tried 4 pairs but had to send all four back. Within two weeks of first wear, all 4 pairs either had trouble "lighting up" or the stitching came undone. We finally just took credit for a later purchase. I would rate a zero if that was an option. Way below Stride Rite's normal quality standards!

My 2 1/2 year old son is obsessed with Spider Man and other super heroes. Since he has gotten a little older we have ventured out to purchase other brand sneakers for him but find that not many brands such as Nike cater to wide width like Stride Rite. These sneakers are wide as promised and are quality. Both he and I are happy with the sneakers and the quality of them.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by SpideyShoes Stitiching coming apart
My son picked these shoes about three weeks ago in store. They look great out of the box except for the first pair that was brough out the lights didnt work so they had to get another pair and that one was fine. My son loved these shoes so much but I wish they held up better. After about two weeks I noticed the stitching coming out and sticking out on the shoe by three weeks they looked like a mess stitching hanging out everywhere, I brought them back to the store without any problem. We also have the Captin America and they are similar style and we had no issue with those.

My son in two and a half and he loves these shoes. It was very hard to find him a pair of shoes that were wide enough and easy to put on and they are perfect. I have had them for almost 5 months and the quality is amazing. They are worth every penny!
