Rated 2 out of 5Â by benandmandazmom10 Very disappointed!
My 6 year old just had to have these cool shoes...and I was reluctant because of the cost, but we got them anyway - he is a big Star Wars fan and they were very cool. The coolest part of the shoe is that the light sabers actually light up, right?? well, only for about a month on one shoe and maybe 2 months on the other.
Apparently his friend from school has the same shoes and had the same problem. Wish I had known that before I dropped almost $60 on them!

Great looking sneaker/ shoe but we had the same issue with the seam on the top of the shoe. The stitching came undone after 1 month of use and now there is a gaping hole on the top part of his foot. It's cold here now so I will need to purchase him a new pair. For the price, these should be much more durable!!! Disappointed!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by luvmyboys Very poor quality. Very disappointed.
I purchased these for my 5 year old son in August for school. He loved them, they are very cute. The lights quit working after about two weeks. Disappointing! Now the top seam over his toe has completely come apart and is gaping open. For the price of these shoes I would have hoped they could last more than 3 months. Don't waste your money.

I have spent a small fortune over the past 38 years buying shoes for my children and, now, my grandchildren.
My 5 year old grandson fell in love with these shoes when he saw them in our local Stride Rite store. We bought them and he wore them happily for three weeks before the strap came loose from the body of the shoe. I wanted to exchange them but our store no longer had his size in stock. I went online and ordered the shoes and they arrived promptly within a week. My grandson was ecstatic until, five days later, the Lightsaber on the left shoe failed. I am returning them and trying one more time to get the shoes my grandson loves. However, I have serious doubts about the construction quality of Stride Rite. I don't mind paying more for a well fitting, well built shoe for young, growing feet, but I wonder if the extra money is buying what was once a superior product.

My son loves the shoes but was quite disappointed that the lightsaber on one of the shoes stopped working after the fifth time that he wore the shoes.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by luvmyboy comfort fit but problem with the lights
As the other reviewers indicated, the lights stopped working on one side within one week. The second pair stopped working within 24 hours. I'll give a third pair a chance before going with a different brand.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by SpencersMom Perfect shoe for my Little Jedi
Great shoe-Spencer loves them for the Star Wars factor. I love them for wide sizing, arch support and they last. We've had Star Wars shoes from size 12.5W to our last purchase of 3W morphing light saber. We always have two pairs to give the other a break from our very active little Padiwan! He outgrowns the shoes before the light feature gives out. Look great too. Thank you Stride Rite and please make these in larger sizes especially when the movies come out over the next few years. Boys will want them!

After only a few weeks of wear, the lights on one shoe do not work anymore. Otherwise, cute shoe.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by IDCB Great look, poor quality
My son is a Star Wars fan he felt in love with the shoes. They look great when new the idea is very nice but the "lightsaber" did not light anymore after a week of use. After two weeks they start showing the use.
I would not buy them again.
