Rated 2 out of 5Â by LittleMissMommy Great fit - TERRIBLE SMELL!
These shoes are so cute and fit my son so well! Unfortunately, after only a day or two of normal wear, the smell in this "anti-stink" shoe was unbearable! Even after a round in the washing machine they were unwearable. This is our fourth pair of Stride Rite shoes and we've never had this problem before. So while these shoes have a lot of great features, I'd steer clear! Fortunately, our local store was willing to exchange these for a different style of shoe (and reported having others report the same issue) and so far those are working out great.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by HarshWisdom Good Selection From Limited Options
My 14 month old has XW feet. It is nearly impossible to find shoes that fit him correctly. I am very thankful that Stride Rite has the XW and XXW options. Although, I think that the selection narrows so greatly when browsing for XW or XXW. I would like for my little one to be able to wear some adorable fashion forward (for a toddler that is) shoes when I am showing him off. =) The last thing I want is for him to wear the black and white velcro shoes. These are a great option that pairs style with just the RITE fit. Also, I ordered the shoes with standard shipping, but they arrived within two days!!! LOVE THAT!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by 2boysPA stinky feet
Adorable sandals, perfect for little guys for summer, (my son is 1.5 years) except they get VERY stinky very easily. I've never had a problem with this style in the past (I also have a 4 year old and we've bought these shoes the last few summers) but the new "anti-stink" liner has really backfired! I wash these shoes at least once a week (I could wash them everyday..) and nothing will get the smell out...I have resorted to having my little guy wear a thin sock to daycare with these shoes because i am embarrassed by the smell. no other pair of stride rite have done this before!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by NathanielMom SERIOUSLY STINKY FEET!
LOVE these shoes, other than that they stink to high heaven, even AFTER being washed in the washing machine. I literally had to open the window in the car when he took them off in the back seat last week. So much for the anti-stinky feature. None of my two year old son's other shoes have a problem with smell, but this pair is AWFUL!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by popcorn Great for the summer months
My grandson's daycare discourages wearing open toe shoes. I bought him a blue pair and light brown pair, because of the mesh, thought it would keep his feet cool as we head into the summer. He loves wearing them.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Coverstreet Sooo cute!
These sandals are adorable. My son like them too. They have wore a blister on his pinky toe. I checked his size with the available size chart before ordering. The size chart indicated he needed a 9 wide and thats what i ordered. But i probably should have got extra wide. I'm hoping that they will get better with time. I let him wear them in the water so he doesn't fall down and they have held up great thus far.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Niths Great summer sandal!
My 2 1/2 year old is very comfortable wearing this shoe. He wears shoe size 10, so I bought this sandal 1/2 size smaller. I selected this because of the pull out tab in back, which I am teaching him to pull when he wears his shoe. It works out great.

We purchased the W width and they fit great! We loved these so much that we purchased both the navy and brown for our son! He loves them too...a REAL PLUS!!!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by jrm64152 Best summer shoe ever!
I bought these a little big so my son could wear them this summer but he has grown into them a little earlier than expected, so I'll likely buy a second pair of the very same shoe (first time I will have done that for him). GREAT looking shoe and they seem to be very comfortable (I want a pair). AWESOME that they are washable since he wears them w/out socks.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by sherry500 Pretty good buy
I've always bought Stride Rite for my boys, so I thought these would be great! They are wonderful except for the anti-stink factor. After wearing several times sockless, the sandals made my 18 month old's feet stink. I washed them, and even though they held up great in the washing machine, they still smelled like feet. I wonder what the problem could be, because I've never had this problem before with Stride Rite sandals. I bought the exact same pair for my 3 year old, and those sandals are perfect. No stink!
