Rated 1 out of 5Â by unahappy don't buy
I bought two pairs of these shoes for both of my daughters in the spring. Both pairs are falling apart in the exact same places which makes me think that there is a defect in the design of the shoe. The fabric is pulling away from the heal of the shoe. Also, on the top of the shoe the rubber toe guard is ripping and pulling away from the fabric as well. Also, the shoe does not breath well at all which causes both girls feet to sweat a great deal. I was hoping these shoes would last for the summer, but only after a few wears we are going to have to go shopping again probably not at Stride Rite.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by KRSBMom Won't Buy Again
We bought these for our daughter as her summer active shoes. Unfortunately, as indicated in another review the fabric inside the back heel strap is coming loose and rolling down. The material also doesn't breathe well and makes her feet sweat. The shoe also seems wide in the heel and ankle causing our daughter to over tighten the strap which makes the strap curl up. We have turned to Stride Rite time and time again for 8 years for fit and quality for our kid's wide feet. But it seems the quality isn't quite what it used to be. We even bought this version, paying more, over a discount store version thinking they would hold up better. Maybe we should have just gone with the cheaper version.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by sidekick Great everyday shoes
I got the pink for my 6 year old daughter. I actually ordered 13.5 by accident (I mean to order 13), but since you can adjust the straps they stay on OK. (Straps adjust on the back and front)
My daughter loves these. They are super comfy, and they have a very durable rubber toe which is a must because she drags her feet while riding bikes on the playground. I have sent her to school with other shoes with non-rubber toes and they were destroyed after one day of play.
My one complaint is the velcro straps have stretched so there is not much velcro area left to make contact (if that makes sense). I could probably add more velcro to solve the issue. It might be bc the size is a half size too big so she is having to tighten them more than normal too.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by momof2inmo Comfortable but falling apart after four wears.
These were to be my daughter's every day summer shoes. She has only worn them four times (to school) and I noticed they have started to tear. More specifically, the fabric lining on the inside of the heel area of both shoes has torn and has curled down. I've never been disappointed in a pair of Stride Rite shoes until now. It's a shame too because my daughter picked these out herself and according to her they are really very comfortable.
