Rated 1 out of 5Â by Memato6 So cute but awful fit!
I purchased these shoes online for my twin granddaughters. They loved them but could not squeeze their feet into them. They were so disappointed they cried. I must return them.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Grammy runs small
I took my granddaughter to the local Stride Rite store. They measured her for size but they had only two styles to choose from in her size. We saw these shoes on line from Stide Rite and ordered them in the size we were told by the Stride Rite assiciate. When the shoes arrived and she tried them on they did not fit. They run very narrow and were about a haft size too small. In addition there are issues with the light up feature on one of the shoes.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Lexie99 Runs small, so order bigger
This shoe is cute and looks even better on. I bought it for my 3-yr-old daughter who goes to a preschool everyday that has a pretty dusty playground. They've held up well but after many many weeks, the dirt and dust really settled in and it is hard to wipe the shoe clean. The luster and sparkle faded. But otherwise it has held up well. I've had no issues with the straps; they might be a little tight when brand new but after more wear they get easier to pull over the whole foot. Please note that this shoe runs small, maybe due to the toe area being a little narrow and tapered. My daughter measures a size 9.5, and we bought the shoe in size 11 in the store after trying on 10, 10.5, and 11. The 11 allowed for toe room plus a tiny bit more for growing.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by wilesmommyof2 Not what I intended to order but still cute
I thought I had ordered the Sugar and Spice Starlit style and was initially disappointed (as was my daughter) when I received these. Since Stride Rite doesn't offer exchanges we decided to just live with them. Fortunately, my daughter and I started to like them and then after seeing them in her closet, we loved them! They go with all her clothes way more than the others would have. My only criticism is that the lights in these shoes are colors instead of white like I was expecting. I didn't like that but my daughter sure does.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by SouthShoreMom Excellent Sneaker!
Just recently purchased these for my 4 year old daughter. Since it's nearly impossible to escape light-up sneakers upon walking in the store, we had to make a compromise or 2. We tried the Princess Cinderella sneakers on and were shocked by how 'chubby/wide' they made my daughter's foot look, plus the tongue on that sneaker came up way too high! We opted and agreed upon these, seeing that we LOVE pink. The fit on these was actually AMAZING! Had no issues with the shoe being too narrow. That is why I love going into a store to get my child's shoes fitted properly. If they were too narrow, we would have moved onto another pair. Has excellent support, the sales associate fitted my daughter properly. We love them! Pretty, pink, sparkly and perfect.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Evo13 Disappointed.
These shoes, although very cute, are too narrow in the toe. The velcro straps barely close over her feet. Overall the fit was tight. I ordered the size that I was given at the stride rite store, 8W. I had to order them online, because they didn't have wides in this style at the store.
If you need wide shoes, I would look to a different style or maybe extrawide if it is offered. Her most recent pair were a 7 1/2W Mary Jane style that I had no problem with the fit, because the toes were rounded and the strap seemed longer. I would make sure that you can try them on in store either way. Sadly, these shoes will have to go back.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Momof3inFL Cute shoe but runs narrow
I buy a lot of Stride Rite shoes for my daughter, and she is always a "Medium" width ... However, this shoe seems to run slightly Narrow, and I can't pull the velrco straps all the way across the top of her foot. I'm only able to pull them about 1/2 way across, so they still work - but I think in this particular shoe, I should have ordered her a "wide"
Also - the "light ups" on one of the shoes doesn't work very well. She really has to JUMP on that foot for the lights to come on. The other shoe lights up with no problem whenever she walks normally.
But my daughter LOVES her "Sparkly light up shoes" - so it wasn't worth going through the hassel of returning them.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by mom2lilhunt Didnt hold up well!
I bought these for my 2 year old last fall. She loved them. They were really cute and fit her wide foot well. However the leather in the toe area scraped off rather quickly and they looked terrible after. It didnt bother my daughter at all. I was the only one bothered by it. We have purchased stride rite for her since she began walking and we have only had 2 pair that werent up to par. Have really thought of ordering this years' version because I know she would love them. Still considering it...

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Woodcole The best school shoe we have found
This shoe is great for kids to wear all day at school. My oldest daughter, a 3rd grader this year, had this same shoe last year and she wore it every day to school. She loved it because it was comfortable and stylish and I loved it because it was durable and it went with every outfit. It might not be the best athletic shoe but it is definitely a must have for everyday use. My daughter insisted that we buy her the same shoe again this year because she loved it so much. I would definitely recommend this shoe to anyone!
