Rated 2 out of 5Â by Scott The Bartender Falling apart after 2 Months
I got these as a Christmas gift for my four year old. By the middle of February one of the lightsabre lights has stopped working and the stitching on the toe is coming undone so much I can put my finger through and feel his toes.
I am officially through buying anymore Stride Rite shoes. The last two pairs I wasted my money on were very low quality. I expect far more from Stride Rite shoes based on the price and the old reputation. Heck... I expect more from Payless shoes.
On the positive side, I had to call customer service to correct an order and they were very helpful and friendly.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Chitownmomma Same light problem
Like everyone else said, the lights are out on the shoes within 2 weeks. My kids still like them and they fit well and they were on sale so I still am okay with them. Just think everyone should go into these knowing the lights are very short lived!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by BburgBulldog Great Velcro closure
My son has only been wearing these for about a week, so I cannot yet comment on the durability. I purposely ordered a half size larger than he's currently wearing since it is winter and we mostly wear boots (I intend for him to wear these more in the spring). They fit nicely on his extra wide feet, and although they're a bit big now, he doesn't trip while wearing them. We are not Star Wars fans but I chose these shoes because of the sale price and the colors. They do not scream Star Wars; they are tastefully designed. My son loves that he can change the flashing lights on each shoe to either blue or red with the push of a button. I'm impressed by the double Velcro closures, one of which has elastic to ensure snugness. One of the Velcro straps actually adheres to both the tongue and side of the shoe. They definitely grip the feet nicely and I'll be shocked if they ever become loose or come off as he's wearing them!

Rated 2 out of 5Â by NanaG Nice shoes, but....
Bought these for my grandson, and he loves them. Lights on one shoe went out on fifth day of wearing. Exchanged pair at store, quite easily and quickly. So far the second pair are OK, but it has only been a couple of weeks. The way they latch is nice and tight and secure- much better than some other types of closures. Rating would be higher if the lights worked better.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Loribelle Buyer beware!
We are on our second pair of these shoes and may soon be on our third. We love the style of the shoe and my son loved the lights but after about 2 months the lights on one side stopped working. I took them back and they were replaced at no charge but now 2 months after that both aren't working again. I am working on getting them replaced but it is a pain to drive all the way to the s corporate store which is over an hour away from us. The one closest to us is a Joy stride rite and won't honor the corporate coupons or sales but that is another story. We love stride rite shoes but this model is a bust!

Â by 17sirens Great for Halloween!
These shoes look even better in person. I loved the overall quality of these shoes. Very cushioned and comfortable with good support. The two velcro straps on these shoes makes it very easy for my toddler to wear and the straps are sturdy but not too difficult to open, great feature for little ones. My son fell in love with the light up feature on these shoes, as did Iâ it's a great safety feature. The lights alternate in blue and red as per the theme of the shoe and he loves wearing these wherever he goes. I received a sample of this shoe to facilitate my review.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by nada Don't get me wrong I do love these shoes. However, the first pair I received via online, one shoe wouldn't light up all the time so I exchanged at the store. The new pair worked in the store but a day later one shoe won't work at all. Very disappointing since it is a very nice shoe and I don't have time or extra shoes, that fit at the moment, to go back again. I hope they fix this problem for future buyers.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Penelope Comfortable, Well made, Fun Light Up Feature
These shoes are really well made and comfortable, with good support, cushioning, a very sturdy rubber sole and the overall quality is excellent. The velcro straps make it easy to open and close, and the mouth of the shoe opens up quite a bit to make it easy to get on and off my son's foot. He LOVES the lights (red and blue), and wears them around the house now all the time. I received a sample of this shoe to facilitate my review.
