Rated 2 out of 5Â by JillD Shoe falls apart
I bought these shoes from Stride Rite on October 24, 2013.
On the plus side, My 2.5 year old likes these shoes because they light up.
However, he has barely worn the shoes since I purchased them (we live in snowy Boulder so he wears snow boots) but they already have holes in them. The soles are OK, but the seams have all split at the toe of the shoe. He wears a XW so its not due to the shoe being too tight, and I always buy a half size up so his toes aren't touching the top. There is no explanation other than poor quality. I would prefer him to be in a better quality shoe like New Balance or Saucony. I DO NOT recommend!

My 3.5 year old son is super picky about shoes. I can't explain it. He loves, loves these and I appreciate Stride Rite making a durable pair for him to run, jump and play in.

My son wore these shoes for maybe 2 months and the seam has torn on the top of them. The rest of the shoe is in good shape so obviously it's not from wear and tear. Kids shoes should be tougher than this.

Rated 1 out of 5Â by Aqua3 NOT UP TO THE STRIDE RITE STANDARD
PURCHASE THESE FOR MY GRANDCHILDREN, IN LESS THAN TWO MONTHS, THE SHOES SOLES ARE BADLY WORN, THE MATERIAL IS RIPPING ON ALL THREE PAIRS. WE NEVER HAD PROBLEMS WITH STRIDE RITE, BUT THESE SHOES ARE DEFINITELY NOT GOOD QUALITY AND NOT UP TO THE STRIDE RITE STANDARD. DEFINITELY WOULD NOT RECOMMED.

The lights make these shoes popular with my son. So far so good, only have had them less than a month.

My six year old has worn these a few times and I need to send them back. The Velcro strap is falling apart. The one shoe is completely non-wearable; the other is on its way. He has wide feet, and the XW fit him nicely. I am hoping for a replacement pair that will hold up better.

I have been purchasing footwear from Stride Rite for my two kids since they turned 4 months. This pair in 11.5 for my 3 year old which is 37 pounds was a waste of money. not work $5 All the others have been excellent A+. I do not know if quality goes down as the shoe size increases; I am going to try another pair to make sure. If the quality is as good as these I will look to shop for my kids elsewhere.

I ordered these shoes online and my toddler, who usually hates putting on new shoes, was so excited to try these. He jumps and runs around in them everywhere. Very pleased with them and the wide width has been perfect for him.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by NVSpider Very Cute but not durable at all
I love the way these sneakers look and my son loved the light up feature. Based on appearance alone, they were perfect. However, after less than two weeks of wearing them, they got a hole in the toe and I had to return them. My son is tough on shoes but for them to only last two weeks for what they cost seems unreasonable. Stride Rite needs to recognize that kids are tough on the toes of shoes and make them sturdier so they last longer. Based on the quality of the shoe, I would not recommend it.
