Sturdy Shoes for Fearless Feet

If you have a toddler, you know what I mean by "fearless feet." Those little feet will run over any obstacle and into any danger at full-speed. Toddlers are courageous explorers and they need high-quality shoes to help them keep their tread on unsteady ground.

Stride Rite offers those kind of shoes. For example, if you're looking for a shoe for every-day outdoor adventures, you might want to consider one of my two favorites...

There's these little Sportie Slip-Ons in Pink...Sturdy Shoes for Fearless Feet 1

Or these little Sprout tennies in Brown/Sandstone...
Sturdy Shoes for Fearless Feet 2



There are lots of other styles to choose from as well, whether your little one is a
pre-walker, new walker, or full out runner (boy/girl).

WIN IT!
One winner will receive a "surprise" pair of Stride Rite shoes. That's right!

  1. Nana usually buys our SR's because we are on a budget here. DD definitely needs a new pair! If I win, hopefully you will get verification first, but I believe right now dd is a 7.

  2. I love Stride Rite, and actually just started shopping for a good pair of shoes for my fast growing youngster. I can't keep her in shoes, it seems. She wears a size 10 1/2 now. My little girl is growing way too fast.

  3. Stride Rite makes the cutest shoes and my son just outgrew his last pair. Please enter me!! Thanks! rineer.family[at]comcast[dot]net

  4. A new pair of shoes for our little one would certainly be welcome, especially Stride Rites! Thanks for the contest.

  5. Stride Rites have been in my family for two generations...and the newest edition is in the market for shoes for her pretty little feet. Soooo many to choose from and the styles are so cute. Love the baby mary janes and the sneakers with the embrodiery...must have for sure.

  6. Hey Arizona,
    Hello, from the frozen South, We
    had 4in. of snow yesterday! Really
    unusual for us...What Fun!!!!!!
    You have a beautiful site...... Thank you for the chance to win a pair of Stride Rites, My grandbaby could really use these, he is on "Go" from morning till night.....Elaine from Georgia

  7. My son has extra fat and wide feet, Stride Rites will come in so handy, it is so hard to find shoes for him at an affordable price and hey even better when it is free-licious if we can win a pair. :)

  8. Stride Rite is one of two brands of shoes my nephew can wear. He has a wide foot and many brands do not make these. He out grows his Stride Rites. They are lasting shoes. He loves to go play at the store with all the other kids there.

  9. When my older kids started walking, I got them all Stride Rites. I have yet to get my almost two yo her first pair of SR. Her Bday is in a couple of weeks, I would love to have her wear them.
    Count me in.

  10. My little girl only wears Stride Rite-they just fit soooo perfectly! And when I go to the store it takes me FOREVER to decide on a pair (since they are all so cute!) so I love the fact that I wouldn't have to pick the style!!!

  15. I had the prewalkers for my son (who's now 4) and received soo many compliments on them. They were the cutest shoes ever and we saved them in his memory box. Now we have another 2 babies on the way- would love to win a free pair!

  32. A few months ago, my youngest daughter accidentally threw her perfectly brand spankin' new Fall shoe away and left herself with just one (she might as well chucked them altogether!). Certainly she deserves a winning shoe?

    Love Stride Rite. Affordable for the parents and comfortable for the kids!

  33. I am fostering two toddlers, one of whom can ONLY wear Stride-Rite shoes due to his extremely wide feet. I've not seen that style in my local store they are sooooooooo cute!!!

  52. when I was little I was an early walker and my legs bowed out bad! My parents (per my Dr.) had to get me a new pair of Stride Rite shoes once a month to help correct it. I LOVE SR becasue I have them in part to thank for my now perfectly straight legs!
