I want these in adult sizes! The memory foam sole makes them the comfiest shoes my daughter owns.

Oh, THANK YOU for continuing to have this style of shoe! I have been buying this same shoe for many years for my girls for the cooler months. They get one pair of sneakers and one pair of dress shoes. A strap is a must for them as they like to still run around after church and cushioning just makes these so much more enjoyable for them to wear. They run to true to size and my girls love the ease of putting them on. They fit nicely with or without tights and don't rub or take any time to break in. Thrilled.

I have purchased this same sandal for many years for my daughters. It is hard to find a dressy sandal that is not completely flat. They like to run around after church, and I like the fact that they can do that and not stub toes or fall out of their shoes. These are nicely padded underneath and the backstrap is also padded at the heel. The sizing was tricky, as this fit in a full size down than her normal Stride Rite sneakers. She is also a wide in the sneakers, but a regular in this shoe. Eternally thankful for Zappos and their wonderful customer service. Have been shopping here for 14 years!

I got these for my granddaughter and they fit well, look adorable, and must be comfortable because she didn’t rip them off, which is what she does with a lot of shoes. They seemed to help her stability on wet pool decks and the beach as well.

These shoes are nice enough that I bought them again for my kiddo, and she loved them, but they felt a little stiffer (both in the sole and in the leather) than I would like. But a good durable shoe, and quite cute.

Great shoes for my daughter. They have a good footbed. She gets blisters REALLY easily, and she didn't get many with these shoes. I also like how the toes are a little more protected than sandals that are completely open.

The sparkle and shine factor with these shoes did not disappoint our 4-year-old who would wear them all day and night. They are also easy to get on and off. The only downfall was when after about a week of wearing the shoes to school, one of the shoes had a spot where the fabric wore through to the the under layer. I'm not returning them because they are loved and she doesn't care about the small hole but I expected more from the Stride Rite brand.

For my child with VERY wide feet these seem to be one of the only long lasting shoe that she can wear for more than 2 months (if she doesn't grow out of them). We have had to buy these shoes several times due to limited wide options but have never had to send them back. Great shoes! wish someone would make more cute and WIDE options....

I purchased these for my great grandson, they are attractive and fit well. He is learning how to walk and this pair of stride ride shoes provide the support he needs. I have purchased stride right in the past and will continue to do so, I love the quality.

The soles will not stay in place. They bunch up when he puts his shoes on. The soles constantly come out when he takes his shoes off. Very annoying! He loves how they light up. And they look good.

Do not use for anything but casual wear here & there. The leather? material is very soft or thin and tears easily. This is my second time purchasing and now I'm more aware of the design issues.

While this is the second time ordering this shoe, there are some design issues that I wish Stride Rite would fix. Most Stride Rite shoes Ive ordered over the last decade are not built to withstand toddler/elementary school-aged children. The toe box never lasts. Spending $50+ on shoes (×2 for my Irish twins) can become frustrating when you have to replace them often because there are holes near the toe area. Also, this time around my children developed blisters in the area where the corners of the shoe's tongue hit the foot. I only buy them because they are one of few companies that offer XW sizes and more velcro options, since my children can't tie their shoes yet. Shoes look great in style, but as of lately the quality of Stride Rite has suffered.

Great little girls shoes. I have bought several stride rite sneakers for my daughter who has wide feet and these are the best by far. So cute and the light up bottoms add an extra little something special!

Wanted to love this. The glitter is so pretty and the pink in the perfect neutral. But it was very stiff. Heavy sneaker. Way too narrow. Gave my daughter blisters on her toes and on top of her foot on her instep.

I bought these for my 5 year old grandson for this summer. Unfortunately the left shoe rubs on three different spots around the top ankle area. The right foot felt fine. I am sad to return because they looked really comfy and they light up.
