Shoes That are Made 2 Play from Stride Rite

When Sophia was small and just beginning to learn to walk, I knew I needed to purchase her shoes that would help support her little feet and aid in the milestone of taking her first steps and beyond.

My Mom suggested Stride Rite to me because that’s the shoes that she always put on me, including my first pair of shoes that I walked in over 30 years ago!

From her first steps on, Sophia has been sporting Stride Rite shoes over the past 5 years. There’s a few reasons that I always choose to purchase from Stride Rite – whether it’s dress shoes or tennis shoes.

The main reason is I love that when I go into a store, the employees are so helpful and always measure the girls’ feet. I always think I know what size we need, but it’s nice to know exactly, with no fuss or guessing.

I also learned, from these measuring stations, that Sophia has always needed a Wide width shoe, which aren’t the easiest to find in toddler shoes, except at Stride Rite!

Since it’s already a favorite brand of ours, I was very excited to have the chance to try the Made 2 Play line for Sophia this Summer. I hopped right on Stride Rite, ready to use my exclusive Stride Rite coupon code, and let her pick out her favorite color and style, which I was super excited that she chose the Coral Pink color because it’s a current favorite of mine too!

We received our package in just a few short days and I had a little girl that was ecstatic – Sophia definitely loves shoes and I definitely love these shoes. Although Sophia’s definitely a girly girl, she still manages to get her shoes quite dirty – from playing in flower beds right after playing in her water table.

But with these shoes, I don’t have to worry a bit. The Stride Rite Made 2 Play line is made for kids just like my girls, with parents in mind. Not only are these shoes made with memory foam insole for increased comfort, reinforced toes for durability, anti-stink lining to keep the shoes odor-free, and dirt-shedding soles… they are machine washable!

They are actually made to go straight from play to the washing machine. I know, I know – I wash some of my girls shoes too, because let’s face it, they get dirty, but these shoes are made to throw straight into the washing machine so there’s no worry that washing will harm the shoes at all!

The Made 2 Play Collection is also perfect for little fingers and toes – featuring the Grip & Go strip that makes it easy for your child to put on and take off their own shoes for quick, on-the-go Summer play!

Whether you’re shopping for Stride Rite Made 2 Play for girls or Stride Rite Made 2 Play for boys, you’ll find a variety of styles and colors both in Stride Rite stores AND online. I promised an exclusive Stride Rite coupon code, are you ready?!
