Finding shoes that will last the Summer is no simple task. My kids are hard on their shoes. From mud puddles to sand pits to sprinting around the playground – they need shoes that will last through some hefty wear and tear as well as the dirtiest of days.
I was pretty excited that Stride Rite has created the Made 2 Play Collection, just for rambunctious kiddos like mine! I wore Stride Rite as a kid because I have very narrow feet and they were one of the only places we could find that had cute styles for kids in narrow/wide options as well as standard.
I took my little girl to Stride Rite in the mall on a little mommy-daughter shopping trip. This was her first time getting her feet measured and having an attendant help fit her. She did so well and felt like such a big girl looking at all the options in the Stride Rite Made 2 Play for girls section.
We settled on a pair that had velcro and was really easy for her to get on and off herself. Doing things on her own is a big deal right now so that was a must.
What is really thrilling me is that everything in this collection is machine washable. So when we’re out playing in the mud, I don’t have to worry what it’s doing to her shoes and her outfit. I just throw it all in the wash together and she’ll be good to go!
The Stride Rite Made 2 Play for boys section had some really cute options too! If we do a mama & Son shoe shopping day next, I know where I’ll be heading.
So thankful for shoes that will last her the Summer and can even be handed down to a friend or cousin when we’re done because I’m actually able to clean them well!
