Good support and nice fit for my son's large feet. The Velcro is great for him to put them on himself, even though he is 6, he is still working on tying shoes.

I bought these shoes after in 11.5 after my son grew out of the same pair in 10.5. He loves these shoes for the wet, muddy weather we have most of the year. The elastic strap sometimes causes him frustration, but this is a kid who throws things on himself as be runs outside. Very sturdy, good construction, not too stiff. Taller sole takes a day to adjust to after a flat shoe, like his soccer-style Adidas he wore in the early fall.

They fit my child well and have stood up to rough and tumble indoor and outdoor play. Would buy this brand again.

I love these shoes, as does my little guy! I do, however, have to agree with the other users who say this shoe fits about a half size smaller. I normally get his shoes a whole size bigger so he has room to grow and they fit more like a 10 1/2 than an 11.

Love the shoes, but I agree with previous reviewers. They run 1/2 size small. Will have to go up 1/2 a size

Fantastic sneaker! I love these on my 5 year old. They are really cool looking and very sturdy. The colors are such a nice change from the usual boys shoe and they fit great with nice support. These are a great buy!

This is a great shoe. It holds up well to being worn every day and takes playground abuse well. It is easy for my son to put on and take off, and the toe and heel reinforcements are a nice feature. If it gets too dirty, I just wipe them with a damp cloth. We have bought this shoe three times, as my son's foot grows, he loves them!

These are the fourth pair of these shoes that we've owned for our rough and tumble 2- and 4-year old boys. They are very supportive shoes and great for all the running and jumping and climbing they do. Previously they had the brown ones; for spring, we went with the tan/orange ones. Guaranteed, though, they run about a 1/2 size small (e.g., my 4y old wears an 11 and the 11.5 fit him better). Buy these today!

These are the second pair of this style I have ordered (one for my 2 year old and one for my 4 year old). We love these shoes. My boys want to wear these every day (they have other shoes to pick from). They are easy to get on and off. The velcro stays put. I would buy these again and again.

A great cross trainer / shoe design for the wider foot. My son has a wide foot and the W fitting is a true wide unlike some Stride Rite trainer shoes. This will be his second pair in this design, we had the plain brown ones prior to these. He tells me they are comfortable & springy. He wears these most days for school changing into a Stride Rite trainer at home in the afternoon if he plays outdoors. The uppers held up well and but the soles have worn away considerably more than with any other Stride Rite shoe we have had. Could be he's worn these for a tad longer than others before outgrowing them? Really happy with this newer lighter color for spring summer. I always spray these material shoes with a water proof camping spray prior to wear and it doesn't damage them in any way.

I bought these shoes before (in a smaller size). These shoes are great. Easy to get on/off. Easy to velcro. They seem comfortable. My 3.5 year old would tell me if they weren't!

These are excellent quality and run true to size. They are much easier for a four year old to loosen properly than the two strap shoes and just as secure. The step Velcro's to the tongue to inure that the shoes go on properly.

I bought this shoe for my two year old and he seems to walk comfortably in them. The sole is somewhat thicker (yet soft) which is helpful during the colder/wetter season. I can recommend this product.

Awesome. Fit great and tend to fit longer. My son loves Keens too, but they seem to only last about three months before he out grows them. The SRs usually get at least five or six months.

We bought these in a 9W. They were perfect for his wide feet. Love these shoes! They look great with dress pants, jeans, or shorts. They are also very slip resistant, and came in handy on our hiking trip. Only problem we encountered was that he normally wears a 8 in other brands. We first purchased the 8 1/2W. They were too small and had to be exchanged for a bigger size. Overall great shoe!

I felt compelled to write a new review as a follow-up to my 12/4/12 review where I indicated we'd struck out for a second time with this shoe. Basically I was wondering if maybe my son was rejecting the new, bigger size because he was stuck on the fact that they didn't fit the first time (you know how stubborn toddlers can be!). So, I told him I now had a new pair that would fit better. What do you know - he likes them! They are definitely a stiffer fit than sneakers (he usually wears Saucony) but are attractive and seem to have good arch support. The hook & loop feature does sometimes get stuck on the velcro before it's all the way pulled over. This frustrates my son a bit because he has a hard time loosening it once stuck and has to ask for help, but I bet this issue will go away once the shoes have more wear and the velcro isn't quite as sticky anymore. I still really like the look of the shoe and the way it can easily be used for a dressier or casual look.

Great shoe for my little guy. All four of my kiddos wear a wide, and Stride Rite is my go-to brand for all of them. This shoe seems to be wearing well, and I liked that it had one simple Velcro closure -- I figured that would make changing in and out of boots at preschool this winter easier. He actually struggles a bit with it, though, because the tongue doesn't stay inside when the strap is opened; there is Velcro on the tongue as well, and so it is lifted out when the strap is pulled open. That's the only negative I see at this point.

I have ordered Stride Rite shoes in the past with no problems - they typically run larger in size. These shoes were ordered twice and I had to return them both times. The size was very small.
