First we went to every shoe store near us that sells kids shoes. We are talking about over a dozen stores. Not one shoe passed my daughter's inspection. She is picky about style and fit. Of the ones that she liked as far as style, none passed the fit test. "They don't feel right" and "These are not comfortable." Finally someone suggested Zappos.com. We browsed online, ordered a bunch and only these shoes, Stride Rita Lesley Size 2W passed the test. We sent the rest back. Free shipping both ways was great. Thank god for Zappos and Stride Rita Lesley Size 2W.

My daughter has only been wearing these since September and they have been fraying and falling apart for at least a month along the strap. They look awful. They looked really cute when we first got them, but they just didn't last. Very disappointed.

Lovely little shoe for my 21 month old. First official real pair of dress shoes for my daughter and she absolutely loves them. Can wear them all day and not exhibit any signs that they are uncomfortable.

Cute shoes. My daughter loves them. No blisters or complaints after a full night of dancing in them right from the box.

Very cute shoe. My granddaughter loved them and they fit her perfectly. She is a size 10 with a wide foot and this shoe was great fitting on her. It's hard to get wide shoes for her in the stores, so I was so glad that zappos has so many choices to choose from for her. It is a great shoe for the money.

These shoes are fantastic. The styling is cute, they wear well for a dress shoe, and they are comfortable. My daughter wears them nearly every day for school and she is very active. They do scuff a little on the bow, but the toe box, even though it got slightly scuffed, was still black and looked nice. This is our second pair as she grew out of the first ones.

This is such a darling and cute shoe. It's perfect for church and other dressy occasions. It's also very comfortable but seems to be a bit narrow. It's a great shoe at a reasonable price.

Super cute shoe that gives my 2nd grader the feeling she is wearing bigger girl shoes like her sister, but still has a strap to hold them on. I agree, I ordered down a 1/2 size in a wider width. They fit great!

I bought these for my 3rd and 4th graders as a part of their school uniform. They both agree that there is a nice amount of "cush" in the sole. They both really like this shoe.

I bought these shoes for my granddaughter and she and her Mom love them. I started with a size 11 and went down to a size 10 W. I'd say they run longer and narrower than most. They are dressy but substantial and can be worn with a dress or sporty outfits. I just bought her a pair of Stride-Rite sneakers and they are a size 11 and fit. I love shopping Zappos for my granddaughter's shoes! It's so much easier than driving all over the Mall. Zappos staff rocks! The service is unbeatable.

This shoe is comfy and my daughter comments on how well it fits. Mary Jane style shoes are at times too tight over the toe box, although this shoe fits her well there.

This is the third time I have purchased this shoe. I have two granddaughters that love them because they are comfortable and easy to get off and on. As they grow into a larger size we will purchase another pair. The quality is excellent and I would highly recommend them to anyone if you are looking for style and comfort.

I love these shoes! Cute and sturdy. So glad I got a wide width because they fit a little narrow. The length is on point. My daughter especially likes the bow. These are great for school uniforms as well as with jeans. Love, love, love 'em!

Loved the shoe. Bought these for my 8 and 6 year old for school. They are stylish and very comfortable. They wear them with everything from dresses to jeans. So far, they are holding up very well. No scuffs, which is incredible with the way they play at recess. One down side, even though they are leather, their feet don't seem to "breathe" as easily as in Stride Rite shoes of the past. I would still buy these again, though.

My super picky daughter likes these. The one thing that works for her is that the 12W we ordered is truly wide. Many Stride Rite wides are not really that wide. (We don't find many Stride Rites she can wear.) And my daughter doesn't even have truly wide feet. She is just super sensitive and has a rather high in-step (top of foot). The strap is nice and long and closes on her high-instep without leaving half of the velcro showing. The only reason I didn't give a 5 star is because the strap and bow are man-made and sure enough my daughter scraped the bow and now has a white/gray gash on it and the strap does have fringy threads coming out of the side. I have a fray-stop from fabric store that I use but a shame I have to with a name brand shoe. These are great for one time use but probably won't hold up for a hand-me-down.

I bought these for my 20 month old baby girl. She has very small feet for her age and it's very hard to find toddler shoes with nice sturdy soles in a 4 or 4.5 infant size. I bought these in a 4.5 W. Stride Rite is always narrow, and these were no exception. I really appreciated other reviews reminding me they run long and narrow. They fit my sweet baby girl just great and she had a blast running around in her new shoes all over the house. She gets as excited about packages on the porch as I do! These are very sturdy and supportive, not too dressy, perfect for her skirts and skirt/legging outfits when I send her off to school (daycare).

Too cute! But my daughter has wider feet and sometimes can get away with regular sizes in Stride Rite, not these ones though. Way cuter than the Pampili shoe I ordered to compare.

This shoe is just as adorable in person as it is on the picture and has wonderful padding! However, it was too narrow for my daughter and created bad blisters. Consider purchasing the "wide" version if possible.

Purchased these shoes for my granddaughter. They look even cuter than the picture. I will be returning them because they run large, but I plan to exchange them for another pair 1/2 size smaller.

I have purchased many pairs of Stride Rite shoes for my kids, and usually we are happy with them. My 5 year likes these shoes, but after one week of wear the straps are already fraying, and the thread is white! They look like cheap shoes. I am disappointed and not sure I will purchase Stride Rite shoes again.

My daughter has wide feet according to our local Stride Rite store. These are still too narrow. We were disappointed and will be sending them back. They are adorable and my little girl loves them, just too tight.
