Kids Are Made 2 Play + 20% Off Stride Rite Made 2 Play Summer Shoes

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Stride Rite. All opinions are 100% mine.

For the last five years, we’ve been fans of Stride Rite shoes, because they are comfy and stylish and outlast my sons’ growing feet. Stride Rite shoes are worn here all year round, from leather loafers for school, to athletic sneakers for sports, or durable and fun styles for play. It’s no surprise that mom consistently rate Stride Rite shoes 4.5-5 stars.

Now that summer is coming, my sons will be spending many hours every single day playing…it’s going to be a seriously fun summer. Stride Rite’s Made 2 Play Collection is just right for kids who want to have fun, because they are washable, durable (with a reinforced toe), have memory foam for additional comfort, and are easy for kids to get on and off by themselves.

I saw the Stride Rite Made 2 Play® Soni Sandal in Navy online, and knew I had to buy them for my son…they are so colorful and sporty. I ordered them on Stride Rite’s website, and they arrived within a few days, ready for him to run and play. He loved them on sight, he immediately started wearing them inside the house and wouldn’t take them off, and I love them too. They are more of a royal blue than navy, very flexible, breathable, and comfortable for him.

The Made 2 Play® Soni Sandal has velcro grip & go straps that make it really easy for my son to pull his new shoes on and off by himself. The sandals are reinforced all over (particularly the toe) and stitched well with yellow thread against the black and blue canvas. Even the insoles are pretty cool (put the shoes together and you can see a monster). The soles are rubber with good tread, for active boys who run and break, and are even dirt-shedding to prevent those annoying dirt pockets that are tracked into the house.

There is even an anti-stink (yes, that’s the scientific name) lining to keep shoes odor free. I know my son will jump in puddles and any water he finds with these, and even if he doesn’t, he’ll be running around without sock, so…yeah, that lining will come in handy. Hey, I’m raising boys.
