I was given a free pair of Stride Rite shoes by BzzAgent for an honest review. I got a pair of the Constance boot in taupe shimmer. They are so cute and warm for my little one (14 months). I love that the rubber sole goes all of the way around the shoe and then up a bit on the toe. It doesnt take away from the style but it really helps to keep the shoe looking nice and make it so that my little one can walk more easily. She is just learning to walkrun and so she falls down A LOT. I try not to put her in any shoes that add to that instability and I have not gotten that feeling from these shoes at all. I also like that the Velcro strap makes it easy to get them on her feet. I think these will become a staple for us this winter. There seems to be a huge selection of styles and I love that the sizes even come in half sizes. I like styles that go with a lot of different outfits meaning not so bright so some of them dont really appeal to me but there are still plenty of options. I would definitely look to them in the future.
