Stride Rite SRT Review/Giveaway

I recently received a wonderful pair of Stride Rite SRT (Sensory Response Technology) Shoes for my little daughter and I was extremely impressed. Not only were
they cute, but the quality of the shoe itself was amazing. Here are the ones I received:

My daughter who is almost 1 is just starting to stand on her own and walk, everyday a few more steps and these shoes will definitely help her do just that. I feel confident that she has a great shoe to support her and one that is comfortable as well.

SRT is something new that Stride Rite is introducing and here are some of the benefits:

SRT's features promote a healthy lifelong walking pattern and improve baby's ability to respond to their environment. Highlights include:

* Greater feel of terrain: Sensory pods in the forefoot of the outsole move independently of each other offering multiple reaction points, increasing a baby's feel of the ground beneath them. This allows a baby to stabilize their gait and better respond to their environment.
* More natural support: Unique "hourglass" construction in the midfoot mirrors a baby's foot structure to help supporting bones and muscles that are not yet fully developed. A smooth, rounded transition from outsole to upper prevents catching an edge, reducing the number of stumbles and falls.
* Freedom of movement: Ultra-flexible design allows the foot to move in many directions to help baby learn how to adapt to uneven surfaces.

"Many people do not realize how important it is for a baby to wear proper shoes while learning to walk," said Dr. Tanya Altmann, a pediatrician and best-selling author of Mommy Calls: Dr. Tanya Answers Parents' Top 101 Questions About Babies and Toddlers. "A baby's foot can provide a rich array of sensory information from which a reliable walking program may be developed if their shoes are flexible enough to permit such feedback."

Shoes in the SRT collection are also designed to make baby comfortable. They feature moisture-wicking linings, which help keep baby's feet drier longer, and eco-friendly materials such as a recycled EVA heel cup and a partially recycled outsole to protect baby and baby's future environment. A great feature for mom and dad is a removable insole containing a Fit Check™ system that easily lets them know when it is time to see a fit specialist. Mom or dad just removes the insole and places baby's foot on it. If baby's toes pass the Fit Check™ line, then it's time to visit Stride Rite and see a fit specialist.

The fall SRT collection is comprised of four boys' styles and seven girls' styles in baby sizes 3 to 8 in various widths, and features fun fashion touches such as suede fringe, metallic leathers and bright hits of color. Additional styles will be released in spring 2010. The collection is available at Stride Rite stores,, better department stores and independent retailers. Visit to find a local retailer.
