Lots of exciting things happening! Not only are we preparing for our move down to Florida and about to celebrate Harley’s first Birthday [can you believe it?!!], BUT a little Miss Someone is about to start walking [or running rather] any second now! She has spent the last two weeks trying to keep up with my very active nephew, Jaxon and also played for a couple of days in the Day Care that she’ll be starting full time this October. As soon as she began testing her balance and trying to step forward on her own, I immediately wanted her in a durable shoe that offers the most support and comfort.
When asking my fellow Momma friends what they recommend, almost everyone responded, “Stride Rite,” a company that’s been making children’s shoes for practically a century. Target offers an exclusive line of cute and comfy shoes by Stride Rite, called Surprize, so Harley and I went over to check it out since I could always use a good excuse to make a Target run.
Within 5 seconds of perusing the selection of Surprize for girls, Harley immediately picked out a grey, purple, and pink pair called ‘Aida.’ Putting shoes on her chubby, thick feet is not always an easy task, but because of the flexible outsoles and generous fit, they went on easily, allowing for an agile, natural step and growth. Another great thing about these shoes is the memory foam footbeds and rubber toes that ensure comfort and durability. She didn’t want me to take them off of her [so I didn’t]!
Shopping with Harley is always entertaining. Being pushed in the shopping cart has become one of her favorite activities and she absolutely loves the attention she gets from strangers so I am in big trouble!! Once she starts walking for real, I have a feeling I’m going to be chasing her up and down every aisle, haha!
Shop Surprize by Stride Rite at any Target store located in the US or online at Target.com, and of course it’s not just for girls as they have a nice selection of Surprize for boys too! Feel free to visit Stride Rite’s Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook accounts for more information.
Are any of you already familiar with Surprize or Stride Rite’s shoes? If so, which style is your favorite?
