Surprize By Stride Rite: Comfy & Cute Toddler Shoes

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

Looking for the ultimate in comfy & stylish toddler shoes? Check out our review of Surprize by Stride Rite! Such a great selection of perfect shoes!

Stride Rite has been a step ahead of kids since 1919.  That is a lot of mud, dirt, and falls!  Thats is why Stride Rite shoes aren’t just stylish, but they are designed to put up with whatever kids can put them through.  Stride Ride has developed a new and exclusive line of stylish and durable kids shoes: Surprize, available at Target!  They continue to guarantee comfort, fit and durability. Memory foam beds are sure to make for a comfy fit for your little ones!  I know I like them in my own shoes.  The outsoles are flexible, allowing for natural movement and growth.  To ensure durability, the rubber soles are brought up over the toe.  

My son will be walking before I know it (before I am ready!) so I wanted to check out these new shoes.  I have never been to this Target store before, I just relocated from New Hampshire to Florida.


The shoe department was easy to find. The Stride Rite Surprize shoe display was easy to spot! Big and bright blue, they had set it up at the start of the kid’s shoes section, with a handful of shoes on display in different styles and sizes.


I was looking for something simple that would go with all of my baby boy’s outfits.  I was immediately drawn to these super cute brown colored shoes they call ‘Alford’.  This being the first pair of shoes my son will be wearing (Florida is too hot even for shoes!) I had no idea what size would fit him (I bought him a size 3 in case you were curious).  Of course I brought my 6 year-old fashionista daughter along for approval, she spotted them first.


Just like you do when you are buying shoes, I put his tiny fat foot into the size 3 and his face lit up with a huge smile!  These were the ones!  Of course they have a super cute thin velcro strap, and elastic ‘laces’, because who wants to tie a toddler’s shoe?  I cannot wait to see him hobbling around in these tiny comfortable shoes.  Well, maybe I can, I am not trying to rush things, but you know what I mean.

Have you tried out these new Stride Rite Surprize shoes at Target?  If you have a child between 6 months and 4 years of age, go check them out, they are very affordable too!  If you can put the blinders on while walking the store, you might even have money left in your wallet when you  leavesurprize-by-stride-rite-comfy-stylish-toddler-shoes-target

  1. Love these shoes , so cute , great prices a well , never heard of Stride Rite , will def look into it , thanks for sharin 🙂

  2. I love Stride Rite shoes and my son has been wearing them since he was born. This is so awesome they now have a line at Target – can’t wait to get him a pair.

  3. I wish these were around when my kids were small enough to wear these. I will have to remember these when shopping for my nephew they would be adorable for him.

  4. I really had no idea that Stride Rite has been around for that long. I always remember seeing the shoes in the mall, and didn’t know that you could buy them in Target now. The infant shoes featured here are really cute.

  5. I have a serious shopping problem at Target!! Those are such cute shoes! I had no idea that the Stride Rite brand was at Target, they are great shoes for any little one starting to walk!

  6. We love stride rite because the quality is so great. I never realized that Target had stride rite shoes. I should check it out because our local stride rite store closed down about 3-4 years ago.

  7. I have noticed a real trend for babies to not be wearing shoes. Even at fancy occasions. What a shock it must be when someone pops them on for the first time at like 1 year old. I always shopped at Stride Rite when my kids were small. Worth every penny.

  8. I just grabbed a pair of these for my 4 year old and we love them! I love that I can toss them in the washer and they come out like new everytime. She loves to wear them because they are comfy!

  9. My sister-in-law always dresses her four little boys, including one 6mth old, so preppy! I usually tease her about it. But, I plan on seriously telling her about this article – I guarantee she would love these shoes!

    Those are super cute! I might just have to get a pair for my nephew, who has a birthday coming up next month.
