Surprize by Stride Rite Review

I’d like to start this post off by letting you know I was not paid, sponsored, otherwise compensated or even contacted by Stride Rite about this review. However, this post (like many others on my blog) may contain affiliate links. I found Surprize by Stride Rite as a happy accident during my latest trip to Target, and when I looked online for reviews and more info, I didn’t find much so I decided to share my experience with you! 

My daughter recently turned 1 and started walking. I realized I hadn’t purchased a pair of sneakers/outdoor shoes for her when we got to the park and I couldn’t let her run through the grass. So, naturally, I hit up the (outlet) mall in search of a great deal on baby’s first kicks.

I tried the Nike outlet and Stride Rite’s store before working my way to Target. Initially, Target had been my last choice for sneakers because they’re usually character-centric and not necessarily the best quality for a first sneaker. Nike and Stride Rite’s selection had baby sneakers starting at $30 but averaging $50.

I’m not a cheap person. In fact, most people would say I have pretty expensive taste. But when it comes to children’s clothing and shoes, I like to get high quality at a reasonable price. Kids grow so fast that $50 on a pair of shoes they might wear for 3-4 weeks is a little outrageous.

Target is currently having a sale buy one get one 50% off children’s shoes. So, I was able to snag 2 pairs of shoes for $40, which is about the retail price for the average Stride Rite sneakers.

The Surprize by Stride Rite line is amazing quality. The shoes are durable and comfortable for baby’s first steps.

Have an amazing toddler shoe bargain to share? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for reading. 🙂
