Backed by more than 85 years of experience, the shoemakers at Stride Rite of Wyckoff design and assemble durable, cushy footwear specifically tailored to accommodate the constantly growing soles of babies, toddlers, and kids. They put each piece of footwear from their eponymous brand through a meticulous, three-step test, first scrutinizing fit before allowing real kids to don the shoes for 30–45 days of active play and imaginary-friend wrestling. Then they administer another 30–40 lab tests, striving to secure a snug fit with sturdy materials. To further swaddle tots’ feet in style, Stride Rite compiles a vast array of sneakers, sandals, and dress shoes from renowned brands such as Sperry, Robeez, and Keds.
