Springtime has arrived & we couldn’t be happier! Our winter coats & boots are packed away and it’s time to break out the spring jackets & shoes. There’s something to be said about running through the green grass again…
We have spent the past week just soaking up the sunshine and exploring the outdoors as much as we can. This includes playing baseball in the backyard, swinging on our swingset, and riding bikes every afternoon. We just can’t get enough of this beautiful spring weather!
While the kids are busy outside playing, I have been inside purging the closets & preparing for another season of clothes and shoes. I have packed away the winter clothes that will fit next year, gave away the clothes that are ready to be passed on, and made a list of what items we need to complete our wardrobe for the spring season. One item that is a must-have for springtime are some new shoes.
On my list for the spring season, I try to make sure each of my children have the following types of shoes: sandals, sneakers, “dressier” shoes, & whatever shoes that are needed for sports. One of my favorite places to shop for all of my kids is Stride Rite. Stride Rite has a huge inventory of shoes for children of all ages & there is really something for everyone. Not only do they feature their own Stride Rite brand, but Stride Rite carries other brands as well including: Sperry, Saucony, Keds, Merrell, & more. Their shoes have great prices and quality for all the children in my family.
One of the things that I love about Stride Rite is that there is a helpful sizing guide provided on their website. Each season, I check the size of my children’s feet before shopping for shoes. With four kids at home, it’s not always easy to get to the shoe store, but I found the Stride Rite downloadable size guide super helpful to figure out which size my kids’ foot will fit in this springtime.
We are sharing some of our favorite fashionable finds for springtime from Stride Rite. Abby is wearing the Natalie sandal that resemble the classic jelly sandal that I wore growing up. Not only are they her favorite color pink, but they are super easy to put on and get out the door! Alex is wearing the metallic purple Zuly sandal while Maggie is wearing the Natalie sandal as well.
Miles is wearing the super soft and flexible Danny sneaker, which is part of the Stride Rite Soft Motion line. This line of shoes is geared towards little feet that are learning to walk and exploring new things as a toddler. The Soft Motion shoes from Stride Rite are created to support growing feet.
For a little more springtime inspiration, I’m sharing a fun Spring Bucket List for families. This list is full of activities to keep your kids outdoors and having fun this spring!
