|We received gift bags and a Free Shoe Voucher for attending. However, all opinions and excitement are our own.|
When it comes to fashion, my daughter seems to be a pro. She knows what she likes and how to style her wardrobe. However, she’s still 4 so it’s no surprise that the first pair of shoes she geared towards were the Emoji Phibians!
The Phibians are the PERFECT shoes for water play in the summer. Gabriella wore her Phibians to every single day of summer day camp last year. They were perfect for running through the sprinklers without needing an extra pair to change into afterwards. Now, Stride Rite has re-invented the phibians and created a cool Mid rise version that is more versatile for wear throughout the year, while still having the EVA upper material, Quick Dry, secure closure and all else you find in the regular Phibians.
Another fun revamp of a previous style was the Snoot 2.0! If you say our last posts on the Snoot, then you know we are super fans of the compactable, 200 gram insulated, washable, winter boot. The New Super Snoot. Built with a better Robust shell for more active play, as well as the BEST FEATURE EVER…. 100% Waterproof! Yup. W-A-T-E-R-P-R-O-O-F! I can’t wait to get these for my little active girl. Her feet will stay nice, warm, and completely dry when sledding down the snowy “mountains”.
The true reason for this event was to give us a preview of the reimagined Baby Bootie that our parents and grandparents would buy for our precious little feet when we were learning to walk. If you didn’t know, Stride Rite introduced its first children’s shoe in 1919. However, it wasn’t until 1931 that the first baby bootie on record (Babies’ Flexibles) debuted. Fast forward to 2017 where Stride Rite reinvented the Baby Bootie with hook & loop straps and sensory soles to bring us the ultra comfy and super cute SRtech™ “Bailey”!
Lastly in the Sole Suite, we got to see the rest of the new styles and designs from the 5 other brands within the world of Stride Rite such as Keds, Hush Puppies, Merrell, Saucony, and Sperry. Check them out…
