There’s no doubt women (or men for that matter – I live with a sneaker head) can have a special bond with their shoes. I know I have a few pairs (okay maybe more than a few) that I just could never live without. Whether our personal preference is comfort or style, some shoes just hold a special place in our hearts.
Not only that, but think about the shoes you put on this morning. What do they say about you? Are you wearing a comfortable pair of sneakers that have good traction? I might guess you’re athletic, are going for a run, or simply just want to be comfortable. Are you wearing a high pair of sexy pumps? I might guess you’ve got a really hot date or are headed to have lunch with the girls or a girls’ night out. You get my point, right?
Our shoes say so much about us personally and even give others an indication of what type of mood we’re in. On any given day you can find me wearing a pair of sandals or flats. I’m usually in full on mom mode with the messy bun, leggings and kids in tow. I need something simple, quick and easy, and that’s what sandals and flats are to me. But get me on a day where I’m going to take on the world and you’ll find me wearing some of my hottest pumps or wedges. And watch out because here I come and nothing is going to bring me down!
I like to think the same goes for my kids. My daughter has recently started learning to walk and just like the rest of the family (mom, dad and brother included), she loves getting new shoes. She sees that little shoe box and knows exactly what’s in store. She’s a true shoe lover in the making.
Her newest addition is a pair of Stride Rite Kellen Soft Motion shoes. What exactly do THESE shoes say about her? Everything you’d expect of a toddler who’s learning to walk. She’s ready to get up and go, but needs gentle comfort because it’s all so new to her.
Soft Motion Features:
- Rounded soles for improved balance.
- Flexibility for natural movement.
- Oversized openings for easy on/off.
- Memory foam interior footbeds for comfort.
- Secure closures to keep shoes on.
The new Stride Rite Soft Motion shoes have quickly become my daughter’s favorite pair. Once she took them out of the box, being the little independent kid she is, tried to put them on herself and she hasn’t wanted to take them off. Every time I tried to take them off she’d grab my hand and put the strap back down. She’s making time to explore the world of walking, with or without mom.
As a parent, my favorite thing about Stride Rite Soft Motion shoes is that they are soft and flexible, but still durable enough to protect my daughter’s little feet. Not to mention, they are THE easiest shoes to put on. I remember having such a tough time trying to get shoes on my son’s feet when he was smaller, simply because of how they’re made, but Stride Rite Soft Motion shoes, or at least the Kellen style, slide right on with no fuss.
