Let me share a little about these adorable sneakers! I love being able to recommend shoes that work because shoes are an investment and especially when you have little ones, you want them to last. Your little ones are here, there and everywhere and you need to make sure they have something on their feet that is keeping up with them too! I love how Stride Rite truly thinks of a kid and knows how they need to be and how they need to have shoes that work for them. Thank goodness they have such amazing people working for them because I’ve ALWAYS been thrilled with my Stride Rite purchases!

The Made2Play® Phibian is changing the way families do warm weather. In this versatile sneaker-sandal, toddlers and kids go effortlessly from sand to sea, lawn to lake, sidewalk to sprinkler, and everywhere in between, all in the same pair of shoes. With flexible, lightweight outsoles that grip like a sneaker and breathable, quick-dry, machine washable uppers like a sandal, days are filled with more fun and less hassle.
