Scary and Safe: Hitting the Streets on Halloween with Help from Stride Rite

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Stride Rite. I received products to facilitate my review and thank me for my participation.

Stride RiteThis year, trick-or-treating in our neighborhood will take place on October 31. Remember when trick-or-treating took place on Halloween every year? I’m not really sure when or why the powers-that-be decided to shift the door-to-door celebration to October 29 or October 30 in some years, but it’s nice that it actually falls on the actual holiday for a change.

Safety is one of my biggest concerns when we’re walking around the neighborhood after dark. Zig-zagging across the street, cars coming and going. It’s especially tricky this year because our little one will be dressed all in black as an adorably spooky witch. Of course, every little witch needs a ummm “scary” kitty.


Thankfully, the folks at Stride Rite have been nice enough to send me a pair of sparkly light-up shoes that will make our stroll through the neighborhood a lot safer. They’re not exactly “witch like,” but they’ll make our little witch a lot easier to see, and that’s all that counts. They’re actually a lot brighter than you can see in the picture below, but it was hard to capture the lights on the shoes of a  jumping toddler! shoesIn addition to visual safety, we’ll also be taking the other usual Halloween safety precautions – inspecting candy, wearing glow sticks, and steering clear of the creepy house at the end of the block.

Stride Rite specializes in kids’ shoes, with a wide selection of boys and girls options for babies, toddlers and kids. The light-up options alone – for boys and girls – are worth a look, for Halloween use or otherwise. Our daughter loves the shoes because they light up (of course!), but I like them because they’re durable and they look very comfortable.

If you’re looking for some Halloween options, Stride Rite has plenty of them. They’ve got shoes themed around some of the season’s hottest costumes like Spider-Man, Captain America, Star Wars, Disney Princess and Minnie Mouse, and with a breadth of brands including Stride Rite, Sperry Top-Sider, Keds, Saucony and Jessica Simpson.

Stride Rite has been selling shoes since 1919, which means they know a thing or two about footwear. And one of the best parts about shopping online at Stride Rite: Free shipping on all orders over $75 (Rewards Members get free shipping on orders over $35). In other words, I’ll be buying a lot more shoes from them in the very near future!

  29. Your little witch is beautiful! I agree with you safety is a huge concern. Kids are so excited about the candy and planning the next house that they never watch where they are going. I try to avoid driving on Halloween as a general rule of thumb. Those shoes are perfect!

  30. Helene Cohen Bludman says:

    Sparkly light up shoes are the perfect solution for a dark Halloween (or any other) night. So cute, too!

  31. What adorable shoes to go with your precious little girl! I love light up shoes, especially since I have three boys and when my older two were younger it was easier to spot them, HA!

  32. Those are clearly the cutest little sneakers ever! Also, I don’t have children so I never understood why Trick Or Treating sometimes takes place on different days every year. A few nights ago I was at the Farmer’s Market at my neighborhood and there were a ton of trick or treaters – turns out the community organized the event. I was so confused lol!

  37. We are huge fans of Stride Rite. Their shoes are just such a high quality item that we feel they are worth every penny for our kids as they grow.

  38. I still have my oldest son’s first pair of shoes which of course were Stride Rite, he is 16. My 4 year old also started off in and still wears Stride Rite. My oldest son’s doctor recommended them as the best and he was right.

  39. We love Stride Rite, I am a huge believer in the importance of buying quality shoes for my kids. Those princess themed shoes are adorable and your little witch looks so cute in them.

    Your daughter looks adorable dressed up as a witch! Too bad they didn’t have black Stride Rite’s in black. Love that they light up! My niece would be thrilled (and she’s dressing as a princess this year). Happy Halloween!

  46. My children all love their light up shoes. The lights make it easy to see your children and have them seen when out at night. I have liked it a lot when coming home from school events in the evening.

  47. My boys had light up shoes when they were toddlers. They did not only light up and blink with every little step, they also gave out a squeaky sound so I am alerted when the sound is far from my range of hearing. I am happy that Stride Rite has come up with “themed” designs. I am pretty sure all the little ones would love it!

  48. She looks cute in her Halloween costume. My four year old niece is wearing similar to hers.

  49. stride ride is a good footwear. You have adorable model in there. My daughter would like this pair of shoes. great review

  53. I have been looking for light up shoes for my girls but no store seems to sell them any more so I guess my next step is online shopping I will try Stride Rite Site and see if I can get a good deal thanks..

  54. I love Stride Rite! They definitely have the best shoes for kids.

  55. My daughter rocks silver Stride Rite shoes too:)
