For high quality and sturdiness relative to the price, Stride Rite is a good option for boys’ shoes. Features such as hook-and-loop straps and wide openings make it easy for little ones to put their own shoes on and take them off again, building confidence and motor skills at the same time. Some styles are more formal than others, so keep that in mind when choosing the right shoe. Stride Rite styles range from casual to athletic to dressy, and have a range of both summer and winter options. Stride Rite shoes typically range in price from about $25-$50 for most styles.
