I can’t say that I remember exactly the first time any of my children took their first steps. But if I check old calendars, I’m sure it’s there, probably with huge circles around the date and smiley faces or stars in the square.
I know that Maddy was around 11 months old, Owen closer to 10, and Cora, well, I know she was walking around at her first birthday party. My kiddos were early movers and shakers–running, riding, scooting, bouncing, swimming, jumping, and cartwheeling well before they were supposed to. I’m not bragging and certainly cannot take credit for their athletic prowess; I’m sure they get it from my husband, and I’m thankful.
But what I do know for sure is that whenever they were close to being ready to walk, I wanted their little feet to be equipped with the right shoes. So we would load our little family into the car and head for Stride Rite so our baby’s tiny feet could get measured and fitted, and then he or she would (try to) walk out of the store with the best shoes on the market.
Today, I’m super excited to share that teachmama readers have the opportunity to win a pair of Stride Rite’s latest and greatest shoe innovations.
Here’s your chance to get your little one started walking on the right foot. . .
- Stride Rite Giveaway: Stride Rite is launching a new “Sensory Response Technology” for its new line of baby shoes. This SRT line of shoes actually improves the way a child learns to walk via a sensory feedback system, an ultra-flexible design that allows for more freedom of movement, and a unique construction that reduces the number of stumbles and falls. I’d say that’s giving a little one the right start, wouldn’t you?
- a greater feel of the terrain;
- more natural support;
- freedom of movement;
- more overall comfort;
- a removable insole that helps Mom and Dad stay on top of proper sizing (I wish every child’s shoe had this!).
Available in toddler sizes 3 through 8 (including wide and medium), the SRT’s are available in four boys’ styles and seven girls’ styles, all of which are totally cute.
So how will this giveaway work? 5 winners will be chosen to receive one pair of SRT shoes, available in sizes 3 to 8 infant/ toddler (including medium and wide). Each pair is a retail value of $50.
In order to enter, readers must drop me a quick comment to let me know who in your life needs to try these new Stride Rite SRT’s AND fill out the following form: http://bit.ly/zb2Qb
