Our son is very active. He can destroy a pair of discount store shoes
in less than a month. I'm thrilled with Stride Rites because they are the toughest shoes
I've found anywhere. His last pair of SRs survived nearly a year - a year that would have cost me at least double the price in discount store shoes
. SRs are worth every penny I spend on them. They are supportive, sturdy, comfortable and stylish. They perform like athletic shoes
without looking like athletic shoes
. Cleaned up a bit, they pair as well with khakis as they do with jeans and cargo pants. Our son loves having shoes
as tough as he is, and I love not having to buy him a new pair every 4 weeks. Zappos' excellent service, fast shipping and generous return policy is the proverbial icing on this mom's shoecake. Thanks, Zappos!
