Ok ladies and gentlemen, I’ve found THE toddler shoe.  Seriously.  We’ve been test driving these suckers for the past week and I have officially awarded them the best Spring/Summer shoe for active toddlers.   

Introducing the Stride Rite Phibian.  The best all-terrain shoe for toddlers I’ve found.

I love the Stride Rite Phibian because they’re machine washable.  Which, if you have kids you know is a HUGE deal.  They’re also made out of quick-dry material so you don’t have to worry about them smelling like stinky toddler feet and mold.  We have several pairs of sneakers we’ve had to throw out for this exact reason!

The outsoles also have extra grip just like an athletic sneaker.  So they’re a great fit for all the climbing, running, skipping that kids love to do.

So imagine a water shoe, sandal, and sneaker all rolled into one.  Because of the great fit, Hudson can run and enjoy everything outside without me worrying about him falling or tripping due to slippery shoes.  And I don’t have to worry about the elements at all.  He can play in the sand, then jump into the ocean, then streak across the pavement and his little footsies are safe and protected.  Not to mention, they’re dry and ready for play the next day.  We love these Stride Rite Phibian shoes!
