Summer is almost here! Time for some new sandals for those kiddos’ feet. Let those little piggies out to breathe!

Where to go for shoes & sandals that are made to support your children’s feet as they run around and enjoy the summer sun? Stride Rite, of course!

Shop online at and use code SUN20 for an EXTRA 20% OFF your purchase of $50 or more, PLUS you’ll get FREE SHIPPING when you order 2 or more pairs in one purchase!

Something new to me… I always thought of Stride Rite as a store for shoes for young kids. Not true! When perusing their site just now, I found some really cute shoes for girls (and boys) up through pre-teen sizes! The Jessica Simpson Cashel sandal pictured in this post is just $22, then take an EXTRA 20% OFF (if you purchase $50 or more) that AND get your FREE SHIPPING when you order 2 or more pairs online!

Find a Stride Rite store near you.

Expires: The 20% OFF deal expires May 13, 2010, and the FREE SHIPPING deal expires May 31, 2010.

Find the nearest kid (preferably one related to you) and push down at the toe of his/her shoe with your thumb. Are those shoes too small? Time to order some new ones!

And don’t forget that kids love slippers — what a great way to let them feel like “big kids” without having to bend any rules. Slippers make a fabulous birthday gift. My child received a pair from a friend for his birthday and LOVES them!

Use code FALL20 to get 20% off your entire footwear purchase at Stride Rite (through 11/15/09). Plus, they’re offering FREE SHIPPING on orders of 2 pairs or more (through 10/31/09)!

Yikes! The start of the school year is just around the corner. Rather than dragging your kids to the store, place your order for their new footwear on

Shipping is FREE when you order 2 or more pairs on, which is perfect because, let’s face it, kids are tough on shoes! No code needed!
