Stride Rite shoes are known for being comfortable, sturdy, practical and for looking great. This pair of sneakers is no exception. The two Velcro fastenings make them feel independent and the loop at the back of the shoes helps them too. The sensory response technology helps to keep them comfortable. *These sneakers are in VGUC as they have some discolouration on the outside that is cosmetic and doesn't affect the functionality of the shoe.
