Rated 4 out of 5Â by Maxx2k Love this shoe but...
My son really liked this shoe but the strap wore out quickly by the D ring and broke just after a month of use. The store agreed to exchange without any issue but I think the material used is just not strong enough. The rest of the shoe is great and I have never had an issue with Stride Rite shoes.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Practical Lily Great shoe but extra wide is not extra wide
I bought 2 of the Made2Play sneakers for my son who has a wide foot, well the other one was a wide and is wider than this sneaker thats labeled extra wide. My son also has a high instep so, the only way the shoe felt slightly comfortable to my son was completely unstrapped. Great looking shoe, better looking than the other one but he needs comfort first, these sneakers are for all day at school and he is 5, not yet into fashion, lol.

Â by Mom of wide footed child Toe blew out!
Bought my son a pair of shoes for school in August, they fell apart so Stride Rite traded them for this pair of shoes. They held up great until a week ago when my son came home from school with his toes sticking out of his shoe. Both shoes started to tear on each side of the suede piece in front within a couple weeks. This tear allowed the left shoe to tear all the way through.
As for the rest of the shoe I am happy with the durability. Boys will be boys and if a shoe can hold up to him then purchasing this model should make for a happy customer.

This is my son's 3rd pair of Griffins. They are super comfy and stylish and incredibly durable!

Rated 1 out of 5Â by MAMom Shoe fell apart after 8 weeks!
This shoe is poorly designed in that the D-ring for the velcro strap is held on with a suede strip backed by a thin nylon ribbon. These wore through and ripped after only 8 weeks of use! Stride Rite replaced them (but we had to wait for the mail and RMA process, rather than get a store credit and immediate replacement).
Otherwise, this shoe is great, easy to put on, and we LOVE the grab tab behind the Achilles tendon -- much easier to put on than the Broncos (our replacement shoe). Just don't put suede in a spot with a lot of strain on it (duh).

Our son foot is very high on the top and we have a hard time finding him shoes. This one has been a pleasant surprise. I will continue to buy this shoe. I hope that Stride right make the same shoe with different colors.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Jules My nephew loves the shoes, wears them every day and matches
his new orange coat. He has a wide foot and relies on Stride Rite
for the perfect fit.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Coursonzoo Too soon to tell if they will hold up
I got these shoes because my son is seriously hard on his shoes, especially the toe. He wore them twice and the bungee cord came off of one shoe. I wanted to do an exchange only to find out that Stride Rite wouldn't send me a new pair of shoes until the defective ones were received by them. Well, what is my son to do without any sneakers (we don't have tons of shoes just laying around)? I ended up relacing the bungee and super gluing it back into the little loop where the ends meet. It seems to be holding up, but I think it is too early to tell if these shoes are as rugged as they are claimed to be. The shoes may be okay, but the exchange process leaves a lot to be desired.
