Stride Rite wants per-walker footwear innovations for babies

lisas's Avatar

My daughter Olivia just started walking a few short months ago. Watching her learn to crawl and finally take her first steps was so exciting! I’m hoping to build on that excitement with a couple of ideas for this LPS. Anyone else?

Lisa my son, Anthony, is now 10 months and am also experiencing his first steps. He inspired my entries in the Brica search. I will be on this one. However, it seem so limited. Only so much you can do with foot ware. I will take my time coming up with something for this one. Best of luck Lisa.

Happy belated birthday to your little guy Greg!

I was looking at their selection Andrea. So cute.

Best of luck to you too Silvia!

Hmmm…the post title should say “pre-walker” not per-walker. No way to edit though, or am I missing it?

Thanks y’all, just showed my son and he was happy.

I’ve been thinking a bit about this LPS, because all the different ways babies crawl. I don’t think the market has taken into account the different crawling styles kids have. I could see a whole market devoted to “crawl consultants” helping people choose the right shoes.

I barely remember those first steps of mine. You guys are all so young. I’ve got a 12 and a 16 year old and I’m trying to get them to slow down. We popped one in here though, just because we’ve become addicted to seeing the dashboard move and this was a fun one to think about. Good Luck everyone.

Not all that young, here’s a riddle: I was the same age when my wife and I had our son (my only kid) as my mom was when she first became a grandma.

Greg, I hope you’re onto something with your approach to different crawling styles. Good luck with your submission(s)!

Stephanie, I have a 19 year old and a 1 year old and four others in the middle. I still think I’m “young” though! Someone asked me how old I was yesterday, and I had to do the math. I stopped counting quite a few years ago. It’s just a number right? Good luck to you too!

Greg my mom was the same age as me now when she became a grandma too! We are older parents but they keep you young! Lisa’s my husband and I could technically have 25 year olds! Yikes!

Love them grandchildren!! Like I heard someone say; had I known they were this much fun, I would have had them FIRST! lol

I only have a black lab, and I sure don’t remember my own first steps, so my experience was kinda limited on this one. Gotta pick your battles… Good luck to everybody in this one!
