Oddly to some, Halloween is one of my favorite holidays. I love seeing children all dressed up and excited, as they head out with their candy sack to show off their look and enjoy some treats. As fun as Halloween can be there is also a large safety aspect to the day that can be easily overlooked; with days getting shorter and nights longer, it’s inevitable that most children will be walking the streets in the dark. For me this is an even bigger issue because our town has no street lights on residential roads. When I say our roads are pitch black, I’m not exaggerating even a little. And as much as I’d like to think motorist will be extra cautious, at least for this one particular night, it only takes one mistake by a driver or child.
This year Stride Rite has come up with themed shoes inspired by the season’s most popular characters, making a great match for a variety of costumes. I simply adored the themed fun of these shoes. But what made these shoes a must-have for us, was the light-up technology available on most styles.
The Stride Rite for Disney Wish Lights: Belle Mary Jane style shoes, are equipped with wish lights that don’t just sparkle and flash when your child takes a step, but the truly light the way. I was amazed at the power behind these shoes – they’re bright! And as an added bonus, unlike bulky boots or uncomfortable shoes that often accompany a costume. Disney Wish Lights have a mesh lining, keeping my daughters feet cool and comfortable for our long troop around the neighborhood.
Originally my daughter was set on being a zombie cheerleader, which quickly changed into wanting to be Belle. Well after 2 costume returns (totally serious) this year she has finally settled on a Monster High character.
Her shoes make a cute addition to her costume, helping to make her visible at night and providing feet cooling for the muggy fall nights here in S. Florida. I've been trying to save these shoes until Halloween, but my little princess can't resist the sparkle and shine of these Disney Princess shoes. She could and would wear them all day, every day!
If these shoes aren't right for your child, no problem. Stride Rite has tons of cute styles and designs from the perfect Disney Princess match, to Star Wars, Marvel and even Sesame Street Designs. All these and more are available in your favorite brands including: Stride Rite, Sperry Top-Sider, Keds, Saucony and Jessica Simpson.
Since the birth of my first child I've been a fan of Stride Rite. They were one of the only places I could get the right width for my oldest sons, then, chunky little feet. Check out Stride Rite for all the latest fall styles for Halloween and beyond.
I wish you all a happy and safe Halloween. Remember to make sure your kids are visible to motorist; their candy is checked before it's consumed, and that they are trick or treating in a familiar neighborhood. Have fun and be safe!
