Stride Rite at petitePARADE {Sponsored}

I recently ventured back to Industria Superstudio for the fifth edition of petitePARADE, NYC kids fashion week, in collaboration with VOGUE bambini.  Stride Rite Children’s Group introduced me to the two-day event last year, and as always, their collections continue to shine among leading domestic and international children’s wear collections.

As a person who loves to sew clothes for my children, petitePARADE is incredibly inspirational.  The shows ooze creativity in every detail, from the stand out designs to the hairstyles adorning paper pieces and floral crowns.  I especially enjoy the Stride Rite shows, because the gorgeous footwear can easily transfer off the runway into real-life kid style. The Stride Rite showcase presented Spring 2014 looks featuring Stride Rite, Sperry Top-Sider Kids, Keds Kids, Saucony Kids, and Merrell Kids.  The collections are stylish and functional, incorporating the sort of details that children love.

How adorable are these super heroes?  My son would love to rock Stride Rite's Jedi Masters or Captain America kicks.

These leopard print Sperry Top-Siders with contrasting pink outsoles and laces are a fun modern twist on a classic style.

Sperry Top-Siders were also my favorite option for boys.  The subtle pops of neon are a fun twist.

Stylist Jennifer Smith and Brand Marketing Manager Malinda Freitas explained how the beauty of the brand lies in its attainability. The stylish and practical shoes are carefully crafted to fit into existing wardrobes – catering to the versatility that is synonymous with childhood.
