I love Stride Shoes- I think that they are cute and extremely well made. Unfortunately, I also think that they are very expensive. I cannot rationalize spending a lot of money on a pair of shoes that my daughter will outgrow in a couple of months. Stride Rite outlet to the rescue! While some things are still overpriced, they are much more reasonable than at other stores. The Grove City Outlet is well laid out- you can easily get a stroller through the aisles and clean. Even if you do not have kids, they have a decent selection of adult shoes.
