If you attended the Stride Rite Sitewarming Party 10 days ago, the Sensory Response Technology (SRT) is probably not a completely alien term to you. But for those who weren't present, I'd like to introduce you to this groundbreaking technology behind the newly launched Stride Rite SRT baby shoes. You're also welcome to become a fan of Stride Rite on Facebook to stay informed of exclusive offers and promotions.
Backed by in-depth research and extensive testing, the revolutionary children's footwear technology SRT, can improve the way a baby learns to walk via "a sensory feedback system, an ultra-flexible design that allows for more freedom of movement, and a unique construction that reduces the number of stumbles and falls." The SRT shoes also contain many features to make baby comfortable. Their moisture-wicking linings help keep baby's feet drier longer. They use eco-friendly materials such as a recycled EVA heel cup and a partially recycled outsole. The removable insole that contains a Fit Check™ system helps parents know when it is time to see a fit specialist.
The Stride Rite SRT fall collection consists of four boys' styles and seven girls' styles in infant/toddler sizes 3 to 8 in various widths and styles. Additional designs will be available in spring 2010.
Since babies' first steps help shape their walking gait into adulthood, it is important to choose proper shoes for new walkers. I wish these innovative shoes had been available when my son first started walking. For quite some time, he was resistant to wearing shoes and preferred to walk barefoot. His first pair of shoes looked incredibly cute, but I noticed that his feet became sweaty every time the shoes were taken off. That probably explained why he didn't like to be confined in those stuffy shoes. Interestingly though, it was not until he started practicing in shoes that he was able to walk steadily and without support. He amazed me with how well he walked independently on the day he turned one year old! The milestone came overnight.
