"Families have put their trust in Stride Rite since 1919 to develop shoes that foster healthy foot development and we are excited to announce our partnership with Sesame Workshop, a four decade old organization that shares our tradition of providing a healthy message to preschoolers and their parents," says Sharon John, president of Stride Rite Children's Group. "The Sesame Street by Stride Rite collection combines the beloved Sesame Street friends that kids love and the Stride Rite quality and comfort moms trust."
