Stride Rite & Marvel Partner To Create Collection Of Superhero Shoes

With the mega Spider Man buzz that has been going around lately, it was only a matter of time that someone partner with Marvel, and who better than Stride Rite! Recently, the brand signed a multi-year licensing agreement with Marvel Entertainment to create and design a collection of shoes for children, inspired by Marvel’s infamous superhero characters: Spider-Man, Captain America and Iron Man. Styles will include sport shoes, athletic styles and casual sandals.

WWD has reported that the very first design – the Spider-Man Web-Slinger sneaker ($55) – will be launching this holiday season in Stride Rite retail stores and footwear shops across Canada and the U.S. The shoe will offer Stride Rite’s Super Slingshot technology, a neat feature which allows children to run faster and jump higher thanks to the energy return.

The rest of the shoe collection will be rolling out in 2012 and prices will run from $22 to $55.

    We bought one of the first pairs of these shoes. There is a design flaw in the tongue that caused my sons ancle to be swollen and sore after the first day of wearing them. This is not a break in issue, nor a size issue. Most shoes will be smaller at the top center of the tongue. These shoes unfortunately get bigger and have extra material in that area. This results in what is like think plastic digging into your child’s ankle. Don’t buy, no matter how much your kids like spiderman and the color red!
