Since Ron Sten opened up his first shoe store in 1971, Sten's Stride Rite has remained a family owned and operated business that has proudly served the greater Pittsburgh area. Sten's has a history of community affiliation working with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Children's Home of Pittsburgh, Project Bundle-Up, Pony Baseball and Interfaith Ministries.

Our business plan is simple, service the customer (not sell), fit the child properly and offer the very best brands and assortment of fashionable styling that provide the best support and comfort for the child.



Sten's Stride Rite is committed to making sure that you and your child's shoe buying experience is made to be memorable and that you'll look forward to each and every visit with us. We know that small feet require BIG care and our certified master fit specialists undergo extensive training in the principles of length, width and support to make sure that your child gets a comfortable and proper fitting every time.
