LEXINGTON, MA--(Marketwired - August 11, 2014) - Stride Rite® (NASDAQ: WWW), the best place to shop for kid's shoes, today announced a significant milestone for Stride Rite® Rewards, hitting the two million member mark in just 18 months.

The app is now available for download on iTunes and Google play.

"Stride Rite is committed to providing moms with a best in class loyalty program experience," said Stephen Donnelly, Stride Rite Children's Group SVP/GM of Direct-to-Consumer. "Through Stride Rite Rewards, we will continue to improve upon our customer marketing capabilities, including plans for more personalized communications and solutions to help families provide the best footwear for their children from birth through the early grade school years."

"Today's market rewards companies that forge strong, successful partnerships," said Ravi Srinivasan, President and CEO of Group FiO. "Stride Rite has been a fantastic client and partner in building what has become a fast growing and powerful loyalty program. They are a terrific and progressive team and we look forward to making further inroads with Stride Rite Rewards to benefit the company and the consumer."

Donnelly added, "With over two million members and growing, we believe the Stride Rite® Rewards program will allow for a deeper and more customizable experience that will benefit our consumers on a variety of levels, while extending our outreach to new, digitally-engaged moms entering the category."

Key features of the new Stride Rite Rewards Application include:
