My 3-1/3 year old loves this shoe. Once I put these on him, he proceeded to run laps around the house and then, since he thought they looked a little like football cleats (not sure I see the resemblance), he started doing crossover drills. He says they are light and very comfortable. I think they look adorable on him. They came with an extra pair of laces. In our case, we got the black and orange ones so the extra laces were black. Definitely go a size and a half bigger, as others have recommended. I originally went up about 1/2 size and it was too small and had to return and get another pair. Luckily, that was super easy with Zappos.

They run small and extremely narrow and very stiff sole....sadly these are going back....only buy if your child has a very skinny foot. My son could barely get his foot in and they look adorable even if they were wide enough they bottom of the shoe is stiff and I couldn't even flex it.

These sneakers definitely run small, so I ordered about one whole size up and they fit perfectly. They are comfortable, and great looking.

My 8 year old tried these on and said "I love these!" Music to this mom's ears! They are made very well and do offer the most arch support I've seen in any of the shoes I have purchased for him to date. I highly recommend this shoe. And always - thank you Zappos for the best customer service! You are by far the best vendor to shop with! Thank you!
