Run about a half to full size small as other reviewers have noted. We ordered this style (Gizmo) as well as the "Tin Tin" style for our preschooler. The Gizmos are a breeze for a small child get on and off independently due to the extra support in the achilles tendon area and the stretchy tabs. The Tin Tins were a little more difficult (the heel area was the problem). Overall, we're extremely satisfied with the Foamtreads quality. Very sturdy and comfortable-looking. Definitely not the average slippers you'd find in a big box store. Most importantly, our child loves them.

Great indoor shoe - I bought these shoes for my two year old who needed indoor shoes for his preschool. He needed shoes that he can put on himself. These did the trick.

Expensive, but worth it! I tend to spend more money on my 2 year old's shoes than I do on my own, but I feel his growing little feet deserve the best. These slippers are expensive, but they are soft, warm, cuddly, easy for him to get on & off himself, and have a non-skid bottom. For me, they are worth every penny!

Brands I'd also recommend: Ecco, Geox

Smaller than size indicated - Nicely made, but they run between a half and whole size smaller than indicated.

Very nice slipper - My son really likes this slipper and he's usually a socks-only kind of kid. They are easy for him to put on and take off and they seem pretty comfortable to me. I haven't washed them yet, but it looks like it would hold up to washing well.

Comfy foamtreads - We really like these slippers for our son. They are very well made. The rubber sole provides plenty of traction for running around. He says they are super comfortable, and a breeze to slip on and off.

Foamtreads Kids Gizmo - The first slipper my 9 year old son would ever wear!! I gave up a few years ago buying slippers for him, because they were never worn. He loves these slippers!! Thanks!

Sturdy slippers! Easy on and off. Cute, too. No lining for warmth so we use with socks on.

Eh... These slippers are a half size too small, but do stretch in width a bit after wearing them.

These are awesome shoes! my son loves them to the point he does not want to wear other shoes. I got them for him to wear at home as slippers but he wants them on all the time... We had to buy a second pair cause he outgrew the old loved pair!

These are working great for my grandson! After reading reviews, I ordered a size larger, but they were too large. Did exchange on line, printing return label and ordering down a size. New size came very quickly! Easy to drop off return pair!

My son wears these at his preschool and he says they're great. I think they're adorable. He has wide feet and they fit fine. Maybe run a little small.

Great slipper needed something with a sturdy sole for warmth and support. Good for playing in the basement and garage...stays on too for active kids.

My grandson loves these and wears them all the time. They are more like street shoes than house shoes. They have a great sewn on sole (tan not black as in the picture). They will certainly last as long as he can wear them.

Got this for my nephew and my son to wear inside during daycare. It's comfortable, easy to put shoes on and off (being asian we take off our shoes often) My son also has wide feet, and these shoes made it really comfortable for him. Easy to put on and comfy with the shoes on.

I love this shoe. It's durable, washable, and my son is able to put it on and take it off by himself. Unfortunately the adult slippers by this same company are terribly made...go figure.

I want to love these slippers, they sure are cute, but they are very difficult to get on. For those of you with kids that run on the wider side of "medium" like me, I think this brand might run a little narrow for you, and may require a little too much elbow grease to get on for a slipper. He certainly can't put them on himself.

Bought these for my son to wear in his preschool classroom. They were easy for him to take off/on himself, and we're both comfortable and cute. The sole began peeling off before the end of the year, and I had to glue them together to make it to the end of the school year.

These shoes look very sturdy, look comfortable, I like the non-slip bottom. But I still have to give it one star. I bought these shoes for my 2.5 year old girl. We have hardwood floors and I want her to have slipper to keep her warm during winter. I was hoping she could wear them without socks on bare feet. Get out of the bed in the morning put them on, as her mom and dad. I tried to put them on her feet and she just cried that it was hurting. The little elastic on the sides, which makes putting shoes on easy, has such sharp edges that it scratched her skin. I put my hand there and those ends are very hard and very sharp. These shoes may work if you wear socks, but they definitely can not be worn without socks.
