My nine year old son wears these with his school uniform every day. He says they are 'awesome.' They keep his feet dry and allow him to run fast at recess too. They have nice tread for winter days when it could be snowy or icy. They also slip on fast, which he likes. We normally buy Merrell Jungle Mocs, but Zappos was out, so we bought these and are very pleased.

We just purchase these in January, started wearing them about the middle of the month and by March 1st I noticed the soles were peeling off. And this is on my son who is not hard on his clothes. A friend noticed it too and commented that she won't buy Timberland shoes either for the same reason.

My son loves these shoes for school and wears them even outside of school . They are holding up well and he thinks they are the most comfortable shoes he has had.

These shoes are great! My sons have to wear black shoes with their school uniform. When I get them shoes with laces, they are always untied! These shoes are sturdy, comfortable and neat looking.

Well made shoe! I couldn't find a nice black leather shoe for my son's orchestra performance. Zappos to the rescue! I ended up ordering a few pairs to find just the right shoe and love the quick delivery and free shipping. This is an awesome service!

My son loves these shoes. He's a casual kid, so these are great for church & times he has to wear something nicer than a sneaker. He's worn them for a month. They're comfortable and look good with jeans or khakis. The brown is really dark; he wore with black pants & looked fine.

This is the 3rd year in a row that I am purchasing these shoes for my son. They are comfortable, easy to get on, durable and shine up nicely. We use them as a part of the Boy Scout uniform and they have been great for hiking.

I have bought these shoes multiple times (men’s and children). My husband's first-he loves them (very comfortable and well made). Then I found them for my boys, now 10 and 8. They don't like to dress up, so these are a great option to make it easy. They are very comfortable and good enough looking for a wedding. They even hold up more than well enough to pass them down. We have gotten at least 3 boys usage out of the first pair.

from Greensboro NC (via B'klyn, NY)

Fabulous Shoe! Timberland does it again w/this shoe. My son is in middle school and feels comfortable wearing it to school with a pair of jeans due or even w/a pair of khakis when we go out. He says they are very comfortable. The shoe is very sturdy; the seams are sewn tight; the rubber sole and the arch support provide the comfort; the leather is supple. It's a great way to get your son to wear shoes to school and still be fashionable. If you buy Timberland, then you are aware the shoes/boots tend to be 1/2 size bigger. Great Buy! Great Price!

Not Just For Kids (or Boys)! I started looking for these shoes after seeing them on a co-worker who'd "borrowed" the ones her son was wearing. After doing a little research to determine the youth size equivalent for a women's size 8.5 (which is a size 7, by the way), I ordered the shoes. They are a great casual shoe, very comfortable, look great with jeans, khakis or cords. I'd highly recommend them.

My eight-year-old loves these shoes! I picked out six pair of brown leather shoes and these are the ones my son chose. He even wears them to go out and play, I think because they don’t tie, they are more convenient. They are very sturdy and look like they will last till he grows out of them, rather than wear out. He says they are ‘a little loose’ but I can't seem to find that. Also, a little boy at my son’s school called these shoes 'old man shoes' and my son was outraged. He replied with ‘They are Timberlands!’ Lol.

Nice basic shoes, very soft leather and comfortable for my 7 year old son. We got these for church, school, and to give his feet a rest from sneakers all the time. They are rugged and worth the money.

Wonderful shoe, very stylish and works well as a casual shoe and a dress shoe. My son loves wearing these and while they were stiff at first being of a higher quality thick leather, they have stretched out nicely. These are highly recommended.

Having small, wide feet, shopping the boy's department is a solution for me for walking shoes. My perfect shoe would be a 5.5W, and a 3.5M boys is much easier to find. I've always loved Timberland style and quality. These shoes are terrific!

I am so pleased with my recent purchase. The shoes are a wonderful fit! I have a very hard time finding a good fit when I buy shoes. Zappos is a great company that offers a wonderful service. My order was promptly received. I will do business with Zappos in the future. I love the shoes, they are very comfortable!
