My children attend private school, and I have been buying this brand of "uniform" shoe for four years. They look great, they're comfortable, and they wear well!

The finish on the right shoe on the top half is rough and not smooth like the rest of the shoe. The left shoe is better. Quality of the finish is not acceptable for the price.

It’s alright - Overall look of the shoe is nice, but it’s so hard to break into the shoe. My toddler has worn them three weeks and its still frustrating to put on. I have to take out the laces from the first hole to be able to put them on him without really hurting his heel. Otherwise they really put blisters on them.

For a boy to remark about clothing, you know something has to be right. He loves these shoes, and I think we'll stick with this brand and just keep ordering bigger sizes rather than look for a new style every season!

Good shoe for your preschooler. I first ordered the Jumping Jacks shoe which was terrible. The color on the tip of the shoe wore off in one day. Anyway, I got these as a replacement and they have held up much better. I would definitely recommend these shoes. My little guy loves them.

A very beautiful and very well made shoe. Goes perfectly with school uniforms. Had one slight problem with a discomfort in the padding in the rear of the ankles, as reported by my very astute 3 year old grandson, so I squished it with a cloth under pliers, took 2 minutes, it was like the princess and the pea, and then they were perfect. A very wonderful shoe.

Great support and structure for growing feet. My son has narrowish feet and this shoe fits well. He wore Doc Martens last year and this shoe seems to be keeping its shape far better. He wears them as part of his school uniform and thinks they are okay for a uniform shoe.

My sons have been wearing these shoes for their school uniform for 3 years now. They stand up to young boy wear and tear pretty well and my kids find them comfy. The round shoelaces are difficult for my kids to tie though and tend to come undone for the first few weeks. Also, could use them in a double wide for one of the kids, had to go with NB tennies.

It is very difficult to find extra wide shoes for my son. Thanks for carrying a variety! He likes to wear the shoes even though he is primarily a sneakers kind of kid. So they must feel good.

We bought these shoes for our nephew for school. They fit great! The wide is definitely wide enough for his feet. They've held up pretty well for what a kindergartner can put them through.

These were darling and perfect for the 3 year old ring bearer. Run really big and the shoe laces are coated and stiff cord which won't stay tied. Replace when you get them.

My son needed black uniform shoes for band. These are not only comfortable for him but fit his skinny feet! If your child is thin, don't bother getting loafers, get lace-ups like these.

I bought these for my six-year-old son for church. These were nicer than I had expected, and perfect for what we were looking for. Zappos is WONDERFUL! Zappos' great service, ease in ordering, and fast delivery makes shopping for shoes for my four children so much easier!!!

This is a good, sturdy shoe with a good fit for a wide foot, and excellent grip for a boy who loves to be very active, and plays baseball no matter what the occasion (or footwear).

My grandson was the ring bearer at his aunt and uncle's wedding. The shoes given to him by the tuxedo wearhouse were much too small for his feet. I ordered these shoes through Zappos and received them the very next day. They fit perfectly! They are great quality and seem very comfortable for an active little boy!

PERFECT SHOE for my active 6 year old. And even more perfect in that it\'s navy because he has to have navy shoes for his school uniform requirements. I purposely ordered them a half size bigger because he\'s in that "in between" stage in sizes. Hopefully, they will last the entire school year!

Very comfortable shoe! I am a little person and wear a youth size shoe. I will be married soon and needed a shoe to match the shoes of my groomsmen. They have mens adult size brown oxfords. These shoes match very, very close. Mark me a very happy person.

Great shoe - Great shoe, comfortable and I love that it comes in a wide. It can be difficult to find a nice shoe in wide for kids. Holds up nicely also, my son has worn these before for everyday school shoes. Zappos is great as always, the fast shipping is much appreciated.

I bought these school shoes for my granddaughter. They are sturdy and the style fits the shape of her foot. For the money, these shoes are a good value. They clean up easily with just a gum eraser and wire brush.
