Was much larger than I expected. I bought four other brands in size 9, and this was at least 1/2 inch longer.

Great Shoes - My daughter loves these shoes, they are a little big in the toe area but overall they are great. My daughter receives so many compliments on them.

Good shoe for chubby feet - I just got these shoes for my three year old and we both love them. I tend to have trouble finding shoes for her because she has wide, chubby feet, but these are great. They're so easy to put on and take off and they're roomy so she seems comfortable in them.

These shoes were just too cute to pass up! My daughter cannot even walk yet (she's 5 months). When she is an established walker, I will have the perfect shoes waiting for her. I purchased the satin leopard print. My son has been getting a new pair of Vans each season since he has been walking and they are always his favorite. It seems that they run a bit big. I don't mind because the kids will grow into them.

Brands I'd also recommend: Geox, Adidas, Primigi

I just ordered my second pair of the luv n butterflies true white/fandango pink. My 20 month old daughter just grew out of her first pair. These are the cutest little shoes. They fit well, are well made and durable, go with everything, are cool, are easy to clean, and she loves them. I highly recommend them.

Brands I'd also recommend: Vans, Salt Water Sandals

Very cute toddler shoe - I bought these shoes (black with butterflies) for my daughter and love them! They seem very comfortable and are super cute. I'm definitely going to get a pair in boys for my son too.

Great Little Shoe - I originally bought a pair of Vans Kids Big School shoes at a department store in Dallas for my 3 year-old-granddaughter. She loved that pair so much I decided to see if you carried the brand and wow! You had all the styles so I bought her another pair. It is such a cute, sassy little shoe and she loves them. The style is simple, but very current. She looks so cute in them and calls them her "fast" shoes because she can run fast in them. Great shoe for a toddler on the go and already LOVES shoes. I am sure we will be back to Zappos for more!

Very Cute - These are the cutest little shoes ever! My 2 yr old daughter just loves them. They are easy to put on & it took her a few times of wearing them to get used to the heavier bottoms of this shoe...but all in all they are worth every penny!

These shoes rock! I LOVE these shoes! I wish they had more styles available in my daughter's size because I would be buying them. It took a bit for my 12 month old to get used to walking in them but they aren't nearly as clunky as some sneakers and she's doing great in them. The velcro style is great for toddlers and the fit is true to size. My daughter has narrow feet but these fit well. Again...I'd be buying more right this minute if there were more styles in her size.

Brands I'd also recommend: Pedi Peds are my other all-time favorite shoe

Love these shoes - These are my daughter's third pair of Vans. They look adorable, hold up very well, and seem to be comfortable -- we've never had any complaints. They go through the washing machine beautifully and we are even saving the pairs she's grown out of for our second child. Lots of compliments on how cute they look. Velcro straps are great for "I can do it myself" kids!

Cute Shoe - My 3 year-old daughter loves these shoes because, unlike shoes with similar styling, because of the Velcro straps, she can put these on and take them off by herself. I like that it has both a sporty and pretty look. The price is right too.

Very Cute and Comfy - These shoes are great for the active toddler. She wears them to daycare on an almost daily basis. Super easy to put on and take off-- more so than the slip-ons we had previous to these. Although I still would buy the slip-ons too.

Her favorite shoes - These shoes are fairly inexpensive and my little girl loves them. They make her look like a 'big girl.' I got the Vans with the sharks and she loves them. The only downside is that they have thick rubber soles and sometimes she trips because they stick to the floor. Other than that, they fit well and most importantly, she loves to put them on.

Great shoe for toddler who wants to do it all - When my daughter learned to put on her own shoes, we tried a pair of velcro Vans. She loves them so much we now have 5 pairs and they wash up really nice so you can keep them clean. My daughter's fav part is she can put them on and take them off ALL BY HERSELF.

Fantastic - I bought these for my daughter...her first pair of sneakers! They fit perfectly and she really loves them. So when her twin brother needed a new pair of sneakers, I bought him the same style but with the rocket ships/planets on them. He loves them too! I highly recommend these shoes.

Cuter than expected! My 2 1/2 year old daughter loved these shoes from the moment I opened the box, which speaks to the color and dolphins. She chooses to wear them often because she can put them on herself.

Very stylish shoe! These shoes are so adorable. My 2 year old always begs to put them on and she looks so cute in them. I ordered a size smaller as some reviewers suggested but when I got them they were too small, so I shipped them back (which was an absolutely wonderful service) and ordered a new pair in her original size. They fit great! I'll be ordering more soon! Thanks Zappos!
