My 10 year old picked these out and she loves them. They run a little wide though but because of the laces, that isn't much of a problem. Her favorite color is pink, so half of her wardrobe is pure pink and the other half has at least a little pink in it so these match everything she owns. These are very cute sneakers and a nice addition to the wardrobe of any little girl who loves pink.

I love this shoes! I love Vans! It fits me perfectly. I had no problem with shipping and that's the best part for me. Nothing beats Zappos! I love y'all! Thanks for the convenience.

Finding reasonably priced, sturdy tennis shoes seems to be a challenge these days, so I am very pleased with the Vans. I don't want to spend more money on a pair of shoes for my daughter because her feet are growing so fast. The past two or three pairs of tennis shoes that I have bought for my daughter wore out within a couple of months. When I saw these Vans I felt optimistic as they have a good reputation for quality. I haven't been disappointed.

My daughter is bananas about these shoes. She has some seriously wide feet and for something she actually likes to fit her, and not have to be labeled "wide", makes her ecstatic. Not to mention it makes me happy to see her so excited about shoes! They're well made and come in fun colors and patterns. Plus they just look great when she wears jeans.

I ordered these shoes for my 18 year old daughter. she loves Hello Kitty and Vans. She normally wears a size 4 but I knew to order a size 3. They came the next day. In time for her to wear them when she went out that night. She said that they are very comfortable. She loves them.

Well what is there to say? They are Vans, my little girl's first Vans ever, and she loves them. They have Hello Kitty everywhere. The quality is great, and they stay clean. They are the perfect color, and the perfect fit. I love them, she loves them, and we are all happy.

Brands I'd also recommend: Nike, Sketchers, and all Zappos shoes!

Bought these for my 7 y/o daughter for school, she loves them! So stylish and trendy. I ordered a size smaller than her usual shoe due to their sizing. They run small like Converse do. Great shoe!

These shoes are super cute and well constructed, but they run a little big so if you're between sizes, order the smaller size. Zappos shipping was lightning fast.

This being our first pair of Vans for our 8 year old, I ordered down 1/2 size...no need, they were too snug. Reordered 1/2 size up and the shoes were on my doorstep the next afternoon. Genius!

These shoes are so stylish and comfortable! My 10 year old daughter loves them and says she's gotten lots of compliments. She loves the style of the polka-dot fade. But she says in P.E. when she goes on the grass, they get stained green. Overall, these shoes are great!

I love these shoes! They are so fashionable and I have gotten so many compliments on them! They are super comfortable. I can never get tired of walking in them. But they get dirty really easily, and the dirt really shows on the bright blue canvas part of my shoes. But I still love these shoes. The quality of the shoes is great too. I would recommend these shoes to anyone! I would love to buy more Vans in the future.

My 13 yr. old daughter loves these shoes. True to size and comfortable according to her. Best of all, we got them the next day. I love Zappos, you make a difference. You always try to take a step higher from the rest with your efficient and very fast delivery!

These run a half-size too big. We exchanged them for a smaller size and then bought heelcups to make them fit better. She had to keep them because they're so cute!

These ran big. My daughter wears a 2 and she wore a 1 in these. The shoes are really cute and I think comfortable for her, but the band of the sole that runs around the shoe began to separate from the shoe after only a few weeks not to mention the glitter didn't last long either.

Review for Zappos Rewards Points
(What's this?)

Char

from Angleton, TX

I bought these for my 9 year old daughter for Christmas...though she hasn't worn them yet, they are super-adorable! When held (sole-to-sole) next to a pair of her tennis shoes (that she currently wears, w/toe room), they appear to be similarly sized...based on that, I would say they run true-to-size. SO cute, and go with everything! Zappos' customer service is totally on-point, too. When I made a purchase of a different pair of shoes for my other daughter, I realized quickly I ordered a size that was too small. Zappos made the exchange totally stress-free! They have an online exchange option, which is SO convenient when you can't make personal phone calls at work! Thank you, Zappos...you rock! :)

My 11 yo granddaughter loves these! She has been in a big kids' 3-3.5 in other shoes, but the 3.5 in this style was too small. I returned for a sz 4, and it's PERFECT. This shoe definitely runs small! Recommend these, just size up
