Great shoe. My daughter needed shoes with leather lining and upper to prevent athletes foot/sweaty feet problems. She loves these shoes - comfortable and sturdy.

Exactly what I was looking for. My daughter needs mary janes for her school dress uniform and finding ones that are attractive, comfortable, and that can stand the day-to-day abuses of a 4th grader is no easy task. We're three weeks into the school year and the shoes look great. The flexible sole and padding on the heel make the shoe super comfortable. I highly recommend these shoes!

A wonderful shoe! I bought these shoes to add a little pizazz to my daughter's school uniform, and wow, does it! She gets compliments each day. They are so comfortable, my 6-year-old wants to wear them everywhere and pretty much does. Looks like I will be back mid-year to buy another pair. As per fit, we have the problem of shoes fitting great in length but not in width, as they usually fit too wide at the heel. Not a problem with these shoes - I think they may run a bit narrow.

Love the shoe - Simply beautiful! It looks rich and you can dress it up or down. It’s a shoe every little girl should have in their closet.

These shoes look great and fit great. My daughter loves them and they are easy to wear and comfortable. This shoe is light, and breaks in easily, so no blisters. My daughter is six years old but she is very tall and has feet to match (appropriately so), but in larger sizes sometimes the shoes look too mature and not as comfortable for younger kids. The Jumping Jack Abby is pretty and comfortable.

Very cute shoes for little girls - I purchased these shoes for 5 & 6 year olds to wear during the holidays. They look great with dresses but are also cute with jeans. The girls love them.

Love these shoes - My daughter is thrilled with these shoes! Her long and lanky feet (dubbed "hot dog feet") fit well in the Narrow and the velcro adjustable strap helps enhance the narrow fit even more.

Brands I'd also recommend: The same ones in all the colors! New Balance sneakers (run narrow) and Sperrys.

These boots are just what I was looking for. Motorcycle/Rocker Chick style in a mid calf boot. I am an exact size 7 shoe always, but the 7 in these was uncomfortable with thick winter style socks, so I reordered in a 7.5. The 7.5 is absolutely perfect, the calf is adjustable for thick or small legs. These look great with jeans, tucked in or tights and a sweater dress or tights and a mini skirt. Love them!

Great school shoe - Love the dark brown color in the patent leather. My daughter is so hard on shoes...the patent leather doesn’t scuff and still looks new.

Brands I'd also recommend: Stride rite mary janes....but their sizing is limited in the larger youth sizes

These run true to size. My daughter really likes them and says that they are comfortable. Only complaint is that the black soles scuff the red leather very easily. Haven't worked really hard to scrub it off yet, but it isn't coming off with a quick rub or scratch so far. The soles do seem very good on the ice though, which we have a lot of here.

These shoes are very cute and comfortable for our 4.5 year old daughter, although she needed to break them in first as the patent leather is stiff.

Great school shoe - These shoes run pretty true to size. The only thing my daughter said was that the shoe was a little tight around her heel...I figure they just need to be worked in a bit. Other than...classic style that goes with just about everything.

Brands I'd also recommend: stride rite's mary janes...but for big girls the sizing is limited

I am disappointed in this shoe & at the same time, a bit thankful. My daughter has narrow feet. Jumping Jacks is the only retailer I can find that still makes them, for that I am very thankful! But as for this shoe, it is sturdy & well made in the structure of the shoe and horrible with the red patent. Notice it never says red patent leather like other shoes (the ones I always use to by from Stride Rite). Red Patent leather, when you scuff it, just leaves a scratch. On these, the red plastic film peels up! The inside of the shoe, where your feet touches is leather or a really good look alike but somehow that is bonded with an exterior of something! We bought 2 pairs of these in December 2012 (for Xmas dresses but also, my daughter loves red shoes! And we couldn't find any anywhere that didn't leave her feet swimming & sliding around, in this price range). So I was thrilled & bought her current size & one to grow into, these were on sale at the time (I thought they were on sale because they might be discontinued). My daughter immediately put them on, hadn't had them on for 10 minutes, sat down on the sidewalk to draw with sidewalk chalk (nothing rowdy like climbing a tree), like she had done with her prior pairs of red mary janes & then I hear her yell out & say "My shoes!" I look down & the front toes are all scratched up. I said what did you do. She said nothing I just sat here playing (she is 5). She was on the driveway & as she was drawing, through the natural course of things, rubbed her feet against the concrete. You would have thought she had rubbed them against the tree or sand paper, it was so bad! I called customer service & I must say, they are amazing! So helpful & kind! I decided to return the larger pair but have the current pair replaced because we had to have something for her Christmas dress. We have not let her play outside in this pair, but she has worn them to school. And she knows to be very cautious. There have been no scuffs, just dirt marks. Here is another problem with them, if you clean them off, with either a wipe or plain water on a wash cloth, it takes the shine off (& you cannot buff it back, it is gone!). So now I have no scuffs/scratches on her shoes, but the heels are shiny & the front is dull. They are such a disappointment because, they are sturdy well built shoes, velcro is great, sole is great, no pulling away or anything (since Xmas I have let her do more in them -- she wears them to school 2-3 times a week, even in gym class). If they were actual red patent leather, these would be amazing shoes. To give the benefit of the doubt, since these are no longer on clearance, maybe they have fixed the problem. But if they haven't & yours do what ours did, you are not the only one!

Beautiful shoes, but daughter says these feel tighter in the toe box than her other Jumping Jack shoes (that are the same size).

While the sizing seems fine, I have been really disappointed with these. The red is coming off both on the toes (high contact area) and in the grooves made in the leather from wear. We had a pair of Jumping Jacks once before, and that didn't happen. And while I expect some wear, the Stride Rites we had never lost their red finish like these. They look really awful after just a couple months. A friend of mine is having the same problem with her daughter's same shoes, so don't think it is just one defective pair. How I wish Stride Rite still made red ones!

Unsatisfactory. The Abby comes up too high on the ankle and leaves a blister, even with socks. Also, even the wide width runs a bit narrow and they don't come in extra-wide.

The shoe is pretty but after the forth time worn, the patent leather is peeling off. I am very disappointed with this shoe. I have purchased other patent leather brands and never had this problem so soon!

My grandaughter loves these red shoes. She is 3 and a half and the 8.5 fits with a little room to grow. She wears them with dresses and leggings. Very sturdy and excellent quality but pricey.

Perfect little shoe for a rough little girl. After several hours of wearing for the first time, my daughter did mention her feet were bothering her but she's more of a barefoot kinda girl (doesn't like wearing shoes at all... even sneakers).

Fit well, looked nice but did not hold up. One wear and they were scuffed and creased. We chose these over our usual purchase of a similar shoe by Primigi because of the lower price and the availability in a narrow shoe, but I definitely would not purchase them again.
