My daughter loves this shoe. She was disappointed when we went to the Vans store and they only carried it in "adult" size. Same exact color, but in her size.

Great shoe, just what the toddler ordered! My daughter has a dress code and needed a solid color sneaker for school. These shoes are perfect: good-looking, comfortable (for a discriminating six year old), and great for running around at recess.

I bought these for my 21 year old daughter (she has very tiny feet) in a size 4. They are a little big for her, so I would say that the sizes are not true to size. If you would normally wear a 4 you may want to go down to a 3.5. Even though these are a bit big for her, she has worn them several times and gotten a lot of compliments. The color is a deep purple (very pretty) and they are super comfortable. The price at Zappos is great!

Service - This is the first time I have ordered from Zappos. I will order again. The shoe was on back-order and Zappos contacted me when they came in. The service was excellent!

I bought the beige pair; they are so adorable, unfortunately very uncomfortable. I only wear them when I know I won't be walking much.

Blue Jewel Vans Kids Shoes - I love this shoe!!!! It was little uncomfortable but it looked great!!! I wore white socks with them when I first got them and the dye turned them blue! It comes clean in the washing machine though. Not sure if they're washable... but you could maybe try hand-washing in cold water.

I bought these for my 9 year old son. After a seamless exchange (thanks Zappos) I got the correct size. They seem to run rather big.

True to size. My daughter loves these sneakers. she is 15 yet still wears a 3 1/2 - 4 shoe. These make her feel grown up. Or at least her age.

I bought this for my 8 year old for school. Their uniform requires all black shoes so these are perfect. They are narrow but seem to fit my kid just fine. They have very little arch support so if this is an issue for you, this could be a problem. My son loves vans - this is the 5th pair he has owned. He is into skateboarding so he thinks these are pretty cool.

These were purchased for my daughter. She just turned 5 and has a rapidly growing foot so ordered these a size bigger than she normally wears to have room to go. Well they will not be lasting long because they fit her perfect and had no room for her foot to grow. But overall fits great now, very cute, and she loves them.

Second set of these I have purchased for my 5 yr. old grandson. Excellent quality. Very pleased with the service from Zappos. Had to return the first pair (too small) and most efficient return and also the fastest return I have ever experienced. Would highly recommend Zappos and these Vans kids shoes. Very well pleased!

Best customer service ever! This style runs small so take into consideration ordering a 1/2 size bigger. Very easy reorder & return. All an even exchange.

These are the cutest vans ever. I have never seen leather vans but these are amazing. My son wears them with is uniform. I like the fact that we can just wipe them off. Strongly recommend

This was my first Zappos purchase and I was really happy and satisfied. My Vans shoes came in quick. The shoes fit me perfectly (I have small feet so kids size it is). I will definitely order again. Thank you, Zappos!
