Darling boots, soft rubber and soft lining. Easy on and off. Fit adult feet size 6 with no problem. Look more like dragonflies that butterflies to me. Need orthotic arch supports, but easy enough to add.

Adorable boots - my daughter loved them! Sadly, after only a few months of light wear, they are completely useless. They have cracked on the sides, and the shaft has separated from the base. I am not buying Western Chief boots ever again!

These boots were purchased as a Christmas present. They arrived the day after I ordered them, which at Christmas time is just amazing service! They are adorable, and since shipping is free, I spent what I would have had to pay for shipping on getting the perfect pink boots for a little girl who loves pink! I can\'t rate the fit or comfort, since I don\'t wear a size 10 toddler, but I haven\'t heard of any problems, and in Seattle you can be sure they are getting lots of wear.

Poor quality. My 4 year old was thrilled with the way these looked but within a week the back was split by the end of the month there were 2-3 splits up the back and splits along the sides along the foot bed. I had to wrestle them away from her to throw them away (because she liked the look). I could have gotten plain mud boots for half the cost that would have lasted all summer.

My daughter loves these boots. I give it 4 stars for comfort only because I think they're a half to a full size larger than marked, but with thicker socks, they work just fine.

I got these boots for my 2 year old daughter. She is a size 6, but they were pretty big on her. They fall off if I pick her up, but she can walk in them fine and we'll probably have them for another year, so it's good. There was a strong plastic odor as noted in other reviews, but it aired out in a day. My daughter loves these boots and they look adorable. They are well made and I'm very happy with the product.

These are rainboots. Plain and simple. My daughter of course loves the butterfly and shows it off, and they stay on nice and snug.

There is no reason to even read this review -- buy these boots immediately. My 21 month daughter has had them on constantly since they arrived on our porch; as in with clothes in the day, with pajamas at night. We also bought the matching jacket. I would suggest buying that as well. They are super duper adorable and awesome in photos. Add to cart.

My daughter loves these rainboots. She owned a few other pairs, but this pair was well made. The material is very soft and flexible. She was able to comfortably walk and run in them.

My daughter loved these rainboots. She even wants to wear them when it's not raining. They look exactly like the picture and were good quality - the soles are nice and thick and the upper part is sturdy. My daughter decided to keep the shoe box is came in because it was very pretty as well. They shipped quickly and arrived with no problems. I recommend this item to anyone who is considering it.

These boots are awesome! They come on and off easily, even my 18 month year old can get them on and off. The only problem we have is that she never wants to take them off! They are solid construction, easy for her to walk in, and are holding up exceptionally well despite the fact they are constantly sloshed through mud. The rubber was a little smelly at first, but seems to be going away. Happy I bought them and well worth the price!

Really cute. My 6 year old loves the look. The handles are nice for putting them on and carrying them when they are mucky. These boots are short though, which makes deep puddle splashing and wading in the creek difficult, sadly.

All my kids (boys and girls) have these boots. They're super cute and comfortable, easy to put on/take off but I can't say long-lasting. The seams of some of the pairs (not all) came apart after a while -- okay, maybe 10-20 uses. They're well lined and insulated inside so my feet were still dry. Love them and still buy them; great while they last!

Really cute boots! I believe that they run a little large. My daughter is a size 2 1/2 and I purchased the size 3. She says that they feel a little funny and too big. She's not wearing them often because of the enormous sizing. I know she'll wear them more often when she grows a bit. If I didn't need them to last through a few seasons, I would have purchased the size 2. Also, they are really smelly when you first open the box. Terrible plastic/toxic smell. I let them air out for a day on my porch and they were more tolerable to wear.

Brands I'd also recommend: Merrell Mary Jane's are a great all season play/outdoor shoe, too.

These boots split along the top after only a few wears. What good are rain boots with holes in them?

Cute boots, but they splits along the seems within a few wearing. Now there are large holes and we need to cover them with duct tape-not so cute now! Disappointment.

I purchased 2 of these boots. My older daughters ripped within 5-6 weeks of light wear of this boot. A huge rip up the side. The little daughter's boot has held together but I would not get this product despite the cuteness of them. I read a review that they had ripped on someone else and thought it was a fluke. No, this is a poorly made product.

True to the quality I've experienced in my 7 years as a parent, these little boots are perfect for my 3 year old daughter. She likes anything pink, and I like the handles and toughness of the sole. And, they're not as heavy as other brands I've tried. Western Chief is typically a winner each time, and these were as well.

This rain boot will not work for children who have narrow feet. They will just slip off when they walk, even if it is the right length. We tried 2 different sizes. Sad because they are so cute!

Daughter loves these! They are very cute. They are just the right height and have easy on loops to help pull on. She has only worn them a couple times but so far so good.

We acquired these cute boots at a consignment sale and have gotten a year's worth of wear. No way to tell for sure, but we might be only the second owners. They are very cute, easy for our toddler to get on and off and they must be comfortable as she wears them a lot and never seems to tire of them. The biggest problem now is they are cracked along the top/sides of the feet. It appears to be a crack of the outer shell and perhaps water is not getting through the inner layer, but still seemed important for future owners to be aware of this recurring issue. They are attractive, reasonably-priced and seem to take some wear and tear pretty well for a time.

Very cute boots that were easy for my 2 year old to pull on herself. Disappointed that they split and leaked before she out grew them. I was hoping that they would last longer.

This boot lasted about one month before holes started to appear. A pity, because the style was exactly what was wanted.

Worst boot ever! These boots wore out in 2 short months from a not so athletically inclined 8 year old. The rubber wore down on the heel to the core and the back of the boot took a laceration that ran the length of the back seam. While my daughter loved the design, the durability was unacceptable.
