This is a great looking, comfortable shoe. My son loves the style and the shoes were comfortable right out of the box. The laces really make the shoe look different (in a good way).

I would never recommend these shoes. After 2 weeks they were falling apart sent in for another pair and in less than a week the bottoms are spill in.

I bought these for my grandson and a different pattern for my granddaughter. They both loved them.

My 12 year old son really wanted these shoes and is completely satisfied with them. They are the style he wanted. These shoes seem pretty durable. He did wear them for a full day of walking one day and his ankles hurt at the end of the day. Both my kids have wanted Etnies and the only place we've been able to find what they want is Zappos. Love Zappos!

"Awesome, Mom!" These shoes are a big hit with my 3rd grade son. The kids on the bus love the shoe laces. They fit well and have the perfect amount of padding for skater dudes. These rise a little bit higher on the ankle than typical shoes, which both my boys find to be very comfortable.

My son saw these shoes and had to have them. He says they are very comfortable and "the girls dig my shoes". He likes the suede feel and look.

Cool style and my 4 year old likes them. The only problem is that the top lace holes are not punched correctly so you can't lace the top part of the shoe. We decided to just punch a hole ourselves instead of sending them back.

Nice looking shoe. Have purchased other Etnies that held up well, but this one developed one inch cracks in the rubber toes after one week. Perhaps it was just a bad pair. Zappos customer service did an amazing job of helping out with the problem.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n

My son loved the style and comfort, but 3 days later, the shoelaces fell apart. They are so delicate, the couldn't withstand any hardship. He only stepped on the laces once and they fell apart. One of the reasons we bought the sneakers is that the laces looked so cool; well, only for a week, because then we had to replace the laces with plain black ones that are still holding up.

Does not look as cool when you get them at home. They also wear out quickly, within three weeks there was a hole in the bottom of the sole.

These are lovely looking shoes that are comfortable but my eight year old son went through the sole in just two weeks! That was not good. Obviously a really thin sole. Do not waste your money on these.

Brands I'd also recommend: Not Vans as they are about as bad when it comes to how long they last

These sneakers lasted 7 weeks. The sole is completely worn through. My son has owned DC sneakers before, and they lasted more than 6 months with the same level of wear and tear! I am disappointed in these sneakers and won't buy etnies for him again.

My son love these shoes...that is, until after only a week the sole separated from the back of the shoe. We returned them for the same shoe, since he loved them so much, and the same thing happened again. There's no reason for a shoe to fall apart after only a week of wear and there is obviously a manufacturer's defect happening here. In the end, we had to get a different shoe. If you're looking for a good shoe, that will stand up to active boy play, this is not the one.

I had to have them but I wore them for 2 weeks and went easy on them. Next time I walked there was a huge rip in the bottom and the bottom almost came off, even after my dad glued the bottom 2 times. Finally after a few moths of having a I need new sneakers. Not worth the money!

No arch support, very little padding. Poke inside heel and see your finger come through the outside sole. Want to give your child foot problems, then buy these. 2 weeks and off to dr.

Not only does my son love these kicks but he gets tons of compliments on them. The bright colors fit his personality and style and go with so many outfits. Of course the white shoelaces dirtied quickly but that's an easy fix.

My son was super excited about these shoes - loved how they looked. However, we have only had them a very short time, and already they are breaking down. Style = 5; quality = 3.

I love the way these shoes look. I think I jumped the gun on getting my four year old shoes that tie. These shoelaces come undone a lot and he can't tie them himself so... They're also hard to get his foot into them. We have to push really hard. They are so cute though. Probably better for older kids. Wish they made them with Velcro or elastic ties. He's also complained about them hurting him a few times.

My son loves these shoes, but the soles do wear down VERY quickly, similar to Vans mid-tops. However, the comfort outweighs the quality on this one, so we're getting him another pair.

I bought these for my 4.5 year old boy. They look great when he puts them on. But he doesn't seem to like them. Because they are so stiff to put on. So basically, I need to help him put them on and he doesn't like that. I also find that it's a struggle to get them on him. They are stiff. I had hoped they would soften after a few wears but no. I guess they are skate shoes and good for holding the foot together for skating but for a 4 year old...well I should have gone for good old fashioned runners. he tells me he doesn't like them.

Brands I'd also recommend: bobux, saucony, new balance,
