I love these shoes! My 3-year-old has some sensory issues about shoes and he loves them. The way the tongue is attached to one side makes them super easy for him to get on himself, and they're stylish, too. Very lightweight. Wish they had them in MY size!

Great looking but don't fit a toddler's foot. Too narrow to even put on. Insole does match the size of toddler's foot, but fit just isn't working for an average size toddler's foot. Returning these shoes. Too bad they don't fit at all, because they look so cute.

These are my favorite shoes I've ever owned for my son! Absolutely adorable, we get constant comments on them! I will agree that they are narrow. My son has a narrow foot and we had to take the insole out to get him some more room. But I love them! I'm planning on ordering another pair for next summer!

Just received these shoes and they are cute and well made. Zappos states you should order half a size down, which I did, shouldn't have. I should have listened to the other reviewers and ordered a whole size down. Re-ordering.

Love Tsukihoshi shoes. When they get dirty, just throw them in the washer/dryer! So great to be able to do that with boys' shoes! These are water shoes, so we wear them to church, school and to the lake! Love them. Just wish they would make them in larger sizes.

This is a solidly constructed shoe and fits well. Unlike most shoes for our 19 month old son, this one does not routinely slip off.

Very cute, hip and fun shoes. I love the design and style. However, the shoe runs huge, I think Tsukihoshi in general run very large, a full size up. I've had to return shoes of this brand multiple times because the sizing is very odd.

These seem like they are awesome shoes, but I am having to send these back b/c they are at least one entire size too big for my son. We are going to try them in a size smaller and see if that works b/c I really like the idea of a shoe that is so light, breathable, flexible and easy to get on. I wear nothing but barefoot shoes, and I would like to encourage my children to do the same unless they need something else.

These shoes have lasted an entire school year on my four year old and they still look brand new! He loves them as they are easy to put on and do not get that little boy smell! They are so worth every dollar!

This is a super cute shoe and I love this brand. Unfortunately, we are returning it. I had read some of the reviews stating that their kid's foot was too wide for the shoe. My son's feet are pretty wide and the width seemed fine, but his feet are also very thick (top to bottom). That is where the problem with the fit was. I could get his feet in, but could not get the velcro strap across and it just looked uncomfortable for him. Tsukihoshi typically run big, but I found that these were even more so. I am trying to replace another pair that has finally worn out after the third kid. I ordered the same size that he is currently wearing and these were longer than the ones I am replacing. I love Tsukihoshi: they wear well, my kids all love them and they have very fun styles. They are definitely worth the price.

Great lightweight shoe. We are using it for a school shoe now but will see how durable it is when school is out! It washes well. We wash them twice a week at times as his school playground is dusty. My 7 yr old son loves them and the fact that they are a Japanese brand. He says Genga (Bayblades) would wear them. He has sensory issues and is very picky about shoes/socks. This shoe has allowed us to get out the door on time every morning since we got it. That is well worth the cost!

Fantastic. Cute, light weight, washable, easy on and off but secure, comfortable. We started my son in these at age 3, and ended up buying the same exact shoe 2 sizes ahead to have on hand as he grows that is how much we love them. I wish they had them for adults. My son calls them his orange jumpy shoes because he feels comfy jumping around in them. Excellent.

The outsole of these sneakers is very light but durable. My 3-year old son who loves to ride the scooter drags his foot on the ground in order to stop and he has destroyed several pair of shoes in the past year, but these sneakers are holding up the daily abuse over 6 months so far! The mesh fabric as well as the overall fabrication of these sneakers are good quality. And it seems that the "green tea infused - anti-bacterial insole" does work - it kept my active 3-year old son's foot odorless throughout the hot summer days. And the brown/orange color is stylish enough to double as dress sneakers - Highly recommend!

These shoes are very lightweight, breathable, have great support and are easy to put on. They do run very big, however. I had originally ordered the size my grandson usually wore. The shoes were huge! So, I contacted Zappos and their amazing customer service had the size smaller shoes arrive the next day! The smaller shoes fit perfectly and my grandson wears them all the time. Great shoes, just be aware of them running big.

Bought these after stride rite shoes for my son fell apart after one month. They are comfy for his wide foot, seem to run a little large in general, I bought the same size he had been wearing that were getting a little small and they are a little big. After a couple of months of wear they still look new. I bought the same ones a size up so when he outgrows these he can have the same pair. I bought red ones for my older son too.

This is the third pair of Tsukihoshi that I have bought for my son (5 years old now). The best shoes ever. There is no lighter shoe out there. I will be getting this brand for years to come.

We love these shoes. I bought them over a year ago and these shoes have held up great. My son who is 3 has jumped in every puddle and they wash wonderfully. I will be buying these again. They are worth the money.

Great shoes - my son loves them. Light, easy to put on, comfortable, machine washable. I usually get him Wide sizes in the US but with Tsukihoshi, like with any other shoes I buy in Japan, regular width fits just fine.

Another great pair of sneakers! My son wore the Tsukihoshi "Wheel" style and this is similar, however this pair does seem more narrow. Tykes with wider feet may not feel as comfortable. But these shoes have the same great flexibility, fun style, and easy on/easy off. My four year likes that there are "laces," I like that you don't actually have to tie them.
