Love! My son has worn these shoes since August and they are just now starting to get worn out and a bit small. Love this brand...only brand I will buy from now on. Probably our 5th pair and they last forever, grow with the foot.

These were our second pair of this brand and we were very disappointed. They basically fell apart, I've never used so much shoe goo in my life. The rubber sole wasn't bonding to the synthetic polished leather and kept coming off and the red rubber on the sole kept coming apart. Would not recommend these shoes.

My 5 yr old with a wide foot loves these shoes. We'd been buying the Tsukihoshi Euros in the past but recently discovered the Flame which he now only wants. My son wears orthotics to correct flatfootedness/low tone and there is plenty of room for the orthotic (we do remove the footbed insert that comes with the shoes, however.) My only complaint is that the outside tread wears down really quickly so that we end up needing to buy a replacement pair every six months.

These are my son's absolute favorite shoes! He also has a pair of the speeds in black that he wears to school as part of his uniform. My son has feet that are wider in height (not width) than normal and Tsukihoshi shoes are the only brand that feel really comfy for him. They are extremely flexible, lightweight and do not get smelly (because of the green tea insoles). We have had 9 pair of Tsukihoshi shoes and they have all been wonderful. They even hold up until he outgrows them. I will continue to buy them as long as they come in his size.

I purchased the shoes for the bright orange colors on the shoes. The shoes are lightweight and breathable, with velcro closures. I have to compliment Zappos return policy because I initially ordered the wrong size shoes. It was so refreshing to be serviced by such an experienced, courteous and professional customer service representative. All stores should strive for your perfection.

To start, I should say that my son is about to turn 7 and therefore still cannot tie shoe laces. We had also recently brought him to a podiatrist who had given us insoles. The Dr. advised that if my son was not going to use laces, he needed a double "velcro" shoe. Well, it seems that a vast majority of double "velcro" shoes have lights, which I did not want. I was extremely impressed with this shoes - they sized perfectly, the insoles come out easily, they are smart and snazzy and my son says they are super comfortable. They are flexible and sturdy at the same time - and they don't light up! I am very happy with my purchase. And I love the fact that I was able to order multiple sizes and get everything within 24 hours and be able to return for free!

What can I say? We love Tsukihoshi shoes. They are flexible but supportive enough for growing feet and fit my son's slightly wide foot. Plus, they come in all sorts of fun colors & styles; my son is partial to orange these days so these fit the bill.

This is my second pair of this brand of sneakers for my son (different style). These shoes can't be beat! I can't imagine buying anything else. They are super lightweight and best yet, they are machine washable. They come out looking brand new every time. However, if they are covered in a lot of dirt or mud, as they often are from my 5-year old, I usually have to spray them with Shout or stain remover before laundering. I've never used a color safe bleach, but that might work, too. Mind you, that is just a tip for when the shoes are filthy. I never mind spending the extra money on these sneakers because they last so long. My son loves them! He calls them his "racing shoes."

My son loves these sneakers. He had a pair of Geox before this, and these are so much lighter that he declared he can run sixty miles an hour in them. This particular pair is a little more structured that the Tsukihoshi sneakers my older son has. I like the added strapping around the forward part of the foot, and am hoping that it will wear better than the all-mesh style. As for comfort - no complaints at all, and he's been wearing them for two weeks straight. Like most of their shoes, these run a little large, but not too dramatically.

Great product! Our son has been wearing Tsukihoshi shoes for his wide feet since he was about 14 months old. This shoe, like all the others we've purchased, are a great product. My fave part is the wash ability!

We have had great luck with Tsukihoshis, and this pair was no exception. My five-year-old son likes them and has no problem putting them on himself, and they have held up very well over the past few months, including a number of washings. He is just now growing out of them, and they still look great.

This was the fourth pair of Tsukihoshi shoes I bought for my son! I bought Nike before and I checked other brands but these shoes are very well designed. I run a lot so I always get good shoes and for my son I think these are very good!

I love this brand of sneakers for both my son and daughter, but this style for my son did not seem to fit the same as any other we have tried so far. It seemed too narrow and he actually cried when we tried it on him a few separate times. I do love this brand - they are well made and cute - but I would stay away from this style if you've had luck with the other styles.

I bought these for my 6 year old who has wide feet based on the reviews. They didn't look wide, and they certainly didn't fit wide. The toe box on these is narrower than what you'd find on a shoe like Keens. Too bad too because my kid thought they were super cool.
