My 9-year old son picked these out and he's pretty happy with them. I had hoped that the laces would make it quicker and easier for him to get them on/off, but I don't think they're any faster than regular laces. And he ends up with a lot of excess lacing that he ends up weaving through the laces - making it that much tougher to loosen them up later. I think we'll go with regular laces next time. He does really like the look of them and, once he gets them on, they work well.

My son enjoyed these shoes. Mothers beware, the toggle drags and bounces on the floor which poses a danger when running. The toggle broke within 4 weeks. I suggest picking a different non tie shoe.

Excellent Product! My only comment would be that the Salomon system is a little bit difficult for a 5 years old boy.

Came back to Zappos to buy a second pair of these shoes because my 9 year old outgrew the first pair. First time he actually outgrew shoes without wearing them out first. To the critics who say the toggle is too long - there is a pocket at the top of the tongue for stuffing the extra length of the shoelaces after cinching. I think this is a brilliant design!

We love Salomons. My 7 year old loves to wear them hiking or just around town. Very comfortable for him!

My son loves these shoes. This is our second pair and with no need to tie, they are perfect. I have been wearing Salomons for years. They are great shoes!

Great shoes! Salomon shoes for kids were a bit more than I wanted to pay for my 9 yr old, but they are good quality and will last as long as he can keep track of them.

I bought these for my nine year old. When I opened the box his immediate response was "awesome!" It is a very good looking sneaker with a pretty cool color. My son said it was really comfortable and wanted to wear it immediately. It appears to be well made and has a really good fit. I recommend!

My son loves these shoes. They look great! The only thing I would say is that the tie mechanism is a little difficult for him to do and he's 6.

My middle schooler needed an easy on/off shoe that didn't look too "toddlerish" with velcro. The Kids XA Pro 2 seemed to be the answer! But, after 1 month of every day school use (from a kid who is NOT hard on shoes) the stitching is coming apart and there are holes in the mesh part that holds the bungee lace! I think the shoe will come apart after another month and it's a shame because it is a nice looking shoe.

I purchased the North Face Betasso, Salomon Kids XA & Teva Charge WP K's for my son to choose from. Between the 3 styles the Salomons were clearly less quality. The elastic ties are flimsy and the toggle hard to adjust. The shoes had glue on the seams. The North Face Betasso are great and equal quality to the Teva's. (if you order Teva's order one size bigger than your regular shoe size) between the three it is a close tie between Teva's and North Face. The Teva's shoe is a bit more streamline where as the north face are a bit more clunky. Don't waste your time or money on the Salomons they truly do not even compared to their competitors. But, if the Salomon's are on sale for around half this price that would be a purchase you can feel good about. But, definitely not worth the price.

Brands I'd also recommend: Keen, north face, Teva's

Poorly made for such a nice looking and comfortable shoe! The toggle cords are thin and long so there is a lot of excess. There is a mesh pocket on the tongue flap of the shoe for excess cord (which you can't see from the picture) but it got holes in the mesh within weeks of wearing it. After 3 months of everyday use the stitching on the shoe is coming apart. I am returning these and got the Teva Churn which is very similar looking to this shoe, has a much sturdier cord and toggle, and hasn't fallen apart.

Brands I'd also recommend: Teva Churn
