I absolutely love this shoe! My son is 19 months and wears a size 6 normally. I had read the other reviews about it running large, but I had no idea how large. I called the Minnetonka customer service center and asked for the measurements of each size for these booties. I then measured the bottom of my son's foot. He measured a size 4 for the bootie (his foot measured 5 1/2"). I ordered a 4 and it was perfect, especially to grow into for the remainder of the season! He loves them and wears them often. Here are the sizes and measurements for the booties. I would highly recommend doing this before purchasing a size. It will save time on returns. :) Size 3 = 5 1/4", 4 = 5 3/4", 5 = 6", and 6 = 6 1/4".

9 are "Critical"

Do not buy these boots. I bought these for my daughter and as the other reviews advised, I went down a whole size. They actually fit. But she could not wear them because she would end up walking on the velcro in the back of the shoe. The back of the shoe would actually slip under her heel as she walked and she would just kick them off. She was 2 years old at the time, I tried for months hoping that maybe as her foot grew and they got tighter on her (even though they weren't too big to begin with) that they would fit better but it never happened. I finally sold them on eBay for half the price. But these shoes just would not stay on her feet, with socks or without socks, they are very flimsy. Maybe the Front Strap Bootie style would be better, but my recommendation...don't buy this "velcro in the back" style!

Ordered these for my 9 month old. He currently wears a size 3 in most other shoes but after reading the reviews I ordered a 2. Fits perfect with a little room to grow. I love that they are soft sole and easy for him to practice walking in while being outside.

I absolutely love these! My five month old wears a size 2, reading all the other reviews and seeing that they run big I ordered her a size 1, they fit her great and have a little extra room to grow. Also, they stay on her active feet very well! I am super pleased and will be ordering more!

Huge! The other reviewers are not exaggerating! I measured my baby's foot and ordered about two sizes down (size 3), and the shoes are still enormous, about an entire inch of extra length. I'm now waiting for both the size 1 and 2 and hope at least one of them will fit him. (He's 11 months old and 30 inches tall; I don't have his foot measurement handy.) Before ordering I had called Minnetonka and gave them my baby's foot measurement, and asked if they could advise me on the size. They weren't able to; they would only tell me that size 1 is for up to 6 months, size 2 for 6-12 months, etc. I noted to them the reviews here, and they said they decided to make them larger so they would be easier to get on. And then some! They are lovely little booties, though, and nicely crafted. (I love Minnetonka and have worn their moccasins since my youth.) Note, however, that in addition to these infant boots running huge, they also have a thick spongy insert glued on the inside sole. I was expecting to have just the leather, and no insert, so my little man learning how to walk can fully feel the ground beneath him. If we keep a pair (if they fit), I will be removing the inserts.

These booties are great. So cute, so easy to put on with the back closure. Sole is soft but stiff - it's more substantive than just suede. Made in the Dominican Republic. They do run quite large, but just order smaller and be happy you can keep replacing them for a longer time! Baby loves them!

These are the best pre-walk shoes for baby. So easy to get on and they actually stay on. Sizing is off but it's worth it to get it right. Got so many complements when my little ones wore them.

Awesome shoes for little walkers! My 21 month old has been wearing these shoes for the past 6 months!! I bought him a size 4 which was a little big and he is just about to outgrow them. Super cute and comfy!! I am ordering him another pair.

We have bought 4 of these shoes for our now 2 year old. Love them our favorite shoes! They do run large but once you figure out the sizing the stay on our littles feet! I also have a pair so we have mama and me matching shoes.

These shoes are so cute I can barely stand it! I read previous reviews about sizing issues so I called Minnetonka for help. They had me measure the sole of a shoe that fits, and I placed an order based on that measurement using their sizing guide. It was perfect fit for my little girl, and no problems fitting her chubby feet. My only problem is that I was quickly reminded that suede isn't the most practical fabric for a toddler shoe. A few spots formed on the bottom just from her running around the house.

I bought these for my 17 month old who usually wears a 5/5½. I ordered the 5 and that was way too big, so I exchanged for a size 4 and they fit perfectly with a little room for her foot to grow even. They are very cute and comfortable and I just love the style!

Love them; appear just as shown as in the picture. They do run a size larger, but more time to grow into. They also stay on my baby's feet better than most shoes she has.
