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.

Love these. I was looking for a shoe that would stay ON. These are great because my girl can't take them off and they don't fall off while she is walking or when I am carrying her. The velcro is in the back under-the tassels so she can't get it off. Another thing I lvoe about these shoes is that they are stylish without having to pay for expencive mocs. The homemade ones are cute but these are nicer because instead of just a plain leather soal, these have a small pad/cushion under the foot to help protect the baby's feet while they are at the park or on the gravel. (Not good for the rain though). Well, made, good quality. I will be buyig the next size up when she grows out these. Speaking of size, follow the size charts from Minnetonka. I got my little year old girl a size 1 (In other shoe siezes she is just slightly small for a size). As with all shoes, sizes vary between brands. Just keep that in mind.

These are very cute on my little boy! They run very big. A size 2 looked like it would fit a toddler. My son is 7 months with feet that are average or maybe slightly small. A size 1 was perfect with a little room to wear for maybe a few months more.

I got these for my son's cute chubby feet and they had they were slightly bigger in size, but it's fine with me, baby feet grow non-stop. They are easy to put on and are too cute for words! I love Minnetonka! I wear them as well, and have no cons!

Am so in love with these shoes. Moccasins are all I've ever put my little boy in and these are by far my all time favs. They go with everything are very soft and very warm. If I had to say something bad about them, I'd say that they run big, so don't be afraid to order a size smaller. I didn't and ended up they ended up being to big, so I've set those pair back till he's grown in them and ordered another pair he can wear now.

Love these! Easy to get on and off but stay on well. We always get compliments on them. They definitely run big but leaves room to grow through the winter. I bought the size one for my 6 month old.

I love these! They're adorable and well-made. They seem fairly true to size to me. Others reported that they were huge, but I ordered my daughter's regular size (because the smaller size was out of stock), and I'm glad that I did. They're very slightly too big, but definitely still wearable, and I like that they allow room to grow.

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".

These shoes are SO CUTE! I purchased them for my two year old. Every time we go out we get compliments on how cute they are. They DO come one size larger than what your child will normally wear. So, make sure to measure your child's foot according to the size chart or just go ahead and order one size larger than usual. My only complaint is that the right shoe does not fit my daughter's foot well. I think it is because the velcro is on the back of the shoe, so it does not fit as tightly as I would like. Otherwise, great product. And I actually ordered some in my size b/c they look so comfortable!

Love these booties and my little one gets so many compliments when she wears them. I do agree they run huge, I ordered two sizes down from my baby's normal size (size 2 for a 12 month old with small-ish feet). For whatever reason, the left one doesn't say on too well. I'm not sure if that has to do with the design of the shoe or my daughter's foot, but I do have to keep an eye on it so we don't lose one. There is a rather large amount of padding in the sole, which I will probably remove once my baby starts walking.

I bought these for my daughter in place of another style of Minnetonka moccasin that did not work for her feet. They seem to run large - my 9 month old daughter who has tiny feet could still wear a size 1 with room to grow! She has a fat instep and a narrow heel, so it's difficult to find shoes to fit her. These will do for the event we are attending this weekend, but she has to wear them with thick socks and I have to pull the velcro closure tab all the way over as far as it will go to keep her from kicking them off / slipping her feet out. The back opening is a good choice if your baby or child curls their toes trying to put shoes on from the top.

These booties are adorable and super easy to put on my squirmy guy. But they are way too big. I ordered a size three for my 5 month old because that's what he wears in almost every other shoe...I am returning them for a size two. The shoes are so cute and look very well made with a solid bottom insert. Probably decent for first walkers even. I love them and am very thankful that they have the size two in the tan color now.

I love the look of these shoes. However, they just do not stay on my daughter's feet. She's worn these pre-walking and now that she's walking and it hasn't made any difference. They're adorable, but just aren't tight enough on her foot to stay on -- even with the correct size.

These are so adorable, however they run extremely big. I ordered my daughters normal size and they are so huge on her. I am keeping them bc they are sold out of the smaller size.

These are adorable, but the velcro came unglued from one of the shoes almost immediately! They're not very well made. They also seem to be pretty big on her. She's 6 months old and has outgrown size 1 in every other brand, but still doesn't properly fit into these.

I ordered a size down based on reviews. This bootie is so adorable. Unfortunately, although the foot length fit well, baby was able to slip his heel right out and the shoes came right off. So, have to return and find shoes that stay on the feet! High style points, low fit points.

HUGE! I used the size guide to determine which infant size to buy for my daughter and either the size guide for this product is incorrect or these shoes are completely off. Unfortunately, I had to send back. They are adorable though but will just have to wait until she is bigger.

I love the style, we get compliments wherever we go. The only draw back is that since they are too big on her the shoes are always falling off. I tighten the velcro as much as I can, but it does not guarantee proper fit.

I totally agree with everyone else there are beyond way too big for my daughter. She is 14 months old that wear a size 3 infant shoe. So I order a 4 not knowing. When I opened the box I pulled out clown shoes. So I am doing an even exchange for a size 3 and I am hoping that they fit. Please, I do not want to keep returning them for the rite size. I need them for a Christmas party.

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!
