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!

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!

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".

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 are absolutely adorable! My 2 year old daughter wears them all the time and they look great with leggings and dresses. As many reviewers noted, they run almost a size larger than marked. I sized down and they fit her great.

Zappos seriously has the best customer service I've ever experienced. There was a situation with a pair of My sons previously purchased moccasins where one of the suede tassels tore off and I called just to simply see if I could exchange them. Zappos sent me a complete new pair of shoes, free next day shipping plus a $15 off my next purchase coupon and told me to simply disregard the damaged shoes. Not only did I receive that, I checked the mailbox yesterday and received this hand written card from the customer service rep Christina who assisted me. I was blown away lol I know how mushy that sounds but to me it speaks volumes of what their company stands for. These actually run a little big, my little guy has a lot of room in them but we're gonna save them until he grows into them.

As the other reviewers stated, these shoes are way bigger than the sizes might indicate. I bought these for my daughter to wear this winter/spring, but they won't fit 'til next fall. So...they look comfortable and like they'd wear well, but all I can say is that they are huge!

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.

Just as cute as picture! Considering they are a lot cheaper than the popular moccasin sold, I didn't feel as guilty buying these for my sweetie's fast growing feet. Pros: Cost, cuteness, versatility (go with everything), relatively easy to put on. Cons: First couple of wears the leather "sheds", so avoid dark colors, or you will see brown bits of leather all over, and like most baby shoes -- they are often kicked off. Note: They run a size big. I had to return for a smaller size.

Like all the other reviews say these come huge. My daughter is between a size 2 and 3 but I got a size 1 in these and they are still a bit big. But they are simply adorable and so well made. They are worth the hassle in sizing.

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.
