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 are the cutest ever! I love the Velcro backing and tab for easy on/off! The fringe does a great job at covering the Velcro in the back also!

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.

These are so cute! I have two one year old boys and they both adore their Mocs! Two moms I know have gotten them after seeing my kiddos. The only complaint I have is that they can easily get them off themselves, which can be problematic when you are out and about. Also be sure to get one size down from what your child would normally wear.

Brands I'd also recommend: Minnetonka

These little shoes are amazing!!! Not only do they look adorable, but they are so easy to get on and that is normally a problem for my little guy since he has thick feet. These are the only boots that open all the way in the back and once shut, they stay closed. I couldn't be happier with the quality and the cushioned sole. They run big, so pre-measure your babies foot before ordering. Great buy!!

I don't understand y everyone is saying that these shoes run big because my baby boy wears a size 4 in all shoes. I ordered a size 3 in the moccasin bc of the reviews and they fit good but were a tad too SMALL. I'm ordering a size 4 now.

Very cute! We have gotten many compliments on these shoes. They do run very big. Definitely order a whole size smaller. My daughter wears a 3 or 4 and had to have a size 2 in this shoe.

Very cute! My daughter wears a size 5 ordered a 4 and fits great with room to grow. A little tough to get on maybe if your baby has extra wide feet I would do the ones with the Velcro on the front. Soles are nice and soft as she is learning to walk! Her white socks are now brown from the dye but still happy with them.

These are so cute! They definitely run big - I would say my baby usually wears a size 2-3 and the size 1s fit her well. But as long as you get the right size they are adorable!

I ordered these in a 3M and 4M. As usual, Zappos complete service was upstanding. Keeping the 3M. They fit my little chubby footed 1 yr old granddaughter. These stay on her feet, as they have velcro at the back and come up enough on her ankle to keep them secure.

These are beautifully crafted booties. I love them just wish the velcro in the back was a zipper. Sometimes the booties slide down in the back. As for the sizing. My 15 month old girl is usually a 5-6 in other shoes. The 4 was a perfect fit with a little room to grow into. Overall love them! And I can't say enough about Zappos service and super fast shipping! Great!
