These sneakers are nice to walk in but does not offer much cushion support for my 5 year old. He injured his foot because of that during recess. They run small so had to order up a size & 1/2. Wish I could return them but he used them a few times before he injured his foot.

Feels 1/2 size smaller than marked. The 10.5 was similar to size 10 in other similar shoes we have had (Saucony and Kangaroos) so order up an additional 1/2 from what you were going to. Otherwise great quality.

Perfect shoes for my 7 year old boy who is skinny and active and loves red! Very light weight and comfortable. He's been wearing them for over a month now and never heard any complains.

My son says these make him really fast! We had tried another pair of Pumas before this style. Puma tends to run a little small and narrow, but these fit him just right. So if you have run into this sizing issue before, this is the style to buy.

These are a very durable easy on-easy off shoe. I bought them for my 5 year old son. He loves the color and says they are "super fast".

Got them for Nephew for Xmas and told him the white dots on the tread make him run faster, and he loved them.

Awesome shoes with cool retro style. Can't say enough about the amazing service at Zappos. If you have not ordered anything from them I highly recommend it. Pumas have the most flexible sole of any kids shoes. This is the only brand of shoes both of my girls (2 and 4) have ever worn. Not sure about size compared to other brands.

My five year old has now had these shoes for three months. He has worn them every day since school started. They are holding up well - still look nice and nothing is ripping or coming loose. The size seemed fine, he is wearing the 12½ which is normal for him. He loves the shoes and I get a lot of comments on how cute he is walking around in those bright red Pumas. I wish the Velcro was placed better. The soft fabric part is over too far and is being eaten up by the hook part. I have to keep cleaning it and on one shoe I even had to cut the chewed up fabric off.

They run big but only half a size. Compared to other sneakers they are very light and not heavily padded; this may account for people thinking they are bigger than they are. They are not skate shoes and don't have the big thick tongue or the heavy soles. Size up half a size, no more. Easy on off, light, all good.

Great shoe -- fun color, very comfortable. Runs small. Had to go up a whole size for my 7 year old. Why would that happen with established brand like Puma? But still great shoe if you go up in size.

My 5 year old says he loves these shoes - and he is picky. If the shoe doesn't feel exactly right on his foot, he won't wear it. Just one thing - the shoe says the insert is a special size check on the shoe but my son's toes go to the 'too big for this shoe' mark and the shoes aren't too small for him. Weird.

For whatever reason, this shoe appears to run incredibly small. My son is a size 13 in other shoes, but I remembered in Pumas he had tried on in a store he was more like a 1. But this size 1 was way too small! I don't even think a 2 would be big enough. Super cute shoe otherwise -- just FYI.

My little guy absolutely loves these shoes. My only complaint is the velcro flaps are a little long so they kind of hang over the end. Very cool looking shoes.

So cute, but too narrow. Unless you have a kid with a really narrow fit, the velcro will be too short, and the fit likely too tight. Darn shame, because these were so cute.

Brands I'd also recommend: saucony, adidas
