These are super cute... as cute as they look! They do run a size large so order down. No trouble with the zippers or anything else, just adorable!

I do not usually write bad reviews, but these are so bad, I think I better write one. I was in love with these booties online and when they arrived too. They fit terrible, though. It is too late for me to return them, since they are baby shoes I waited to see if they would fit better if her feet grew a little. They did not. The toe box is bulky so they get a dent right behind the toes, giving them a clown-feet look. The heel is very very rounded, so they sort-of rock instead of giving good, flat contact with the floor. The zippers are short, and do not stay up. At this point I have tried to make them work and they cannot be returned since she has worn them a few times. Bummer. I would give zero stars if I could.

I had to order these 3 times to get the right size and when I finally did my daughter would scream every time I would put them on her. Save yourself the headache - don't get them.

So overly disappointed in these boots! I bought them for my 15 month old and based on reviews, ordered two sizes since every comment seemed to say they were sized incorrectly. They are really cute and had excellent tread on the bottom which is great for little walkers. But...the way these boots are constructed, we couldn't even get them on her feet! There's literally no give to the material and the zippers don't zip down enough to create an opening for the foot. I'm curious how anyone was able to get these on a toddler's foot!

Super cute boot and so stylish, but as other reviewers have stated, they were impossible to get on my chubby-footed 2 year old. They ran over a size larger for my daughter. Really wanted these to work out so she and my older child would match. Bummer!

Though these shoes are SUPER cute and a great quality. They are not very good for kids. They run a full 1 size big and are not a good fit. The foot part fits once you can finally get them on, but getting my childs foot into them is really difficult. The high top part is so tight to maneuver the foot through. I definitely would have returned them if she hadn't stepped outside with them. Getting them on and off a toddler is not a fun process.

I loved this shoes for the way they looked but they are not too good for a kid that just starts to walk...she would walk with her foot on the side. I kept them but i don't like them.

Such a cute little bootie! It looks amazing with almost anything. My only complaint is about the zipper. It doesn't like to zip up on my daughter's fat little baby legs, ha. And when I manage to get it up, it doesn't like to stay up. The shoes stay on even if they aren't zipped though. And as other reviewers said, definitely go down a size, they're super long!

These are the correct size but the zipper does not go down far enough to actually get our toddler's foot in the shoe. Impossible to get these on!

These little booties are adorable. I read reviews before purchasing to go down a size and its correct. Boots this size and style are hard to find for a beginning walker. My daughter walks great in these. Seems to be comfortable. Only downfall for me is the zip up on the inner part. I dont know if my daughter's ankles are considered chubby but the zipper does not zip up and stay up.

I ordered these for my 15 month old...she wears size 5 but because of the reviews saying they run big I ordered size 4 and there super huge. Maybe ordering 2 sizes down will work. Other than that, really cute and I'm still keeping them; she will eventually fit in them.

Absolutely LOVE these boots!! My toddler wears a size 7 (her feet measure about 5.5 inches) and I bought her a size 6. Even though I sized down a full size smaller than her normal size they were still way too big! A size 5 would of been a perfect size (mind you she has narrow feet so size accordingly) but these shoes are not meant for those babies with chubby little legs! And another thing, the zipper will most likely go down a lot if you don't remove the tassel it comes with because they tend to rub together or get stepped on when children walk/run, which causes the zipper to go down. Over all they are well worth the price!

I got the right size for my daughter but it fit too big so I got a smaller size which was still too big. They are very cute shoes, but not very practical for toddlers. They got messy really quickly.

I am so disappointed. These are adorable and are such a decent price. I love that they have a flexible sole, yet have traction. I ordered them, ignoring comments from friends and reviews about ill fit. I ordered a 5 and they were way too big. I could not even get my daughter's feet all of the way in the booties because they were so narrow. I returned them, totally anticipating ordering a smaller size but that was unavailable. I tried a size 4 on my daughter in a local store and could not get my daughter's heels all of the way down into the booties. They were way too narrow for chubby little toddler ankles. You would think that Minnetonka would do something about the fit, as many have complained.

Bad fit overall, very disappointed- super cute however, foot on my 19 month old was a struggle to on and once on there was way too much room in foot area, zipper was hard to zip and tight in that area.

Originally ordered these on my daughter's usual size. They were way too long. Exchanged for 1 size down and they were so difficult to get on her feet! Kept them anyway and just put them on her (with a struggle) barefoot or with footless tights, just because they're so darn cute! They really need to offer these in half sizes, in my opinion. Sizing is off.

These are adorable, but impossible to put my childs foot into. The leather is too "sturdy" to allow for the foot to enter. I'm not willing to work this hard for a cute pair of shoes, or risk my daughters ankles. Too bad...so cute.

So cute but I can't get it on my daughter's foot even though the shoe itself is actually a bit big. Wish the zipper went lower or were placed differently. I've ordered it in two sizes and neither worked.

Great looking boot, but the leather on the zipper immediately came off. Also not the easiest to clean for something that attracts so much dirt. Maybe our outdoor toddler may be a bit energetic, but after one play session outdoors the boots are no longer great for a dress up occasion.

I love these Minnetonka boots. They are super cute. However, for the smaller sizes 1, and 2, they shouldn't make them with the rubber sole. It makes the shoes too heavy and they will absolutely not stay on my daughters feet. She has a size 1 and they fit great, but fall off as soon as I pick her up. They have become pointless.

These boots are cute but my daughter literally could not walk in them. Other reviewers have noted that they have no arch support, but I also found that they leather was so soft that they collapsed in the ankle, which caused the foot bed to slip to the side. As a result, she ended up walking on the inner side of the shoe, rather than the foot bed (and this was after only wearing them for an hour). They have been returned.

Absolutely adorable! They do run very, very big--we ended up going TWO sizes smaller than usual. But, the zipper is virtually useless. It won't stay up no matter what we do, so the shoes are more decorative than anything else.

I love these, so does my 2-year-old. They are a bit too big for her even though I did buy 1 size smaller as I read that they run big, but they work, hopefully they fit till next spring! I try not to wear them on her when it's wet outside, but these shoes have been outside a lot, in mud plays as well, and they still look good. I did treat them with leather spray before first use, maybe it helped. Only minus is that zippers don't go all the way up. But still, did I say, I love these? I do.
