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.

When I found these online I was so excited...then after reading all of the reviews I was even more excited to order them. They do run big and I'm glad I ordered a size down. My daughter has plenty of toe room. Both the color and style are great. We get a lot of compliments! The only negative is that there is a learning curve with getting them on. Once they are on, the zippers don't always stay up. I know others have posted that they didn't have any problems with the zippers. Also, there are suede tassels on the zippers that my daughter tripped over so I took them off. I thought this is why the zippers didn't stay up. Overall, these are cute boots and we are glad to add them to our shoe collection!

These are very cute, but they ran really big lengthwise. We bought our child a five which is the normal size we purchase and are going to have to size down one, maybe even two. I'm not so sure we are going to reorder though because it was difficult to get her foot in the boot.

These shoes are adorable, but I couldn't zip them up my daughter's chubby ankles. And they were too big for her feet. So somehow they were both too small and too big. I'm going to try the Minnetonka Ankle Hi Tramper and hope that those fit better.

I bought a size 1 Infant for my daughter and could not even get her foot into the boot because the zipper does not open enough. It should extend to the arch point of the foot but just opens to the ankle. I thought they were really cute but was very disappointed. For a child this small, I shouldn't have to try to force her foot into any shoe. Sad because I was really looking forward to her wearing these.

I absolutely love these little boot mocs for my almost 2-yr old daughter. Incredibly cute and good quality. She is just starting to wear size 4 in most shoes, these ran large- the size 3 fits nicely with a good bit of room to grow. I would say they run one full size large. They are narrow and slim around the calves/ankles, which is wonderful for my daughter (In my experience, Minnetonka always runs narrow). She is very petite and unusually slim for her age, with narrow feet/legs. It is very hard for us to find shoes that fit her and I can understand how these probably wouldn't work for a lot of other toddlers, but for us these could not be more perfect. They seem well constructed and the leather is thick. No issues at all here with the zipper, probably because her legs are so small. These are my favorite pair of shoes for her and she loves them too, she was SO excited to get them and loves to wear them.

I love these little booties for my 17 month little girl. They are super cute, seem to wear well as she is all over the playground in them, and are very versatile, as she has worn them a few times with a dress. People always comment how much they love her booties! Please note: they run big so order a size down.

I had been debating on whether or not to order these for my just turned 2 year old based on other reviews. She wears a 6-7 in other shoes and I ended up ordering her a 5, they fit perfect with a little room to grow. They are easy to get on and off as well. I am so happy I decided to purchase these - we literally get compliments on them every day!

They are too cute and look great with pretty much any outfit. They do run big. So big I had to go down 2 sizes. Great quality and seem comfortable. My 2 year old daughter loves to wear them!

Love them! They go with everything. They couldn't be more adorable! Make sure your little wears socks with them especially at first because they gave my little a blister. Have to break them in I guess.

Adorable, but runs really big. Zappos made it easy to return for the correct size. The side zipper doesn't always stay up, but there's so little zipper there that it doesn't affect the fit.

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.

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 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.

So cute! Made well. I've heard the zipper won't stay up but I feel like that wouldn't change the fit of the shoe very much so I don't care. They look perfect with my daughter's fall wardrobe! They fit true to size with just the right amount of room to grow. I've held them up to all her other 6's and they're comparable, so I'm really not sure why everyone thinks they're so huge.
