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 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.

Brands I'd also recommend: Naturino, Ecco, Merrell

These boots are adorable and appear to be well made. Unfortunately, the sizing is peculiar. The consensus seems to be that they run a size large. Fine, order down. But the weird thing is the ankle: it is tiny! It is so tight on my baby's ankle (she is average size) that the zipper will not stay up. I have tried stretching them with no luck. Now I will have to take them to a cobbler or just give up and waste the money. In the end, it does not matter how cute they are if she cannot wear them!

I could not get my daughter's foot to slide in far enough for her to put her heel down, and the shoe was larger than her normal size.

I absolutely loved these boots. They are fashionable and very well made as far as "look" goes. However, I just could not get my daughter's foot in them. I had to return them.

I love the design, but the boot is very difficult to get on and zip up. The neck of the boot seems too narrow. My daughter is on the thin side and I could not zip these boots.

Runs a size large! They are not completely flat to the ground, they are really cute though! I had to return the size 5 toddler and re-order a 4.

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.

The quality of these shoes is amazing. I used this style to create a Native American dancing shoe for my granddaughter who is two years old. It is sturdy, cute and comfortable. Thank you.

B/c of the reviews I first ordered the size 3 which goes info infant sizes but it was so small I couldn't get my daughters foot in. So I went up to a 4 and it's huge. But it's fine b/c she can grow into them. But are hard to zip over her chubby calves. They are very cute though!
