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.

Super cute but have to wait to wear them. They're one full size too big. Order a size smaller than you normally would if you want them to fit.

I purchased this shoe for my daughter and the shoe size is WAY off. I ordered a size 5, and even though she is currently wearing a size 6 in other brands this shoe is still completely too big. I'm returning because I'm afraid that by the time her foot would be big enough for the shoe it will be warm weather. The style is super cute and it appears to be well made, but the sizing is completely off.

I bought size 3 for my one year old granddaughter who is on the petite side. They match her mom's boots. Surprisingly she keeps them on and they seem very comfortable. She has a ¼" in the toe but any smaller they would not go on. Originally I bought a 4 but they were way too big. They go on easily and will probably stretch out a little.

I cannot physically fit my 15 month old's feet inside of these - the way you have to put them in straight and then make the turn - maybe the design needs to unzip more on the sides? either way, I have to return them. Too hard to get/jam her feet in there and they are not too small.

These boots are adorable, and they are going to be perfect for a mild Winter. However, like most reviews have pointed out, the sizing is just off. I took the advice of the reviews and ordered a size down and they are way too small. These were meant to be a Christmas present, and now they are a Christmas return. My advice to anyone who wants to order once and get the sizing right: order their correct size and a size smaller, return the pair that does not fit. The sizing is that unreliable.

I love the color of these boots, which I bought for my almost 2 year old. I bought them large so they would fit her for a long time. It didn't take her long to untie the pull cord from the zipper, and quickly lose both of them. She is easily able to put these boots on herself, which is why I like boots for toddlers. The only negative I can think of is that the toes are showing wear quickly, as she sometimes crawls around on the ground.

These are very cute but not entirely easy to put on (with thick socks) even with the zipper. Also the zipper does not stay up. Even with rubber soles, these are still moccasins and wear like them.

Super cute but way too narrow for my little girl's feet. I couldn't even get them on her! She has the normal toddler chubby feet and these boots don't account for that! Sadly I will have to return.

These are the cutest boots! Very on trend this fall with the fringe. My daughter is a size 5. Based on other reviews I thought a size 5 in these would allow room to grow but they were huge. I exchanged for a size 4 which are great in length but the zipper struggles staying up because they are a little snug in the ankle area. Hoping they stretch a bit with wear. Hope this helps!

As others stated, couldn't even get baby's foot in because the zipper doesn't open all the way and the shoe isn't flexible enough to wriggle it in. Will try a size up to see if that helps (had gotten a 3 for my kid, as everyone said to go down a full size, but since she's normally a 4.5 I'll try a 4 and see if that works.)

These shoes are adorable! They do run large but with some thicker socks it shouldn't be a huge issue. She has only gotten to wear them twice but so far so good! They are a great addition to any outfit!

It's true- these are adorable! Not the best support for long-term wear, but stylish and comfortable for my toddler. Love the no-slip rubber sole and quality of the leather. Receive compliments everywhere we go. Taupe color is a tad yellower/darker than the image here online, but still a great color. Side zippers do not always stay up, but doesn't seem to bother my toddler.

Loved the moccasins for my grandson. He is 1 year old he is running around the house loving his shoes, fit him perfect. The soles have such a perfect grip so he doesn't fall or slide. They are adorable and will purchase another pair soon. Thank you so much!

I bought these for my daughter in brown and purple expecting to return one pair. I kept them both. They are so cute. They go with everything and have a nice sole for a relatively new walker.

I wanted to love these! I was looking for a suede boot for my 18 month old daughter and they were super cute. Like others have said, they appear to run big. However, my problem was with the zipper on the side. I couldn't even get my girl's foot in them! For some reason the zipper stops half way down the boot and you are forced to try and squeeze their feet into them. My daughter has small feet so I'm thinking if I had the issue then I'm sure others will as well. Unfortunately, we had to send these back.

These are so cute! Great quality! I went with the advice of others and ordered a size down, they do run big. The only complaint is they are so hard to get on and that's not fun when trying to put shoes on a toddler. I wish the zipper went down all the way to allow more room. We had the same issue with another pair of Minnetonka baby shoes, we were unable to get them on our daughters foot and she never wore them. This pair goes on but it's definitely a struggle, hoping they stretch or loosen up a little with wear.

I got these for my twins. They are adorable! The suede is so soft and the sole is flexible. Before I ordered them, I had the girls' feet measured at a local shoe store. They measured a 5½, but after reading reviews, I ordered a 5 since it was not even fall yet and I wanted them to fit through most of the winter. They were huge. So big that I did not even think that they would grow into them this winter. They run at least one size big - maybe even two. I will be ordering the size 4.

I read the reviews before buying these and I'm so glad I did. These run really big, my daughter is a size 6 so I bought a size 5 and she still has room to grow. Super cute, really well made.

My 11 month old has TINY feet so I ordered her a size 1. Unfortunately even though she has tiny feet she is an average size 11 month old so they wouldn't zip up at all without pinching her skin.

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.

These boots are adorable and if you're ever ordered Minnetonka boots before you know they're authentic in style. But the zipper falls down just a little when my daughter has them on, so I'm often pulling it back up. It's not enough to make them fall off or bother her, but it bothers me a little.
