These boots are as adorable in person as they are in the photos. My 18 month daughter will be able to wear them with leggings all winter. Thinking of buying the next size up so she has a second pair when she outgrows the first. Agree with other reviews - definitely order a full size down. They run big.

They are so adorable and very well made! I love the Minnetonka brand, I actually got a pair of their moccasins after I got these in the mail. Great price too!!! Would definitely recommend for your little one!

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 these booties!! They do run a size bigger so order down! The only thing I dislike is that the zipper kept coming down.

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.

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.

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.

These are super cute. I have these for my 2 year old, as well as this pair and the tall version for my older daughter. Very soft, very good quality. The only slight complaint would be that the zippers don't always stay up, or go all the way up. But it's not a big deal.

As the other reviewers noted, these run enormous, so order a size down. They aren't the best made shoes for toddler feet - a little hard to get on correctly. But they are so cute. My 14 month old daughter wears the size 3 (she's a 4 or 4.5 in most other brands). She seems happy running around in them - they have nice rubber treads on the bottom which is great for outside. Overall, really cute and warm shoe, but not perfectly formed for a toddler foot.

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 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.

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.

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.

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!

I bought these shoes for my toddler girl in a size 6 because that is her normal size. They came very quickly and was excited for her to wear them! I should've read the other reviews because they were a size too big. I decided to keep the 6 and order the 5 as well which are still too big but she wears them anyways. When ordering these make sure you size down! Overall I love the shoes, the quality and the comfort of them!

The little one loves them. My only issue is the zipper that doesn't go all the way down, making it a tad bit difficult to get on.

Super cute. Speedy delivery! They do run a size bigger so order down. My 2 1/2 year old wears a size 6 but I ordered her a size 5 in these and they fit great. I wish the zipper came down just a tad more...it is sometimes a small struggle to get these on her feet. Also, the piece of leather attached to the zipper tends to break off too. I have the same boots for myself and the leather piece has fallen off of mine as well. Overall, I love Minnetonkas! Zappos is the best!

These boots are adorable on my 22 month old daughter. She loves them! They do run large, but she is petite for her age. The 5 fit great with room for her feet to grow through fall/winter. The soles have great traction for running too.

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.

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.)

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.

They are very adorable but they aren't true to size like if you were to buy them in an adult size. My 11 month old wears a 4, so I bought a 3/4 and they are huge on her feet.

These shoes are too cute! They run big so I ordered a size down. The only drawback is the zipper on one of the shoes will not stay up. It seems like the zipper is a little short for the boot.
