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.

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.

I was surprised with all the reviews that said these ran one size to big. I found that they were true to size for my 2 1/2 year old. They are darling boots BUT the zipper doesn't stay closed ever. It's pretty annoying having to pull it up every 10 minutes so i just stopped trying....

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.

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.

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 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 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.

These boots are definitely cute, but not entirely practical. I ordered down a size, as other reviewers suggested, and it was quite a task to get them on my daughters feet. I ended up sending them back for her normal size, and the new size is much easier to get get on. However, she has a little too much room in the toe area, and she can pull them off easily if she wants to and has a harder time walking. Overall, they are cute shoes, we have received many compliments on them, but they are not my "go to" pair simply because they are kind of a pain.

These moccasin booties are adorable in my toddler. She finds them comfortable and they look super cute with tights and dresses. However, the zipper on the side doesn't stay up well on either shoe.

Super cute product. However, they are extremely hard to get on. They don't zip down all of the way, and I found it hard to get on my toddler's foot. I had to return them. :(

They are beautiful but the zippers go down all the time. I put a velcro that solved the problem, but I wouldn't buy them again.

Super cute, but they do run at least a full size too big, and I can't get the zippers to stay up. They end up coming unzipped and falling off my daughter's feet :(

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!

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.

These boots run a full size too big. Looked adorable on. Not good quality as zipper keeps Opening - got dirty very quick - doesn't clean well and stitching on side starting to open after 4-5 times wearing.

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.

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.

These boot run EXTREMELY large. I purchased size 4s for my 13 month old and they look like they will not fit her until she goes to kindergarten! Returning ASAP.

These shoes are super cute however I will always choose comfort over style especially for my daughter who just learned to walk. She is great at walking and running but when she wears these shoes she is off balance and falling/stumbling into everything. I think it's due to the fact that the shoes' zipper doesn't zip all the way up.

Brands I'd also recommend: Stride Rite, New Balance
