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.

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

Way too large. I want to love them, but I can't. My little one wears about a 5.5 and I bought a size 4 and there was still about 3/4" toe room. The shoes were also on the narrow side, so if your baby has chubs, this shoe is not for them.

These are the correct size but the zipper does not go down far enough to actually get our toddler's foot in the shoe. Impossible to get these on!

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.

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!

These shoes absolutely don't work for infants. I ordered 3 different sizes to try on my 7-month old (infant 1, 2, 3). Even though her footprint would have fit the size one, I couldn't push her foot past the boot shaft of the size 3 (and she has pretty skinny, little legs). My husband tried too; no go. They may work on a toddler, but the shape is completely wrong for a baby. Perhaps if the zipper went down farther, her foot would go in. As it stands, they make no sense for a pre-walker. Too bad. They're adorable.

I bought these for my 4 month old thinking they would be perfect because I have a adult pair and love them, but her foot won't even go in them I feel like if I wanted to get her foot all the way in I'd hurt her not to mention the zipper doesn't go all the way up. I'm very disappointed plus I can't return them because I purchased them before she was born

Super disappointed. They are hard to get on, very narrow, zipper doesn't stay up, ties for the zipper came off immediately. I really wanted to like these, but when my child runs around in them she ends up running on the back trim part with her heel because her foot won't sit proper on the foot soul. My child has a normal size foot. I originally got the infant 4 and switched for the 3 because it was so large. It was a waste of money because she can't wear them and walk.

Brands I'd also recommend: for kids the simple kids was brilliant.
