My seven year old daughter loved these boots at first. The boots are adorable and stylish, and the leather is very soft. I had seen reviews on various sites that mentioned how cheaply made these boots were (in both the adult and child sizes), but I was hoping that we would be among the lucky purchasers who had no such problems. (I also assumed that, even if the quality was subpar, it would not matter much for kids' boots - as I assumed my daughter would outgrow the boots long before any problems arose.) Unfortunately, the boots did not work out for us. Within a week, the zipper on one boot had broken at the top so that one sharp zipper tooth was sticking out causing numerous scratches (and one bloody cut) on my daughter's other leg as she walked. I am usually pretty handy at fixing things, but I was unable to fix this - I could not push the tooth back into place, remove it, or find a way to cover it. So my daughter got only a few wears out of the boots before they became unwearable. They have been sitting unworn in her closet now for almost three months. It is probably just a fluke, and we probably just got unlucky. I offered to try to exchange the boots for another pair in the same style, but my daughter does not want to risk cutting up her leg again - so we will look for something else. It is really a shame, because the style of the boots is great.

Love these. They feel like very nice, worn leather once you've broken them in, and I'd imagine they're a kids' counterpart of the original Troopa with the same quality (I don't own the adult Troopas). I'm a 3 or 4 kids (5 or 6 women's) and these fit very nicely! Been wearing them in NY-type autumn/winter. I'm 5'2" and they don't hit at an awkward length, very nice overall.

Brands I'd also recommend: Lucky Brand, Dolce Vita

I have attempted to purchase 5 different Steve Madden shoe styles. No matter the design, they are outrageously UNCOMFORTABLE. Like walking on concrete!

I bought a pair of these boots based on the reviews of others. I'm another person who wears size 5 women's shoe. I was hesitant at first because they are made for children, but they fit perfectly! I'm very pleased with them. I got compliments and no one ever suspected that they were from the children's section.

I love these boots! They run big though, and there are no half-sizes. I had to return the size 2, and buy a size 1, and to my surprise they fit great.

My very active daughter has had these on from the moment they came. No break in required, they were comfortable from day one. These are spendier than we usually do for her shoes but they're super cute and so far the quality seems good- if they last through the year with everyday use they'll be worth it.

I've been wanting to get the womens Troopa boots but the size was too big and the shaft was too long for me and my short height! So when I realized these boots came in kids sizes, I knew I had to have it! I am a size 5 in womens, and kids size 3 fits me perfectly. I love it. Staple for fall. I have a feeling I am going to be living in these shoes this fall! As always, thank you Zappos for the outstanding customer service & fastest shipping!

My daughter loves these! The only problem is that the laces are WAY too long! We can't figure out what we're supposed to do with the excess. Suggestions welcomed!

Our granddaughter received these boots for Christmas. She was so happy with them until the zipper pull came off. Not sure how to fix it. Any suggestions?

This was my child's 3rd pair of Steve Madden boots but the first black pair. We purchased this pair because the other pairs had held up so well. We loved the style and fit of this boot. However, the durability is less than desired for the price. Granted my child is rough on shoes but the toes and heels of these boots are completely destroyed, scoffed down to the whitish underlayer. They are completely unwearable after only having been worn 3 times! On the other hand, the brown boots have been worn dozens of times and only have some slight scuffs in the leather. I do not recommend these black boots for anything other than strictly dress-up. Save your money or buy brown. It's a shame because the black matched her outfits so much better.

These boots are cute out of the box. Then within two weeks, they looked like they had been worn for two years! They are not worth the money! They look like absolute junk after a few wears. Despite looking awful, my daughter loves them and still wears them (to my dismay).
