I just wanted all parents to know this sandal runs a whole size larger than marked! We actually bought the sandal through a department store and tried them on. I was surprised we had to buy a size smaller! Overall, great sandal. :0)

I was so excited to buy my daughter these sandals since I grew up wearing them! However, I was very disappointed in the fit. The left shoe seemed to be crooked and my daughter kept pulling at them trying to rip them off. I ended up returning them.

Love these shoes!! This is the second year we have bought these for our kids. Soft leather, cute and comfortable. Order a size down, since they run big.

These are very cute. I also ordered the Sweetheart sandal by same brand name. The sole on this sandal is very flat and did not offer the same support for my toddler's foot.

A little annoying to put on with buckles, but daughter loves them. No slip. Good pair of shoes.

If you want your child actually to learn to buckle a real buckle instead of fastening the Velcro "hook and loop" closure (actually, it's just velcro), buy these awesome sandals. As far as I can tell, they're the only company that still uses real buckles on toddler sandals. We have an old pair of Stride-Rites from a niece and they are real buckles, but the new Stride Rites are Velcro too. In addition to real buckles, providing the opportunity for life skills (and cultivating patience in mama), they look good and fit great. We love 'em! On a side note, I don't actually object to Velcro, but feel that if a shoe company wants to use it for a child's shoe, don't put on the fake, decorative buckle. If for no other reason -- what does the fake buckle -- the useless buckle -- teach a child about aesthetics, form, and function? It's like buying fake books to decorate a bookcase. A shoe company like Livie and Luca uses Velcro fasteners too, but has a better understanding of beauty and function, and I think these concepts are important in toddler development.

Great shoe for an active little girl! Definitely order a size down, I ignored this advice and had to return for a smaller size. Our daughter loves these shoes. Not a single blister. Perfect!
