The leather was good quality, but unfortunately, these will be going back. The width just didn't accommodate my granddaughter's high instep. Her feet aren't necessarily wide, but her instep requires a wide size. I switched out the insole for the thinner choice, but it just didn't make that big of a difference. I loved that they were real leather and had metal buckles instead of hook and loop closures. Velcro makes it easier for a 2 year old to put the shoes on, but it also snags tights terribly. Stride Rite had a wide patent shoe that was adorable.

I love these gold sandals on my 2 year old. The Velcro ankle strap is great for us in addition to the toe buckle to adjust for width. I recommend ordering a half size larger. I can see myself buying these every year. Last year I bought the San Sun brand. These are better.

My son has very wide size 7 toddler feet. Since these sandals are adjustable, I thought we would give them a try. The strap that goes over the ball of the foot was not wide enough to close around his foot at a size 8. The shoe itself was also shorter than other 8s we had just tried from Nike, Merrell, and Keen. I am tempted to order a 9 to see if they will fit because they are so cute, but I will definitely be returning this size.

One of the shoes was worn. It had no form to it and there was dirt inside the shoe with toe marks. Returned.

So cute in person and very good quality. Toe strap is cut for very narrow foot and is stiff as others have mentioned. Likewise seems short in the sole length—returned and will size up.

My daughter was constantly removing her velcro shoes so I decided to get her shoes that were harder to take off. Since she was 9 month old, we have been dressing her in FootMates. These shoes are sturdy and they have great arch support. I feel like her little feet are supported and that she is comfortable. She is now 2 1/2 and we still put these shoes on her, in addition to some velcro shoes. I can't recommend these shoes enough.

Very nice sandals. We usually buy a similar style sandal but I love that these have Velcro closures! My daughter has wide feet& the straps are adjustable to accommodate width. Very pretty, versatile for summer.

I think these ran half a size small and just a tiny bit more narrow than other shoes in this size. My 2.5 yr old daughter can still wiggle her foot in them on her own which is great and I love that they are waterproof!

This is the 4th pair of this style shoe my daughter has had. First time in the silver color. Love the color- will go with so many things. My daughter is 19 months and always picks these shoes from her closet to wear. They wear very well and can easily be passed down to someone else to wear with plenty of life in them. Well worth the price for a quality shoe.

I have found these shoes great for my granddaughter! Her mother had the same wide feet and I usually had to order 1/2 size larger. These are classic Mary Jane's that I always purchased for my daughter many years ago. Footmates includes another liner for wide feet. Love the fact that they continue to sell classic shoes!

this shoe looks great, but it was too small for my grand daughter. The 1.5 was out of stock so we had to order another style.

We love that it was a half size bigger so that she can grow into them. She’s still wearing them and we’ve received sooooo many compliments on them! She also loves walking around in them. I recommend these over regular kid sneakers. About to order the brown ones now!

Our daugther will graduate from VPK in May. These shoes will be perfect for this special occasion. They fit comfortable and plenty of room for a sock that is mandatory for this event.

I bought these shoes for my granddaughter and we both loved them. Unfortunately, the velcro closing has now failed and she has not yet outgrown the shoes. Disappointed, to say the least, particularly since they are expensive shoes.
