I got these for my toddler daughter and they are fantastic. Really versatile and stylish for the fall and winter. Look really cute with dresses and leggings alike. Very happy with purchase. Good ankle support for a new walker/runner.

These shoes fit perfectly according to size and width. Very cute shoes! They can be worn as a dress or casual shoe. I love Footmates because they offer the wide width. I have purchased this brand of shoes for the past 4 years and will continue to buy them in the future. I would highly recommend them!

These shoes are cute, dont get me wrong! I personally ended up going with the other real leather sandals on Zappos. They run a little small, which isn't a problem if you anticipate it. Thank goodness for Zappos amazing policies! The straps and foot bed are also shiny, and the sole is gum colored (not bubble gum). ;)

I've been ordering this style of shoe for my daughter since she was one. Her feet are narrow, so I knew to order a half size smaller. I love this shoe and its durability.

Love the style and quality. Reason I gave it a 3 star review is the odor. Other reviewers also mentioned this and they are absolutely correct. I can smell it every time I enter the room. It is not overbearing, but definitely a deal breaker for me.

Purchased these shoes for 3 yo granddaughter for a classic finish to plaid skirt and knee socks. They were perfect! The shoes are well made and she loves them; this a child who hates to wears shoes. The compliments from other parents and grandparents was ever so nice to hear. Bottom line is the shoes are well made, fit as expected, comfortable and a perfect classic look. We will be purchasing these in the future to wear with her school uniform.

We LOVE these shoes. I read lots of reviews before buying them and we never experienced some of the issues listed. The velcro strap held strong over an entire year’s use, didn’t scuff, and they still are in good shape. She would still be wearing them if it weren’t for her feet growing. I would highly recommend these and am just about to purchase a bigger size for the new school year!

The first pair came and had such a strong chemical smell (smelled like a garlic clove) that after wearing once and having people notice the smell around us, I sent them back. Zappos was nice and sent another pair to see if they were any better. They were not! They smelled just as bad and we tried airing them out in the sun but it didn’t help. I returned them and ordered Stride Rite patent leather shoes that have no smell at all. Very sad because my child has worn Footmates since she was a baby and now I’m scared to ever try them again!

I ordered these for my granddaughter because they were so cute. She has now worn them for a week, and I'm so disappointed. The toe box on both shoes have collapsed. It feels like the toe box is made of cardboard. We have to put our fingers in the shoe and push the toes back up. I didn't expect such poor quality out of FootMates. Don't waste your money on these shoes.

I ordered a larger size, due to previous orders I have placed. They were really narrow in exact shoe size. So, I would advise to order at least half size up! These are the same shoes I wore as a kid and they have been traditionally passed down to my girls. Absolutely love these and always will!

These are lovely "church shoes" and are worn at least once a week. I have three girls who have all worn this style for the past three years. The lassies wear sandals during the summer and the FootMates Emma maryjane during fall, winter and spring. Each autumn, I purchase a new pair for the oldest and she passes the old pair down to her siblings.

Incredibly cute shoe. My kiddo wears Footmates almost exclusively and loves the fit. However we purchased these shoes just 13 days ago and the leather color has ripped off on the toe box from normal child play. This is the first Footmates that did this and very dissatisfied.

These were adorable on my grandson when he wore them as a ring bearer to his Auntie's wedding. They are a very nicely constructed shoe.
