I wish I liked these more than I do. We have the Moonwalk Black this season and the gray material is stretching out terribly. This is about our 4th pair of Plae shoes. I said after the last pair I'd never buy another, and I did. Mistake. Cute shoes. Overrated.

Durable and comfortable. I like the articulated sole so your kiddo can grip with his/her foot on uneven terrain. If your kiddo has high arches like mine, you will probably need to order longer straps, which swap out easily.

Did not hold up as they should for the price. After one month of wear, there are holes in the leather of the front of the shoe. Disappointing purchase.

Love these shoes. My daughter has medium - Widish feet and they fit perfect. She loves the shimmer in the black shoe. I was looking for a shoe for her that could be worn at formal events as well and this fits the bill! My 4 yr old loves them and can look nice and be active in them! Also, the quality of Plae shoes cannot be beat - worth every penny!!!

These shoes fit my toddler like a glove and he loves them. If I put a different pair on him he will go grab these and hand them to me to change them.

We love Plae shoes -- they're the only ones that have outlasted our kids growth. However, our most recent experience has been disappointing. Just two months after receiving these shoes, the stitching came out of one of the straps/tabs, making it unusable. I emailed Plae twice asking for a replacement to the tab, as I couldn't buy new tabs online given they are sold out in all relevant colors. I received no response to either email. Given this, we will think twice about buying Plae shoes in the future.

These are great but the straps can come loose and my daughter lost the strap of one shoe rendering them useless after a month of use....

My son is a toddler size 6 in most brands (Converse, See Kai Run, Stride Rite) but these were tight. They only fit if I remove the padded insole which defeats the purpose of having this brand of shoe.

My 4 year old refused to wear these and even cried saying that they hurt her feet and were uncomfortable around the back part of her ankle (near achilles). It is not very padded back there which I think contributed to the lack of comfort. I'm sad because they are so cute but were not comfortable for her to wear.

These came, fit great, easy to put on.... and about a month later ALL the stitching on the toes has come out, between the leather part and where the fabric tongue starts. Real minimal wear... bummed because of how much these cost. Otherwise I was looking forward to these at least lasting one season..

These are the fourth pair of Plae Ty shoes that I’ve purchased for my son. My daughter has had several pair as well. They are great quality shoes, and my kids reach for those first vs. any of their other shoes. They seem to be very comfortable, they are durable, and they last even longer than my kids growing out of them. My son has a high instep, so we just order XL tabs for his Ty shoes, and we are all set. We love them and highly recommend them.

It’s hard to tell about the fit and comfort in shoes for a 3 year old, but these are particularly cute and go well with any outfit!

I bought these for my 5 year old son. He needed something that was easy for him to get on and off by himself and something that is comfortable for his growing feet. The first thing he said when he put them on was that they were comfy. He's very picky about shoes and his feet are a bit wide as well, but he hasn't complained about anything on these shoes up to this point! I'd say that's a win! I'll definitely be buying more Plae shoes for him in the future!

I could not adequately express how much I LOVE these shoes! My kids are the worst with shoes. They sometimes drag their feet with wiggle bikes, or stopping on their regular bikes, and after two weeks of wear, their shoes typically look terrible (we are talking Keens, Nike, Under Armour, TEVA,etc) but it's been two weeks and while they don't look brand new, there are no scuffs or road marks to be found. I'm not sure what magic is at play hear, but PLAE, you have a customer for life!

My son loves these shoes. He wears them everyday. The toes’ plastic is starting to break. Since he wears them all the time, I think it is just normal wear and tear. They are easy for him to put on himself, and you will always know where your kid is in a crowd because of the bright colors.

We just got these and they seem well made. The colors are brighter in person and the toe box is definitely on the wider side. We ordered these along with a pair of Nike Free Runs. These seemed very stiff compared to the Nikes and ran a tad shorter in length. Nevertheless, my daughter chose these bc she loved the magenta color. Hopefully they will become less stiff over time.

My 3-yo really likes these, and I like the style quite a bit. These are our first plae shoes but will filter for them from now on.

We absolutely love these shoes! Bought them for my three year old son who is extremely active. They fit his feet super well and seem very durable. The Velcro is strong and doesn’t seem like it will deteriorate easily. AND they are so good-looking! Five stars for sure.

We've had the shoes for about a week. They are easy for my 4yr old to put on herself. She has a wide foot, so we've just switched to thinner socks when wearing these. Overall, the comfort and durability seems good.

My kiddo has been wearing these for a couple years. He’s got cute little bar of soap feet with a high instep. All the other shoes were impossible for him to put on when he was 2. Who really wants to sit and cram a wriggling kid’s feet into tight shoes? He can do this 100% independently (after reminding him 12 times). He calls them his “fast shoes” and when this pair arrived, he proceeded to sprint around the baseball field for 45 minutes. Both of my boys love the style and comfort. I love the durability. I buy one pair for each of them summer and winter. They hold up. No need to replace for holes or worn out Velcro. I’d rather spend the little bit of extra money on these 2x per year than replace the cheaper ones every other month. So glad Zappos is carrying these. Next day delivery meant that when I mom-failed and forgot to order them a couple weeks ago, I could say “they’ll be here tomorrow!” and mean it.

My kids have been in Plae shoes for 2 years. We order a winter pair and a summer pair. They’re really the only shoes they wear and they always hold up until my kids grow out of it. We used to buy cheaper shoes but they weren’t comfy, we’re impossible to put on themselves. This is the first time we’ve gotten this style. Now that my guy is a 1st grader, he wanted something different. He won’t take them off. They’re designed to be easy on and off. He’s thrilled.

Very durable and well constructed shoe. They don’t fit my daughter anymore and they have been worn a lot but look practically new. They were easy for her to get on as a 3-4 year old and great if you have a child whose feet are a little chunky or slightly broad.
