We are really impressed with Plae shoes for our kids, overall. This style with the mesh seems very durable and my five year old can do all the outdoor stuff he loves and they have held up to his activities very well. This is our 3rd pair for him and he loves the fun color combinations. My husband loves that they are AFO friendly. That being said, the pair we are replacing with these new ones were a bit of a disappointment. They had significantly more leather/suede (or a suede-like material) on the sides (they were a blue camo) and the inside areas just below the big toes started to rip along the seam very quickly. Since it didn't happen with the 1st pair I decided to try again with new ones that were closer to the ones we had originally purchased and loved. And, since he's five, I let him wear the ones with the compromised seams for quite a while. When I could finally see sock I knew it was time to replace them! The pair that ripped were purchased directly from Plae, not Zappos, and I regret buying from the company direct because I'm sure that Zappos would have stood by their product and resolved the issue. When I contacted Plae customer service I never heard back.

This the third pair I have purchased for my son and daughter. Because they have wide feet, it limits the brands we have to choose from. The recommendation from Plae is that if your child has a wide foot, just buy half a size larger. This is one the pair of shoes I can get away with buying one whole size larger without them tripping over themselves, so we get a lot of life out of them. The nice thing about these shoes are that if they outgrow the tabs before the shoe (which is what was happening with Stride Rite and Saucony), you can just buy larger tabs for about $5. My kids will get about six months of wear since they only wear them to school.

I fell in love with the yellow color, but my kid preferred the grey. Still cute though. Looks like the insoles come out in 2 pieces so you can adjust the sizing. They were a bit stiff at first, but after some breaking in - they seem really comfy on him. Hard to tell, though, as the kid doesn't really say much.

I could not be any happier. The shoes are wonderful. I wish my sons foot grew little slower. We only got seven months of use. These were his primary shoes. They are easy enough for a two-year-old to put on them selves. I really like how wide they open. They are more flexible than most of the children shoe brands which is great for children learning how to walk and run. They are more grippy than most shoes. It is very helpful for climbing in the park. The grey does not show much dirt and they are easy to wipe down. The only negative that I could say is during sandbox play they do hold a good bit of sand in the line grips. It is easy enough to get out with a good bend and shake.

As always, PLAE and Zappos do not disappoint. The three things we look for in shoes - flexible toe bend, well-fitting heel cup, and size - all were met with this great pair of stylish shoes.

I am thankful that Zappo sells the shoes I need. You are 100% easier to work with compared to the “Parent Company “ of these shoes. You have the brands needed and great shipping!

They fit my 19 month old granddaughter perfectly. She’s not toe tripping in them, toe doesn’t catch when she brings her foot forward. They are not stiff, they’re flexible under the ball of her feet, they give her heel support. Well made and fun in color design

This is my daughter’s third pair of Plae shoes. She normally wears a 9 but we order 9.5 because they run a little narrow. She love these boots!

My daughter has freakishly long narrow feet and she’s worn the same pair of these for almost a year straight. Great for p.e. and for dressing up. Incredible versatility, comfort and quality. And they’re easy to put on and cute to boot.

I bought these for my son and he loves them. They have a comfortable toe box and are stylish enough to be used as a dress shoe. He does wear them for any occasion as well. He has also has owned other Plaes in the past and they have all been of great quality. Just recently found out they make Plaes for adults but not sold here, yet (wink wink).

These shoes fit true to size, however they started irritating my daughter’s ankle after months of wear. Shoes held up well, but overall would probably look for another brand for the price since they bothered her ankle.

My son loves these shoes and they fit him perfectly. They are also really easy for him to put on and take off which is a huge plus for his parents as he doesn’t tie shoes very well yet. Will def buy again.

We bought these shoes for our super early walker. He needed something with an actual sole for outdoor terrains as the soft soled Robeez just weren't able to handle it. They are very easy to put on and they stay bnb on well considering how fat his feet are. The tread comes up and over the toe which is nice and I think will maintain the shoes wear and tear over time. We decided on Plae shoes after having tried at least 3 other brands.
