Adorable shoe for my 4.75 year old. She LOVES them. She danced in them when she put them on. We had to size up. It seemed to me these run 1/2 size small. They come with 2 laces, black and white, but the white ones were 2 inches longer. Strange. We prefer the black anyway. These seem quite durable. I sprayed with leather protect product to get more water repellent and color protection.

These are a nice, classic looking saddle. Unfortunately, zappos was out of my size and the size above and below did not work. These shoes are not expensive, so one cannot expect the highest of quality, but, for the price they are good. I found the tongue to be too thick, but everything else was good.

These shoes are heavy. My son tried them on and did it care for them. He said they were comfortable but they were too big in heel. He does have a narrow heel, but he also noticed the weight of the shoe.

I wore these in school. They take a bit to break in because they're made well. I bought them again 20 years later because they go well w/ jeans and sweaters?? feeling nostalgic. I wear them to work alot and always get compliments.

Didn’t even try them on. The insole was peeling out of both shoes and so they will be returned.

This show was very stiff and looked more like plastic than leather. My child said they hurt at the heel, so we are returning.

I have had so many folks come up to me and tell me they used to wear these in high school. My reply is that school is in session so buy yourself these shoes! We all are in our seventies!!!

Solid shoe to last the school year! My daughter insists on these shoes versus the other brands which I can get much cheaper. However, year after year they hold up very well and last the entire school year so I don’t mind spending the money.

This is an amazing school shoe. I was so happy to find this shoe for my daughter. First of all, the fit is wonderful because they have varying widths available. Being able to purchase a wide width is SO helpful. Second, the black leather holds up so nicely all year long. It doesn't look all scuffed up--it looks new and fresh even after a full year of school days and recesses. Before finding this show, I was using a different shoe that would look ragged and worn out before the end of the school year. Also, our previous shoe had weird seams on the top of the shoe that made it look less "clean" and elegant--the seams were too casual and athletic-shoe-looking. This show has a much more clean-looking top. The velcro strap has held up totally. This really is an amazing shoe. Now my daughter is in middle school and she wants a more fancy, fashionable shoe--like ladies flats. I'm grieving it because I know the School Issue Prodigy would hold up so much better and be so much less costly than a ladies flat shoe. Oh well....kids have to grow up. Enjoy it while it lasts!

My son has worn this brand of shoe to school for three years in a row. Every fall he has to get used to wearing them - they are leather so need to be broken in and he uses a shoe horn to put them on. We need wide sizes in our family and he has always been comfortable in these. They are sturdy; last the whole school year. If his feet weren't growing he would still be able to wear his old pair. The shoelaces are the "dress" kind that are thin and round. When he was younger we got new laces because they weren't long enough for him to tie a double knot. Bottom line - every year when I ask him he says, "Yeah get the same shoes."

i ordered an 8.5 but they felt little bit too narrow. Also, had some issue at the heal _rough leather. So, I ordered a 9 and also in Wide width. I have to keep stretching the right foot as it is too narrow, still. I could have used the 8.5 in length but needed the half size up for greater with. I am using a leather softener on the shoe as they are stiff and hard, and am also using a shoe stretcher. The shoe hopefully will work once i take care of these issues. The shoe itself is very nice and i feel it will be a fun switch from my usual boots.

Perfect shoe for my daughter for back to school. She is only in 4th grade, but is wearing ladies' sizes now, so I loved that I could find a shoe that is age appropriate in her size.

This is the 3rd year my son has chosen this brand and style. They look great and wear well the whole school year even through the snow and rain. They offer wide width which is great.

I needed boy’s dress shoes in a wide width for my sons. I bought the Hush Puppies, Florsheim Kids, and School Issue to compare (the only options in wide width). Both boys picked the Hush Puppies as most comfortable. The insole has great cushioning. The Florsheim was a close second choice. The School Issue had a very firm insole with minimal cushioning, and the leather looked plasticky.

I have used Zappos since inception, and I NEVER write reviews. We were away all summer and arrived back home the day before school started. We went to the local school shoe store for my daughter, and they were completely out of the required uniform shoe, and said it would take 10-14 days to order and arrive. We got in the car, checked Zappos, and there was the exact shoe arriving tomorrow-AMAZING!!! They arrived in the nick of time (one day shipping that we didn't gave to pay extra for), and they are PERFECT!!! Bravo Zappos! You rock as usual!! Sorry it took me soooo long to say it!! Lifesaver!

My daughter usually does not require a wide width shoe. She is between an 11-12 depending on the brand. I ordered an 11.5 which fits fine in the length she has room in the toes to grow a little. However on the left shoe she felt it was painful on her baby toe. I will return for a wide width. I would recommend ordering the wide width if your daughter has a medium width foot and a medium width if your child has a narrower foot.
