My grandson is a “ new “ walker so I thought these would be a good first shoe. He loves them and is excited to wear them. We are very pleased with this shoe.

My daughter has wide (chubby) feet. These fit perfectly. She hates wearing shoes because many don’t fit comfortably even though they are wide. She won’t stop wearing these.

Great shoe for my sturdy little man with his extremely wide and sturdy feet. I have had trouble finding shoes wide enough for my big toddler, and these (XW) are wide enough and also excellent quality. I am delighted with them.

My 7-year-old daughter adores these boots. She hates to take them off! They are super-cute. Sparkly. Comfortable for running around in. Easy to zip on and off. She likes the little extras -- the fur around the top and the little tassel on the zipper pull. She has a wide foot, so I ordered the wide version and it fits perfectly. She said that she is happy that it's not tight or pinching her foot. These definitely get a 2 thumbs up. Would recommend!

The design of the zipper makes it difficult to get a little foot to bend and slip inside the shoe. If the shoe was designed to have a wider opening, that would be better.

These are great boots. Fits my 5 year old daughter really well. She says they are super comfortable (and she is very sensitive to how her shoes fit). She loves the fur trim and the sparkles. I like that she can run and play in them because they are flexible and have a low soft heel, unlike some of the other boots they make for kids. Overall good shoe and we have tried many this season that didn't work.

My son seems happy with them, and is comfortable running, jumping, and being a generally active kid. He can put them on by himself easily. They seem sturdy, but he's only been wearing them for less than a week.

My daughter wears a custom orthotic insole so we struggle to find stylish looking shoes that can accommodate. Usually a wide width helps but again, that specification limits selection. So we were pretty excited to find this Stride Rite boot! Fits well and looks super cute. My daughter selected the gold boots. I think they're going to work great through winter and the holidays. The insole that came with the boots is quite flat and think we will probably remove them (they are tacked down) to give a little more wiggle room. FYI, there is definitely zero arch support built in to these – but that works for us since my kiddo has her own insoles.

Adorable style and fit, but within just a couple weeks of normal school wear, the outer black coating had worn off over both toes and made them look very cheap and junky.

2nd pair of same shoe (different color) for my grandson. He familiarly slipped them on and velcroed the strap. He wore them for the entire rest of the day. I'd say it was a great endorsement of comfort and fit.

As now I see other reviewers posted, I purchased these shoes for my four year old son 10 months ago. He did not start wearing them until 6-7 months ago. He pointed out to me last week that the shoe is literally falling apart. I have only purchased stride rite made-to-play sneakers as I have two boys a year apart and have been able to pass the sneakers down to the younger one. Two for the price of one basically. Well unfortunately that is not the case with this pair. I don't know how or why they are ant different from previous pairs and I'm extremely disappointed in the quality. He is not extremely rough with them, he does not drag his feet or toes when running/walking/playing/riding his bike or scooter. He actually wears Crocs during the summer and switched to sneakers two months ago when Pre-K started so we only got about 4 months of wear out of them. That's just appalling and ludicrous.
