My daughter loves these shoes! They were comfortable right out of the box, and she can walk for hours in them even without socks.

Super cute, bought for my daughters hip hop class. She loves them. I ordered a half size larger so that she could wear them for a little longer and they don't seem too big

loved these slip ons and had several pairs in toddler sizes for my son in the past... bought an 11 in the "little kid" version, and like others, he could not fit his foot in. the elastic barely had any give or room. very disappointing bc these shoes are otherwise great. we would have bought many more over the next few years

My son loves his vans and they are so cute on him! He’s 2, wears a 3T and the 8.5 is a great fit with a little room to grow.

These shoes are so classic and cute...BUT, the quality is not what I would expect from Vans brand. The velcro closures seemed too long and started to come apart quite quickly. We were pretty disappointed and the shoes are practically unwearable now. I won't buy these again.

I don’t think the two pairs of size 11 1/2 and two sizes of size 11 (I have twins) were authentic Vans. The fit was terrible...very narrow and short. The Vans logo on the back of all four shoes was not smooth like other Vans’ logos. All of the logos had a large bump right in the middle. This is probably why they fit so terribly.

I bought two pair of these - one for my son (5) and one for my daughter (7). The shoes are cute, but they don't hold up very well at all! The side elastic started to pull apart after about 2 weeks of wear. At this point the kids are still wearing them, but the elastic is almost non existent. They are more like flip flops now. I would say these are either cheaply made shoes or poor quality material shoes - they definitely should have held up better. Would not buy again.

Bought for my 13 month old grandson. Had to force shoe onto his foot and still couldn’t get shoe all they way on. If they came in a wide, they would of fit perfectly. Super cute shoe otherwise. Just defeated by fat, baby feet!

Toddler Vans are too adorable! They fit well, though a bit stiff for new walkers.

I got my son matching pairs for our tip to Cali this past March. He did not complain one bit about his feet hurting when we went to Disneyland. I love these slip ons (mostly because I don't have to worry about my boy tripping over untied laces haha)!

Second pair of vans o have tried to purchase and my 7 yo can’t get his foot in the opening. The shoe is far too narrow. My kids feet are not wide.

My son typically wears a 12 in vans right now, so I ordered the 12’s in slides— they were unfortunately too small bc the foam around the strap. 13’s fit perfect!

Although they appeared long enough, my daughter could not get her foot in the shoe. The ankle is too narrow and does not have any give.
