We had to order 1 whole size up and it it was still tight to get her foot in the shoe. These have a very tight narrow opening.

all of the reviews say they run small so i ordered a size down for my little sister but they didn't fit her, they were too small. she has wide feet so i recommend buying your normal size.

I’m a size 4 in women’s and bought a 2.5. Adds an edgy look to your style but honestly can get uncomfortable in long walks as it’s a really flat shoe with almost no arch support.

This shoes are so adorable and cute! I had to return them though unfortunately! I saw reviews that said they are good for wide feet and not at all!! They are so narrow they are perfect for kids with skinny thin little feet. If your kid has chubby fat feet you are better to go with the newest vans for autism awareness . They are more pricey but are the best for chubby feet! I gave 5 stars because they are super cute and very light!

I bought this shoe for my 17mo old son. I have a hard time finding shoes for his chubby feet! They are wide which is not so much the problem as the chub on top his foot so these shoes so far are the only ones that don’t leave a mark after I take them off!! He seems happy and I’m happy that they don’t seem to be hurting his feet!

Super cute!! But best of all is the fact that these high tops don’t have to be tied/unties every-freaking-time they take them off/put them on!! Big help!!

We couldn’t even get my daughter’s foot into the shoe. The shoe is very narrow and the top is long. Too long to squeeze the foot in. Sad to return- they look cute.
