My daughter loves this shoe. She was disappointed when we went to the Vans store and they only carried it in "adult" size. Same exact color, but in her size.

Great shoe, just what the toddler ordered! My daughter has a dress code and needed a solid color sneaker for school. These shoes are perfect: good-looking, comfortable (for a discriminating six year old), and great for running around at recess.

I bought these for my 21 year old daughter (she has very tiny feet) in a size 4. They are a little big for her, so I would say that the sizes are not true to size. If you would normally wear a 4 you may want to go down to a 3.5. Even though these are a bit big for her, she has worn them several times and gotten a lot of compliments. The color is a deep purple (very pretty) and they are super comfortable. The price at Zappos is great!

Service - This is the first time I have ordered from Zappos. I will order again. The shoe was on back-order and Zappos contacted me when they came in. The service was excellent!

I bought the beige pair; they are so adorable, unfortunately very uncomfortable. I only wear them when I know I won't be walking much.

These are absolutely perfect!! Very Classy!! I have really small legs (about 12.5 in around). I have to layer my socks BUT out of everything that I've tried, these fit and look the best! I'm very happy with these!! They are pretty comfortable too! Highly recommended!!!

Blue Jewel Vans Kids Shoes - I love this shoe!!!! It was little uncomfortable but it looked great!!! I wore white socks with them when I first got them and the dye turned them blue! It comes clean in the washing machine though. Not sure if they're washable... but you could maybe try hand-washing in cold water.

I bought these for my 9 year old son. After a seamless exchange (thanks Zappos) I got the correct size. They seem to run rather big.

Tammy

from Idaho

I’ve been buying Vans for my son for 5 years. They are simply the best shoes for boys. He wears them all year long at school, home, playing, etc and they hold up just so wonderfully. He is 8 years old and he is wearing a size 13.5. I got him a size 1 at first, but they were way too big. He does have smaller feet than other kids his age though. As always, Zappos is awesome with returns and this time was no different!

Make your little GIRLS cool as all get out with these cute grey Vans. I was looking for neutral color that wouldn't look like my kids were caught in dirt warfare after the first week. These held up to the dodgeball loving, dirty monkey fest of school for over 4 months. Loved them!!! Now they've grown so we'll buy more!!!

Bought these for my six year old in the Pewter color. They seemed to run true to size and he thought they were really comfortable, he loved them. Vans and a great shoe and honestly, you can't go wrong with them. He'll get a lot of wear out of these.

I bought my daughter a pair in the pewter color (to match mine) and they are exactly the same as the adult version. Very cute and they go well with just about any outfit. They're comfortable and easy to get on and off.
