Bought for my Granddaughter, very classy, comfy and even extra insoles provided. Even cuter on with tights, anklets or knee socks. She loves them so great buy in my book!

This is our second pair. Love the shoe, it is top quality and holds up well. My daughter uses it for her uniform on dressy days. We have never had an issue with the Velcro giving out and when she grows out of this size I will be buying the next size up.

Every time my daughter wears these shoes people comment! They are amazing and she just looks so so cute wearing them. My only issue is getting them on. They are difficult to put on so be prepared to change a diaper without remove the shoes! But once on AMAZING! Want to buy the next size up but sold out!!!

Very cute and classic. The Bone Pearlized color is a little more old-lady than I was hoping (really wanted a cream color) but not bad. These are definitely dress shoes, with firmer leather so there is no way they could be as comfortable as sneakers or more-casual Mary Janes, but my 3-year-old says they are comfortable and will wear them to play.

Purchased these for my 4 year old daughter to wear for her school's holiday play (she also has pink pair she loves). She has wide feet so it can be a bit challenging to find cute shoes in her size and width. These shoes are super cute and comfortable. I like that they provide you with an insert for medium and wide width feet, which allows you to tailor the shoe to your child's feet. The closure is Velcro so my daughter can put and take off these shoes on her own. This shoe is sturdy and she can comfortably play on the playground with them. The only recommendation I have is to make sure your child is wearing these socks that are above the ankle. My daughter wore these with ankle socks and the shoe ate her sock. By the end of her play, her socks were deep in her shoe.

I bought these shoes for my son to wear to a dressy family event and they were perfect. They are well made and dressy enough for any occasion. The shoe was comfortable for my fussy and active child who if it was up to him would go barefoot all of the time. The toe was perfectly rounded so he could "wiggle his toes" and the rubber sole provided traction and comfort. Some reviews had issue with them not being velcro on a dress shoe?? I am fine with dress shoes being laces. I tied them for him and double knotted them so they stayed tied. My only regret is they do not come in larger sizes. These were excellent value for the price. FootMates, please make them in sizes 2+!!! Thank you!

Just wondering if anyone else had trouble with these shoes cracking. I love the style and would like to have them in several colors, but my son has only worn them to church a few times and the white toes and heels have long cracks all over. I’ve never seen shoes do this. Total waste of money.

I love Footmates but the pair that I received has a horrible, horrible smell. It is so bad that we can smell them as soon as we walk into my daughter’s room. They are unworn so I can’t blame my 4 year old’s feet! ?? I am guessing it’s the chemicals they used? My girls have worn Footmates for years and I’ve never experienced this before.

Would have been nice if both shoes in the box were the same size. We received one 6 toddler and one 6.5 toddler in the same box. Unfortunately it was too late to get a new pair for our event. Had to go to target last minute.

Our favorite brand of children’s shoes. Just wish they went larger. These shoes hold up to children’s play, yet are dressy enough to wear on Sunday. They can also be worn larger for growing room without the shoe creasing.

Giving 4 stars for comfort as my daughter has blisters on her left foot, seems like the back side of the shoes is too rigid unfortunately. They are better/tolerable with long socks. Otherwise these shoes are great and provide an excellent support for my daughter who just started to walk recently. Of all her shoes these are the must supporting shoes, and they are super cute too!

It’s hard to determine how well they fit a 3 year old, but he likes them and keeps them on, no blisters or redness, fit well with socks. They are really cute with all his dressy clothes. Very happy with purchase , $5 less than other vendors!

Ordered these a half size smaller for my granddaughter as instructed by Zappos, however, these run true to size so I am returning them for the next size. They are beautifully made classic Mary Janes.
