This is the third pair I have bought from Zappos. I could not be happier. Plae is a fantastic brand. I wish Zappos sold plae’s whole line. I can say that the navy does not hold pigment as well as the grey. It shows a little more fading over time. Plae dose say this is expected. As for play ability they are fanatic. My son climbs and plays better than most kids at the park because of the better grip.

We love Plae shoes! I started buying them when my son would wear through the top of his (what I thought were nice quality) shoes. Plae shoes withstand and are in good condition even after he has grown out of them. It seems 3 years is the mark where they are tough on shoes and we become exclusive to Plae. I also like that they can wear them to somewhat dressy events and they don’t appear to be as casual as tennis shoes.

Love these sandals. My son had a pair last summer and they were great for a busy toddler. He was able to get them on and off easily by himself. Easy to clean and dried quickly. We got a pair for this summer and he can't wait to wear them outside.

My niece loved these sneakers ! She put them on immediately and she was off. I asked her later how did they feel ? She said really good and she loved the color...I told her mom that they are machine washable and she was Delighted ! I thought they were beautiful,very well made. I think there will be another pair in our future. Thanks Zappos!

Most durable shoe for a little guy in my opinion. These are our 3rd pair from this brand. It is a little on the pricey side but worth it in my opinion because you don’t need to buy another pair every 2 months. These stand the test of time for a very active little boy or girl.

We got these for our 6 yo son because he was destroying every pair of sneakers he had within 2 months! These are going to hold up until he grows out of them I believe.. will definitely purchase again when he needs a larger size

This is the 2nd time I’ve bought this exact shoe, just in a different size. My daughter loves the color. I love the straps. So much easier than making sure her shoes are tied and “exactly the same knot on both”.

My son loves the shoes and he said the feel good. He’s 5 and rough on shoes but these have held up to daily wear and tear at school. The only frustrating thing is the straps come out sometimes and the fuzzy part of the Velcro has worn out halfway through the school year. Plae does have an option to purchase new straps but unfortunately I can’t find ones that match the pair we bought. Great shoe overall though!

My son loves these shoes. They are comfortable, light weight, and very flexible. I love how easy they are for him to put on and take off. So far they’ve held up to some heavy duty playground play. We will be purchasing another pair when he outgrows these.

Great shoes for toddler. These are the third pair I have purchased and each was durable and remained in great shape and looking new for months. Very sturdy and cute too.

I only buy Plae shoes for my boys. These shoes are the only ones that my son doesn’t destroy in a month. They are made so well that I will be able to use them as hand me downs for my younger son. They seem comfortable and I wash them often.

The straps are a little Short for his wide feet so I may order longer ones. Other than that we love these shoes.

We had these shoes in silver a size smaller, and it was the only shoe she would wear, so we just bought the magenta version- she loves them (again) - they hold up well in the washer (on delicate), have great support and cushioning, and the toe protection on the big toe helps out! I would highly recommend.

We are really impressed with Plae shoes for our kids, overall. This style with the mesh seems very durable and my five year old can do all the outdoor stuff he loves and they have held up to his activities very well. This is our 3rd pair for him and he loves the fun color combinations. My husband loves that they are AFO friendly. That being said, the pair we are replacing with these new ones were a bit of a disappointment. They had significantly more leather/suede (or a suede-like material) on the sides (they were a blue camo) and the inside areas just below the big toes started to rip along the seam very quickly. Since it didn't happen with the 1st pair I decided to try again with new ones that were closer to the ones we had originally purchased and loved. And, since he's five, I let him wear the ones with the compromised seams for quite a while. When I could finally see sock I knew it was time to replace them! The pair that ripped were purchased directly from Plae, not Zappos, and I regret buying from the company direct because I'm sure that Zappos would have stood by their product and resolved the issue. When I contacted Plae customer service I never heard back.

This the third pair I have purchased for my son and daughter. Because they have wide feet, it limits the brands we have to choose from. The recommendation from Plae is that if your child has a wide foot, just buy half a size larger. This is one the pair of shoes I can get away with buying one whole size larger without them tripping over themselves, so we get a lot of life out of them. The nice thing about these shoes are that if they outgrow the tabs before the shoe (which is what was happening with Stride Rite and Saucony), you can just buy larger tabs for about $5. My kids will get about six months of wear since they only wear them to school.

I fell in love with the yellow color, but my kid preferred the grey. Still cute though. Looks like the insoles come out in 2 pieces so you can adjust the sizing. They were a bit stiff at first, but after some breaking in - they seem really comfy on him. Hard to tell, though, as the kid doesn't really say much.
