I really think these shoes are cute and I've seen a lot of kids wearing them but my daughter tried them on and they are just too wide for her. I like the idea, but this brand is better for normal to wide feet.
My kids have wide feet and some of the other ecological, fair-minded shoe companies make shoes that do NOT work for us. These fit my over-sized 2 year-old's feet very well and are easily taken on and off, but stay on for all of his toddle-running to and fro. We got the same style for my 6-year old and they have been a care-free shoe for us so far (though only worn on vacation-- we have cooler weather at home).
I bought these for both my 3 year old and 6 year old. After wearing other similar shoes a couple of years ago and dealing with the stench of both shoes and feet, I tried these in an act of desperation. They are awesome. They are durable. They are incredibly easy to clean. And look as good as new after you clean them. They are somewhat difficult to get on my toddler's feet, but not terribly. The popstar orange goes perfectly with the Ishya Flutter Dress and works well with the other dresses I got as well.
The quality of these shoes are worth it. I bought a similar pair of shoes at a major chain, and the white rubbed off almost immediately. I've taken to pairing it with shorts, jeans and even dresses. Anything to get my money's worth. It's great for water wear, and just everyday wear. Sizing seemed to be okay for my child's normal width feet.
My 21 month old has lived in these most of the summer. Not only can they get wet, but they are a closed toe shoe (which is required at daycare) that she can almost put on without help. She loves wearing them and if I ask her what shoes she wants to wear she will regularly pick these. We have pink and red.
