The aim of these shoes are AMAZING. Then instep is a bit shallow for a child with thicker feet (high instep…not arch), however the rubber accommodates rather quickly. My son absolutely LOVES them, however given the marketed durability and all-weather and washing ability the material around the top of the foot does not hold up well…after a couple washing and water activities the green began to crack and peel away. Aside of that, the trim color around the base of the shoe (Blue) does not hold up to the task of a rambunctious 4 year old, as that color is no longer visible at the toe and around the edges in some parts. I would LOVE to buy another pair, however, I will be writing the manufacturer about these unfortunate issues for such a fabulous shoe. I would give a 5 star, but…because we’ve only had them since June and this began in September, I can’t. Toddler shoe design and constructions should be more durable/
My son loves these shoes. They fit perfectly. We’ll be putting them to the test in the island on our vacation.. the colors are vibrant and they fit comfortably..
