This shoes are hard enough to feel like they are real shoes, and soft enough for those little fit not to get squished. The leather is super soft and the velcro really helps keep them on a non-stop running little 14 month old girl. Great shoes!
Once again I can't really say what the socks are like as I purchased them to go in an "Operation Christmas Child Shoebox" as a part of Samaritan's Purse charitable giving project. We participate in this each and every Christmas Season and receive great joy in doing so. Uniform socks are always appreciated. Having said the above, the uniform socks are packaged well to include in our shoebox gift! You just can't go wrong putting something in those shoebox gifts that may allow a child in another country to attend school!
Ordered the 18 mos size for my granddaughter who was just 1 and has begun walking. These are not the most glamorous look for a little girl, but paired up with little white lace anklet socks I purchased on OS, they do fit her chubby little feet very well with some room to grow. Because she tends to curl up her feet when you begin to put shoes on her, the anklets in a silky nylon help her foot to slide into the shoe. The best part is the velcro band across the top of the shoe. It allows you to easily open up the shoe for foot insertion, then fit snug to close. She does keep these on since they really enclose her foot, unlike other little slip ons that she easily seems to lose in the house as she walks and crawls along.
