I bought these shoes for my grandson in blue and red and I love them. These are very similar to shoes I bought my son's 24 years ago and looked everyone locally and couldn't find them anymore. The leather is so soft and moves with their little feet. They are a snap to get on and off with the velcour strap. I would say they run a little on the small side so if you toddler is close to the upper age get the larger size. Color is just as it looks. Got the red for those Christmas outfits. You will love these!!
