I just received these shoes for my Grandson and they are adorable. The look on his face when he walked and they squeeked was priceless. He was measured at Stride Rite for a 4.5 and that is what I ordered and they fit perfect. They are made of a very nice leather which is soft and fits his little feet very well. He is one year old and started walking a couple months ago and had no problem from the moment they were put on. I loved them so much, I just ordered a larger size as well. Great price for a great little shoe!! And they are so cute.
